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

Get out the magnifying glass!
I believe this is Russian Kale.
And this is spinach. I sprinkled the seeds a few weeks ago when we had a run of warm weather. It has been very cold for about two weeks. Cold enough to find frost on at least two mornings. But a little rain over the weekend and some sun today seems to have gotten things going.
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.
