I just finished reading The Dirty Life
by Kristin Kimball. What a wonderful short read. Great for your summer reading. I loved the authors descriptions of food! Just made you want to start farming so you could make the deliciousness for yourself! Oh yeah, I do a little farming myself, will have to try a couple of the dishes she elaborates on in the book. :-)
I especially loved this clip from the book:
"You can't really own a farm, no matter what the deed says. It has a life of its own. You can love it beyond measure, and you are responsible for it, but at most you're married to it."
Just a loving account of getting started farming, the ups and downs, as well as getting started in a new relationship. How the farm and the relationship develop in this new community.
If you love farming or reading about farming and farmers you will enjoy this book.
