An urban micro farm experiment. Adventures in trying to live a simple life.

And so it begins.
It seemed like a good day to get the transplanting started....the end of a beautiful day, just enough sun and wind to perk them up and get a taste of what's ahead once they make the big move to the outdoors. These are the Tigerellas. I was a little worried about them because they were starting to drop some leaves that were turning yellow. Tomatoes.....you look at them the wrong way and you've got some sort of blight going on. Let's hope they just wanted their own room! I'll bring them inside tonight while we wait for just the perfect day to start getting used to the elements.
In historical order: printmaker, typographer, graphic designer, semi-professional handbell musician, radical minimalist and self-sustaining urban micro farmer and a collector of mid-century objects d'art.
The question is: can I turn the backyard of my home into an urban micro farm?
The verdict is still to come but through much planning, hard work and blissful ignorance, it definitely seems like a good possibility!
2009 was the official start of Daisy Farm.
The purpose of this blog is to serve as my written record of how things are going, a little history and perhaps some miscellaneous ramblings that might crop up while I'm waiting for something else to do in the garden.
