I have had organic gardens for over 20 years and like to specialize in flowers, medicinal and useful botanicals and vegetables. Currently I have nearly 3 acres and this last season I grew loofah and lavender and have planted small patches of raspberries, blueberries, wild grapes, apple trees, beach plums and pears. I also have grown corn and would like grow more. I live in an1880 farmhouse and have made many changes and upgrades myself including electrical and plumbing. I have a 48 inch garden tractor and a large pull along tiller. I built several chicken coops and a green house and feel incomplete without a flock of chickens in the yard. My property borders back bay wildlife sanctuaries which brings both beauty and beasts. I love the insects and critters and work to protect my hens from rodents, snakes and four legged predators continually. Everything I do is done naturally, without chemicals, leaving the smallest footprint possible.
I am putting my house on the market and moving back to Connecticut to help my daughter who lives in Ellington and wish to continue raising chickens, growing herbs and plants, for making soaps and organic skin care products.
