Tag Archives: Urban Farming

     Here in New Orleans there are many different kinds of housing, and people, and options.     There are cottages, and single family homes, doubles, triplexes, quadruples, apartments, condos, warehouses, and water flats.     The people that sleep in these places are just as diverse.     They are rich and poor, artists and bankers, […]

  • afterthekidsleave.com - Love this! Seriously, if I could live in an RV and make my own urban homestead…I’d definitely go for it! 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Sue - I agree, the mobile house with a porch and some chickens is brilliant! Now I know what to do when retirement day arrives. I will just go mobile like my phone. We have a plastic owl hanging in one of our trees to keep the birds away so they don’t dump on our driveway…it doesn’t always work. Some hawks circle above sometimes wanting to make little dog soup too. I need your neighbors fully-loaded for that.ReplyCancel

  • Tammy - Haaaa! Loved it! Those plastic owls aren’t fooling anyone of the feather species. However, they generally scare the crap out of me as I unsuspectingly walk along. I LOVE New Orleans (disclaimer: not in the summer!)and have family there. The peeps are hugely diverse but your neighbor takes the cake. Seriously, you have to laugh or you will cry. Cock-a-doodle-doo to you, my new cyber blogging friend – awesome post!ReplyCancel

  • Jean - I have always wanted to visit and now that desire has been renewed. We are moving, I wish I would have known about this RV idea prior. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • enchantedseashells.com - Hub has been in the south near your area for the past 6 weeks and can’t wait to get out of the heat and humidity!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Oh yea- it’s Hot & Humid in the summer, but the other 8 months of the year are HEAVENLY! ‘ll go up on The Fly and wave to him for you!ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - Sooner or later the hawk shall have his day!ReplyCancel

     My son Chase lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York, New York.     That’s a lot of address.     It’s a lot of city.     He knows I lovelovelove to garden, and cook, and talk, and eat, so he insisted we go visit the Smorgasburg Market at East River Street Park & N.7th at […]

  • Ruchira Khanna - wow…you sure got your element by visiting that place:)

    I would love to visit such places where fresh baked is the word 🙂

    Great post!ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - I’d skip the oysters (aversion to seafood), but that baking looks to die for!

    Focaccia is another of life’s great pleasures.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - I simply can not LIVE without Oysters! I would bathe in them if I could…. wait a minute. This might be possible.ReplyCancel

  • afterthekidsleave.com - It all looks delicious! Sounds like you had a great visit.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - We really did! Now the younger Princess Bryn will be coming our way and off to the beach we go (much better then grandmother’s house). Of course, I’ll post about that later. Jeez- us bloggers!ReplyCancel

  • Roshni - Eeps! Bacon cupcakes?! Everything else looks delicious though!ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - What? You think Bacon cupcakes are a bit over the top? Something that could kill you if you ate too many? Or at least slow you’re blood flow to the brain? Oh- I guess that’s why i love them. HahahahaReplyCancel

  • Ellen Dolgen - Everything in these pictures looks so delicious, especially that bread! I hope you had a wonderful time with your son.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - We did. So fun. I don’t spend enough time with any of my kids because they’re all over the country! That’s why i have so many fly miles!ReplyCancel

  • Sue - Tell your son he is so good to his mother. I like that. It all looks good to me especially the bread and cupcakes. I have not acquired a taste for Oysters. They don’t look appetizing to me, but there must be something about them because they are so well liked. Maybe someday.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - He is good to his mother. And as for the oyster aversion- you don’t know what you’re missing Sue. Really- I mean it.ReplyCancel

  • speakerjohnny - The freshly baked bread and the cupcakes look simply delicious!ReplyCancel

     I have a mutual arrangement with my itty-bitty courtyard garden- I choose certain species of fruits and vegetables, give them a good home, nurture them to maturity, enjoy their product, and, if they’ve behaved like good children, remember a part of them to share with the next generation (I save their seeds).    […]

     First of all, there’s no such thing as an ‘Ugly Tomato’. They are ALL beautiful- in fact, the weirder looking- the better.      Most of the tomatoes you find in the grocery are genetically altered to get bigger, faster, rounder,  redder, ship well, and…. sterile (when I say ‘sterile‘ I mean if you save the […]

     Farmer’s markets are not a new idea, but the recent interest in urban farming, and field-to-table products (that eliminate far-reaching distribution and secure a more organic product) are popping up everywhere!     Here in New Orleans there are several, but a new one (for me) is the Crescent City Farmers Market which I […]
