I am an enthusiast of plants, an eater of vegetables, an admirer of insects, an restorer of prairies, a mother of boys, a twister of words, a lover of life.
I started this blog to share my love, passion, and knowledge for our home vegetable and perennial flower gardens in the hopes that others may be inspired to dig in and create their own garden space wherever they are in this moment.
I relish the challenge of gardening year after year in our cold western Twin Cities climate, and am never short on growing challenges and new ideas. With each passing year, that new idea is field tested and subsequently refined.
To me, the greatest gift is received among our garden beds, for gardening bountifully showers the attentive observer with life lessons - and the lessons are both profound and innumerable.
