My journey as a gardener began because I fell in love with the aroma of an Herbes de Provence while on a vacation in France. So, in my early 20’s, I set out to grow my own ingredients to make that lovely mix at home.
Now, 20+ years later, I garden on about 1.5 acres. I grow hundreds of different plants for food, beauty, and ecological diversity. However, because herbs and spices literally and metaphorically opened the garden gate for me, I created this special page to share experiences with these life-changing plants with you.
I hope this information will connect you with all the fragrant, flavorful cultures around the world as you grow your garden and your gardening skills.
