Favorite Crops & Least Favorite Crops
Love growing plants with history and a story. Herbs, vegetables, flowers. Native plants are my specialty. I'm in zone 5b with a lot of heavy clay soil but have access to a lot of space with cultivated beds. I can't think of anything that I haven't been able to grow, but I'm sure there's something.
