What year did you become a Master Gardener?,
I became a Master Gardener in 2019.
Do you hold a position in the group?
I am the editor of the monthly newsletter and am thankful for my fellow members who contribute to the task!
What are your gardening special interests?
I help to wrangle a 1/4 acre fruit and vegetable garden with my husband. I love Texas natives for their beauty, ease of care, and for their gift of creating wildlife habitat. And, I will poke an herb plant just about anywhere I can find a space.
Is there a particular gardening book you enjoy?
While they are not gardening “how to” books, I would highly recommend Noah’s Garden by Sara Stein, and Second Nature-A Gardner’s Education by Michael Pollan.
Have you had a particular gardening success?
I am particularly proud of the veggie garden. After 5 years of working the area, the garden provides the majority of our food for the entire year.
What do you enjoy about being a Master Gardener?
I love to learn, and being a Master Gardener keeps my brain active! My fellow gardeners are always ready with a recommendation, a word of encouragement, a new way of looking at gardening, and plenty of teasing, camaraderie, and love.
Do you have a favorite plant?
I cannot narrow it down to one favorite, but I do love Gregg’s Mistflower for its gift of attracting Queen butterflies.
