I love every last bit of the process. From making my own compost and worm castings (well the worms help a little bit with that) to starting everything from seed, to picking and preserving. It doesn't leave a whole lot of free time for writing, but I do come up with my best ideas while in the garden.
Its usually just me, the bugs and an occasional cat, so I write a lot in my head and then hope I remember it when I have time to go back to the computer.
I get as much blogging, writing and tweeting done as I can, but its a tight schedule. I am busy almost around the clock, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Besides the cleared growing part of our property we have another 40 acres of woods, streams and even a small lake. I am such a lucky woman.
Having good food, incredible surroundings and a wonderful community for our kids to grow up in is our own piece of heaven. Writing and publishing my novels is a big old cherry on the sundae. My life isn't perfect, but wanting anything else would seem greedy.
