I’m Robin Ripley. I am co-author of Grocery Gardening and blog about my garden at Bumblebee Blog.

I am in love with good food and bountiful, beautiful gardens! I make as much by hand as possible, including cheese, bread, pastries and wine. As you can imagine, I cook a lot with eggs!

My paying work in life is mostly sitting at a computer or traveling somewhere to talk about what I did sitting at a computer. But hardly a day goes by that I don’t get to spend some time outdoors looking at the chickens, trees, grass, plants, birds and sky. Usually it’s because the little dogs demand their sniff time and drag me along as their chaperon. But I also spend a good chunk of time outside working in the garden and in the kitchen creating good food from what I grow.
