What kind of HOMEGROWN are you?
Fill in the Blank
Fill in the blank:
Beginning Gardner
A bit about me:
My journey towards physical wellness lead me to cooking with whole and real foods. This summer I wanted to take my food passion a step further by starting a small raised bed gardner, joining a CSA, and replacing my every day products with local products. I recently started blogging about "localizing" on girlgonelocal.com
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Local beet, beet greens, goat's milk feta, and mushroom whole wheat pizza.
Currently reading:
Animal Vegetable Miracle
Currently listening to:
Pandora radio: Today's Country
My latest DIY project:
My 11' by 5' raised bed garden with tomatoes, green beans, peppers, cucumber, and zucchini.

After Reading The Omnivore's Dilemma...

Although I've been reading Michael Pollan's book somewhat out of order, I've enjoyed each book and this is what I learned from the Omnivore's Dilemma here. Definitely makes me want to continue an increasingly "homegrown" lifestyle.
