"My Empire of Dirt" - Article NY Magazine. Has anyone read this? It's fascinating! [moved from Outer Boroughs board]

I just finished reading "My Empire of Dirt" by Manny Howard in this week's NY Magazine. Mr. Howard decided to build a farm in his tiny Brooklyn backyard and vowed to eat only animals that he raised there and vegetables that he grew for one month! This article is fascinating and hilarious!

Take a look here: http://nymag.com/restaurants/features...

In the magazine version there are 2 photos of two dishes that he made -
Home-Garroted Roast Rooster & Maimed-Rabbit-Euthanasia Stew!

After reading this article I have a new appreciation for farmers, markets and all food producers in general!

I also admire Manny for his determination and great humor through out his venture!

Has anyone else read the article?
