Meet Sally Nguyên from Murphy, Texas, United States 🇺🇸 "I am a pharmacist by profession. My gardening obsession started when we built and moved into our first home. I was tasked to do the landscaping for our yard. I started with crepe myrtles, then roses and then vegetables. Currently I am hoarding fruit trees! I recently started with 200 varieties of seeds that included tomatoes, beans, squash, zucchini, lettuce, peppers and so on. A lot of the Asian vegetables and herbs that we grow, you can't find in your typical grocery stores like Walmart or Kroger. Plus, we plan dinner around what's ripe and ready to be picked from the garden. Gardening is a family activity for us; my mother and aunt live with us, so my children learn so much from them. My mom is a huge part of taking care of the garden with me. We also make compost using any leftover fruits and vegetables and food. I'm part of our 4 square mile city's garden club. We organize plant and seed swaps and tour each other's gardens. Also, we volunteer at the city's community native garden. It has been 4 years since I started gardening, but I still see myself as a newbie. Learning tricks of the trade every day, I've set up gardens for family and friends. I actually get a chance to try out different garden layouts and experience the thrill of a new garden...on someone else's dime! Gardening is very similar to growing older, you learn as you go. And hopefully you have someone special to share the experiences, mistakes, and inspirations along the way.” @humanswhogrowfood features stories of home gardeners, farmers and community gardens across borders and cultures.
