I specialize in fresh, amazing, organic blended herbs.

My herbs gardens started in 1992, with a Backyard Patch. Now I manage ¾ of an acre and turn it into cooking blends, herb-infused bath and spa items and a multitude of herb combined teas. In my spare time I write a blog and give lectures on the uses of herbs.

My first garden, back in 1992, was a way to make my rented home my own, but became so much more. The herbs became more important than the vegetables and soon I was crafting teas and spice mixtures for my own kitchen. I soaked up knowledge on herbs and expanded the gardens to match my passion for everything herbal. When there were not enough relatives and friends I could give my creations too, I branched out into marketing my blends.

My first garden, back in 1992, was a way to make my rented home my own, but became so much more.

I soaked up knowledge on herbs and expanded the gardens to match my passion for everything herbal. When there were not enough relatives and friends I could give my creations too, I branched out into marketing my blends.

I have been selling my herb blends at farmer’s markets, craft fairs and garden walks for more than 15 years. Since every recipe is specially blended by hand and perfected until I am satisfied with the taste, texture and overall flavor, my blends really are one-of-a-kind. Because I blend everything myself if you need a custom blend because of allergies or sensitivities, I can easily formulate them for you.

You will not find binders, additives, anti-clumping agents, or preservatives in my blends, yet they have a long shelf-life (more than a year and a half.) Because I grow the herbs myself, they have a richness that commercial drying methods often pull out of the herbs.

Now, like those who taught me, I share my knowledge about herbs in my blog (www.backyardpatch.blogspot.com), through public lectures to groups, and through my unique blends. What I have found is there is no end to the information about herbs. To this day I find more and more interesting tidbits about herbs that make the formulation of my herbal blends something that will never stop as the combinations and benefits are endless.
