I’ve wanted to write a garden journal for a couple of years now. I wish I had started writing about my garden at its beginning, but now is better than never!

I have been fascinated with food, gardening and ecology for a long time. More recently I have become seriously interested in voluntary simplicity and organic living. This past year it became important enough to me that I started making some major changes in my life. I see things more clearly now. Sometimes it is frightening and overwhelming, so it will be helpful to get things down in words…to tame the beast of fear by reminding myself that the little things I do make a difference.
