Hello BFF’ers: I need to fix a few things with the WordPress theme for this site, so in the meantime you can work around the issues as follows:
1) The link to “Add a comment” isn’t displaying beside posts on the main page. You can still get to the individual page for that post where the comment box is displayed and therefore you can still comment. All you need to do is click on the title of the post (the larger text above the horizontal line that begins each post) – it is a link to the page where you can enter your comment (and read comments by others).
2) The author of the post isn’t being displayed.
3) The date of the post isn’t being displayed.
To resolve issues #2 & #3, please conclude any new posts you make (until I fix the issues) with your name and the date and time of your post, like I have done here.
Please keep in mind for our next meeting: I have obtained a $200 “grant” (aka donation) from an anonymous source and would like everyone to plan on discussing at the next meeting what we should spend it on. We already discussed this a bit at the last meeting and there was talk of improving our irrigation system and also of doing water testing at the Woodberry Garden. Let’s prepare our thoughts for this discussion on Wednesday and try to come up with a plan for the most effective way to spend this new windfall of funding.
Hey, it’s going to be at least 100 million degrees on Saturday, so I think we should build a solar oven tomorrow night and then cook lunch outdoors at the garden with it. I am trying to pick a design that we can build easy and cheap and quick, and there are lots to choose from at SolarCooking.org. Check them out – if anyone wants to get in on this, let me know by commenting here. I would probably want to do this at the warehouse so we’ll be able to build a large one (if we choose to) and not have to be concerned with transporting it.
The episode featuring Farm City author Novella Carpenter isn’t up on the show’s website anymore, but I e-mailed Dan Rodricks to ask if he would give me the link to download it. I’ll post it here if I hear back from him.
Update: I found the link to the Novella Carpenter episode of Midday after all. You can download it here – it’s really fascinating to hear about her experience in building an urban farm in Oakland, California.
