Every year I try to include new things that I haven’t tried before into my gardens, while keeping my mainstays on board as well. When it comes to vegetable and herb gardening, I am mostly self-taught. I didn’t grow up with a gardening family, and even though I’ve worked in greenhouses, growing plants in the soil outside your door is far different than keeping potted plants in a greenhouse alive. So, sometimes gardening lessons take years to learn.

One of my first cooking experiences involved a tortilla, ramen noodles, shredded cheese, and a microwave. That is cooking failure. I may not be the best home cook in the world, but I’m worlds away from being the “cook” I was 15 years ago. My current garden is like that…years of making botanical mistakes to learn from, in order to have something I can be proud of. Is it the best garden ever? Far from it, but for me, it’s constantly evolving, getting better, and is a place I find endlessly fascinating.
