An urban micro farm experiment. Adventures in trying to live a simple life.
Sunday, September 21, 2014
It's Sunday. The Packers lost. I hung laundry out and it got rained on. Also managed to get in a great bike ride. There are lots of leeks this year. They must like it cool and rainy. I made a combo leek soup using a head of cauliflower, a few potatoes for bulk and 4 nice leeks.
All cut up with nowhere to go.
It's time to watch an old movie on TV....."House of Strangers." Never heard of it!
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.
