Mick Telkamp

Mick is a former Midwesterner now living in North Carolina with a yard full of chickens, a thriving garden and a pantry full of home-canned harvests. A suburban homesteader and avid cook, his ongoing exploits in Southern food and culture can be read at The Communal Skillet . Mick believes in making the most out of any size yard and wonders if his next-door neighbor would mind if he bought a goat.
