  1. This was such a fun episode! Do you have any other book recs like Animal, Vegetable, Miracle? I loved that one, but have never found anything quite equal to it, in terms of writing. I’m also a big local foodie/supporter, though we are just getting our garden started after moving out of NYC.


    1. Hi Kelcey! Thanks for listening. Two other farming memoirs that I liked were: The Dirty Life: On Farming, Food, and Love by Kristin Kimball and Farm City: the Education of an Urban Farmer by Novella Carpenter. I won’t say the writing is equal to AVM (Kingsolver is the queen!), but they were solid farming/gardening memoirs that I liked when I read them. -A
