Chinese New Year: Boon for Farmer?


Sunday after Chinese New Year in Oakland’s Chinatown. Billy and I trolled around for weird Chinese ice cream. He got a banana smoothie, I was tempted to try the red bean tapioca pearl but chickened out and got the hot cocoa with pearls. As we wandered around the desolate streets, as urban farmers, something caught our attention: boxes and boxes of greens. Bok choy, mustard greens, and only slightly messed up Asian Pears. We exercised restraint and only took two big boxes. This morning I dumped a whole box in the chicken area and they got very excited. The bunnies got more bok choy than they could eat in one, er, sitting. It may be the year of the pig, but these animals made out!
