More On the National Heirloom Exposition

Squash tower at the National Heirloom Exposition

Quite honestly, between the lead and zinc in our soil and an endless heat wave that seems to portend climactic disaster, I’ve been a bit dispirited with our little urban homestead project this summer.

The Heirloom Exposition up in Santa Rosa lifted me out of my petty depression. The amazing speakers, exhibits and vendors, left me inspired and ready to get back to work.

This week I thought I would report on some of the many talks I attended as well as share links to interesting projects and products that I saw at the expo.

  1. Was at the exposition too… forgot to ask them- can I take home a squash and melon? they seemed to be laying around everywhere in abundance…

  2. This heat wave is killing me – and all but my cucumbers. Unfortunately, I’m in the valley, so it’s even worse out here. Gah!
