As a fan of the trilogy "Fifty Shades of Grey" I was BEYOND THRILLED when the author, E.L. James talked about a possible 4th book!

Watch the video below (the answer is at the :35 mark).

In need of another Fifty Shades
The ending of book three was such a tease. There has to be a another book coming out. I definitely would like to read a trilogy from Christian's perspective. The books were absolutely AMAZING. I read them and then got everyone girlfriend I know to read them and they all have said the same thing. I am so looking forward to the book!!!!!!!
05/19/2012 4:49PM
PLEASEEEEEEE!
There needs to be a fourth book!!! PLEASEEEEEEE!
05/19/2012 10:28PM
Keeping fingers crossed!!
I said the same thing last week; I would read this trilogy again if they were written from Christains perspective!! The meet 50 Shades at the end of Freed was brilliant!
05/20/2012 10:04PM
Fifty's perspective
After reading the trilogy and the brief perspective from Christian, I am longing for a full version from Mr. Grey. Please consider sharing it with us. Thank you.

Begging
I would read this again from Christian's perspective and I would read this if it continued the story from Ana's perspective. I would pretty much read anything else you have to write about these characters. I was absolutely wrapped in this series. I swear I haven't done laundry all week. That is about how long it took for me to read them all and that's only because I have a 2 year old. Whenever he was asleep I was reading. This is an amazing story and I really hope that you continue their story or give us some more incite into Mr. Grey's mind.
05/24/2012 9:22AM
Not ready to give Christian up!
I'm so not ready to leave the world of Fifty Shade...please I (beg) you on behalf of women all over the world to write a 4th and 5th and 6th. Reading from Christians perspective makes me greedy for so much more of this fantasy, I really hope this isn't the end. I thionk we all see a litlle part of ourselves in Ana and I know I see a lot of Christian in my husband ( without the romantic parts). though I get no work done becaise of these books I can't put them down.
05/25/2012 1:16PM
Just finished fifty shades freed
I read all 3 books in 3 days and im hoping that a 4th book will be written . Pleaseeeee :-)
05/26/2012 11:04PM
longing for more....
i saw myself in both christian and ana . they made me look at sex in a different way and made me more open to try things with my husband i was not open to try before. thank you i have so enjoyed reading these books they made me come alive. i would so love to read it from christians point of view..i too am very sad to leave my fifty shades world and hope for more and more... i ache for more... thank you for making me laugh, cry, worry and fall in love with these two.. lol my groin longs for more :)
05/28/2012 8:24AM
Fifty Shades of Grey - I'm so addicted!
All I can say is please E L James continue writing, I didn't give enough. I could read so much more on just Christian's perspective.

HEART FELT...
I have read all three books in 3 days- yes i am a fast reader....I fell in love with Grey's undying love for ana and his courage under fire for her....I would love love love 3 more books. Not onl for the steamy romance (which got a little redundant by book three), but for the thought and hope that there may still be those men who truly fall and love a woman with every part of them. ahhhhh, it's a bliss to daydream about that, true love...
06/06/2012 9:01AM
grey is definitely my new favorite color!!!!
;-)
06/06/2012 8:26PM

50 shades addiction
I am almost done with book 3(only took 6 days) and i am already starting to have a feeling of dread. I don't want to finish the series. I have fallen in love with the story and the characters(right down to Taylor and Ms. Jones) there has got to bemore books!
06/09/2012 9:15PM
Fifty Shades of Christian PLEASE!
You just can't tease your beloved readers with that blip of Christian's side of the experiance. I want to get inside of his head too! These are the best books I've ever read. Pure genious!
06/10/2012 8:36AM
More 50 shades!
I just got done reading all 3 in less than 4 days..I couldn't put them down! I now sit here wanting to be back in that story, and wanting more, that I am tempted to start them all over even though I just finished them last night. I would love a 4th book of just there life now, we got an Epilogue, but maybe it could be about there life now that she is pregnant and the birth of their first son, instead of an Epilogue. There would definitely be a story if you have made one up to this point, we don't know everything about his struggles and now that she is pregnant, there would have to be times when he is still struggling with it. I would also like 3 books just in Christians perspective, it would be so interesting
06/10/2012 1:21PM
Ana's Age
Anyone notice in book 1 and 2 Ana is 21 and in book 3 she is 22 and on her birthday she turns 22 again?
06/10/2012 4:31PM
I BEG OF YOU!!!!!
OH PRETTYYYYYYYY PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE WRITE ANOTHER...... NOW THAT IM DONE WITH ALL THE BOOKS I FEEL LIKE MY HEARTS BEEN RIPPED OUT OF MY CHEST BECAUSE I LOVE THESE BOOKS TO DEATH!!
06/11/2012 3:18AM
Re: Ana's age
She turned 23.
06/11/2012 3:28AM
:-(
Please make more books (continuation of Ana & Christian). I read the last book really slow (it took me 2 days to read) because I didn't want it to end. I finished reading it 2 days ago but I'm feeling so sad.... I miss Ana & Christian. You have to make one in Christians perspective then a continuation after their son's 2nd bday there after ;-) Please :-(
06/11/2012 7:49AM
i hope to god theres a 4th!!!i
I LOVED the 50 shades triology!! I hope to go that E L James writes a 4th but this time from Christians POV!! I'd love to know how he felt about Ana and their first encounter!! and maybe bring it upto their present life....even if the book is basedon thier life as it stands now but maybe with him taking a glimpse back into their 1st meeting!! x

06/20/2012 10:12AM
Please Continue with more
I read all three books in one week, I couldn't put it down, I just wanted to see what would happen next, what adventure, what heartbreak, what they could overcome together. Please continue with a book for continiuing their lives into their children's life. EL James is a natural writer. Can't thank her enough, it was a breath of fresh air reading the books.
06/20/2012 1:39PM
PLEASE WRITE MORE!!!!

The question is....
I love the idea of seeing a book (or books) from Christian's perspective, But as a woman, I wonder, if we knew how he felt (thought)...... would we still like him? He was not the nicest when they first met, and threw some major tantrums thought the book, as so did she......
07/20/2012 6:14AM
wishing for meet fifty shades
For a person who was not that interested in reading books ,i chose to read this trilogy . Also my husband said maybe i should. It is the best thing i ever did ! It gave me passion and understanding as to why people enjoy reading so much .Also gave my husband and i ideas back in the bedroom. It also left me wanting more , of MR CHRISTINE GREYS perspective..I really do hope the author rewrites the trilogy from Christiene Greys perspective!!!
07/20/2012 7:42AM

Further Additions to the Trilogy would be welcome!
I have heard so much about these books and as such I went out and purchased all 3 in one hit as I wanted to form my own opinion about these books.. The intrigue, the mystery, the romance and erotica was great! I read all 3 book in under 5 days... I loved the Chritsian / Anastasia mix, it was great... Just couldn't / didn't want to put the book down as I was eager to find out was going to come next.. Very much looking to read further installments and as noted above, it would be good to read the books again from Christian's perspective... He is one kinky guy, but also a very loveable & caring guy as we'll... I agree with the other readers more is needed about the Christian / Anastasia saga.. Please E L James..!
07/31/2012 5:19PM
Yes 4th book!!! That's all I want for Christmas!!!!
I want E L James imagination. Gosh it feels like E L James cast a spell on the book. I read all three & I was lost in Christians & Anastasia's world. I know it's just fantasy but its a d****Perfect Fantasy!!! I don't want it to end.
08/01/2012 4:10PM
missing the book
I would love for the books to either continue from Anastasia's point of view or start new books about other characters in the books. I would love to know about Ethan and Mia, and also Kate and Elliot. But i do feel so attached to this book is was almost Ridiculous. I so wanted to know how the books ended but at the same time I didn't want to be through reading them. I have to agree with others, I feel slightly lost now that I don't have my Fifty Shades books to read... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE continue this series in some way, and soon
08/02/2012 2:28PM
obessed, need to read more
This book had me so intregead. I could not put it down. Reading all the comments I see it had the same effect so many other women. I started book pne on friday. A friend let me read it. By Saturday i was buying book two, Monday bought book three. now I want to read it again. I do think it will be shame to make it into a movie.(of course I would go see it though) Movies never do the book the true justis. At the end of book three was a tease. I would read the whole series again in his perspective. E L you did a good job written this book. Cant wait !!!!! ;)
08/03/2012 4:07AM
christian's perspective

08/04/2012 5:39PM

I just got done reading the third book and i couldnt put it down at all i got obbessed it and my husband was kinda mad bc he told me that i always had my nose in the book which was true lol..And E L James did a amazing job writing it hope she does write a 4th one (cross fingers)!
08/04/2012 7:45PM

Please i'm begging you to continue to write more to the Ana and Christian story because all us women out here need it.
08/06/2012 5:16AM
Wow
As I am not a reader last book I read was diary of Ann frank I had to see what all the hype was about. Well I picked up book 1 on Sunday by Wednesday I had read all 3 of them. E l james captures so much in these books. Granted when I finished them I had to read them all over again. As someone who does not read books you have truly pulled me into the story as if I was there the whole time. There has to be book 4,5 and 6 in this story it can't be left like this. Please please when is the next one . Xxx
08/06/2012 2:28PM
Mr&mrs.grey
Please write the books on his point very very sweet lovable. Man tell his side PLEASE.
08/07/2012 12:19PM
Please, I beg :-)
I can't stop reading them over and over and over again. As another said earlier, I too would read a trilogy on Christian's perspective, perhaps, one as a prequel.
08/07/2012 4:59PM
PLEASEE!
I was stuck in the room for a week reading all three books! I am completely obsessed with Ana and Christian! Knowing Christians side of the story would clear up a lot about him since he was always so quiet with Ana. I would also LOVE LOVE too see his attitude toward his children or if he were to have a little girl !
08/08/2012 3:54AM
Begging
Please have a 4th and 5th and 6th book! I'm so addicted and I can't get over about it. I reread the 3 books again..I feel lost without it. I don't even bother to eat while reading them. Please please please.:)))
08/08/2012 5:03AM

I would read 50 more fifty shades
08/15/2012 3:39PM

08/15/2012 4:42PM

Please you just can not leave us hanging after that little tease I didn't think it was possible but the book in Christian point of view its even hotter then Ana's point of view please write more books from Christian's point of view I read the trilogy in four days i'm addicted!
08/16/2012 11:43AM
I NEED MORE
I was left wanting more. Please please do it all over again from Christians view. That would be even more errotic. Can't Wait. LOL
08/17/2012 6:24AM
Am lost :((
I am so sad I have finished the last Fifty Shades book. It's the first book I have ever read!! (at 27yrs old I know that's bad) I never expected to feel like this!! I miss Christian & Ana!! E L James PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE write more & more books on them. I don't know what to do with my self feels like I've been dumped :-/ I loved the story so much it had me gripped on the first page!! We need more of Fifty PLEASE!!!
08/19/2012 12:16AM
sooo hot
I want more of this couple. Just don't let them cheat or break up in the new books. Their love for each other is way too hot for them to ever have the desire to cheat.
08/19/2012 4:28AM
sooner rather than 'laters', please !
This could be th new "sex in the city "., with periodic secquels over the next few years. I was really looking forward to spending time with C&A in the new house. Now that all the crazy stuff had died down, just to enjoy the 'romance' and the parenting. Looking forward to the movie. The beautyshop lady, tall blond, would be perfect as 'mrs. Robinson" Eagerly waiting, along with millions of other women. thanks
08/19/2012 4:27PM
Hmm
I loved the trilogy and just finished reading it. However I want the story to continue as them with a family and the children growing up, not a story from Christian's point of view like the end of the third book. It's all repeated!
08/20/2012 4:37AM
MORE MORE MORE!!!
please please please write some more books love to know how it was from christian's side!!!!!1
08/21/2012 2:36PM

08/23/2012 6:19AM
Please write meet fifty shades, forth book.
A mate from work let me borrow her first fifty shades, not having read for many years i was uplifted. i found myself reading at work, behind a bar which was interesting with the many comments i get from women and men. I couldnt put it down, i wanted to know more and more about Ana and Christian and they're story that became more and more compelling as i read through all three books. The very last part of the third book got me so breathless that i found myself needing more. Fifty first christmas was wrote so well and made me feel great sorrow and understanding for Christian. And then the last part Meet fifty shades, it got me even more. I've always wanted to know his side of the story! He's such a character, what woman doesnt want a Christian Grey? Thank you E L James for this oppotunity and i really really hope theres the forth book, Meet Fifty Shades. many thanks Danni xxx
08/23/2012 3:12PM
Fourth book!
I have died a thousand deaths since I finished Fifty Shades Freed. I don't want it to be over. Please write more! Christian and Ana's relationship reflect me and my boyfriend so much, and I would love to see how the rest of their life goes. Keep it going as long as you can! I am totally in love with the Greys!
08/23/2012 3:53PM

08/25/2012 2:25AM
Please make a 4th book or better yet 5 or 6
I've loved loved these books and I haven't wanted to finish the last book as I can't imagine not being able to read this awesome series anymore! I've enjoyed the excitement and thrill of this amazing couple! Christian and Ana are so awesome together! Please continue the series with book #4 and even a 5,6 keep it going! Best books ever!!!!!!
08/25/2012 4:04PM

08/26/2012 9:31PM
Fifty Shades of Grey...
OH YES!!!! We definetley have to have book number four!!! I was so not wanting the last book Fifty Shades Freed end!!! I have been depressed so I am reading all three all over again.. A BIG KUDOS to E L James... such a phenomenal writer!!!!
08/27/2012 9:03PM
touching...
I had heard of this trilogy for a while, somewhat embarrassed to admit I wanted to read it, based on its sexual stigma.. I am so thankful that I did! This story has definitely touched me, possessed me, and obsessed me... and I am left in it's after shock now that I've finished reading it.. a fourth book (and more) would be better than amazing! Although, I'm not sure more will ever quench our fifty thirst... kudos to you, dear EL James , for touching our hearts, giving us an incredible perspective, and igniting our fires! I look forward to whatever it is you write in the future... :)
08/28/2012 11:51PM
Im Addicted!!!!!!!
Please do all us 50 shades fans a favour and please keep writing about Christian and Ana... i could not put the books down and told so many of my mates to read them and they are all now addicted!!! Reading from Christians point of veiw would be awesome i loved at the end of Freed reading about how chirstian first laid eyes on Ana and what he was thinking!! Please please please bring out more books!!! P.s these books have spiced up our love life and for that i say THANK YOU :)
08/30/2012 11:23PM
My new addiction
I am above and beyond being addicted to these books! I just bought all three of them a week ago and I am now on the 3rd one! There HAS to be a 4th, 5th, 6th & to infinity with Fifty Shades. I am absolutely IN LOVE with Christian Grey! Haha. Pleaseeeee keep writing! (:

09/02/2012 12:39AM
Has it been done before?
So addicted to Christain and Ana. E.L. thanks for sprucing up my 16 year marriage! I would love the trilogy from christain's perspective. Has that ever been done before? One trilogy with two different views. I say go for it i am not ready to say goodbye.
09/02/2012 7:38AM

Please! Please! Please don't stop writing about Christian and Ana!!! For the short time of reading it I was sooo addicted to it that I could't do anything else!! And when I finished the 3rd book all I could do was to cry! I so hope there willbe a lot more books!!! Doesn't really matter if it's from Christian's perspective (which would be amazing!!!) of from Ana's as long as there will be more :) Pleaseeeee keep writing!!
09/03/2012 5:32PM
Being 30-something makes me feel a bit old...
Now that I'm done reading all three I'm just wondering: will Christian and Ana go through their thirty-something's the same way we 'mortals' do?? :oP Would love a fourth book! A trilogy from Christian's perspectivewould be awesome too!
09/03/2012 6:54PM
OMG

09/03/2012 6:57PM

I would love a fourth book but i dont want a repeat of fifty shades cuz i know what happens.... I want the author to continue with ana and christians life with their kids and their struggles as newly parent... i dont care whos view it is... i just dont want a repat of what i read.
09/05/2012 9:36AM

09/07/2012 6:31AM

Love listening to it even better than reading it Becca Batto does a great job off to plug ear phones in again next chapter yippeee
09/07/2012 6:00PM
4th ...5th...6th Books....Will be a must read
YESSSS Please!!!! From Grey's point of view, that will be amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
09/08/2012 8:44AM
All the books in greys view?
E.L James definitely needs to write not just one book, but all of them in Greys view, we'll get a better understanding of why he is how he is, and it will fill in a lot of blanks with his moods!!! Please please please give us more books!!!
09/08/2012 3:13PM
there should me more
E.L James is the best writer ever. i really hope there is going to be a forth book and i hope more to come :D !!!!!
09/09/2012 7:53AM
Agree ALL!! books in greys POV
Would love to know the conversastion between Christian an elliot on the way to the club after Anas Drunk phone call. Oh an what was going on in his head when he was on his knees begging Ana not to leave him again.What about when his thoughts on the phonewhen Ana was @ the bank. Man So hungry for more GIVE US MORE!! lol
09/09/2012 6:48PM
Grey POV
I really really pray that a 4th book is wrote. I fell in love with Christian and the whole story. The last little chapter at the end of the 3rd book from Christian's POV when he saw Anastasia for the first time was just such a tease. I hope another comes out... even more!! I LOVED THE BOOKS. I would like to know what all goes through Christains's head from beginning to end... all the things that were unspoken that he thought of but never said. All his conversations behind Anastasia's back when she wasn't around and how he truly felt about her... his longing for her... missing her. How his heart changed after he met Ana. That would be the greatest thing ever.
09/11/2012 7:12AM
theaqt
please please please continue writing the 4th book, looking forward to know Christian's point of view about the story... what is thinking, what he feels when Ana left him, I really love to know what's going on inside his head how empty and painful for a young man who has everything but who doesn't have the heart to love... much information to know... so EXCITED!!!!!
09/12/2012 6:44PM
Continuation to the trilogy in anas perspective please:)
Loved loved loved these books and how it was told by Ana. Would love a continuation on there life now from there son's second birthday and more about how Ana ran greys publishing, taylor and miss jones, Kate and Elliot but mostly more of Ana and christian and there love and there family:)
09/14/2012 3:05AM
Please a 4th book as told in Anna's way.
Please make a 4th book from Anna's perspective I just loved the other three. But if you are wanting to write the books over again from Christians perspective, I would read those as well. But I think we do need at least another one through Anna's eyes. Just loved the books, have not read like this in years and loved it. X
09/16/2012 6:09PM
!!!!!NEEDING MORE!!!!!
please pretty pretty please with 'vanilla' and sprinkles on top....write more books in christians perspective its so much more exciting and arousing especially his thoughts....its soooooo much 'MORE' intriguing and oh so sexy....please write more books for both the bonuses it will help us understand his 50 shades of fuckedupness. Please.......begging on-my-knees anonymous
10/03/2012 11:10AM
A good read...since I read 50 shades 3 times
I became completely addicted after reading 50 shades. I felt like I was an addict that needed a fix, haha....so here are some good books that fill the void. Bared to you and its sequeal Reflected in you. There is a third coming out in March of 2013, which Im already waiting for. Gabriel's Inferno, and the sequeal Gabriel's Rapture. These two were award winning books, and let me tell you...hot hot hot If you need a fix, these are must reads
10/06/2012 12:41PM
I'm am so lost without Christian and Ana!
I have never been so obsessed with a book in my life. I have been re-reading the last two over and over. The first book is loaned out and I am so ready to get it back so I can re-read it too. Please continue the series from Christians point of view. I thought I was crazy because I was so depressed after finishing the Trilogy. I cried uncontrollably for three days after finishing them. They certainly spiced up my marriage and instead of a red room, we have a burgundy room! Thanks and please bring them back in a new trilogy from Christians view!
10/09/2012 9:39PM
please i want more christan
i have never loved a book so much in my life. please write somthing from christans point of view i got so teased when i read the end.... i will buy any books you make about this couple
10/17/2012 2:27PM
I want more!
I read all three books in 1 week. I was amazing, all books are boring now. It makes me want to read more. Christian's perspective was brilliant but I really want the continuity of the book, about what happens in Christian and Ana's life and how their kids grow up and how they cope up with them. It will be amazing!
10/22/2012 1:00PM

Great visit from Mom-Mom!
My Mother-In-Law's been in town for the last 10 days, visiting from Phoenix. There are 2 reasons that Mom-Mom came to visit: to see her Grandchildren and …to see her grandchildren! Seriously! That's perfectly fine, we KNOW she loves us too! Wait, make that 3 reasons…our house is spotless now too…THANKS MOM! I think we've shown Mom a great time during her visit. Sarah and the kids took her to the Milwaukee County Zoo, then a pool day at Cool Waters and the last thing we did was Festa Italiana! THAT was her favorite! Festa Italiana was AMAZING! We went on Friday night and HOLY RICEBALLS! And lasagna sticks! And zucchini sticks! And eggplant sticks! And calamari! And CHOCOLATE CANNOLIS! SOOOO many great foods to eat, music to hear, things and people to see…was a great experience! Can't wait for next year! As always, THANK YOU for reading and for listening to 99.1 The Mix! Hope you have a GREAT week! -Mark Summers

Crown Rot Causing Sudden Wilting and Death on Ajuga (Bugleweed)
Sudden wilting, yellowing and death of ajuga, also known as bugleweed, means crown rot may have invaded the planting. This fungal disease is most common in warm wet or humid weather. It first appears as sudden wilting and dieback in colder climates and yellowing and death of plants in warmer areas. The stems of infected plants turn brown or black and rot. This disease can be introduced into the garden on infected plants or soil or spread by tools and water. Since the disease is in the soil it is difficult to eradicate. Remove and destroy infected plants and the surrounding soil immediately. Be sure to disinfect your tools with a one-part bleach and nine-part water solution during and after the process. If the disease continues to spread or has destroyed much of the planting, it is time to start over in a new location with disease-free plants. A bit more information: Reduce the risk of crown rot to healthy plantings by thinning groundcover plantings every few years or before they become overcrowded. And avoid planting crown rot susceptible plants in the bed where the Ajuga died. Consider amending the soil with compost, peatmoss or coir to improve drainage before planting.

Cool Splash Diervilla Shrub for Shady Gardens
Brighten up the shade with a Cool Splash Diervilla. This cultivar of the southern bush honeysuckle was selected for its creamy to yellow leaf margins. The variegated leaves are topped by fragrant yellow flowers in midsummer. They help attract hummingbirds and butterflies to your garden. Cool Splash is hardy in zones 4 to 8 and grows equally well in full sun or partial shade with moist well-drained soil. Once established, it is heat and drought tolerant. This small-scale shrub suckers, forming a dense mass of cascading branches. It eventually reaches 2 to 3 feet tall and wide, making it suitable for small space gardens as well as mixed borders and shrub beds. Use it to mask leggy stems or visually anchor taller trees and shrubs to the ground. And don't let the common name honeysuckle fool you. Though a member of the same family, this is not the invasive honeysuckle taking over our woodlands. A bit more information: Combine Cool Splash with shade tolerant perennials. Hosta, astilbe, Brunnera, coral bells and ginger are just a few. For more shade tolerant shrubs watch my Shrubs Made for the Shade video.

Smart Irrigation Month – Planning a Watersense Irrigation System
Watering our landscapes properly can save water and improve our plants' health. And if you decide to invest in an irrigation system make sure to get the best value and water savings by doing your homework first. Look for systems that include EPA approved WaterSense irrigation controllers. These are like thermostats only they're for your irrigation system, adjusting watering schedules based on weather and soil moisture instead of the calendar. Select a system zoned to water plants at different rates. Established trees require less frequent watering than annuals. Use drip irrigation or low volume sprinklers in gardens to apply water slowly and right where it is needed. And consult a certified Irrigation specialist that understands how irrigation works, the local environment and will help you comply with any building codes. A bit more information: Your time invested in research before investing in an irrigation system can reduce water use, repair costs and plant replacement. Experts estimate we could reduce water use by 50% just by eliminating improper watering. If you already have a system, inspect it regularly. Check for and repair any leaks, clear clogs, adjust direction and repair damaged sprinkler heads.

Grow Star and Heart Shaped Veggies
Add a little star power to your meals with the help of cookie cutters and veggie molds. Cut cucumbers into ¼ inch thick round slices. Use a small heart shaped cookie cutter to remove the center of the rounds. Use these in salads, on sandwiches or relish plates. Save the outer ring. Slide two grape or cherry tomatoes onto a toothpick so they resemble a heart. Place them in the center of the outer ring of the cucumber and secure in place. Or grow heart and star shaped fruit. Cover immature fruit with vegetable molds. Use twisty ties to hold the fruit filled mold onto the vine or support. Check the fruit regularly as some may be ready to harvest in as few as 5 to 7 days. Once the fruit has filled the mold and is fully colored, it is ready to harvest. Creating heart and star shaped vegetables will dress up your meals and may encourage everyone to eat more veggies. A bit more information: For more information on vegetable molds visit http://www.veggiemold.com. And watch for postings on my Facebook page as I grow a few star powered vegetables of my own.

Less Mowing and Hand Trimming, Better for You and Your Landscape
Eliminate hand trimming around garden statues, playsets, narrow spaces and individual trees and shrubs. Invest a bit of time now to eliminate time spent on these tasks in the future. Create mowing strips around raised beds and stonewalls to eliminate hand trimming. You can purchase and lay pavers and other edging materials or just remove a narrow strip of grass and cover with mulch. Run one set of your mower wheels on the mowing strip and cut the grass right up to the structure. Connect individual trees and shrubs with mulch beds. The trees will benefit from the mulch and you will spend less time trimming around each plant. Plus the mulch bed protects the plants from weed whips and mowers that injure the plants as we try to cut the grass as close as possible. And if this is too much mulch, try filling the area with perennials and groundcovers for added beauty and seasonal interest. A bit more information: Mulching around trees also eliminates the frustration of surface roots.

Taming Floppy, Leggy and Less-Than-Attractive Annuals
Break out the pruners and groom your unsightly annuals back to their original beauty. Some annuals tend to develop long leggy stems with few flowers. Regular deadheading and removing the top few inches of the stem encourages more compact growth and continual flowering. Don't worry if your busy schedule allowed your plants to get out of hand. Just cut back the stems halfway. Try staggering severe pruning to keep your garden looking good throughout the renewal process. Do this by pruning back only one third of the plants in a flowerbed or one third of the stems on individual plants at one time. Repeat each week. By the time you prune the last few stems the first group will be producing new flowers on more compact stems. Reduce your workload next season by selecting annuals bred for long bloom and compact growth. You'll have better-looking plants all season long with less work. A bit more information: Regular grooming can help keep foliage plants like coleus looking their best. Remove the coleus flowers as soon as they form to prevent leggy growth. Prune back leggy plants as described to keep these beauties looking their best. For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

Grow a Pickle in a Bottle
Add some mystery and fun to this season's harvest by growing a pickle in a bottle. Just like the ship in a bottle, finding a large cucumber in a clear bottle with a small opening will keep friends and relatives guessing. Start by selecting a small immature cucumber. Leave it attached to the plant and slide it into a bottle. Leave your bottled cucumber tucked under plant leaves or create a little shade with cloth or newspaper to prevent it from overheating and rotting in the sun. Check your cucumber regularly and watch it grow. Cut it off the vine just before it fills the bottle. Your cucumber in the bottle will only last a few days, but will provide lots of fun. Preserve it to extend the fun. Boil 2 cups of vinegar mixed with 2 cups of hot water and 3 tablespoons of pickling salt. Cool and pour the mixture over the cucumber and seal the jar shut. A bit more information: Add some more fun to the garden by scratching your name, design or a message into the rind of winter squash. Take a sharp object and lightly scratch your idea into, but not through the rind of an immature winter squash. As it grows, matures and hardens your message will become clearer.

Upcycle Pool Noodles into the Garden
Don't throw away those worn out or forgotten pool noodles. Put them to work in the garden. Make a lengthwise cut halfway into the noodle. Then use it to top a chicken wire or hardware cloth fence or plant cage. It prevents cuts from sharp wires and adds a bit of color and whimsy to the garden. Or bend and insert the noodle into a lawn bag to hold it open. Adding green debris for recycling will be much easier, especially when it's a one person job. Cover ½ inch PVC to create colorful structures in the garden. Stand on end and securely anchor in the ground for a trellis. Or create colorful arches for added interest or fun for the smaller gardeners in the family. Or cut the noodle to the desired length and cover with ribbon, flowers, pine cones or other materials to create a wreath for your front door, garden entrance or shed. A bit more information: Create a raised bed with the help of old window well sections and noodles. Bolt two window wells together. Top with a noodle to protect you from the sharp edges. Set in place, fill with soil and plant. For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

Plan and Plant Now for a Bountiful Fall Harvest
Now is the time to plan and plant vegetables for a bountiful fall harvest. Start by looking for vacant spaces in the vegetable garden that are left after harvesting lettuce, spinach and other early maturing crops. Expand your search to other plantable areas in flowerbeds and mixed borders. Sow seeds of beans, cucumbers, carrots, beets and other short season vegetables. Simply count the number of days from planting to the date of the average first fall frost in your area. Then check the back of the seed packet for the number of days needed from planting until harvest. As long as you have enough time for the seeds to sprout, grow and produce before frost, they can be added to the garden. Or extend the season with coldframes and floating row covers. Those in frost-free areas can plant longer season crops that benefit from maturing during the cooler months of fall. A bit more information: Wait for the soil to cool before planting lettuce and other vegetable seeds that require cooler temperatures to germinate. Or start the plants indoors and move them into the garden as transplants. Help keep the soil cool by mulching plantings with shredded leaves, evergreen needles or other organic mulch. For more ideas and information on late plantings watch my Melinda's Garden Moment "Still Time to Plant" video or listen to the audio tip on this topic as well as the "Grow a Bountiful Harvest All Season Long" audio tip.

WHAT A WEEKEND!
If I had to pick JUST ONE WORD to describe this past weekend, it'd be: AMAZACRAZYAWESOME! (I totally just made that word up) Spent the weekend with the family at Key Lime Cove and WE HAD A BLAST! Alyssa, Anthony, Ben and Cameron had the time of their lives on the water slides! Sarah and I LITERALLY DID NOTHING on the lazy river, which I think is the idea when you're on that LOL. Embarassing moment alert: I fell asleep on my tube and some random kid cruisin' down the river decided he'd flip me over (that's HARD to do)...that was a fun way to wake up! It really was a GREAT family getaway…FUN & RELAXING! Highly recommend! As always, thank you for reading and thank you for listening to The Mix! -Mark Summers
