About Me

I am from a small town in southeast Tennessee and still a country girl at heart.  I have been blessed with a wonderful husband of 40+ years, two children and 4 granddaughters.  I am a retired medical transcriptionist, and love gardening, jewelry design, crafts and cooking.  I live on 10 acres in rural East Tennessee  and have gardened in the traditional row method during that time, with a good bit of wide-row planting. I converted to Square Foot Gardening in 2010 and I will never go back to "regular" gardening again. 

I grew up spending summers on my grandparents’ farm where they raised tobacco, had a small dairy and raised a huge garden to feed the family during the summer, canning & preserving for the winter months.   It was hard work & I hated it then, but I am so thankful for my heritage as it instilled in me a strong work ethic and love of gardening.
