No.8 You know you’re an urban farmer

when you receive precious and thoughtful gifts like these.

A coriander spice grinder, from a special friend who not only spent several hours helping me harvest almost 2 quarts full of dried coriander seeds, but also came up with this genius way to have fresh coriander at the ready whenever I want it! So fantastic, right?

A precious origami hen, rooster, and chick in a nest, who we decided to name “Goldie,” thanks to one student’s suggestion.

Eight pounds of Italian plums from a friend who knew I would appreciate helping her out with her plum abundance. They’re in my dehydrator as I write this.

Yes, that’s how you know you’re an urban farmer. And I am grateful!

    That looks an awful lot like grinder that sea salt comes in from Trader Joe’s. I’ve never thought to use the empty grinder for other spices. We already have a great pepper mill and a perfectly good electric spice grinder, but I tend to be lazy and just use pre-ground spices when I’m in a hurry. This idea is great and will let me fresh-grind a bit without having to clean out the big grinder. You’ve got a smart friend there.
