Master Gardener, Teresa O’Connor, has written about everything from sustainable gardening to vertical gardens for many notable garden magazines. Warning: Once you get onto Seasonal Wisdom, you might want to stay on there for a long while.
What:[quoteicon author=”Teresa O’Connor”]You’ll find I’m passionate about protecting sustainable family farms and local foods, as well as helping people understand how plants have been used for centuries in culinary dishes, cultural festivities and throughout the household. So, if I’m writing about growing lettuce, don’t be surprised if I mention a few of Thomas Jefferson’s favorites, or an odd salad recipe from Medieval England. At Seasonal Wisdom, there’s plenty of cultural history, seasonal folklore and plant superstitions to be found, and I’m always adding more.[/quoteicon]
