These last few weeks, the blogosphere and certain media outlets have been full of unfounded and false reports that have led to a smear campaign against members of our family. Unfortunately, there is much published misinformation, but one valid point was brought to my attention.
Back in 2008, I did some research about "Victory Gardens" for a post used on this( Little Homestead in the City) site and our sister site FreedomGardens.org. I used three sources, citing two but omitting to credit one of the paragraphs (the content was that of a time-line and it was never my intention to claim these words as my own). See http://freedomgardens.org/about-2/history-of-garden-movements/ Yet a mistake was made and for that I am sorry and do apologize.
Right after the error was pointed out last week, I edited the post by adding the proper quotation formatting and source citation. I appreciated the chance to correct my mistake and rectify the inadvertent oversight.
Although the oversight was not brought to my attention in a private and direct manner, correction is correction and there is always room for improvement. So I hope to strive to be more careful, making sure I check for omissions, etc., in the future.
Thank you for allowing me the chance to correct my mistake.
