Yes, I have a pattern of going a little MIA this time of year on my blog. One of the new projects I have been alluding to is now live! Since it's not specifically about family or parenting I have decided to post it as a separate blog so if you'd like to keep up with it and learn from and with me, make sure you subscribe!
My new project is called Homegrown NH! It is about converting open space to an edible forest garden. It's something I had put on the back burner a couple of years ago in order to write my book and concentrate just on my vegetable garden. I am so excited to be getting back to the project and share it with you.
Here is an excerpt:
Edible Forest Gardening in NH - The Beginning!
The moment I first walked around our new house in New Hampshire at the beginning of April 2009 I knew I was home. I hadn’t seen the property in person and only saw photos before my husband wrote an offer. This would be the fifth house we were buying and I trusted that my husband knew what I liked and what was most important to me. So after selling our house in Charlie Daniels' home town, we packed up and literally drove up to New Hampshire to sign the papers and move in.
The photos I had seen of the place didn’t do it justice. I was more than thrilled with everything inside the house but just as thrilled, if not more so, by what was outside. At the very top of my list of what I wanted… what I needed… was space. I wanted to live in a place where I couldn’t see into my neighbor’s yard and they couldn’t see into ours. I also didn’t want to live in a neighborhood controlled by a homeowner’s association. I was tired of having to ask permission to plant a tree or garden. Being forced to use chemical fertilizers and herbicides regularly wasn’t my idea of freedom.

This blog is a collection of thoughts, articles and perspectives I have at any one time. While I am pretty consistent in my beliefs, life changes and evolves along with experiences. You may feel a connection with me through my writing yet I never want any of my readers to misunderstand that the connection you feel is with a perspective I have shared and not me as a person. I am continually humbled that I am able to connect with my readers, and I hope to continue to be able to for many years to come, but it doesn't make us connected in any way beyond this. If you connect with what I write and know me as an acquaintance, this in no way reflects that I have any knowledge of you, your situation in life or that I am writing with you in mind. It is merely that I have shared a human experience that most likely very many others have had has well. This also goes for anything I post on my Twitter account, Facebook Page and Facebook personal page. I wanted to make this disclaimer as clear as possible so you know that any misunderstanding you choose to have is not my responsibility.
