Sixth-generation gardener Renee Wilkinson embraces the old school while adding a bit of funk in this savvy-smart guide to homesteading. From a windowsill to a sprawling backyard, these are all places we can grow vegetables, make homes for animals, and fill our cupboards with canned decadence, all the while flashing our personal style and taste.
