So, here we go. I am a 37 year old minister and computer programmer. As a child, my family maintained a large garden, but I’ve never, as an adult, had any garden at all. This will document my journey back to the farm. I’m sure I’ll make some mistakes and learn a lot as I go. I live on 1.4 acres in a smallish town just outside Nashville TN, USA. I have so much to learn, but first to decide my goal. My goal for my efforts is to become more independent of big business and to be more sustainable and able to take care of myself and my family with God’s help and guidance.
