I've got a tomato!!!
TOMATO CAM again.
It's sort of crazy, but I love to be right in there with the tomato plants! You can lose yourself when you get up close like this. And, once again, the camera really isn't capturing the moment.
And here we are! I cannot believe it. My first three tomatoes! I have no idea what they are, but they are probably either Sweet 100s, Gooseberry's or Isis because these appear to be growing in clumps. I gasped when I was doing my usual walk through and found them.
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.
