After 40 years as a professional herb and lavender grower, I now garden just for fun in my brand new potager, located in Zone 5, central Indiana. Of course, I must have flowers as well, so there are gardens around my home, as well as a new berry patch. When I’m not in the gardens, I’m writing “herbal fiction,” experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, preserving my harvest, or traveling to visit great gardens and gardening events. Visit my website at www.caroleesherbfarm.com for hundreds of photos of my former gardens, the lavender field, recipes, monthly newsletter, and lots more. Information on my four “herbal fiction” novels, “Herbal Beginnings,” “Herbal Choices,” “Herbal Passions,” and “Herbal Blessings,” appears there, as well as an on-line shop. The books can also be found at Amazon. They are a delicious blend of romance, mystery, gardening tips, and herbal lore.
