Millions of peaches, peaches for me!

May 10, 2008 • Karen

I walked out back to the Scripps garden to see if I might transplant my balcony rosemary and basil plants there before I graduate. It's nice and chaotically leafy back there. And that's when I discovered that the peach tree in the garden had actual fruit on it! I took a peach down and tried it--mmmmm.

So here's a PSA: free organic/free-range/vegan/whatever-the-hell peaches behind Browning! Go eat some so they don't go to waste. :)

One of the Core II's this year was about food--where it comes from, how it's made, etc etc. Basically The Omnivore's Dilemma as a class. (Why didn't we have such awesome Core IIs in my day??) Some of the students for their final project mapped out all the edibles growing on Scripps' campus and posted it in the Motley. There's a surprising number of plants and fruit trees growing here--a bunch I didn't even know about! I'll have to get a picture of the posterboard and post it.
