Well, as you can tell by the increasingly infrequent postings, LA Farm Girl has been so busy she hasn't had much time to blog, let alone "farm."
But, busy or not, this has to change since my dear hubby installed a beautiful vegetable garden for me, complete with a fence (to keep the doggie out) and raised beds. This is a photo of the completed area.
So, since I was not prepared for this, I didn't buy plants, set seeds or anything. Luckily for me, I can still get some of my favorite heirloom tomatoes and plant them now. This is because Laurel of Laurel's Heirloom Tomato Plants, http://heirloomtomatoplants.com/ is having an on-site sale this Sunday at her urban "farm."
Who is Laurel you might ask? Well, she has been growing and selling her heirlooms for the past 9 years, but she comes from a long line of city farmers, her family farmed in Lomita and she still lives there where she is raising her tomatoes.
As she says on her site, "We are your year-round Southern California source for more than 160 luscious varieties of strictly organically grown heirloom tomato plants, a few carefully chosen great-tasting hybrids, plus a fine selection of gardening products for your home garden, and for growing in containers and greenhouses."
I have planted her tomatoes in my garden before and can attest to how great they are. Plus, she runs the business along with her Mom and her sisters so it's a great way to support a local urban family farm.
