First registered on October 19, 1997, SimpleGiftsFarm.com began as the Internet home of my nursery business.
The nursery was named Simple Gifts Farm after the Shaker hymn Simple Gifts. The nursery itself was shut down in 1998 when I became a full-time writer.
The site became the repository of many of my newspaper columns. It has morphed into different identities over the years depending on how visitors used it.
However, I’ve decided to focus on one garden website. Over the next two months, all content will be moved to the flagship garden website DougGreensGarden.com which will continue to be supported.
SimpleGiftsFarm will be taken off the Net at some future point but I have no plans to sell the domain.
“Tis a gift to be simple,
Tis a gift to be free,
Tis a gift to come down,
Where you ought to be.”
