Oh, the pressure of the first blog post. I’ve been writing entries for months in my head, but now I’ve finally gone and done it and actually started this little sucker up.
We are myself (Lisa), my husband (L’Homme) and our daughter (L’Oiseau). There’s also a maniacal cat (Biscuit) and a dog that’s almost too mellow (Popcorn). Yes, I do realize that I’ve named my pets after food. If you keep reading this blog, you’ll soon see that was no accident. Food occupies a central role around here.
The supporting roles are filled by organic market gardening, child-rearing, knitting, crafting, etc., etc.
More later about what is going into the garden right now. That’s right, I said what’s going in, even though most gardeners around here (southeastern United States) are taking more out at this time of year. We reverse the seasons here at Etc. Farms — we grow only for ourselves in the summer months and do most of our growing and selling during the Fall-Winter-Spring. So, more later about what we are planting.
Thanks for reading!
