When I first started gardening in this place, I was surveying my four by ten raised bed of greens with pride one afternoon. “You really are a farmer, not a gardener,” a friend observed. I nodded. Every year, I am more aware of my fate. Here are some signs that you, too, may be an urban farmer, not a gardener.

1. You find dried bean seeds and straw in your pockets.

2. You use the roof of your van to harvest the apples and plums from the high branches.

3. You turn to binder twine and five gallon buckets rather than organic hemp twine and a trug.

4.You talk compost with strangers.
