Hobby Airport barely opened in time after the hurricane for Debbie to attend an Heirloom Seed Exposition in Santa Rosa, CA, sponsored by Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds and many other organizations committed to the production of safe foods and a sustainable environment. Three days of learning about the latest in organic food growing techniques, soil development, irrigation, pest management, edible gardens and other child-friendly gardening/learning strategies was informative, entertaining and — especially when the realities of food politics were being discussed — sometimes scary. Well worth the trip. (The goat in the lower right is a chalk drawing.)
