March 21, 2012 - An Email From Jeff

Today I received an email from our dear friend Jeff (EG from Our Engineered Garden). I had received a comment on my post from yesterday, and I immediately knew "Anonymous" was Jeff. He's the only one I endearingly call "poopyhead", who insists on sowing his carrot seeds one by one rather than gluing them to paper as I do :-) I asked him to please email me, and he did.

As most of you know, Jeff has suffered some terrible losses in his life in the past year. It's a long healing process for him, but he is making progress. He's started sowing seeds and growing a garden again, which is a real step in the right direction for him. He still has his dog, Jude, who is his main source of comfort. Eventually he'll heal enough to begin blogging again, but it will take some time.

You are welcome to leave him a comment in this post if you wish.

We love you Jeff....hurry back to us.

  4. Jeff, I discovered your blog through this one and I have found so much valuable information in previous postings. I was so sorry about all you've been through, but know that there are many of us out here who are sending good thoughts and positive energy your direction. Plant those carrots and whatever else and let the garden be your therapy. We'll all be there when you are ready to blog again!

  13. Jeff - gardening can be great for healing and destressing so I hope you'll be enjoying spring season, sunshine and slowly returning back.

  14. Gran, thank you for checking on him - I know I have visited his last posts a few times to see if he had checked in there so I'm so happy to hear he is healing.

    Jeff, I think of you often and pray that you are finding comfort somehow. I can only imagine how much the past year has left you shaken and unsettled. Please take the time you need for yourself and know that we are here for you as much as we can be in the blog-land, and are eager to hear about whatever is currently interesting you and your hobbies. I'm so glad to hear you have planted a garden this year, even if small it is so therapeutic - hugs to you & Jude :)

  18. Thanks for sharing this Granny!

    Still missing Jeff's blog, southern accent, and Jude! I planted the last of my Cherokee Purple seeds from him this year, and I'm hoping to have enough of the tomatoes this year that I can "part" with one to save seeds from it, and keep them going!
