I write and teach about edible landscaping in the desert with a strong focus on culinary herbs and edible flowers. I have over 30 years of trowel & error in the garden with edible landscaping. I have written several books and booklets on gardening and using the bounty of the desert edible garden.
I'm always blessed by the things you share on this forum. We would definitely miss out on so much if you weren't here. It such a pleasure to meet you yesterday at the market. Thanks for the message. I think the VPA will certainly try to be a presence at the Mesa Market when volunteers are able to staff it. I loved meeting everyone there. I think Bill and Roger will be able to come most often since they live in the area. God Bless and Merry Christmas!
Thank you, Catherine for your sweet compliments! :) I sure enjoy and process all of your advice, help, guidance. You cannot know how grateful I am to all the very seasoned gardeners that help all of us newbies and jr gardeners!
