Each Friday we feature a new site for our Blog of the Week. This week, we’re proud to spotlight Daisy Siskin from Little House in the Suburbs. Daisy is a regular contributor to the For Less section of Birds & Blooms magazine, and we adore her blog. It’s filled with useful how-to projects, gardening information and updates on goats and chickens! What’s not to love about that?
We asked Daisy, what’s the inspiration behind your blog?
Little House in the Suburbs is the co-creation of two friends, Deanna Caswell and myself, Daisy Siskin. We are inspired by our mutual fondness for making weird stuff from scratch, unconventional pets (like mini-goats and chickens) as well as a self-flagellatory need to tell people all about our embarrassing screw-ups.
How long has your blog been around?
We began blogging in August of 2008.
What’s your favorite backyard activity?
My absolute favorite backyard activity is to walk around my garden staring at my plants. I tell them when they are looking particularly gorgeous and say abusive things to the squash bugs.
What’s one quirky thing about yourself we can share with our readers?
If you live in my neighborhood and leave really sweet cardboard boxes or bags of leaves or grass at your curb for pickup, I WILL steal them. Compost heaven.
