More Urban Farming at it's best. Ian Cheney and his so-called Truck Farm, is still surprised to get what he calls “a heck of a lot of food” (or about two shopping carts' worth of lettuce, arugula, cherry tomatoes, basil, and the like — but no root vegetables since the soil wasn’t deep enough). This year, he installed a greenhouse on the back of his 1986 Dodge and expects to get peas, okra, summer squash, and sage overwintered from last year. No parking tickets as of yet, although he says, "the only pest we’ve had is a friendly neighborhoods kid who loves parsley. He’s been decimating the parsley.” Nice.
