Gardens are my livelihood; nature my entertainment. Over the years I’ve managed vegetable and flower test gardens for Organic Gardening magazine, and planned appropriately historic flower gardens for Morven Museum in Princeton, New Jersey. I’ve kept the beautiful Glasbern Inn property in Fogelsville, Pennsylvania blooming for many summers, and now grow vegetables for the inn's authentic farm-to-table restaurant. Relatively late in life, I acquired a BS in Horticulture. Later yet, an MS in Environmental Science. But my real education has come from the garden--every day I learn something new. In this space I'll share discoveries and insights. Note: I was recently quoted in the New York Times! Check out "Ergonomic Tools that Prune Away Gardening Pains"
