y Big Fat Green Life is our blogger of the month. Poppy Richards of Michigan began the blog in about 2009. Since then, she’s written about food, homesteading, veggies, and more. She’s an avid knitter (despite my belief that crochet is the superior fiber art) and claims the title of “International Champion of the Worst Greek Person Ever“ when it comes to Greek food. In Between doing all that and blogging, Poppy’s day job is as a physician scheduling coordinator for about 100 different doctors while her husband is a truck driver.
