One of the nice things about blogging is the ability to cover as many topics as you like. Besides growing food and improving the local environment, gardening can also be a way to earn extra money.
In January, 2010, my latest book, Pay Dirt was released. In it, I offer sound advice for starting your own "microfarm" in the backyard. You can apply many of my suggestions to any home-based business. I've included loads of tips for gardeners, whether you are gardening for profit or just for fun.

Last year, I started a blog at http://backyard-paydirt.blogspot.com/. That project included a learning curve for me, and I did not add many posts. If you have found me as a result of visiting that blog, thanks for your continued support. This blog will be updated much more frequently, and will include a broader spectrum of information, from gardening and food to ecology and permaculture.
