from sky to seed


IMG_5600I’m Rose. I love writing. I love photography. I love animals, farms, the Ozarks. I grew up in a family of aviators and became one myself and went ahead and fell in love with a pilot, too. I love my mister and our adventures, which cross landscapes near and far and the intimate terrains within us. I love food. I love to eat and I love to cook — a lot.

As Salter says, “Life is meals.” I care about food. I care about food education and food politics. I want food to be good. I think food is beautiful. I think food should mean something. I believe wellness starts in our guts. I started gardening because I wanted to know more about food. I catalog my failures and successes here.

But most of all, I love to write. I write here, I write for magazines. I’ve written for TV. Someday, hopefully very soon, I will write a book.

On this blog, I write about food and gardening and animals. I write about love and loss and the messy business of living. Everything is connected. Nothing is spared.

    Am assuming this Flying Farmer group that my family belonged to back in the late 50’s 60’s and early 70’s which was the Indiana Flying Farmers. I think I stopped going to the meetings when I started college. I made many friends that I have wondered about in the years since then. Then the Navy, marriage, moving to New York and having a family kept me busy for many years. If u know of anyone who was in the group at that time please let me know by e-mail.

      Hi Sue,

      Unfortunately, it’s not, and I’m afraid I don’t have any mutual acquaintances or connections to share with you. Generally speaking, the term “Flying Farmers” has been used for several groups of barnstormers in the Midwest and pilot/ranchers in the West. I think there’s a stuntman who performs at airshows that also calls himself “The Flying Farmer.” But we are simply farmers… who fly…!

      Please stick around!
