About Me

Yo, I’m Ash. I grew up on a farm in Tennessee, and never really left the hills. I’m ready to make mistakes, get covered in dirt, and aggressively promote neurodiversity. Welcome to a record of my and my husband’s attempts of cultivating a 90-degree angle with nothing but some blueberry bushes and gumption. They/Them. Not Christian.
