the Dirty Life / NPR

I liked this one. It had the potential to be a cutesy back to the land story that doesn't seem realistic/sustainable, but she is walking the walk and talking the talk. In theory I wouldn't mind having a farm, but I'm nowhere near as hardcore as she and her husband are. Butchering animals is emotionally not easy for me, hence I don't eat much meat, but they are doing it. Harvesting 10,000 lbs of potatoes doesn't seem trivial, either. A good listen, and I'm wishlisting the book...
