This is the reincarnation of the blog La Vida Locavore, a food and politics blog originally started in 2008. Instead of simply focusing on food and politics, this blog will be devoted to all of my personal interests - which also include hiking, backpacking, gardening, wildflowers, and photography (and combinations thereof, like wildflower photography).

The name Jill Over the Ground is a play on the edible weed gill-over-the-ground, which is pronounced the same way. I figure the name fits since this blog will cover my wanderings over the ground while hiking, my exploration of foraging native and wild edibles like gill-over-the-ground, and my gardening efforts on the ground outside my home.

Initially, however, I am going to work on migrating content from the old La Vida Locavore blog to this site, since the old site host is shutting down and I will otherwise lose it. So stay tuned... new content is on its way after the old stuff gets moved.
