This is Jim’s Garden.
In 2014 I started a blog to capture the ever-changing year on our 2.7-acre property in central Indiana, USA. I stuck with it for a few years but trailed off in 2017, mostly due to the demands of a much busier professional life. Plus, it seemed like the scene became repetitive. Change as it may through the year, the garden each year rather repeats the previous year.
Meanwhile, in 2018 we became much more engaged with the family farm.
As of 2022, I will continue to share pictures of my garden at home, but I am going to focus on sharing pictures￼ of the farm. 280 acres – 10 times bigger than the previous subject of Jim’s garden￼￼ – still in central Indiana but massively more varied than the homestead. ￼￼￼This place has 200 acres of woods, a creek, various meadows, grasslands￼, and the 10,000 young trees which we planted 10 years ago￼. And milkweed! Lots and lots of milkweed. My current passion is propagating milkweed. We have, to say the least, a butterfly friendly property￼￼.
Plus I’ve discovered the glorious opportunity to plant annual wildflowers by the thousands in areas with plenty of sun.
Thats the new gig.
Oh, yeah, perhaps you will notice that I am fond of limericks and other simple verses￼.
Thanks for reading.
