Kick start your day with a good breakfast

Seed to Sidewalk

on September 7, 2013

This is a little digression from breakfast, but it’s still about fresh, good food. The New York Times ran an article about my home town of Chicago (just to prove my bona fides, here I am on the shores of Lake Michigan).

“A Church in Chicago Sees Justice In Land’s Bounty” by Samuel G. Freedman shows how one pastor’s family feeds his flock and the ways his care ripples out to touch many lives. This’ll make you feel good about humanity, for a change.

Further on the subject of urban farming… the other morning, I spotted this squash on First Avenue at East 70th Street.

By the time I got back to take a better snapshot, the squash had been snapped off. I captured its blossoms in living color, as well as a bush of basil (fertilized by dried tobacco, courtesy of Marlboro). Amazing what Mother Nature can do!

Oh, and that morning glory I was wondering about…?

Glorious!
