How it all began
When I was young I adored spending time in the garden. Helping my father to sow carrots and beans or following behind my grandmother, watching her pick ripe tomatoes & crush bugs between finger and thumb (my grandmother had no time for bugs in her greenhouse!)
As I grew up, gardening became crucial to my well-being and happiness. A sanctuary during difficult times, somewhere to relax and invite friends, a place to grow things with my own children when they were small, creating a vegetable patch and flower gardens when time allowed and always, always just loving time spent outdoors, creating, nurturing, tasting.
