What kind of HOMEGROWN are you?
Earth Mama
A bit about me:
Modern urban homesteading in Western New York utilizing an organic intensive raised bed gardening technique, vertical & gorilla gardening, foraging, gleaning, and bartering as alternatives to traditional/modern rual homesteading methods on less than 1/14 of an acre. Learning nonelectric homesteading skills as a family. One too many vintage issues of MEN magazine crossed with MacGyver type mentality done on the cheap.
Currently reading:
The Pioneer Lady's Country Kitchen by Jane Watson Hopping
Currently listening to:
NPR News
My latest DIY project:
Stripping, sanding, staining, varnishing 100+ year old wood work in my bedroom so finally 9 years after buying a poor woman's version of TOH (HUD property), I can have my own room!
