We were blessed for most of the past week with the presence of two two-syllable vistors - Kara and Eva, first time WWOOFers from Portland. They were amazing, transforming a weedy quarter-acre into an ordered plot of nicely-strung hops and helping out in various other ways. They got a taste of all things Kingbird - the politics (a fundraiser hosted here for Congressional candidate Ami Bera), the food-ism (a potluck pizza party for Slow Food Sacramento), the nature (a good outing on the Cosumnes River Preserve and over-flight of the neighborhood), and the dirt. Nice energy, and a surprising (at least from this grizzled perspective!) level of maturity and self-knowledge for 20-year-olds.
