A fun book....

I don't have much time today but did want to put up this book I just finished, "The Dirty Life" by Kristin Kimball.
The book tells the tale of the author's adventures as she moves from New York City to an upstate farm to follow love and some dreams. The book chronicles the first year of this very ambitious, hard working and interesting couple as they decide to offer food year round to their community. They learn how to take care of and "harvest" animals of many kinds, how to grow wheat and more vegetables than my grandmother could've shaken a stick at. It's a great story so if you're in the mood to read about how some people walk the walk as well as talk the talk in the organic farming CSA movement, this is one to look for.

I could never do this but I am always interested in the people who do. It is quite humbling and inspiring at the same time.
