Hello from the brand new FarmTina spot! Holycrapimsoexcited.
It's been a long process, but I've successfully moved the location of FarmTina from a paved back alley in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn where I lived for 2 years, to an almost-real-backyard 20 minutes north in Bushwick, Brooklyn to another rental apartment.
My new yard is "almost real" because although it is still a tiny space surrounded by tall buildings, the yard is only halfway paved. Which means the other half is SOIL! True earthy soil, where I can plant my garden directly in the ground! This is mind blowing.
Next season I'll continue to explore container gardening in my city space, but I'll also be learning old fashioned in-ground gardening for the first time. I'm very excited! Read on for photos of the new space...
