Gardening makes me happy
We visit a gardener who took the blank slate that was her home’s backyard and turned it into a lovely garden space she can’t wait to go check out each morning. Tammy Algood walks the paths of this energetic gardener who loves her ornamental plants, the vegetable beds, and her water feature.
Tammy Algood — Tammy has loved to garden and cook her whole life. She wanted to spend as much time as possible with her Grandmother who gardened and cooked, so she learned at her knee. Tammy is a marketing specialist with the Tennessee Department of Agriculture. She has written numerous cookbooks, including Farm Fresh Southern Cooking and The Southern Slow Cooker Bible. “Being a host on Volunteer Gardener allows me to meld both of my passions into one activity…cooking from my garden.”
