I’m the oddball cousin you never want to introduce your friends to, but I promise not to talk bad about you behind your back.
Any good southerner knows to wait until you’ve left the room first! My posts here at UGC will be all over the board, much like my own life.
When life gave me lemons, I sprinkled in some fresh rosemary, grabbed my peppermill and made a killer lemon pepper chicken.
In all seriousness, I have been gardening all of my life; the only thing that has changed over the years has been the venue. From huge plots on my grandparents’ farm in Alabama to a few containers on my terrace in New York City, I have always found a way to grow my favorite vegetables and herbs no matter where I happened to be at the time.
I have a love for food in a variety of forms. For over a decade I was a devout vegetarian and have spent time as both a vegan and a raw foods diet follower. I spent several months in a Buddhist monastery where I learned less about cooking than I did about appreciating the food as an integral part of the circle of life.
I am a very social person and I am always happy to answer any questions you might have, so speak up and remember — there are no stupid questions, only stupid people.
