Politics & Veggies

Last week was all about politics - and a lesson for us about political campaigning in the US. The Democrats had their national convention, i.e. 4 days of speeches about themselves, essentially, which ended with a speech of Obama in a giant stadium:

Quite a change of scale, compared to the out-in-the-garden speeches of the Swiss politicians... Talking about garden: we are currently getting more food from our garden than we can eat, it's absolutely great. A typical day's yield would look something like this:

(OK, this was an exceptional day, but still... good old homegrown veggies keep us from eating greasy high fructose corn syrup industry products)

We've been hiking a lot lately, around the Santa Cruz Mountains and in Marin County just north of San Francisco. Although it's getting really dry (haven't seen rain for four months now), it's still spectacular, and we can't wait to see how it's gonna be in Spring when everything is lush and green and wet.
