    If you know me, you know that I’m very passionate about one thing… food. Good food. Great food. Great tasting food. Great tasting, healthy food. Great tasting, healthy food that I can grow! And… if you know me, you probably know I’m pretty pissed at the world about the “food” that is in our grocery […]

  • 04/21/13--21:24: Urban Farm Beginnings
  • It’s hard to start an urban farm when… it won’t stop snowing! What the heck is an Urban Farm?  Glad you asked!  Basically, an urban farm is, well, kind of like it sounds, a farm in an urban setting.  In other words, food production for personal or business use right here in the city.  Chances […]

  • 06/17/13--22:24: Urban Farm Update
  • Back in April I introduced you to my bare front yard and the beginning of my urban farm. Quite a bit of time has passed since then and there’s been a lot going on, so let’s see how far we’ve come, shall we? As I was waiting for spring to come and mulling over the […]

  • 07/09/13--21:10: Rise With The Son
  • My son is an early riser. He has been since the day he was born, nearly nine years ago. And every day since then I have cringed that he’s an early riser. That is, until today. You see, today we started harvesting from our little farm in the city, the little urban farm, the front […]

  • 07/21/13--20:07: Dismembered
  • As I was doing my daily walk through in the garden today, checking for ripe or ripening fruits and veggies, signs of insects, and the need for water, I noticed some wilted squash vines. My stomach fell. I kept looking, scanning all of the squash vines trying to figure out how many got hit. I […]

    I don’t want to be the one to break the news, but we have about 55 days left until our average first frost hits the Twin Cities.  Now before you get mad at me for mentioning frost, keep in mind that I’m actually trying to give you good news.  That means it’s time to do […]

    Brrr… It’s been more like September or October the past couple of days, with our cool, wet, windy days and chilly nights. But more than it being out of character for a summer day, it has an effect on our veggies too. I’ll make this short and to the point, the Twin Cities are expected […]

  • 09/17/13--20:09: Urban Farm September Update
  • I checked my blog today to see when I last posted about my Urban Farm project. June?  No!  I must have posted something since then, I thought to myself.  I surfed a little and realized that sure enough, the last you heard I planted 40 straw bales in my front yard. Well, shame on me!  […]

    Sometimes we can dream, make plans and see our dreams come to fruition, but then a couple of cats come along and sabotage our dreams in a flash. As a landscape designer, I’ve been trained to try and plan for everything when designing a site; accessibility, location, exposure, sight lines, potential hazards, storage, screening, water, […]
