Grow create sip!
Hi there! My name is CeAnne, phonetically spelled "see-ann", like see ann run :) I'm the face behind Grow Create Sip. My husband and I, and our 4 adopted children, live and work on our small 2 acre farm in Oregon. We love growing our own food but we especially love growing herbs for culinary and medicinal uses.
We have grown food in pots, in garden boxes, in drain ditches, out in uncultivated fields and in greenhouses. Our love of growing herbs started in 2014 with a package of calendula seeds.
