The Backyard Farm

I saw this  half price "Deal Swarm" offering in my inbox and thought, what a wonderful idea.  The Backyard Farm is an Atlanta based company, who will come to your home and consult with you how to use whatever space you have available to set up your own produce patch, or whatever you have your heart set on, within zoning regulations.  They can even start you out with chickens and other small animals too.

(meet Harold, their new little Nigerian Dwarf Goat)

The Backyard Farm will test your soil to see what would grow best.  And even if you live in the middle of the city, they can help you figure out, what will work for your specific situation.

This concept really makes sense to me. With all of the concerns about what is in our food, if you have the desire to grow some of your own food, we all know that fresh produce always tastes delicious.  I hope other communities have something similar available.

So tell me, (well known in my household as having the brownest thumb ever), do you grow anything?  I'd love to hear about your successes.  Tell us where you live and what grow.  Thanks for sharing.
