Why peas you ask? Why do I love them so much? Well, when my husband and I moved out to the West Coast – I thought I knew a thing or two about gardening. However, each and every day I learn something new. It is a hobby that ever changing. While we were attending one of the many farmer’s markets we would frequent, I noticed several individuals carrying around bouquets of a flower that I had no idea what it was. After going on several garden tours, I saw many different sweet peas growing in gardens. I learned that the fragrance is so intoxicating, but it is the one fragrance in nature that human hands can not duplicate to perfection. It is easy-to-grow from seed and makes a beautiful vertical, climbing in the garden. Once I started growing sweet peas, I ventured into edible varieties, however, my husband protested since he hates peas. I knew his opinion would change once he experience the taste of freshly grown peas especially sugar snap and snow peas.
I'm a wannabe urban farmer, gourmet cook and lover of a good treasure hunt. In this blog, I will post about fun experiences from my garden, kitchen and home. My life goal is to get closer and closer to being outdoors on a daily basis - gardening in the sun until the day I die. I have always been drawn to nature, which is why I went to school for horticulture and work in the amazing gardening industry.
