As we kick off the week I have to admit to some deep sadness that the whole warm weather thing didn’t last. As much as I love the pristine white snow that comes up to the edge of window sills and seeing little bunny tracks in the snow I was just beginning to taste the freshness of spring. I know Spring is muddy and can be slightly rainy but let’s all be honest and say we are sick of wearing fur-lined boots and still having frozen toes. 

That all to say this summer I am very excited about beginning the garden and I really hope to document some of our successes and failures as gardeners this year I feel that we will probably have more failures than success haha just knowing myself but I cannot stop being excited about fresh heirloom tomatoes covered in fresh herbs and olive oil and balsamic vinegar with maybe some fresh mozzarella. I live for it! So I thought I would share just a few images from my pinterest account that I have collected focused on Gardening to get your all inspired in that direction and to inspire you that Spring and Summer are on there way even if you were like me this morning and woke up to 4 inches of blowing snow. This will for sure put a smile on your face. 

Happy Monday!


Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
