This month's special gift is a copy of The Dirty Life, by Kristin Kimball! If you have not read it already and like the sound of a heartfelt memoir about the many joys and challenges of working the earth, this is the book for you. Because Kristin's book is so popular, I want to make sure that I get this copy into the hands of someone who hasn't read it yet. Please share a comment here or on the related Instagram post if you'd like to be entered in the drawing. Little Farmhouse Flowers newsletter subscribers who are interested will be entered twice in the drawing. If you're one of our newsletter readers, please be sure to mention that in the comment. And, if you'd like to join our newsletter- it's easy- you can sign up here.
Kristin's story about resurrecting a derelict farm with her husband, Mark, in the beautiful Champlain Valley of the Adirondacks takes you through moments of extreme joy and- warning- some sadness, too. Her memoir is richly written and full of details of their love for each other and for the promise of what could come of a new Essex Farm. Theirs is a story of doing things the old fashioned way, of horse-powered plows, of sustainable practices, and of finding a way to provide a "whole diet" to their CSA members.
