Cold Antler Farm
A few weeks ago I found a book at the library entitled:
Made From Scratch-Discovering The Pleasures Of A Handmade Life by Jenna Woginrich
And scooped it up to read cover to cover in one sitting. Learning about how someone takes the steps to lead a more hands-on life intrigues me. Whether it is learning to garden, knit or canning fruit, I can't get enough. We are smack dab in the center of a city, but as time goes on, I think more and more of making do with our own hands.
The best part of the book (for me) was learning how she kept chickens. I have wanted chickens for a few years now. Fresh eggs, personality, a cute little coop...what more could a girl want? And so many people these days are keeping a couple chickens in their backyards in cities!
Hubby is holding me back on the whole chicken venture, so I haven't called down to the City to see if we have any ordinances regarding live chickens in town. Since I love Hubby far more than I love the idea of a hen house, I just know it is not going to happen. So, I am living vicariously through those who DO keep chickens.
Jenna has a great blog as well that you really should browse around on: Cold Antler Farm
She posted a recipe for 'Masonades', little jars of fresh lemonade or iced tea that is well worth the click. And since we are going to be in the middle of a Spring blizzard at this time tomorrow, I am needing all the summer reminders I can get.
Enjoy the weekend!
