Well, congratulations on the move and good luck. I wondered what had happened and whether you had come through the hurricane well. Glad to see the silence wasn't due to utter devastation.

hey farmtina!
i love that you are doing this. i had a small veggie patch behind my apartment in los angeles,which was so much fun. and i now that i just moved to new york city, i definitely want to start a mini bucket garden on my roof. as far as planting in the ground, you'll have fun making mistakes and learning how our beautiful world works. it feels so rewarding to see your first fruits, no? but great job on the blog, and i will definitely come here often to get tips on planting in giant pots, since this is very new ground for me. happy planting!

Exciting news indeed! I am glad to hear you are doing well, I too was concerned about not hearing from you after the hurricane, good to see you are well. Can't wait to see FarmTina Version 2.0 :) you'll do great.

Congratulations and best of luck with the move! I read about you in Bust magazine, and I can't wait to see what you do with the new space!

Tina, good luck to your move! I can't wait to see pictures of your new home especially your garden.

I grew up with a HUGE garden (and I Mean HUGE, about 1/3 acre worth) so I've been mniissg it alot! This year I got to plant my very first garden all of my own! We created the garden from a grass plot...SO not fun to do...we keep getting grass growing in there; I have a feeling it will be a couple years yet until we can stop getting the grass coming back. But this year we planted Corn, Carrots, Radishes, Peas, Tomatoes, Raspberries, Rhubarb, Pumpkins, Cucumbers, Strawberries, Red Bell Peppers, Jalepeneo Pepper, and Cauliflower. Sounds great right? Sadly only the tomatoes, cauliflower, peppers, 1 pumpkin plant, 1 TINY rhubarb Plant and a few strawberry and Raspberry plants actually grew. (due to weather our garden was planted really late this year) So hopefully next year I will be able to plant all the above and more and have better luck next year! I really LOVE gardens!Returning the Visit and Follow. :)

Hi! My name is Martina and I have a "farm" in my New York City backyard called FarmTina.

My definition of "farm" is really just a living space that brings together home grown vegetables & fruits, animals, flowers & trees, and concoctions that use all of these ingredients together... read more
