About me

Location Southern Ontario, Canada
Introduction I started my vegetable garden in 2011 with 4 small raised beds & a lot of enthusiasm.

Little by little, the garden was expanded and now contains 18 beds for annual vegetables, 3 asparagus beds and numerous fruit trees and berry bushes…and now I'm delving into ornamentals.

My philosophy? Gardening is more about the journey than the destination.
Interests Gardening (obviously!) and knitting are my two biggest passions - not a day goes by that I don't pick up my needles :). I also enjoy crafts (you name it, I'll try it!), hiking and baking (especially bread). I have enjoyed cooking in the past as well, but once the kids came, it became all about quick meals that everyone would eat. I'm hoping that I get my cooking mojo back at some point!
Favorite Movies Don't really have any favourites, but I do enjoy a good thriller/mystery.
Favorite Music I've gone through lots of music phases throughout my life - I generally lean towards classic & alternative rock. And ANYTHING by Nat King Cole.
Favorite Books Again, I don't have any favourites when it comes to fiction (am I sensing a theme here?), but I do enjoy historical novels, especially pre-20th century. I'm a cookbook collector & adore anything by Ina Garten, Jamie Oliver & Peter Reinhart...but I really could go on and on here....
