I garden in the beautiful (and yes, very wet) Pacific Northwest in a gorgeous area known as “the Gorge”.
I owe my love of gardening and herbs mostly to an aunt whose house I would visit during the summer. She was a gardener and one section of her garden was devoted to herbs. Her herb garden was my favorite place to visit and explore. Together we gathered seeds that she let me take home with instructions for how I could plant them myself. She also taught me to rub the leaves of the plants to release their scent. To this day whenever I smell dill I am brought back to the summers in her garden. Ever since those summer days spent at my aunt’s I have been inspired by all the many uses and types of herbs out there. Every year I attempt to grow more and more in my garden.
Lately, my husband and I have been very interested in the idea of growing and preserving as much as we can for our family to eat throughout the year. My garden has taken on a whole new light because of this. It is no longer just a passion but now a means of caring for my family. Throughout this site I hope to be able to share what I know about gardening and herbs as well as what I learn as my garden continues to grow with my family.
Thanks for visiting with me!
