I write. I cook. I garden.

I've been interested in gardening and herbalism since I was a child. As an adult, life seemed to keep getting in the way of me being able to have a garden. I grew a few culinary herbs here and there, but virtually gave up on vegetable, since my backyard is in almost complete shade.

This year, I decided that enough was enough. I wanted a garden, and I was determined to have one. I tore out the front lawn, built raised beds and vertical pallet beds and converted my front yard into a garden. Now I have room to grow... which is the real start of the adventure.

I'm growing a bunch of common vegetables: tomatoes, peppers, corn, beans, squash, radishes, some herbs, and a few other sundry veggies. I'm hoping to be able to fill up the space I have left with a few unusual edibles, as well as more culinary and medicinal herbs. I am absolutely thrilled and excited to be gardening again.
