Hi. I’m Pamela Reed. Do you want to be friends? Let’s sip some tea together in the garden, with cats on our laps. Doesn’t that sound purrfect?
I was born and raised in the coal mines of Pennsylvania where I helped my father grow his tomato plants so high we couldn’t see out the kitchen window in the Summer. I then moved to Pittsburgh, PA to attend art school much to the confusion of all my family. There I met a boy named Matthew had matching neon blue hair as me, so of course I fell in love with him.
We moved in together and he brought his childhood cat Essy along. I also fell in love with Essy. Shortly after finishing school, we packed up all our belongings in a U-Haul and moved to New York City to follow our art dreams. We moved to Brooklyn in 2005 and we have lived here since. We are now parents to 6 cats and 3 daughters named Enceladus, Proxima and Europa.
At Brooklyn Farm Girl, we show that it's possible to grow your own food anywhere, even without a backyard. Then we bring our bountiful harvest back to our apartment and transform it into delicious recipes to share.
