A bit about me:
I can't say I was raised by really cool hippy parents, but it must have been in my blood because as a kid I always migrated towards the kids whose parents were into growing there own food, baking delicious nutty grainy breads and cooking amazing meals. I remember always wanting to hang out at their house. As I tried to find my place in a society that is consumed with stuff, I just didn't really fit in. I finally realized what was missing, a much simpler life. This is my attempt at getting that life. I live in Southeastern Indiana with my very patient husband and four kids. We just purchased a very old small farm house on 1 acre and are in the process of what seems to be a never ending renovation. In our future, I dream of fruit trees, large veggie and herb gardens, chickens, and if I can talk my husband into it another animal or two or three... he, he Now to just make that a reality.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Chipotle honey lime chicken over mixed greens topped with a roasted corn and black bean salad.
Currently reading:
Mother Earth News, cooking and gardening blogs, etc. No time for books right now.
Currently listening to:
Whatever pops up on my MP3, Bob Marley, The Beatles, Jack Johnson, Eva Cassidy, Classical, Dave Matthews, Pepper, pretty much anything.
My latest DIY project:
Compost Bin

Hi Melissa - woohoo I love swapping seeds! Anything in particular you're looking for? I'm scaling back this year and really only planning to grow tomatoes, flowers and a ton of herbs. If you have any of those seeds, that would be great!
