BLOG: Plant More than Just Vegetable Seeds

In gardening, trial and error is to be expected. Each year, I try to plant a couple of new things just to see how they grow, what affects them and to taste their deliciousness.  I’ve been gardening most of my life, but I continue to be amazed at how much there is to learn. I know a little but not a lot about ornamental plants. I know much more about edible plants and herbs. I also know that what the books and experts say will work for...

BLOG: Thrive Instead of Survive

As a horticultural and agricultural consultant, I field a variety of questions, and it’s fair to say that many of them I don’t know how to answer.

She asked me what I wanted to talk about, and I told her that I wanted to hear...

BLOG: What God intended for good

It’s unfortunate that today, the practice of “herbalism” is more often than not intertwined with ungodliness. Herbalism becomes spiritualism and many times crosses lines that God’s Word tells us not to cross. Like many facets of life, people take something that God made—something He even intended for our good—and they corrupt it with evil. James 1:5 tells us, “But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all...
