    Hi there! My name is Violet (really...just happened to end up a gardener! :stew1: ) I live in Northern California (zone 9), and I love to garden. I grew up helping my dad and grandma, but got more seriously interested in college when I began growing vegetables in containers on my tiny apartment patio. Now I mostly grow flowers (we get our veggies from a CSA farm so I don't have as much need, aside from herbs and things I can't get enough of like sugar snap peas!)

    In my non-gardening life, I enjoy knitting, sewing, yoga, reading, and walking with my little rescue dog, a chihuahua mix.

    Happy to have found this community!
