Gardening is a talent and a gift that I’ve developed the hard way… through trial and error. I was introduced to the world of gardening by my mother when I was about ten years old. Thanks Mom!

After switching to organic growing practices in the early 80’s, I abandoned the use of chemicals and began applying natural gardening techniques to my gardens.

In 1985, a few years after graduating from college, I resigned from a great job with the Federal Reserve Board in Washington D.C. and moved to Pennsylvania to accept an internship on a forty acre organic farm.

At the time, many of my friends and family thought it was a crazy idea, but it turned out to be the best decision I ever made. During a few short years on the farm I learned an incredible amount about gardening, nature, and self sufficiency.

It’s been over fifteen years since I left the farm, but I’ve continued to raise organic vegetable gardens and explore nature. I’ve recognized that you can never truly master a garden and that each season will bring its share of new experiences and surprising discoveries.

One thing that has never changed is the connection and awareness of God’s presence and grandeur when I observe the forces at work in even the simplest vegetable plot. And a well tended garden never ceases to be inspiring.

I garden for the enjoyment and satisfaction that it provides. I write about gardening to share that joy and to hopefully spare you from some of the trials and mistakes. My biggest desire is that you’ll discern and feel that same Inspiration as you look out over your own gardens.
