Since 1990, Scott Chaskey has worked as a land steward and farmer for the Peconic Land Trust at Quail Hill Farm in Amagansett, New York, an organic community farm. Over the years, he has recorded his meditations on weather, wildlife, soil, seed, root, plant, and flower, and in This Common Ground he has organized some of these reflections season by season, through the course of one year on the farm. Chaskey's observations reflect a doer's respect for the rhetoric of the fields and a firsthand knowledge of the interdependence of soils, plants, animals, and humans. His contagious sense of wonder and artistic sensibility illustrate why planting and reaping are such an important part of what defines the human community and the human condition.
Like Joan Gussow's This Organic Life or Verlyn Klinkenborg's The Riral Life, this inspirational evocation of a life spent working the earth is certain to become a classic of nature writing, as well as appealing to today's burgeoning organic lifestyle experience.

Contrary to what you might think, a sharp knife is actually safer than a dull knife. The important thing to remember when chopping and cutting is to let the knife do the work for you. A sharp knife allows you to do that, but a dull knife requires you to exert more pressure to get the job done, which means your hand has a greater chance of slipping.
