Beets grown by local urban high school students, in the community garden, and sold at the farmer’s market.
I talked to them a bit about what they did and it was so cool to hear them talk about gardening and what they learned. Such nice, polite, friendly kids who didn’t seem to mind getting up early on a Saturday to go sit under a tent in the hot sun and talk to me about what they do.
Perhaps I am jaded by the daily sight of obnoxious college students who cannot seem to get out of their pajamas by 11am and have their head inches from their phone at all times, while smoking cigarettes leaning against posts with signs that say “no smoking,” but it’s nice to see people being good people.
Whoa Jess, get on that rockin’ chair on the porch and tell em’ to get off your lawn while you’re at it.
