About This Blog


I like seeds.  I like growing food.  I study botany.

If you want to get a notice that I have posted a new blog entry in your email box instead of coming here to check, you can enter your email address in the right column.

This blog is fun for me to do and the writing helps me to organize my research.

I really like learning about growing food.  I grow organic edibles at Zarkin Gardens.  I mostly grow heirloom seeds from the 1800′s and the early 1900′s.  I like reading old garden books too.

I also have fruit trees growing, berry bushes, asparagus, rhubarb and other food which I mostly did not start from seed.

I’m in the Ozarks.  Zone 6b.

I have things for sale from time-to-time in the Store.

Thanks for stopping by !


Princess Z.

P.S.  The name Zarkin Princess came with my love for what I call “Zarkin Royal Nature” in the O’Zarks.  Nature is the royal kingdom as I see it.  I claimed my status as a royal peasant and became a Zarkin Princess.
