The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Congratulations, Sherilyn!

Egyptian onionsCongratulations to Sherilyn in California for winning our Egyptian Onion giveaway!  I'm always intrigued to hear about other people's gardens, so was thrilled that Sherilyn gave me a rundown on her urban homestead:

We're here in So. Cal., land of earthquakes, wild fires and horrible train wrecks ~ we've survived them all. I have a small garden where I used to have the lawn. I plan to expand it and only buying edibles to plant in my front yard from now on. We also have snuck some ducklings on our property hoping for eggs in the spring.

I'm inspired by Sherilyn's hard work at rooting out the environmental catastrophe which is the American lawn!  Stay tuned for another giveaway soon....
