I love to garden. I have always had plants growing around me. My grandparents grew extravagant gardens in the desert of South Phoenix. Before I could glean everything I needed to know from them the Lord called them home. I have had the urge to grow plants all my life and only recently found out that its my tradition. I learn about plants from experiences, people, and a multitude of books. I learn a whole lot more through one on one experience with managing gardens and working with people than anything else. I have been blessed to live in the Pacific Northwest for half my life. I have found that under the right conditions anything can be grown here.
