I was really looking forward to getting started early on some summer crops, things seemed to be going well. Then the frost hit, leaving in it’s wake devastated basil and tomato seedlings. There’s no recovering from that. Seeded two more flats, along with another round of tomatoes.
I have used this configuration for years as a way of cutting lettuce, bunching greens, and harvesting broccoli.
“A man is a fool not to put everything he has, at any given moment, into what he is creating. You’re there now doing the thing on paper. You’re not killing the goose, you’re just producing an egg. So I don’t worry about inspiration, or anything like that. It’s a matter of just sitting down and working. I have never had the problem of a writing block. I’ve heard about it. I’ve felt reluctant to write on some days, for whole weeks, or sometimes even longer. I’d much rather go fishing, for example, or go sharpen pencils, or go swimming, or what not. But, later, coming back and reading what I have produced, I am unable to detect the difference between what came easily and when I had to sit down and say, ‘Well, now it’s writing time and now I’ll write.’ There’s no difference on paper between the two.”
Farmer Miguel spinning it dry. Special tables were built with plastic mesh to allow the greens to drip dry a bit as it’s sorted.
Visiting the garden at San Gabriel High School with it’s primary catalyst Jesse Chang of Kingdom Causes. Very beautiful garden, lots of wonderful inspiration here. Great work.
