All The Leaves Are Brown

SANDPOINT, Idaho: A blizzard is upon us and tomorrow’s forecast says 21 degrees below zero. If I had wanted weather like this I would have moved to North Dakota. The only thing to do in a situation like this is hunker down with a good book. I am currently reading (concurrently) The Grapes of Wrath & Bringing It to the Table: On Farm and Food. It has been an interesting dichotomy I would highly recommend. It’s funny that Michael Pollen claims Wendell Berry to be the first critic of industrialized farming, when John Steinbeck was dissing the “man” and the “machine” (albeit fictionally) way back in the 1930s. That’s the short version of what I have to say about that.

In other book related news, I’ve been broadening my horizons to the empire of Etsy, and am excited to share some vintage plant related reading material with you:

Introducing I GREW THIS retail?? The general focus of the store is vintage homesteading and house wares – hopefully publications on those matters, if they take. I will be constantly expanding as time allows. My newest place of employment (name withheld) is the perfect catalyst for this new endeavor… please let me know if you are seeking anything vintagey, I would love to keep an eagle eye out for anything your heart desires – igrewthis@gmail.com. Happy hunting!
