Sharecropper Week 10
Purple Bean... isn't that a Prince song? "I only wanted 2 see u under the purple bean..."
Has it been ten weeks already? This week I was interviewed for a documentary on the project, about which you can find more here. Upcoming in September will be a harvest festival for all the parcel-donors/keepers/sharecroppers.
Speaking of harvest festivals, Lefferts House, also a Sharecropper site, and location of the Three Sisters Garden, is having one 9/12.
The Friday night before that, 9/11, is the Cricket Crawl, an overnight aural/geographical survey of crickets and katydids living in the five boroughs. I never heard a true katydid until last year, under the Palisades.
