Hello from Tasmania
It is good to be here among the Green Wizard folks. I live in a small cottage in a wild garden in a small city on an island at the bottom of the world, and feel myself to be rather fortunate to be able to garden and write and potter about creating a small but satisfactory life in green wizard mode. I spend almost zero dollars on stuff, buy almost nothing new and grow and forage a lot of my food. I live with my teenage daughter who also likes to experiment with growing herbs and making teas from the garden. Sometimes I visit my partner who lives in a shed on the side of a nearby mountain. He is a hermit and off-grid electronics aficionado, and together we cut wood in his forest to heat our houses and build things out of bits and pieces when we find that there is something we do need.
Until recently I ran a small gardening business, but have had to cut that right back due to problems with my hands. I am now cobbling together a very small income from work in one garden, one writing gig and occasional jobs on the side. Life is ever interesting and surprising though, and in my experience new opportunities generally present themselves. Eventually.
I do some sporadic blogging about my very quiet green wizard adventures at All the Blue Day: alltheblueday.blogspot.com
