Farmer in the City





Location:  Port Angeles, WA

Day Job:  Wife and mother

The Digs:  Backyard, Containers

Crops:  Blackberries, Blueberries, Figs, Green beans, Lavender, Mint, Strawberries, Sugar Snap Peas, Tomatoes, Onion,

Why I'm Getting Dirty:  It started out as a way to save money, then I had to clean out our storage area for all the canned goods, so it became about making our home better. Then I had way too much fun canning after working the garden all summer! Now, all the kids are involved, as well as my husband!
