Borrowers, Gratitude, and Sharing the Load


Mary Niehaus Ralles 

Hello Grit Readers!  After months of silence, I am back with an update on my travels and relocation to reach that rural landscape I’ve been searching for.

I am officially a Hoosier, with a new permanent residence in the great state of Indiana!  When last I wrote, I was in the middle of summer harvest for my urban garden. A harvest I knew I wouldn’t be around for the final harvest of my quaint little garden, lined with granite pavers. 

 My last fence post:

Fast forward to today and we’re in the middle of winter in our new place and I have covered a lot of ground since then. Let me catch you all up…

Thanks, Dave! Can't wait to hear about your garden when it warms up!

Mary, welcome back to GRIT blogging. It sounds like a lot has happened since your last blog post in May. Country life is the best. Even though I am a suburbanite, my heart still belongs to the country. My little piece of heaven is a .62 acre vacant lot that has 12 raised beds in the inner city. This will be season number 7 for Terra Nova Gardens. Many hours are spent there. Not all are spent gardening. Some are as you indicated just watching wildlife and nature at its best. It will be fun to watch you and your family blossom in Indiana. Have a great day in your new residence. Nebraska Dave
