FarmCityAre you looking for a good book to take along on your vacation this summer?  All month long ASweetLife’s bloggers and contributors will be sharing some of their favorites.

My favorite diabetes book is Pumping Insulin but it’s not exactly the sort of paperback you’d want to bring to the beach. So instead I’ll recommend Farm City, by my friend and colleague Novella Carpenter.

It’s about her experience starting and running an urban farm in the Oakland flats — she lives in an old house next to the freeway, and has managed to raise everything from bees, rabbits, chickens, ducks and turkeys to dairy goats and two enormous pigs. Her story is funny, inspirational, and wonderfully written.

Catherine Price is a regular contributor to ASweetLife.  She writes the blog The Reluctant Diabetic.
