That’s NPR’s headline, not mine. My husband switched the radio on yesterday morning just in time for me to hear this story about Amy Goldman, who as I’m sure you know is an author, artist, and heirloom seed advocate. We’ve written about her incredible bronze casts of heirloom vegetables here, and a squabble over seeds here, and her recent nuptials to a person involved in said squabbles here. You may also know her beautiful books The Heirloom Tomato and The Compleat Squash. And New York gardeners know that her family has supported botanical gardens–including NYBG and BBG.
And now she’s on NPR for contributing to left-leaning superPACs, as part of a series profiling people who do such things. So–well–I’m glad to hear that heirloom vegetable gardeners are getting heard in the political process, somewhere, somehow.
If any other squash or tomato-related news arises during the campaign, you can be sure we’ll stay on top of it!Posted by Garden Rant on August 15, 2012 at 3:57 am, in the category Unusually Clever People.
