Job Corps garden on Treasure Island

I did a volunteer day thing at work last week, and we went to Treasure Island to help out Job Corps, a federal gov't vocational training program for 16- to 24-year-olds. The best part was pulling a carrot right out of the dirt! Here's the carrot in the dirt:

Here's a video of me pulling it out of the dirt and pretending to eat it right away:

And here I am actually eating it after washing it off:

What's up, doc?

"What's up, Doc?"

I also learned a few things, like how asparagus is a lot like bamboo shoots:

Fully grown, it becomes leafy!

These are pretty funny-looking, too:

Artichokes!

I don't think any other wedding I attend could live up to this. :P

Those are just a few of the photos, btw. See the full set of 20 photos here.
