MyFarm: Let Someone Else Do the Gardening

MyFarm: Let Someone Else Do the Gardening

We've spent a lot of time this summer talking about gardening -- one-pot herb gardens, no-dig gardens, small backyard gardens...

But not everyone has a green thumb. Some people want those awesome garden-grown fruits and vegetables, but have no interest in doing the weeding or the watering.

Hey, it's nothing to be ashamed of -- we all have different interests. The good news is (if you live in the Bay Area), you can actually reap the benefits of an organic garden without doing the work. You'll have to pay though.

MyFarm is an urban farm that, rather than growing on some huge patch of land somewhere in Marin, grows in urban backyards all over the Bay Area. If you'd like them to grow in yours, installation is about $600 and maintenance is about $20/week. During the peak of the season, they'll leave a basket of produce on your doorstep once a week.

If you don't want the garden at all, but still want the veggies, they also have a CSA.
