Moss doesn’t just grow on the north side of trees. Plants have favorite places to grow and thrive. Finding certain kinds of plants in various locations can tell you about things that used to be there like farms or homes. The type of soil, the amount of water all affect what types of plants will grow in a location. Some plants come crowding in when the soil is disturbed, others come later. One type of tree, the beech, can form an entire forest although it’s actually just one plant. Plants have friends that also prefer the same sort of environment. When hunting for cranberries, look for sphagnum moss. Meet Ottar on the porch of the Troll House, prepared to walk a bit.
