In better news, CSA “Front Yard” is producing some beautiful things. Winter squash 2.0 (butter-your-nuts) has started popping out babies, so I think we’ll be good for thanksgiving.

Joda Cain is accused of murder in my home state of Oregon, and has literally jack shit to do with the Michael Brown murder in Ferguson, Missouri. THESE ARE NOT THE SAME PEOPLE.
