My niece, Renee, is an avid gardener and now an author. For those of you interested in urban farming, check out her blog, Hip Chick Digs, and her book, Modern Homestead. To think it all started with a fun little blog is truly amazing!
She comes from a long line of urban farmers.... her great grandfather, raised enough food on his 50 x 100 ft city lot to actually feed his family and sell produce! Her dad (my brother) had a wonderful city farm where the kids grew up in the garden and fruit trees. My son still reminisces about how fun it was to go there and graze around the yard!
Her latest venture is raising some cute ducklings.
