Favorite Crops & Least Favorite Crops
Most of my attention goes to perennials, although the occasional annual vegetable or herb does sneak in. Fruit trees are a particular point of interest.

Other relevant information
There are a few acres of shady woods here and a few acres of grass. Deer destroy anything that isn't fenced. Buckthorn, multiflora rose, and oriental bittersweet are the major plant pests. I've had tree deaths consistent with phytophthora.
