My husband is a cabinetmaker, a man who works with his hands. I respect that. We live in an old farmhouse in the distant suburbs of Philadelphia – closer to Allentown, actually – in bucolic Bucks County. It used to be more bucolic. It seems that when someplace is beautiful, everyone and his brother wants to move there, so tracts of houses now grow where corn used to grow, and traffic lights have popped up like weeds. But it is still a great place to live.
I like to teach. Obviously, since I teach my own children. But I would like to share the knowledge I have accumulated over the years, and new things that I am still learning, with a broader audience. I hope you will find my website useful, informative, and fun. I hope to not only encourage new gardeners and interest experienced gardeners, but also to give parents suggestions on how to interest children in nature, offer craft ideas and recipes, open up people’s appreciation for weeds and wild things, and show how nature has inspired great works of art. A plan of large scope, but I like to think big. I hope you’ll all hold me to it!
It will be my goal to post several times a week. Don’t be strangers! Stop and say hello with a comment when you visit!
