My husband and I, our children grown, live now in a house in the midst of a meadow—five acres of rolling fields, quiet woods, and flowing brook. Our coming here may have had an effect on this land, but even more have these acres had their influence on us—our way of life, our way of gardening, even our way of thinking.
The weeds that in other places and other times were our enemies are here and now our friends. We have grown more and more aware of much that we formerly missed—the quiet beauty of a twisted old laurel root kicking its way up out of the earth, the detail in the center of a wild geranium blossom. These things, and a hundred more, are introducing us to a new kind of beauty, to a whole new kind of gardening—gardening the easier way—the carefree way.
This is a tale of a relationship, an awareness, a warmth that developed between my husband and myself and our land; between us and the plants, trees, grasses, and all that grows here, always including the deer, the blue birds, and the large black crows.
But this tale of discovery has many practical aspects, too. Whether you measure your land by the acre or by the foot, whether your garden is large, medium or small, whether you have just a small group of trees or a real woods area, you’ve some happy and surprising experiences in store if you, too, let Nature show you a more carefree way to grow things. I’m certain that much of what we have learned will be helpful to you in countless ways, for every bit of advice in this book is based on our own knowledge and experiences.
