The picture of the lettuce is to show the unique (and ingenious) way they raise and sell their leaf lettuce. The little pot you see at the base has the roots to the plant. They simply plant the seeds in a little peat pot, grow the lettuce, then when it's ready to sell, they wrap cellophane around the whole thing and that's how we see it at the stores. The lettuce is very fresh and green, as you can see.
Here we go again--guess which comment matches which picture! One of these days I'll figure out how to do this right. The picture of the Seagull at the dump and the picture of the dump go together. We hadn't ever seen a seagull up close so I took a picture. The dumpsters (there are probably up to 10 of them) are located away from the domes (fortunately we are quite a ways from them). There are seagulls and crows around them, as well as people sometimes rummaging through them.
