Sunrise 5:47: The 'farm' is thriving

Cassie and the female Dawn Jogger continued their recent Sunday tradition of exploring some detours adjacent to their regular route to Lake Lagunita and back. Before the old path was closed to make way for the Stanford practice golf course, it was easy to see and follow the progress of the various plots being cultivated at the Stanford Community Farm. Now it's hidden behind the mounds of dirt. New access is at the end of long driveway behind the university's co-generation facility. It was good to see so many of the plots thriving - some planted with vegetables, others with flowers. One 'farmer' had installed a plastic - but realistic looking - eagle as a scarecrow to deter smaller birds and ground squirrels. Waiting now for John and Julie and a little Father's Day festivity...
