I’ve been gardening; mostly food, for over 55 years. I’ve been a master gardener, farmer, and community garden organizer, and I taught gardening for Iowa State University: And within my community.

I fed my family with homegrown food. Now I have a small space garden where I grow much of my food and provide an oasis for friends to chat. I also make my personal care and home-keeping products from my garden.

One of my great joys is helping others learn to love gardening. If you love something — you take care of it. And if you take care of your garden it will take care of you.

Do you prefer a formal look? Or, a casual look? You can create the garden of your dreams in whatever space you have.

Walk in Thyme

Gardens change from day to day. Below is my walk-in thyme. So-called, because of all the varieties of thyme along the path. Notice the mulberry topiary had no leaves in the first photo, and the plants were just greening up.

Thyme smells nice when you walk past it, attracts pollinators, and has many uses for cooking, health…
