Some Much Needed Updates (Part 1)

It has been a crazy couple weeks. I was in San Francisco for work and then we were in New Orleans for Sam's ironman race. The garden and yard are becoming overgrown. Here is the first post to catch up.
I had never been to San Francisco before. Although it was cool and rainy most of the time, I did get a few good pictures. Looking towards Golden Gate bridge.
and to Alcatraz
Lombard the crooked street.
Haight Ashbury was pretty quiet.
The Japanese garden at Golden Gate park is amazing. It is probably the best Japanese garden in the country.
I went in the middle of a downpour, so there wasn't anyone else around.
San Francisco was the first city in the country to pilot compost bins. They looked like people were using the program.
There were lots of urban gardens all over the city including a few larger gardens for the homeless shelters.
All in all San Francisco is pretty cool. The people, neighborhoods, and food are something to see.

Need pictures of the garden! I built my own four 4'x10' raised beds after seeing yours.
Thanks!
