The New York Times is treading on our territory, reporting on the efforts of one Gary Paul Nabhan, a man with a plan to save out-of-the-ordinary plants and animals in danger of disappearing from dinner plates everywhere. In retaliation, I stole their dreamy photo of moon and stars watermelon (above).
Thanks to my brother Stephen for tipping me off to the article. He writes, "Moon and stars watermelon? Near-extinct vegetables and fruits that are saved by people eating more of them? Sounds like a case for Weird Vegetables." Totally.
The article, "To Save a Species, Serve it for Dinner," is here.
