megan in madison

This is my chronicle of being awesome in Madison, Wisconsin Zone 5a. My name's Megan. Often, funny things happen to me in Wisconsin.

I like my garden(s). I really like social media, the Internet and my road bike. And I never want to get diabetes.

Read more about me.

(Do I have to say this? Views here are mine alone.)

I'm going to turn 30 in 2015 so I only have two years to complete my 30 Under 30. This is what started it all.

Sharecropping Plot Update: I found taters and drank two beers!

Yes, Bethany did forget to dig up the taters. But I found them! What fun.

I turned over this section of our shared plot and planted via seed: Detroit Red Beets, white onions, carrots, purple top turnips, Chiogga Beets and Ruby Red Swiss Chard.

I’m two for two on my gardens today.

I’ll take these two Rhinelanders for $2.25.

My neighborhood DOES need more beer. YAY!


“Madison’s newest brewery is still technically based in Peter Gentry’s living room, but it’s bringing excitement to the near east side. Gentry, 32, is looking to open Madison’s smallest brewery, which might also be one of smallest in the state. He’s calling his venture One Barrel Brewing Company and is interested in a location on the 1100 block of Williamson Street. “It’ll be a neighborhood conversation space, like a coffee shop, only with beer instead of coffee,” says Gentry.

Gentry isn’t making beer yet. He is still in the process of working through lease details. However, he’s already accumulated several thousand dollars in new brewing equipment in anticipation of being able to start installing it within the next few weeks. His goal is to be open and serving his beer by summer.”

These are all wonderful.


Beer. Someone thought it would be fun to flip me off.
