This one came highly recommended - I've seen it mentioned round and about. The novelist Barbara Kingsolver, with her husband and two girls, move back to the family farm in the Appalachians (from the Arizona desert). Their goal is to see, in a year, if they can eat seasonally, and locally, and grow as much as possible themselves. In Arizona, pretty much every foodstuff carried with it a burden of the fuel required to get it from wherever to Tucson. One thing they aimed to do was to reduce this burden. I'm not finished reading it yet, but it's good, thought-provoking stuff (with some very do-able recipes).
Sometimes a photo a day, to make me look more closely and see what is around me to be considered and captured, using the immediacy of digital photography. And possibly the odd rant, from time to time. Things made, found, discovered. A cornucopia. On the One Vivid Leaf blog, crochet!
