Urban Farming

It has been a year since we first began planting our garden here, and I relish the success of our efforts.   The work was intensive and our rewards all the sweeter for it:


Even Stella has enjoyed some of the bounty:


Technologies such as vertical growing and aquaponics are allowing people to grow even more in small spaces which can have a positive impact on the growing global urban populations.   It matters less about how much we grow – what’s important, I think, is that we try to grow something so that we continue to move ourselves more towards self-sufficiency and away from a total reliance on the food chain.  Now wouldn’t that beet all?
