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:

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

These are pretty funny-looking, too:

Artichokes!
