I've made many garden blogging friends along the way- and still read their blogs regularly- so some things won't change, but it was time to move on.
In late 2009 we moved to a cold, dry climate- zone 5. So different than what I've been growing in (zone 8, moist). I grow year round, in an unheated high tunnel and greenhouse- they're small, but I produce a lot with them. I'm working towards getting a 20x40 high tunnel on the just under a 1/4 acre area next door- some of it is ours, but some is not- the owner (who we are purchasing our home from) has given me permission to do what I please. I'm working to grow enough for my community- including the food banks, homeless, etc. In time.
So here you go- out with the old and in with the new.
Dirt Candy will serve a different purpose than this blog did. Not just for family and friends far away, this blog will go along with any coaching I'm doing- any classes I teach will be covered. Basically, it's an extension or another way to help the community do what I do every year- which is grow our own food, in as simple and as low tech way as possible. I get so many questions every year that I thought that I'd cover those too- so anyone can have access to the information. It's time to take back our food- and it starts in our own backs yards, I want to help others do that too.
My current yard is a challenge- all the work will be included, so others can be inspired to not give up in this climate. It can be done here.
So head on over and drop me a note! And thanks so much for reading my blog.
