About Me | ChristinaAuthor | Inside Herb Gardens
How My Love Of Gardening Started
Growing up as a child on a beautiful dairy farm in upstate New York I remember the great joy of growing season every year. Fields would be filled with growing crops to feed the livestock animals but the garden would be lush with vegetables and herbs to fill the pantry through the winter.
The joy of the growing season and that fresh garden taste never had to end when the seasonings of the garden could be brought in and grown through the colder months with pots of fresh herbs thriving in the windows of our kitchen.
A touch of fresh basil or a pinch or oregano in a hot pot of sauce or soups in the dead of winter could bring the garden back inside all year.
That passion for gardening and growing herbs indoors has stuck with me through my adult years.
I have been growing indoor herbs and plants for over 25 years. Through failures and success, I have learned a lot about what it takes to create beautiful indoor herb gardens. I have raised a large extended family of my own including six wonderful children. I hope some of the love for growing passes on to them.
In addition to growing throughout the year indoors, I also continue the traditions of outdoor gardening as well. I always will consider myself a student even as I pass what I have learned from both these methods on to others.
This journey is never over. As new plants grow each year so does the knowledge and methods to create them! May your gardens forever bloom!
