VICKSBURG, Ms. (KTVE/KARD) — Albert Winschel a Vicksburg native and former Marine has turned his passion for gardening into his own business.

I was in the Marine Corps for over 10 years, went on several deployments and one way I found to deal with stress was gardening.

Albert has been gardening for several years now and his sauces are inspired by the cuisine in Mississippi.

Well initially I started out just hoping to fund the garden and keep my hobby going. As it grew, I started coming up with ideas, so I’ve got long term plans that I would love to see happen and I have short term plans.

Albert grows all of his locally sourced vegetables right in his own backyard. Alberts sauces first became popular within his own family.

I tried a variety of hot sauces. several of them got very popular with family and friends. Then I decided that was one way to keep the gardening hobby going and then it took over the gardening hobby. So, now I do hot sauces, extracts, and such but I would like southern siege Sauce Company to take part in the revitalization and development of Vicksburg.
