Someday, I’ll try your corn maize, Dixon:

Dixon residents Matt and Mark Cooley, owners of Cool Patch Pumpkins, currently hold the Guinness World Record for “largest maze, temporary corn/crop maze”. The maze measured 163,853.83 m² or 40.489 acres.[18] In 2012, Cool Patch Pumpkins broke its own record with a 53-acre maze.[19] In 2014 Cool Patch Pumpkins again broke its own record by growing a 60-acre maze.[20]

I’m srsly.

It Takes a Village, Apparently, to Hand Out Corn Tortilla Chips to Homeless People on Market Street

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

Were there two groups of youth handing out boxes of chips and whatnot on Market Street last night? Like more than a hundred souls?

Seemed that way.

I suspect that one of the groups, at least, was Christian.

It’s a mystery.

Anyway, they outnumbered the recipients by about ten to one, AFAICS…

San Francisco’s Victory Garden Coming Along Nicely

Wednesday, August 13th, 2008

Things are speeding up at Slow Food Nation ’08 in San Francisco.  After fighting the worm wars, it’s nice to sit back and spend $500 to eat some celebrity chef food under the rotunda of City Hall. It’s the Victory Garden Celebration Dinner on August 24:

District Attorney Kamala Harris, Peter Coyote, Thomas Keller and Alice Waters invite you to celebrate the Victory Garden on Civic Center Plaza. We’ll gather in the garden, share a meal prepared by Chez Panisse, and plant the seeds of victory at San Francisco City Hall.

Or just get a table for $10k and invite a few friends to have some paella, your choice.

Blue corn as high as a elephant’s eye, and it looks like it’s climbing clear up to the sky: 


See you there!

“The Slow Food Nation Victory Garden, planted by a coalition of volunteers including Mayor Gavin Newsom and Alice Waters, is an edible garden on the Civic Center Plaza. Planted on the same site as the post World War II Victory Gardens 60 years ago, the Victory Garden represents the values of sustainability, community and stewardship of the land, while producing high quality food for people in need.”
