Fran Alexander knows a thing or two about food.
As a part-time cafeteria worker at Perrysburg Junior High, part-time cook and waitress at Perrysburg's Pioneer Inn and member of the Wood County Master Gardener Program, growing, cooking and serving food makes up a large part of her life.
"I'm busy constantly," Alexander said. "But it's been fun."
Alexander began gardening when she was just a child to help her parents with their home garden.
Now, she tends her own 50-by-100-foot garden with her husband, Curt, growing strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, peppers, peas and anything else she can use to make a fresh, delicious dish.
"My mom and dad always gardened. It just was a thing that we did," she said. "Here we raise a lot of things and we give a lot of things away because we have so many."
Alexander also sells what she makes from her garden, such as salsa and hot mustard, at the inn and at local fairs.
