About Us

Greetings fellow Take-Chargers! The Edible Terrace blog was created to chronicle our own path toward growing our own vegetables and herbs. I (Amy) got really tired of my insane grocery bills-simply because I want to eat healthier (looking at YOU $3 pepper!).

August 2016: We recently moved from the Florida Keys to the Florida Panhandle near a little town called St Marks. Why? Because we wanted more land (which is at a premium in the Keys!). We also wanted to become more self-sufficient. Near future plans are to: build a greenhouse so I can go to the grocery store in my backyard and install a tankless hot water system (reduces energy usage). There is so much more but that is first on the list!  Updates and pictures to come. 

We are currently in USDA Hardiness Zone 8B. ​

Personal background

My husband Kevin and I are happy empty-nesters! We lived in Phoenix, AZ until 2013 then made the move to Florida. We LOVE it here! My degrees are in IT so I get to work from home on multiple projects (I love variety). I do freelance writing and researching. I program websites. AND I garden! Yep. That's me.

Kevin is back in school working on his Master's degree in Anthropology. He is the one who got me interested in gardening. Now, every morning I make him look at the progress of all my budding young seedlings. Hah!
