Quote of the Day: Jim Goodwin

June 8th, 2014

The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it. 

~Attributed to both Jim Goodwin and Sydney J. Harris
Even when there are a thousand things to do in the garden, I try take a minute to pull out my lawn chair and sit in the garden each day. Sometimes I need to remind myself that it’s not a race, it’s a journey and I need to make sure I enjoy it!

Do have a spot where you can sit and enjoy your garden?

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.
