I love gardening and I suppose it’s because I was born into it. I’ve been gardening since I was knee high to a grasshopper, which makes it second nature to me and I just do it, without even thinking about it.

And when I pick a cucumber, zucchini or tomato from my garden the first thing I do is absorb it’s aroma – so fresh, rich and abundant and I smile – knowing that I’m adding my little part to the flow of the natural world.
