Description
When Novella Carpenter—a former student of Michael Pollan's, captivated by the idea of backyard self-sufficiency—moved to inner city Oakland and discovered a weed-choked, garbage-strewn lot next door to her house, she visualized heirloom tomatoes and a chicken coop. This is the story, full of hilarious moments and unexpected farmer's tips, of how her urban farm grew to be populated with turkeys, geese, rabbits, ducks, and two 300-pound pigs.

"Fresh, fearless and jagged around the edges, Ms. Carpenter's book ... puts me in mind of Julie Powell's Julie & Julia and Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love."—NYTimes
