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

Day two -- evening.
It was a busy day. Somewhere along the way, one of the workmen left. It must'av been during the two hours that I took off on my bike trying to escape the activity. They still seemed to do a lot today. At one point, I was standing in the opened up old walk-in closet so I definitely had a bird's eye view of the back yard. Yikes.
The existing bathroom is in the middle.
I can't remember how many times I rode my bike past this view of the house and tried to imagine what it would look like with that addition. It seemed like there was so much wasted space.
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.
