Province /prah-vince/ n. 1. the country outlying a city 2. one's area of interest or expertise
Province is an urban homesteading blog based in northeast Los Angeles. Brad and his partner AK are transforming their 1-acre property into an urban microfarm. Their focus is organic gardening, permaculture, chicken & dove rescue, and vegetarian cooking. They also run an antiques/vintage/fine art online shop.
The term daybook is an old word synonymous with a journal or daily ledger. The Province Daybook is inspired by early American almanacs—such as Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanack (1732-1758)—that contained musings, quotes, household tips, gardening advice, and weather patterns. Although his wasn't the first almanac, Franklin's was extremely popular and its quirky format has stood the test of time. One might say old Ben was the original blogger. Province follows in his footsteps.
Brad is a culinary school dropout who has been vegetarian for 15 years. AK is neither of those things. We don't cook meat at home (except for our dog's homemade food), so together we've learned the secrets for making plant-based dishes taste complex and highly flavorful. We enjoy sharing our vegetarianized classics and new recipes that bring herbivores and omnivores together at the table.
