Top Posts of the Year


End of the year. Wrapping things up. Looking behind. Last year I gave you Top 5 posts. This year, I’m going for 10. While some posts from continue to rank higher, this list if for posts from 2011.

You all seem to follow along with some of my randomness. Talks of urban homestead, charcuterie, salads, chickens, food preservation, and books all piqued your interest.

Stuck in a system that oppresses us all.” Power to the people!
