So good! I want to work on a farm now. (OK, not really - I'd hack all of about 3 hours doing the kind of hard work that Kimball describes in this memoir.) So much respect to Kimball and her husband's farming methods, ideas on food and eating, and work ethic.

Quotes Victoria Liked

Kristin Kimball
“In his view, we were already a success, because we were doing something hard and it was something that mattered to us. You don't measure things like that with words like success or failure, he said. Satisfaction comes from trying hard things and then going on to the next hard thing, regardless of the outcome. What mattered was whether or not you were moving in a direction you thought was right.”
