Plants, animals, and people living in Coastal North Carolina are influenced by large, shallow bodies of water, called "Sounds." The Sound's daily influence can be a challenge or a gift. The word "sound" also means "in good condition; not damaged, injured, or diseased." Sound Harvest and Garden will try to reflect both those meanings, as I aim for sound vegetables, herbs, chickens, eggs, and ornamentals, all from my home by Core Sound.

1 x 1 = 4
I have one houseplant. It lives in four pots and is beautiful once a year. Meet my holiday cactus. It gets ignored and abused. In the summer it lives outside, and each time a storm or the dogs knock it out of it's pot and break it into pieces, the pieces become new plants.
The original plant came from a friend 25 years ago. Every year it (all versions in all pots) puts on this show, despite my lack of good care. It apparently has great holiday spirit!
