  • Description

    Description

    My wife Nadine and I enjoy growing veggies and flowers, watching movies and foraging in the forest for whatever is in season. We pick berries, mushrooms, and seasonal fruit. We own 1.5 acres of land we wish to convert into more gardens and orchard. We have a black lab, a mini schnauzer and a small cat.
