About Me

I’m a Christ follower, husband, and father of a whole bunch of boys (we don’t make the other kind).  I love writing and gardening.  The garden seems to grow a little every season as I seek to grow more and more of our own food.  I’m an organic gardener and I struggle every summer to keep ANYTHING growing because… well, we live on the surface of the sun here in Arizona where temps have been known to hit 120F.  Ouch!

Thanks for checking out the blog, I would love to hear from you!

  1. Eeeek! 120F??? Us Brits are currently melting in 70F ha ha! Great blog, thanks for your visit.

  2. Yah, the good news is, if you can survive it, it’s a great time to play golf. Lots of cool grass, good prices, and very few crazy people on the links.

    Thanks, Mr. Jones, for your comment on my blog at Creative Country Views. I’ve enjoyed browsing your blog site and would like to stay in touch. Since I’m in Tennessee and developing an online resource for agrarian living (see our full website at http://creativecountryliving.com/), I’m especially interested in your very different environment in Arizona (I love Arizona, by the way) and how you manage farming, gardening, et al, “on the surface of the sun,” as you say.

    Woo hoo! Another guerrilla gardener like myself 😀
    Completely different zone though in northern Canada – zone three actually. I caught your blog about the corn – I’d be happy to offer some suggestions – there are tricks of the trade when it comes to gardening that work in any zone – however don’t want to be sticking my nose where it isn’t welcome – so please let me know if you’d like some ideas and I’ll be happy to share.

    Thanks for “Liking” my blog and giving me the chance to stumble over yours. So interesting, the difference between Michigan and Arizona! We’ve been whining about high 80’s and humidity this week, and I’m still waiting for my first tomato, zucchini, and cucumber. I’ll be watching your progress.

    • Thanks for stumbling over! It’s funny you mention the differences between the two. When I was five years old we actually moved from Redford Township (outside Detroit) to Phoenix, AZ… in JUNE! Hahahaha! We had no idea what we were getting into. The day we moved in it was 114. There were five of us, in one Ryder truck, with a dog and no AC (after all we rented it in Detroit). It was like the Beverly Hillbillies… without the boatloads of money. Good memories…

  10. AWESOME BLOG! I will follow and come back to catch up!

  11. Reading your blog was the perfect inspiration before delving into making tonight’s dinner of pasta, pasta sauce and beer bread from scratch. Looking forward to sharing our first year of gardening ups & downs with you along with whatever else comes our way. You did mention 2014 could be an entire year of crazy… That would be us. We put the fun in dysFUNction. Thanks for a great blog and for the follow.

    Glad to hear you’re alive and well and still gardening. I understand about high priorities. Life can throw us some real unexpected curves at times. I hope some time you will get back to blogging about your gardening experiences.

    Have the best day that you can.
