4th of July fiesta - beans and reusables!

A few posts back, Marcus mentioned a food inventory, and suggested that some belt tightening might be in order. Not sure I believe him after seeing this photo.....


JUNK has some big 4th of July plans, including BEANS, cabbage flowers, and reusables. Sounds like a blast, anyone want to join?

"We will celebrate with beans. Maybe a chunk of cheddar mixed in. To tide us over till the big feast, I tore leaves off one of our few remaining heads of cabbage for an afternoon snack. I noticed something strange in the middle – a flower. I’ve never seen one before in cabbage - reminds us of terrestrial life....


As you plan for your picnic, we suggest reusables at the table. Things like real silverware, plates and napkins. The throwaway disposable stuff never goes “away” - we’re finding it here in the ocean. Two days ago I watched a bottle cap float by. Perhaps long ago, on some past 4th of July, someone dropped that bottle cap. Years and miles later, it’s here.

Coming up: How Joel's new FRANKENSAIL helps JUNK pick up a knot of speed.

Joel and Marcus, the journey of a lifetime.
I have know Joel for a number of years going back to Hawaii> I was there when he bought his first sailboat and help with a shakedown sail. This is a truely admirable, raisinng the awarness of how poorly we treat mother ocean. Aloha fair winds and following seas will be there
