Stolen In Red Hook: Solanum Quitoense

I honestly do not know where to start with this item (which I found on Union Street this afternoon) so I will leave you with these three points:

  1. The amount of detail in this flier is truly astonishing. I am particularly impressed with the description of the flavor of the fruit this plant life bears and the photograph of the glove found at the scene of the crime. I won’t even go into the root knot nematodes (because until today I had no idea what they are, much less the fact they existed).
  2. “the pimple whisperer” = brilliant
  3. “hew-haw” = just made into my vocabulary
  4. Okay that makes four points. In any case I sincerely hope Emma (AKA: “the pimple whisperer”) gets her Solanum Quitoense back— and soon!

This (which hails from Ferdinando’s Focacceria on Union Street) was one of the many interesting sights from my stint as amateur tour guide today in Carroll Gardens and Red Hook— and the operative word is “amateur”. The end result of my decision not to bring along a map was the people in my charge visiting such scenic points of interest as Ikea and the Red Hook Houses. They were polite enough not to complain— or they enjoyed it. It was too hard to tell. In any case, we had a fun time overall and you can anticipate a mini slide show of highlights from our meanderings in a bit!
