Volunteer Background
I'm living in northern Maine. I grow on a small farm as naturally as I can. I enjoy propagation of perennials.

Soil Details
I've got 2 fields and lots of microclimates. Some wet areas with loamy goodness. Some dry and rocky stretches. I've got enough land to find some sort of ideal spot, unless it's completely out of it's element. The area has been used for annual veggies and such for some time.

Deer and moose are a constant reminder of mother nature. I usually plant 3 of anything given the opportunity. One for me, one for the birds and bees, and one for the hungry mammals.
