A few weeks ago, I received a new seed catalog from one of my favorite gardening companies. I was standing in the kitchen sorting through the mail when I first laid eyes on it. The moment I picked it up, a rush of excitement filled the air. My mind suddenly transformed into an unending Pinterest board full of ideas for the coming season. There are new plants and vegetable, new canning recipes to tackle, and new gardening techniques to try. Truly a plethora of possibility.

Sometimes things don’t go as planned. This reality shouldn’t be a shocker, but when it happens I often find myself taken off guard. “How did this happen? This isn’t the way this was supposed to go!” I know I’m not the only one to face disappointment. It’s a reality we often face especially when we’ve taken time to dream and risk. It’s no different in the garden.

My name is Aimee and I'm a recovering "city-girl." When our kids were young, my husband and I moved our family to a small rural area where the 4H club is cool. With a slower pace of life and new passions for "farm to table living," I started my gardening and canning adventures. Each new experience brought stories, laughter and new insight into how the garden was meant to thrive. The true surprises came in the quiet moments alone in the garden with God. He began speaking to my heart as my hands worked the soil, tended to the plants, and enjoyed watching them grow. After sharing a few "insights" with those closest to me, it was clear that these conversations in the garden were meant for something more. This blog was birthed out of the encouragement of countless family and friends who felt like these “Lessons in the Soil” needed to be shared.
