Grow Your Own Food on the Upper East Side

As it is easy to see, the stalwart Bloomberg Administration has removed 64 Square Feet of sidewalk from our front 'yard'.  Why?  to foster Urban Agrarian Sustainability.  Land in such neighborhoods as this is difficult to acquire and even harder to till. The tenants simply have no proper farming equipment or decently appropriate clothes. Persistence, inch by hard-won inch, is needed by a dedicated cadre of hardy Volunteers.

See the bare places among the lettuce leaves in front of the two foot high tomatos? Behind the impatiens?  The competely organic salad pictured below is made from those exact missing leaves!  There is no actual point to the paper bag.
