Summer Reading, Urban Farming

A Friend just sent this link. It looks right up my alley,  Urban Farming in San Fran.” Farm City, The Education of  an Urban Farmer” Now I haven’t read this one, But I did read Farewell my Subaru and loved every word. And don’t forget “The Urban Homestead” A fabulous how to book from my neighbors Kellly and Erik –  and OH YES!  there’ll be a class with them on September 13th at the Shoppe.

So go ahead, dig up that parkway and grow something!

I met the cutest farmers ever and picked up 1/2 a cow to be split by 5 families. Loading it back to the shoppe The 3 boxes are beef,  4 chickens on top about 5 pounders each,  and apricots in the basket. Don’t forget about the award winning olive oil ( not photographed)

Check out the farm!   http://www.chaffinfamilyorchards.com/

I was so excited I forgot to photograph the meat, neatly packaged in one pound servings for the most part.  More on that later.
