The Urban Homestead
This is Nusia holding garlic she just picked from Kelly and Erik's garden. It was my first time eating fresh garlic--roasted and spread on bread--and it was, of course, delicious.
Kelly and Erik's book, The Urban Homestead was just released. It's "Your guide to self-sufficient living in the city," and I could easily go on all day singing this wonderful book's praises, but I'll keep it brief. The book is positive and encouraging and easy to read and fun and it will teach you how to grow lettuce and preserve food and make beer and start a compost pile and clean your house with homemade nontoxic cleaners and live a little more engaged with the world and people around you.
