An urban micro farm experiment. Adventures in trying to live a simple life.
Friday, May 28, 2010
You know you're nearly finished with the tedium of the seedlings when you pile up your cardboard boxes and fold the plastic liners to store for another year. And, you move onto noticing other things in your garden. Oh my. Another beauty!
And, you start thinking about the book you want to read this summer while sitting in a chair in your yard. My favorite spot.
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.
