This morning I forwarded the video that Jordan posted to my mom. I told her that I was inspired and wanted to do something like these people one day. I told her I wanted to be an urban farmer.
I think growing a garden like this in the back yard would be SOOO fulfilling for me:
She laughed at me and said I'd been living in Boulder too long.
I had to point out that it was her fresh spring pea beds that lured my best friend and I out to the garden in the middle of the night to pick and eat fresh produce by the light of our pink anodized maglites. We were in high school and giddy to eat their green little goodness right off the vine. It's her fault I love working in dirt and Barbra Kingslovers fault I want to grow veggies.
Living in Boulder has nothing to do with it. I promise.
It's probably a good thing I didn't mention my newest desire to raise chickens and start a bee colony....
