I'm a full time office professional and my husband has his own home-based business. We both come from small town backgrounds and people who were fairly self-sufficient. We moved to Vashon to have the best of both worlds- close to Seattle yet still rural. We have 5 acres and always hope to do more gardening that we actually get done. Our biggest gardening focus is on fruits and vegetables (assuming the deer don't get everything)- so this informs much of our cooking adventures. I love literature, music and theater.
