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

My first eggplant. Apparently it's a long, narrow one vs. the rotund, typical ones. Some swiss chard and another pound of green beans in there with some parsley and basil. It's called shopping in my back yard.
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.
