The Garden is put to bed for the forever winter

As gardeners, we intuitively know there is a time for renewal.  There is definite life cycle, sprout, seedling, production, decline, then finally off to the compost heap. 

Almost two years ago, I started with two blogs,  A Midwest Garden, and I Hope You Are Hungry. I have enjoyed every minute of every post, but at times found myself off track and off topic.

Later, I started a Facebook page under The Gastronomic Gardener name and the growth there has been gratifying albeit sporadic.
As my interests and focus has changed, I feel I have outgrown these platforms, so I am putting A Midwest Garden  and  I Hope You Are Hungry  to bed.
Blogger has served me well, I’ve entered the world of blogging and made some new friends; but the season is now at an end.  It is time for me to bid farewell to Blogger. I look back and can see how far I've come in terms of quality content and photographs. It is a fine platform as thousands of fellow bloggers can attest.  It is just time for me to move on.

But this is not goodbye – but rather, as I said above, a renewal!
I am happy to announce I am re-launching! 

As new plants in spring are nourished by last years composted growth, it will have content from both A Midwest Garden, and  I Hope You Are Hungry. Several series are in the works designed to help and encourage folks learn to garden as well as try out different techniques.  There are plans for tools to help in garden planning, planting schedules, and more!
I look forward to sharing what I have learned, to continue learning from my readers and begin fresh with new focus and fervor!
Please join me over at!  Take a look around and let me know what you think!

I’ll see you there.
