Volunteer Background
I find a lot of sense to rhythm my life with the plant world thus integrating peasant practices in my community throughout the passing seasons.
Favorite Crops & Least Favorite Crops
We like to grow cardoons, Phaseolus Coccineus (Soissons and Akahana mame), overwintering vegetables (kales, lettuces, other greens and flowering biennals (brassicas: turnips, broccoli sprouts)) and edible perenials. We have trouble growing healthy heads of broccoli (because of swede midge)
