Why can't we be a normal family?

Those were the words of my 9 year old son, B, when I told him we would be getting our milk delivered from South Mountain Creamery  The thought of drinking milk that came straight from a cow put him over the edge. He's refused to drink the milk ever since although if it's hidden in a milkshake, he asks for more.

I live in Washington, DC and decided to try my hand at blogging about urban homesteading. Over on Facebook, my friends know I spent the summer tending my vegetable garden and preserving the harvest. I'd like to share thoughts about farming in the city and trying to live green (within reason and budget).


  1. I'm looking forward to hearing about your homsteading and to hopefully pick up a few tips along the way. Congratulations on the new blog!

  2. I'm so glad you started this project, Stacey! Your FB posts are always so interesting.

  3. normal as defined by a 9 year old is a family who buys their milk at Safeway! We certainly don't have a traditional "normal" family, whatever that mean.
