Howdy! So, who are we, exactly?

Urban pioneers, huh?  No, not those “urban pioneers”, the trendsetting yuppies who move into a neighborhood only to leave a path of Urban Outfitters, Starbucks, overpriced apartments, and boutiques in their wake… there’s no manifest destiny to be found here, and hopefully no chain stores moving in anytime soon.  Here, you’ll find just good plain livin’- gardening, bike commuting, homebrewing, canning, home cooking, soapmaking, re-use, permaculture, and hopefully soon some chickens (and rabbits, and maybe a pygmy goat or three, but now we’re dreaming big)!  We’re a citified southern country girl and a countrified local city boy just trying to make it here in the Wild West Side of Chicago… and most of the time, life is pretty good!  Now be a good neighbor, pour yourself a brew, pull up a chair, and sit a spell with us… talk about the weather (right now it’s lousy, but our little nook is pretty cozy), the crops, and which way the wind’s a’ blowin…
