Welcome to The Organic Heir! My name is Ruth and I am the founder and creator of this website! Are you interested in organic gardening? Creating a more simple and meaningful life? Sustainability? Healthy recipes? Intentional living? Well, you’ve come to the right place!
How The Organic Heir was born…
I have always been interested in all things natural and as a kid I loved Captain Planet and I even had my own Earth Club (which none of my friends attended by the way). Fast forward to today, in September 2014, my husband and I bought a wonderful ranch home in North Texas. We have just over 2 acres of land and we were ready to graduate from container gardening to the real deal.
I started this website as way to document our journey into organic gardening. I was searching for a neat and tidy way to organize the who, what, where, when, and how much of what happens of the gardening process. It’s a never ending labor of love after all!
A blog is the perfect place to store and organize all of this information! I can place posts into neat categories with dates and photographs! And, I can always look back and track my progress and see what worked and what didn’t! How awesome!
Why organic gardening?
I have a fascination with old things…from vintage, to the ways of the past. I believe that the modern life is toxic, both physically and spiritually. Therefore, I strive everyday to clear my head and clean my life of the toxicity surrounding me.
I believe by simplifying our lives we can create healthier bodies and more meaningful relationships.
But, how does this apply to organic gardening? Well, organic gardening is simple and uncomplicated. I plant a seed and tend to it. If it grows, wonderful. If it doesn’t grow, or gets taken by pests. That’s that!
To put it bluntly, if I wanted to participate in the non-sustainable, destructive contemporary growing methods…and if I were interested in consuming food bathed in pesticides, that has been overly processed or genetically modified…I’d shop at the grocery, not grow it in my own garden!
On said topic, when shopping at the grocery, I purchase mostly organic, non-gmo products. I like to buy local when I can. The meat I purchase is raised locally at an organic, grass fed ranch. Over the next few years, I plan to add more garden plots and fruit + nut trees. I want to grow as much as I can.
