I am an event producer in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul in Minnesota. I am married to a wonderful man (and garden guru himself), and we have a combined family of four children.
My garden is an extension of my house, but more importantly, an extension of my heart. To tell the story of my garden is like telling the story of my life.
I live a hectic and complicated life. My garden is my sanctuary and just being in it is therapy. Yes, digging in the dirt does it for me, too, but true joy and peace come when sitting there, enjoying the fruits of our labors.
I recently read a quote at that said, “You shouldn’t be raising tomatoes, you should be raising Cain…or Lazarus!” I raise tomatoes so that I have the strength and the energy to raise Cain or Lazarus.
