independent business in Tempe, AZ.)
Both of us here in the Farm Stay U.S. office just finished The Dirty Life: A Memoir of Farming, Food, and
Love by Kristin Kimball, as did Kim of Grand View
Farm in Vermont. It's also one of the prizes for our photo contest!
Kim next plans to read Year of Plenty by Craig Goodwin.
Penelope of Canyon Wren Farm in Colorado intends to look at
Gaia's Garden, as well as perusing the seed
catalogs, looking for tomato varieties to grow. She's looking for
the perfect heriloom varieties, as well as a great paste tomato!
Penelope recommends to our readers the book Claiming Ground by Laura Bell.
The Schrock Family from Mojeji Ranch
in Missouri is planning to read The One Straw Revolution: An Introduction to
Natural Farming by Masanobu Fukuoka.
How about you, readers? Leave us a comment below and let us know
what's on your reading list this winter!
