“I never planned on making a living on the computer, it is just the direction I went. The more time I spent on the computer, the more time I began to spend in the garden. I found the time I worked on growing food, helped balance all the time I was spending in front of computer screen. These two worked hand in hand in my life. Eventually I started to see how the two followed a similar set of guidelines to grow.” ~Ricky Coburn
