I'm Marcy Lautanen-Raleigh growing herbs is a passion I've had for more than 20 years now. The Backyard Patch is my own herb business started in 1995. I specialize in fresh, amazing, organic blended herbs. Those for cooking, tea and bath -- and they are all home-grown and hand-blended. In the last 20 years I have gained a knowledge of herbs and their flavors that I share here.
From My Family to yours -- Have a Joyous Christmas and a Blessed New Year
This is our unusual ways of celebrating:
Yes that is my cat under the tree. We never saw this cat unless the tree was up then he sat in among the gifts until we took the tree down (in February!) At which point we would not see him again until December!
My brother and sister in law in Wisconsin, the only real tree I ever see these days!
We celebrate with our plush family... long story!
