Cranky Fat Feminist Speaks

liberal feminist from the south who ran away to college in the mid-west, and quickly retreated back after my four years were up. trying to save the world one picture book at a time; attempting to live healthier to lose weight, but without giving up beer. challenging the idea that “big is beautiful” as well as what I’ve learned and experienced about women, gender, and feminism from my time in college as well as my time in West Africa. pissed about the apathy of the world, ready to create change one mind at a time.

I'd love any comments you'd like to share! And as always, I'd love for you to click on an ad when you're done reading, it's a simple free way for you to give money towards my student loans!

[fat] april gardening

I've started planting my seeds and shoveling through compost... here are some of the highlights so far--

spuds from 5 organic Russet potatoes
that were accidentally forgotten about in the corner of the kitchen over winter
cucumber sprouts in a deli tray
(lid is in the background, for a greenhouse warm self-watering effect)
cloche -- I swear there's a baby tomato growing in there!
potato spuds are planted around the edge of the container

the beginning of my bucket garden--
leaves, not-quite compost, more leaves, steamy compost, and some dirt
