About the author: Bryan Connolly farms organically at his small homestead in northeastern Connecticut where he buys and grows seeds from far and wide to satisfy his fascination with plant genetics. When not "swamping the world with with plant propagules," Bryan raises goats, chickens, and turkeys on the farm and assists customers at the Willimantic Food Coop. He has a master's degree in pollination biology from the University of Connecticut and has worked for the University of Mississippi's Medicinal Plant Garden, New England Wild Flower Society, and the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection.
