Unboxing My New Book – Organic Gardening for Everyone: Homegrown Vegetable Made Easy! πŸ“•


hi everyone this is a big moment here
for Kim and I’m really really excited this is the moment she’s been waiting
for for months now and this is her book her copy her first
true hard copy of the book and we have not had the time to open it yet because
we’ve been on the road and Kim has just been chomping to get this thing open so
yeah for two days I want to say to you that I’m really proud of you this is a
really big moment and we’re excited to share it with you guys
thanks hon yes I don’t want to belabor this I’m already getting choked up here
yeah this represents a lot of hard work yes you have done over a year so by the
way while she’s opening this up we’re in Auburn for the Mandarin festival right
now it’s 48 degrees out here all right here we go
very cool it’s not even 7 o’clock yet oh okay here we go oh my gosh what a feeling to hold this in my hands
you guys it represents so much hard work just my soul my passion those look at
that oh my gosh and I dedicated it to Jerry camera guy
and let me just read the dedication no no cuz it’s so special to me
I never could have done it without him this is dedicated to my CameraGuy – your
never-ending support and belief in me made this book possible because of your
creativity behind the camera we made that first garden video that changed our
lives together we are an incredible team thanks honey I never could have done it
without you we’ve had the courage to do it if you would just said go for it I
love you I’m speechless right now and I also dedicate it to my parents my
mom and dad my first garden teachers your love for me and for each other has
shaped my life beyond words and we just got to celebrate their 60th wedding
anniversary and they’re just amazing and they’ve given me the inspiration and the
motivation and filled me with loves that I can in turn fill other people with
love so I want to thank them too well congratulations thank you yes
finally you’ve been so patient it lets flip through a couple of pages here and
we’ll get some close-up shots so here we go I’m gonna flip through my book for
the very first time organic gardening for everyone homegrown vegetables made
easy oh my goodness I love how colorful it is really step by step on how to grow
your own vegetables Wow to finally have this in hardcopies incredible looked at
it for so long on the computer Jerry you and Jules did such a beautiful job with
the photography Jules really was so good and helpful it’s just incredible I shown
the back look at this yeah the back cover is so
pretty it gives a really nice summary of what’s in the book what P Allen Smith is
on here Diane from the National Garden Bureau Gary a lot of you guys watch Gary
at the Rusted of the Garden they gave a little quote as to what the book is all
about how much they like it it’s so pretty I have to show my
favorite picture in the whole book though everybody and it just looks
amazing to see it in print the very last chapter this is one of my very favorite
pictures the sunflower one of my very favorite parts of the book I remember
that it’s just how the rewards are of growing your own food are so much more
than eating and harvesting your vegetables just being a part of a
community seem to change lives and just feeling the joy of being in the garden
getting your hands in the soil and planting a seed I know it seems really silly that we’re
crying because it’s not like you know look at us we got a book I can’t explain
it but no I can’t explain it but please we’re not tooting our own horn here it’s
it’s just exciting to see this thing finally come together and just all the
stories behind it photos and all of you guys of your support helped us do this
too well the part that we love sorry for interrupting is that you guys write back
and comment or say on the live streams that you know that your your gardens
have improved or you’re learning from you know the videos and that’s where we
get the reward to just do things like this that’s right and I think it just
represents like our heart and our soul and our passion kind of all in one spot
and I think that’s what brings up the emotion is it means so much to us and
then to get to share it with you there’s this thing is filled with tips and
tricks on how to how to help you grow your own vegetables and I’m so excited
to be able to share with you guys and it comes out December 24th okay and you can
pre-order it now over on our website so hope
you guys enjoy it it’s from us to you all right thank you

  78. Wran Ther says:

    Huge congratulations to you both Kim and Jerry for finally realizing the wonders of now holding your passions in your hands! You both combine and pour such a love of and for each other quite literally into the soils beneath your feet. A totally tremendous accomplishment of best practices applied in your own garden spaces that are easily transferred to other individuals. Was so warming after walking in from a day out in the cold, snow, and wind to be a small part of your celebration. Maybe if time permits in the not too distant future, just a cup of home brewed coffee, your book, the both of you, for a camera free opportunity to create your own Zen moment at home in your gardens together. Congratulations again Kim and Jerry! -Bob…
