Howdy. My name is Jennifer Loyd. I am a freelance (emphasis on free) writer, horticulturist, educator and a farmer with an inferiority complex. As in, my “land” is really small. Just a suburban backyard actually, and I am a foodie who has fallen hard for the locavore movement. But I do have chickens and an outbuilding that I refer to as the barn. And sometimes, as I schlep a bucket of water out to the chickens at 7 am in 10 degree weather, I think “surely, this makes me a farmer.”
When I am not outside, I am cooking, baking, pickling, fermenting, canning and otherwise chained to the kitchen by the compulsion to produce. What little time is left in the day is devoted to writing, making small amounts of money, running, yoga, and reading.
