Most of my gardening is fuctional – I either want the plants around for shade or to eat, so most of my plants are vines, veggies, herbs, etc. I’m also fairly new at this, so I’m still learning as I go.

The only space I have is a standard backyard in a suburban area, so I’m working with what I’ve got.

I can cook some basic foods, but I’ve been experimenting with more interesting recipes lately. I like using fresh ingredients, especially herbs, but a small package can be so expensive. Many of my plants were planted because I wanted to make some dish out of them.

I like traveling too, although I find I don’t often have enough time or money to commit to it.
