Shu Lea!

This is such a wonderful and perfect way to begin to wind down this month's topic!

Lest we forget that without compost, there are no nutrients, there is no soil, there is no food.

It is Spring here in NYC. And so the garlic I planted in my community garden is pushing its way out of the soil. I hope you'd be pleased to know that the garlic that I planted in the soil around trees along my street (guerrilla style) is similarly pushing through the soil. I wonder when people might realize it is there for the taking (and eating) for anyone who passes by.

May our data here on this list prove to also be useful compost in the net, and may artists continue to insert dirt into the machine. As Graham Harwood has been known to say: "Now is the Time for Filth". I think that is still true.
