Now that I have published The Gardener’s Chairside Reader, I have been pondering my next book.Oh sure, I have a few projects on the back burner, but this time I want to ask my readers what they would most like to read next?
I have an idea to perhaps write about what it really takes to move from the city to the country. These days it seems that a lot of folks are tired of suburban life. They long to buy a few acres someplace in the country and live a simpler and more fulfilling life. Country life can be idyllic, but it is definitely a learning curve for city folks who aren’t prepared for the changes that are ahead for their family.
Time and again, I have witnessed people who move from the city to a rural location. Most have the vision in their minds, but the realities often set in and they eventually move on someplace else.
Another interesting phenomenon that is occurring are the many young folks who are buying older rural properties and are “homesteading” and trying their hardest to live off of their land by raising vegetables, livestock, and chickens. These young people could use some advice from those who “have been there and done that.” Thankfully most of these young couples are doing just fine on their own, but a little guidance would make their journey much easier.
People are generally tired of the rat race and eventually they will find a way to make their dreams of living in the country a reality. I hope they all find their perfect place to raise their family.
