I was so excited when fellow garden blogger, Bren Haas, reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in doing a guest post for her blog Creative Living. Let me think about it – of course I would! My goal for this year is that I blog more frequently as I have started a new journey in life as a Stay at Home Mommy!
Spring is one of my favorite times of year – when the earth is waking up and all the plants are coming out of dormancy and emerging from the ground. My rhubarb has been going gangbusters and fresh California strawberries are showing up at the grocery store. So it is no better time than the present to make something fresh with those two ingredients like garden fresh rhubarb and strawberry crumble. Head over to Bren’s blog to get the full recipe:
About P.S. I ♥ Peas
Ever since I was a child, I remember falling in love with flowers. My first flower memory was being intrigued by the blooms of Bleeding Heart (Dicentra). Love of nature and art led me into pursuing a degree in horticulture & landscape design. For 15+ years, I worked for different wholesale companies including Proven Winners, Spring Meadow Nursery (Proven Winners ColorChoice Flowering Shrubs) and Zelenka Nursery. Then in 2013, I started my own business Flora & Fauna Media, which specializes in public relations outreach from social media to media publications. Now, I am focusing on being a Stay-At-Home mom and my writing career.
I garden on less than an acre of property near Seattle, Washington. Making the most of my space was extremely important to efficiency, which led to removing lots of grass. Now, our property is a sanctuary filled with fruits (blueberries, apples, strawberries, raspberries, cantaloupe, fig and huckleberries), vegetables (kale, beets, peas, tomatoes, squash, potatoes, cardoon, zucchini, green beans, peppers, tomatillos and sorrel) and herbs (rosemary, chives, thyme, mint, oregano, lemon verbena, pineapple sage and sage). Growing our own food is an important mission to me and with a young child teaching is valuable knowledge to pass down generation after generation . If you teach a man to garden, he will eat for life!
My husband and I love to cook together. We find new recipes and try them weekly. Wildcrafting has become a fun additional to this pastime. Harvesting stinging nettles or dandelions and making them into something that is edible and delicious is so rewarding.
