I just finished reading Barnheart, by Jenna Woginrich, and enjoyed it very much. I don’t actually have “barnheart,” that incurable longing to own my own farm, but I have “gardenheart,” which is an equally incurable longing for a garden of my own! After living in a condo for many years, I’m ready to have my own yard, flower beds, and vegetable garden again.
If you find yourself overcome with the longings of barnheart, simply step outside, get some fresh air, and breathe. Go back to your desk and finish your office work, knowing that tonight you’ll be taking notes on spring garden plans and perusing seed catalogs.
