I founded Apartment Farm on a warm June evening at dusk. I was sitting on a hand-me-down loveseat in the first one bedroom apartment I shared with my then-fiancé (now husband) in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago, cradling my computer in my lap and idly surfing the internet, bored out of my mind. I’d read all of the latest posts and news from the cooking, gardening and crafting blogs and websites I frequented. Then I stumbled across WordPress and thought to myself “I can do that”. So I did.
Currently, my husband and I live in our second one bedroom apartment in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago, where we finally have a deck of our own. We share our home with our baby son, various plants (the permanent residents is a bay tree), too many books (mostly about food, I admit) and a small herd of milkglass. I do the office gnome thing by day to pay the bills (oh, those student loans!) and Apartment Farming the rest of the time.
If you’d like to get in touch outside of leaving a comment on an article, please feel free to send me an email at apartmentfarm [at] gmail [dot] com. Oh, and just in case you were wondering, Apartment Farm doesn’t take advertising at this time, but I am open to mutual link exchanges if I feel we’re a good fit. If you’re interested, send me an email.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my little slice of the world.
