Last night, as I was looking back through my old posts here for inspiration for a post for the new Rose Orchards Farm Market blog, I realized something… March 24 was the 1 year blogiversary of Farmer’s Daughter!
As it turns out, I was busy on March 24 this year accepting an award for environmental leadership, so it makes sense that the blogiversary slipped my mind. It was a great way to celebrate the occasion!
I was inspired to start this blog by my good friend Jessica, who writes Green Mamma. At the time, I sent out an email about the upcoming green fashion show at school, and Jessica replied to me that she’d like to interview the coordinator, my student Kayla, on Green Mamma. I started reading through Jessica’s articles and I was hooked. I’ve always loved to write, and I decided to give blogging a try.
I started Farmer’s Daughter as a way to chronicle what we were doing at home. My husband Ed and I had just gotten settled in our home, and I was adjusting to the free time I had since there was a lot less work to do around here. When we were building, we’d spend so much time here on nights and weekends, not to mention that I was working on my first MS degree at the time, oh and teaching full time, too! It was a crazy schedule, but I found that I was bored when it was all over. Writing this blog has been a wonderful way for me to explore living sustainably, gardening, cooking, and my local food system. I’ve gotten more involved in the community, picked up some crazy ideas, participated in challenges, and made some friends.
Here are a few of my most memorable posts from the last year.
