  A note from LynnCanGrowIt:  
"I have been influenced by gardens and plants since childhood. My earliest memories include a white picket fence with a flower garden. That garden was my grandparents' and from it grew roses, irises, lily of the valley, dahlias, and peonies. The peonies were favorites, and now, decades later, my grandparents' peony is in my own garden.

Throughout my life, my mother has been my greatest gardening influence. Watching her, she has helped me appreciate gardening and all of the joy that a garden can provide. As an outdoor enthusiast, she taught me to watch clouds, smell rain, crunch leaves in Autumn, and walk in the woods.....

And here I am now.... I live in the northern Shenandoah Valley, in the country. I am married with three 'grown up' sons and two Golden Retrievers. Our property is mostly wooded with mature Oak and a stream running through the woods. A few acres are cultivated with gardens and lawn. We enjoy wildlife and provide a bird feeding station to attract Finches and the Downy, Pileated, and Red-Headed Woodpeckers.

My husband and I enjoy vegetable gardening together, too. Our harvest provides ample food for our small homestead. What we do not eat seasonally, we preserve to carry us through until our next gardening season. I also enjoy foraging for foods in our region and believe the nourishment and satisfaction of foraging will serve the soul as well as the palate.

Everything necessary in life can be found on Earth.
