|Front porch in Autumn|
Before I became a mother, I had been busy with a full time career as a Nurse and Educator. I did dabble in the dirt, but I would not consider myself much of a success in the garden, let alone an expert in certain areas. For the past seven years, I have only worked outside of the home part time, and my interest in gardening, especially organic gardening and herb gardening, has sky rocketed. I read extensively whenever I have the opportunity (sadly, my best reading is done in the bathroom).
Perhaps this summer has given me the biggest thrill, because I have experienced an abundant harvest of herbs, vegetables, and even fruit from my own dooryard garden!
