Two articles caught the attention of my Porcher sensibilities today. The first was a piece in the New York Times on urban gardening:

Kerry Trueman and Matt Rosenberg began by growing tomatoes on the roof of their third-floor walk-up in the West Village more than 20 years ago.

The article goes on to describe the pair’s efforts in urban gardening. My favorite quote comes from the end of the story:

“We can never grow all our own food in the city, but even getting people connected to one window box connects them to the natural world.”

The second article was actually a podcast from The Week critiquing a wrong understanding of liberty. I thought the nine-minute segment was interesting–you can find it here.
