I am a plant lover who believes in living life to the fullest! I used to have a full time job in retail and grew plants to manage the stress but then I started selling my plants online in 2005 and began sowing the seeds of future inventory by bringing home hundreds of different plants a month.

I was selling plants by the hundreds instead of just a few at a time, however, I was so blinded by enthusiasm that I didn't run my business with any sort of strategy or cost accounting system, and always had to put my day job paycheck into buying plants, even though I was selling thousands a month, and THOUGHT I was making a huge profit.

I am a plant lover who believes in living life to the fullest! I used to have a full time job in retail and grew plants to manage the stress but then I started selling my plants online in 2005 and began sowing the seeds of future inventory by bringing home hundreds of different plants a month. I was so excited and happy to get out of bed every day! I was selling plants by the hundreds instead of just a few at a time, however, I was so blinded by enthusiasm that I didn't run my business with any sort of strategy or cost accounting system, and always had to put my day job paycheck into buying plants, even though I was selling thousands a month, and THOUGHT I was making a huge profit. In 2008 decided that if I really wanted to open a nursery one day I needed to quit my job and go back to school. In December of 2011 I finally received my Bachelors of Science in Accounting Degree from San Jose State University. Currently I am growing the plants that I love and enjoying the heck out of it! I decided to sell my plants on Etsy because I believe the Etsy Community shares the same values as I do; family, community, a healthy planet, fixing things and reusing them instead of throwing away, and hand- crafting products with love. My mission is to provide this wonderful community with beautiful and healthy plants, that bring joy and peace into your lives, and to encourage all people to grow their own organic fruits and vegetables. Thank you for helping me towards my dream and I wish you peace, health, and love, Joanne Johnson
