. . . is a real place.

Donna_1My husband and I own a small homestead in Buckeye, Arizona. We raise heritage turkeys, chickens, and dairy goats.
My passion is growing heirloom (antique) vegetables in an organic garden, but I struggle in the summer when the temperature of the sand rises to 145 degrees. Many of my seeds are borrowed from the ancient ancestors of the local Native Americans, who planted them generation after generation, until the treasures became acclimated to the hot, dry, alkaline conditions of the low desert.
What will I do if these seeds become extinct?

I need a mentor,
so I make a wish under a
magical mesquite tree.

Is a gnome living in my garden?
You’ll have to decide for yourself.
In the meantime, keep an eye out for my first book, Baskets for Butterflies. Laugh at my funny mistakes and discover how a garden gnome teaches me environmentally-friendly methods for saving endangered seeds.
