An urban micro farm experiment. Adventures in trying to live a simple life.
Saturday, April 28, 2012
I have always gone with the idea that if you sleep with New Yorker magazines and have books started and piled up all over the house, that it's just like reading these things. It doesn't work like that. You have to put on your reading glasses and prop yourself up on your pillow and actually open the magazine and finish an article to call it reading. Just doesn't seem safe to go to bed with a computer that has my favorite magazine on it or a half-read book started. Ouch!
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.
