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

A new year.
Unlike previous years....especially that year of 100 inches of snow....this year, there hasn't been much. But, it's only January. The brussels sprouts are still out there and so are the two areas of kale.
I ate a few of the sprouts. They were pretty good considering they've been through near zero temps out there. Perhaps the hardiest of anything you could plant.
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.
