I have finished 5 out of the 7 heirloom plushies for Chicago's 12 at the Garfield Park Conservatory. The Ruby Red Chard and Blue Hopi Corn are almost done as well. The plushies are a Zapotec Pleated Tomato, Moon and Stars Watermelon, Purple Cape Cauliflower, Make the Daughter-In-Law Cry Potato and a Parisian Carrot!
Now on to the next piece! I have bought all the scrap wood I could need and tomorrow I will start building with help from my Dad.
Special thanks to Andy for giving me this base that he found in the alley a while back!
I made Arugula Pesto with Summer Squash! Super yummy and raw! All the veggies are from my CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) work share. I work on Nick and Becky's Farm, Midnight Sun Farm, every other Friday and in return I get a 1/2 share of fresh, organic veggies each Sunday!
