I am a beginning botanist focusing on breeding/growing varieties of fruits and vegetables adapted to my environment. I am a beekeeper, and enjoy growing nectar plants for my bees. Growing mushrooms, mycology, and wild foraging are some of my other interests.
I am currently growing as many native fruit crops as I can find. I have Paw paws, Malvaviscus arboreus, and Persimmons (Diospyros kaki) as of now.
Next year (2018) I plan on starting a melon patch to make my own land-race melons.
