    Hey Rubber City Homestead. I don't think anyone will kick you out for no longer being in the city. In fact, some of us city folk are very much interested about hearing your story, since you're living the dream that some of us have. Would love to see some pictures of the new place. Did you start a new blog?

    Hi Friends! Regrettably, it has been some time since I have visited this site. The reason for this hiatus was the relocation of our homestead.... to some acreage. Two questions: 1. Can I still be a member if we no longer live in the city? And 2. We are trying to find organic farmers who may have an interest in leasing acreage, as we are not yet equipped to make good use of our entire slice of the pie just yet. Any idea how I could reach such folks???? Any help is appreciated!

    You've got a good operation going there in Akron. I checked out your blog. It's very nicely done. I like your way of cooking. As you say, it's what many of us do; look in the fridge and see what can go together. You'd never be able to replicate the meal but it sure does taste great at the time!
