Urban Farming

When people think of the East Village, they don't usually think about farming. All that's about to change!

This past July, I saw this corn, that had been planted beside a tree sapling, on East 9th Street:


Either they didn't plant it early enough, or they didn't fertilize it sufficiently, because it's pretty short for a corn plant in July!

This past weekend, I passed by again, on my way to the 9th Street Block Party. Most were gone, but the one remaining plant looked like it should, for mid-September.

Looking like it should.

Urban farming is the way of the future… in the East Village Today!
