Hi! I am Tien. I am embarrassingly awkward at intro in person and online but here are some tidbits about me, the gardener behind these posts! I am a registered dietitian by profession, wife to an architectural designer, and mother to three rambunctious little humans.
My whole life, I’ve always been surrounded by avid gardeners. It never occurred to me to start growing my own food until I had my first child. My first “garden” was a couple of little planters tucked along the edge of a tiny Boston balcony. My harvests were at best unremarkable but enough to sow the love for gardening in me to last a lifetime. While nurturing my tiny garden, I would daydream about a bigger space to grow more food. In 2014, my dream came true when our family moved to Miami, FL. I now garden on a 0.18 acre lot. This is a major upgrade from a 4×6 balcony wouldn’t you agree?
Delectable Day is a space I carved out to dedicate to the things I love outside of my dietetic profession and role as wife and mother. One of the things I love most is gardening. I am not a garden expert. Everything I learned, I did it by scouring google academy, reading all the gardening books I can get my hands on and following all that up with lots of trials and errors in our garden. Growing food in zone 10b specifically Miami, FL is special and I hope you’ll find this page useful. Thank you for being here!
