We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Planted dozens this year, three different varieties (SE Mass). The ones in shade didn't grow well at all. Planted two (Giant Green) in tortuous full sun--one looks as wimpy as the shaded plants; the one right next to it looks awesome although only a couple feet tall. Consider yourself warned.
