A City Girl by birth I was soon converted when I married a real country guy with a Master Gardener father. He soon taught me lots of gardening tips & I later took the Hanover Master Gardener Extention course & Master Food Preserver Course (1985). Been canning, freezing & putting up food ever since & also making Jams & Preserves, relishes, pickles which won me blue ribbons at the Richmond VA State Fair. I have a favorite Farm Journal Cookbook I rely on a lot because the recipes are so wonderful. I have been selling my Jams & Preserves for over 10 years & have recently posted a website to sell on the net. A photographer by profession, I enjoy the outdoors & nature & value our beautiful world! May the Lord Bless you.
