About me

Recently moved from Florida to Oregon to satisfy my zonal envy for a different plant pallet. Discovered GOY whilst searching for a stainless steel border fork and enjoy similar growing conditions. I plant eco-friendly, drought tolerant / drown proof, cottage style gardens in a small yard. My neighbor and I grow heirloom veggies, interplanted with flowers. Previously I gardened at 9800 ft in the Rockies and in the high desert of Colorado and New Mexico. So I am always experimenting to see what thrives.

I love working with medicinal herbs and garden devas. That interest was first nurtured by months spent walking with friends around Canterbury. I like to put a leaf or two of mugwort or Keys of Heaven in a cuppa afternoon tea to enhance the light.
