At our lake home in northern Minnesota, we’ve always had part of our yard that we didn’t mow. We enjoyed seeing wildflowers that grew there but most of the area was filled with grasses. In 2014 we hired Jeff Poenix to prepare the area and seed it with a mixture of wildflowers. It has been a source of great pleasure for us. This spring it was time to do a controlled burn to rejuvenate the garden. Jeff is an experienced firefighter, so he came and did it for us.
