I Should Really Post More…


Hi Everybody! It’s me, the delinquent. .

When I started this blog, my life was much less complicated.  It was just me, a job, and an idea.

Life is now a bit… more.  It’s me, a husband, a child, an entrepreneurial adventure, a field of vegetables, a house, 3 cats, and a lot of fullness of life.

I still love to blog and answer questions, but for now I am behind on other things that must be caught up on first.  Like 250+ new varieties to enter for my seed company, or reading “Big A, little a, what begins with a…” again, a thousand other things.  It’s not that this isn’t important, but it doesn’t smell odd or have the ability to burst into flames or the like.  That’s good, but it also means that for now it lies a bit dormant.

I’m on a “life events induced” vacation for the next few weeks.  Unlike most time when my to-do list has 500+ tasks on it, my current one has 14.  Number 9 on the list is revamping this blog.  I  the next few weeks, keep an eye out for changes — ones that will fit with my current business prospects and allowed time, plus be of interest to you.

God Bless!
