Brooklyn Farming: The Crops Are Ripening

These little beauties are ripening into yellow cherry tomatoes. We're growing plum tomatoes, string beans, peppers and a few other crops as well. Brooklyn actually has a great environment for farming (if you clean up that contaminated soil).

If you have a backyard or other outdoor space that might be good for farming but aren't really up to it, consider contacting BK Farmyards. BK Farmyards is a network that will grow organic vegetables in your yard or lot for sale to your neighbors. In exchange, they’ll give you a percentage of the crop for free.

There are about six plots currently being farmed, adding up to more than three acres. BK Farmyards is a finalist in the 2009 Buckminster Fuller Challenge.
