-Oliver Sacks has a nice Talk of the Town piece (entitled "Frond Feelings," natch) in this week's New Yorker about hunting for horsetail ferns on the High Line. It's only available to subscribers (or in the print edition), so grab yourself a copy and meanwhile, take a look at our photos of the High Line, part II, or read this 2007 Talk of the Town article that's also by Oliver Sacks and also about ferns. The man likes his ferns. [New Yorker]

-New gardening magazine! According to its website, Greenwoman Magazine is "devoted to gardening thought in all its forms--fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, commentary, biography, art and comics." The first issue has a "poem likening hot romance to the Scoville Heat Scale of chili pepper." Noted, without comment. Available in paper and in digital form. [Greenwoman Magazine]
