Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Urban Farm Tour Today!

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Yeehaw!  Today should be lots of fun.  Hopefully, it will make up for my losing last night's Ebay auction for a complete Hee-Haw DVD collection.  *sniff*

The CrankyPuppy gang is hitting the streets of Kansas City today on the first day of the Urban Farm tour.  J. and I will be joined by his sister-in-law, niece and nephew.  Should be a fun time!  If you're local and interested in joining the self-guided tour, tickets are $8.00 for an individual and $20.00 for a family.  To see a map and description of the farms that are participating, or for more info, just go here.

I'll be back with lots of cool pictures and ideas from some of these farmers later today.  That is, if we don't melt along the way.  

Stay tuned!


  1. I did this tour several years ago and learned a LOT... about urban farmers as well as urban farming. It was a hot day like today, too... and no one had thought about parking, so somewhat of a mess and a long walk to two stops... but well worth it.

  2. Ooohhh...I can't wait to see the pictures! I'm very nervous (and incredibly excited) to participate in our little Kitchen garden & Coop Tour this year! It will be a learning, for sure!
