You can catch them along the waterfront, curtains of cutaway half-gallon containers filled with dirt and edible plants—broccoli, cabbage, fava bean, spearmint, jalapeno, Thai basil, tomato, and more. The plants are strung along Alaskan Way and they're fed by 10-gallon water jugs wedged into the trees.

According to a laminated placard hanging with the plants, the project was developed by Joanna Lepore and commissioned by the city's Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs. Go check them out. The whole setup is surprising and delightful and ingenious.

Thanks, Joanna!

I ate a tomato because it was ripe and there.
