It is a surreal thing to see one’s name listed next to a book for sale.
Humbling as well, because this book only happened because so many people inspired it and helped it come to fruition. Our Garden at its heart has always been a love story celebrating fatherhood, childhood, and family as much as a fun story about gardening.
As one who works with words, it isn’t often that I am without much to say. But today, gratitude fills my heart, and all that I can manage is a profound thank you from this writer to all of you, and to those aforementioned souls who helped give life to this tale.
So with that, I leave you with the book’s dedication:
For my family—Dad and Mom, for tomatoes and bees and everything in between. Anna, for all that you do and all that you are. And Claire and William, my favorite garden helpers. — AD
For Ann, Miranda, and Alanna. And for our animal friends. — SG
I hope you and the kids in your life enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it. Happy gardening!
