Since pretty much nothing is sexier these days than mucking around in soil, we present Food 52's new urban-farming column, City Dirt. Amy Pennington (who's also the author of the book Apartment Gardening) promises she'll offer projects for the home gardener every couple of weeks things like starting seeds and container growing. If that gets your heart pounding (we're looking at you, grow-your-own-tomatoes, DIY-pickling types), check out the inaugural edition. [Food 52]
