My name is Sarah. I’m a southern girl from the heart of the Mississippi Delta. Before we get down to the nitty gritty, let’s get over the basics really quick. Numero uno, I love my pups. Simple as that. I also love anything ‘old-fashioned.’ This is to include junk-tique stores, old family recipes and traditions, clothing styles from different eras, southern mannerisms and of course the occasional beverage with that same lovely name that me and my husband so effortlessly fell in love with while watching Mad Men. Throw in a little dirty humor, some ‘cool guy’ nuances, a smidge of weird and ‘sarah jokes’ and you get me. While I was taught to not ever say you hate anything. …I hate ants. While they amaze me, I still hate them. Done and done.
Ever since I was little, my brother and I were always told, ‘Go play outside.’ While I have always had a love for the outdoors, it never occurred to me to ‘grow up’ and get a master’s of science degree with a concentration in horticulture, but I did. And I am so glad.
I hope with ‘Head in the Garden’ that I can provide a fun and upbeat look into gardening. I want this to be helpful to all ages but especially encourage people who have not gardened before. Gardening is not a past time! It is so much fun to watch a plant go from a small seedling to something you can eat or admire for its beauty. It’s not hard! I want to provide a place that people can go to get great gardening ideas and information that they may otherwise not have known. While I may be currently based in Mississippi and a different zone than others, I hope to provide information that everyone can use!
I hope to make people just as excited about gardening as I am! Good luck and I hope to see your head in the garden!
