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

It's the simple things.
I never want to get to the point where I'm not grateful as can be for something as taken for granted as two working sinks sitting right next to each other. The one of the right has been out of commission for about 6 to 9 months. The garbage disposal was broken and it stopped draining. Yuk. My new best friend, the plumber, came over today and replaced the disposal and when I came home from work, I had a real working sink situation again! It was far better than going to a spa or something self-indulgent. I've got my sinks back! So simple. So taken for granted. I had a feeling like I had gotten the best gift ever. Not a fancy sink but it works again!
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.
