Welcome to, the online home to Greg Freeman's Garden Chronicle

More than merely offering a chronicle of my gardening experiences, this site celebrates lush beds of fragrant flowers, heirloom vegetable preservation, farm to table dining, the slow food movement, lazy summer afternoons resting beneath shade trees, and choruses of birds singing, bees buzzing and breezes wafting.  In addition to the plants growing in my own garden, I will periodically explore garden-related subjects from around the world, ranging from rare trees and innovative hybridists to
en plein air paintings and artful filmography depicting lovely flowers and stunning landscapes. 

So journey with me!  Spade and trowel are optional, of course, but I hope something discovered here will compel you to see gardening through a new lens, one that opens up a world of infinite possibilities and years of gardening pleasure.
