Reading List

Farm City

This week in The Synthesis, I talked about Novella Carpenter‘s memoir, Farm City. It’s a great book, one that I absolutely recommend reading if you have even the slightest inclination to grow or raise your own food. She’s also a great writer and the memoir aspect of her storytelling is heartfelt and lovely and worth reading, even if you’re not particularly interested in raising your own food, but are interested in the minds and hearts of people that do.

I’ll leave you with a fabulously dorky picture of my childhood self that my grandma sent me. Not only did I love my grandma’s chickens, I apparently also loved rocking the hairstyles of the early nineties while spending time at my grandparent’s ranch. Shrug.
