Hi, I’m Debbie Wolfe, founder of The Prudent Garden. On my blog, you will find garden and nature related projects, crafts, and recipes to help you enjoy your home and garden. I believe that anyone can create and each week I share inspirational projects, recipes, and crafts that will get your creative juices flowing.

I started this blog in 2013 with my husband as a way to document what we had going on in the garden, and to practice my photography skills. Fast-forward a few years and my blog has evolved to more than just gardening. My knack for repurposing objects found outdoors or in the home has launched me into a career as a DIY writer. In addition to my blog, I spread my love of DIY by writing for HGTV, DIYNetwork, Mother Earth News, and more. Although my husband has since stepped away from the daily blogging grind, he still continues to cultivate our vegetable garden and pops in every now an then to offer some of his garden wisdom. Together, we garden on an acre lot in the western suburbs of Atlanta.

I hope you join me as I break down step by step on how to create something fun for your garden or home or cook up a tasty dish from seasonal produce. The sky is the limit! My interests include sewing, fiber arts, building, ceramics, as well as gardening. Check in often to see what you can create for your home and garden.
