Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

**from my blog, Semi-Farmed Kind of Life**


February has sucked in myriad ways. I really am thankful it is the shortest month and practically over, because I'm not sure how many more blizzards, rescheduled appointments, sick family members and broken things I can stand. Even though we woke up today to a screaming septic alarm, an emergency weather radio going bonkers and at least a six inch deep lake in our backyard (we don't usually have one), I'm actually feeling pretty blissful and relaxed this evening. Really.

Not only had the water receded by the time I got back from work, but I got a package in the mail today from Homegrown.org, one of my all-time favorite sites for like minded folks. Inside was a card from Corneila at Farm Aid, some cool project ideas on cards, and this amazing looking book called "Meat: A Benign Extravagance". I guess I won the giveaway! Thanks, Cornelia and my Homegrown friends- your package could not have come at a better time. A parcel post pick-me-up is always welcome 'round here.

Could you use a little late winter postal love too? I want to keep spreading the joy around, so I'm going to give away a copy of Michael Pollan's "Food Rules"! Here's what you've got to do for your chance to win:

1. Tell a friend about my Semi-Farmed blog and encourage them to follow along OR "like" Semi-Farmed on Facebook.
2. Post in the comments which of the two you did and a note telling me what you like about the blog and what you'd like to read more about so I can make it even better!

I'll count up all the replies and ask the hubs or my daughter to pick a number @ random and that will be our winner! Thanks for making winter a little more fun and for all your help!
