About The Author
I’m Kelly, a small-scale, organic herb farmer, author and speaker growing in coastal Maine. I believe I was born in the wrong era, am deathly afraid of snakes (ironic, I know) and garden stalking is completely reasonable behavior in my opinion.
An enthusiastic gardener, I want to share with you detailed, cutting-edge growing techniques, tricks and tips so your gardens will be brilliant and your neighbors will be jealous!
