Hear It From Me

Hey! I'm Dominique! I'm a New Orleans-grown, DC-based accountant with a knack for cooking and growing food.

I've always had an interest in cooking, but developed a love of gardening in 2014, when a friend built me a starter garden as a housewarming gift. Since then, I've attended gardening conferences, and expos, and my garden has tripled in size.

I invite you to browse my site, learn about my passions, and explore what excites and interests you as well.
