I have been thoroughly impressed with my current hosts. There is freshly made chocolate and strawberry ice cream in the freezer, a tupperware container full of fantastic black bean soup in the fridge, and chickens out back sitting on eggs. We just shined a light through one of the eggs and saw a little baby chick growing inside. This is the life I want to have when I have a place of my own: making good food, connected to nature.
Do you know of good resources for learning to have a simple, homespun life in the city? I know less than I like, and want to know more!
