I come from a family of gardeners and I've always known that as soon as I had my own place to garden, I would have one. I've been gardening for about three years, so I still consider myself a beginner. But I've been buying and using dried herbs medicinally and for cooking for about ten years.
For the last decade, I have worked for magazine and newspaper web sites as a programmer and as a content creator. Now I am a web editor for www.finegardening.com and www.vegetablegardener.com.
