“There are many things in life that will catch your eye, but only a few will catch your heart…pursue those.”

This time of year I’m reminded of why I love gardening so much. It clears the mind, it fills the heart, it restores the spirit. This past winter I spent a lot of time reading novels instead of gardening books, while I enjoyed them, they don’t feed my heart like dreaming about gardens does.

What catches your heart?

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.
