We are connected with all living things in ways we do not quite comprehend and our behaviours may well backfire on us.

Senegal’s Planting program. Check out their Website.
Working with my Advance Tech class trying to promote the Biogarden Project with Adobe Indesign.
Good results from out planting already a week later and we are seeing some progress.
Lets see what will grow faster.
How to prepare a sweet potato for planting!
Yes! Just fill a cup with water, pierce the potato/yam with a skewer or toothpicks so that you can rest them on top of the cup with half the potato in the water. You can also cut your potatoes, for more starts. However this exposes the plant to disease and also shocks them so that they take longer to sprout. (You can cure cut potatoes and put them directly in the ground, but I would keep it cautious and do the water if cutting.)
Once your potato has some leaves, you just twist off the shoots where they meet the tuber and put them in their own cup of water to root. When the roots are about 1” long, they’re ready to plant.
(oh. Now I see there is a teeny link when you expand the photo. I guess now you have my version, too ;)
Nearly a month after getting back from the market in Santa Monica, I still have vivid flashbacks of the produce. It is completely unlike any other market I’ve seen in the this country. It’s massive - three full downtown city blocks closed off for the market on Wednesday. And there is a robust wholesale business happening along with the normal customers. Restaurants and distributors show up with trucks, vans and carts to load up with the highest quality and cheapest organic produce I’ve seen. My heart remains true to Union Square, but now I have a real vision of what we might one day become.
Can’t wait for summer!
tis the summer season ♥
