Silver Lake pick-up
Here's what Farmer John had for us at the Silver Lake pick-up this week:
Baby Bok Choi
Green Chard (Nicola's from New Zealand and she calls them Silverbeets)
Red Oak Lettuce
Thyme & Oregano
Since the May 25 hearing and our victory at the Planning Commission, my neighbor Frank, who came to the hearing to protest against the Food & Flowers Freedom Act, is still taking photographs of me. Joy! Here he is snapping me in my driveway today at about 7:45pm. I thought to get my iphone out and snap him snapping me.
I remember Frank once telling me that he has a relative who works at the City Attorney's office. I wonder why Frank continues with his camera.
The next hearing for the F&FFA is due to take place on a Friday soon at City Council. It has been postponed a couple of times. Check in at www.urbanfarmingadvocates.org for news on when the next hearing will take place.
Have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day!
