Quote if the Day: Barbara Damrosch

October 19th, 2009

“Gardening has a magical quality when you are a child.”
Barbara Damrosch

We spent the afternoon with my family yesterday and our nieces and nephew were super excited to help clean out their garden plot for winter. I remember liking gardening until I got to be a certain age, then I didn’t much care for it for many many years. I came into it again several years ago and each year it becomes a bigger part of my life.

Were you a gardener as a kid, or did you come into as an adult?

Reading & Watching

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!


This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
