I am grateful to have come from a long line of great gardeners on both sides of my family. Grandmothers, aunts, sister, and cousins have shared cherished family seeds and cuttings, and handed down the secrets of excellent gardening to each new generation.
And, of course, family stories about gardening have always played a major role in creating warm family gatherings and memories.
Before I became a mother, I had been busy with a full time career as a Nurse and Educator.
I did dabble in the dirt, but I would not consider myself much of a success in the garden, let alone an expert in certain areas.
For the past seven years, I have worked outside of the home full time and part time, but all the while, my interest in gardening has sky rocketed.
I read extensively whenever I have the opportunity. I grab every book I can about organic gardening, growing vegetables, and growing herbs.
Perhaps this summer has given me the biggest thrill, because I have experienced an abundant harvest of herbs, vegetables, and even fruit from my own dooryard garden.
What about you, do you share my passion for gardening?
