Food, where it comes from, how we eat it, and why we love it.

One of my dreams came true in Bogota! I got to play in "Silver Clouds!" It´s a way-too-entertaining Andy Warhol instalation piece, consisting of huge, rectangular, silver helium-filled balloons- and you actually get to go in and play with them!
The Curly Top saga continues; only it's no longer Curly Top.
The CSU extension office experienced similar symptoms and pulled many of their plants as well. Testing, though, came back negative for Curly Top and there was speculation of a combination of 4 different mites and possibly viruses. Recently though, it has come to our attention that all of our heartbreak may be due to pesticides. The ranch our farm is located on does hand-spraying for thistle, and the pesticides may have been blown onto our our unsuspecting outdoor crops. So as we question land-rights, chemical use, and the future of food in general, we do our best not to feel hopeless.

Huge sandwitch at my favorite veggie place in La Paz!
Similar to Empanandas, with whole hard-boiled eggs, and tons of sauces and spices at the cart.

Hot Dog Buns!
We live next to a hot dog bun factory, and it smells delicious!
Oh yeah, we love our food!
