Hello Out There HenCirclers!

So, I must be bored this summer since I'm addicted like crack to plurk. It's this online dealy where you can chat with like 2340287096 people at one time and sucks all your free time. Watch yourself. I told you so.

Anyway, so there I found Miz Vi of LnV fame and she is all hopped up on farmgirl crack and is dealing. I bought some. :D And so did like 90something others. Our first directive is to intro ourselves on our blogs. This is that.

I am a 24yo teacher, spinner, knitter, dyer, crafting baker. I plant plants and sometimes they live. I like to walk the riverbank and pick up river glass and cool rocks. I like to visit nature as often as I can, to get all Emersonian and transparent eyebally. My quest for farmgirl is to get back to where I came from. I have lived in the city for a year and it's really weird being here in the summer. Blackberries and blueberries do NOT grow in my backyard anymore. I'm sad about that. I miss it. Terribly. I've always lived out in the country (mostly) or lived somewhere that wasn't all citified like I do now. I live in the concrete jungle, nothing really grows wild here, very manicured, and I pay for it too.

But I'd like to bake WHO bread (planning to this week for shrimp bisque) and have a flower patch (2 containers ain't cutttin' it) and sew more than I do now.

I'd just like to get back some of the things I lost when I grew up, got a job, and moved away from home. I miss them.


ETA: WHO bread link, that's the acoustic version. I did't link the bread machine version because I'm not using a bread machine. But you can get it from her too.

Have you considered guerrilla gardening? =)

I know what you mean, I lived in town for a time and felt very disconnected. Together I know we can farmgirl on!
