The garden is a great teacher of all things in life.

Carrie Petty’s Home and Gardening Favorites

I often get asked, “What home and gardening products are your favorites?”

I’m a simple girl, and I tend to lean towards tried and true and heirloom. I’m a big fan of Fiskars Garden Tools. They’re durable and these days you can get them shipped to your door! Easy, peasy! For seeds, I adore Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company. I trust their pure heirloom seeds, and I love the diverse selection. Their catalog is one of my favorite things to browse in the winter!

You may have read elsewhere on my site that my absolute favorite gardening book is The New Victory Garden by Bob Thomson. Be sure to snag yourself a copy. Used bookstores often have one and trusty Amazon will always be glad to ship one to your door. You may have noticed I have a great love for the birds too. Wild Birds Unlimited is my go-to. They may be based out of Indianapolis, but they have a great online shop too.

Now, everyone needs a little R&R too and what better way to get some R&R than to connect with nature in a beautiful setting. Two of my absolute favorites are Brown County Indiana and Florida’s Captiva Island. The sights, sounds and smells of nature in both places will make you swoon.
