Natalie and Roger are happily living an almost-married life outside scenic, historic Sykesville, Maryland. We’re starting a big new garden here that God willing, will produce a great deal of food for us and our family and friends. Along with a deer or two from nearby Patapsco State Park (which kindly allows bow hunting), we’re eating very close to home!
Also sharing this ersatz country life with us — some more willing than others — are Natalie’s son CJ and my son Luke, our old dogs Trixie and Charlie, Shadow the good cat and Whisper the devil cat, and sometimes when they’re inclined, my daughter Nicole, Luke’s girlfriend Emily, and Natalie’s son Ian. We’re hoping we’ll also see a lot of our grandchild, expected in September.
This blog is a garden journal, with lots of how-to info for anyone interested, as well as a running compendium of our thoughts, observations, and ideas. We hope you enjoy it. Come back often!
