My name is Debbie Hill, and in 2011 I relocated from Marietta, Georgia, where I lived for 19 years, to Dallas, GA. I
am a SOUTHERN GIRL, born in Norfolk, Virginia. I enjoy growing many different types of herbs, from the usual culinary herbs
such as basil, oregano, parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, tarragon, etc., to the medicinal herbs such as evening primrose, St.
John's wort, feverfew, burdock, echinacea, and so forth.
Many of these herbs are perennials which bear beautiful blooms as well! I also try to grow veggie starts each spring, and
have a small personal vegetable gardem. I grow in raised beds, in pots, in the greenhouse, and in the ground.
From the time I was a tiny three year old child I grew up in a home located on a few acres in a rural community,
and our family had a rather large garden each year. My grandfather, Floyd Carroll, who was a Methodist minister and a gardener, is
the one I inherited most of my "green thumb" from, as well as my parents. The feel of the dirt in my hands brings back
pleasant memories and is soothing to my spirit. To see the tiny seeds I plant become beautiful plants is always a miracle
to me! I never grow tired of gardening! As you can imagine, I do not fancy winter months too much - I am an outdoors kinda
