Welcome to Carmen in the Garden. I have always been dedicated to self-reliance and sustainability. I find it incredibly rewarding to do something on your own. That’s how I found gardening. I have gardened in any space I could find – growing wheatgrass in my dorm, indoor herbs on a windowsill, balcony potted gardens – you name it, I small space gardened. I was fortunate enough to be part of a small, backyard urban garden located in Southern California.
I didn’t know much when I first started to grow in this larger space, but I was determined to grow what I could. I hope to share with you what I have learned and what I continue to uncover on my gardening journey. Whether it be growing, preserving, cooking or problem-solving – you have come to right place.
