Hello garden gals and guys! My blog is about all things farming, so I thought I’d share a book that I read today. It’s called The Dirty Life: A Memoir of Farming, Food and Love by Kristin Kimball.
Now before you decide not read it, let me tell you that this is one woman’s account of how she fell into farming–literally–and the ups and downs that she and her husband faced as they started their new farm.
I read the book in about three days but could have easily read it in one weekend! It was entertaining, educational and just downright funny in some spots. If you’ve ever thought about having a farm, this book gives you an eye-opening look at what it really takes to run one. Give it a read! There should be a copy at your local library.
Well, that’s all for now garden gals and guys! Until next time…..
happy garden thoughts!
Thanks for the great book review! And thanks for plugging your local library too. We librarians always appreciate it.
Hi, Katie! It was such a great book and I will be doing more reviews as I read more gardening books. And I am a regular at my local library!!
Glad to see a book review here (but of course I'm biased that way). LOL
LOL….yeah, Heather, I could see why you would be! :o)
