Raised Plant Bed in a Community Garden in San Francisco’s Mission District

No, not that kind of weed. After a string of disappointing romantic misadventures last fall, I came across this article in Modern Farmer magazine, profiled here in the New Yorker. Weed Dating. Yes, weeds of the invasive species variety. They may be a threat to the eco-system, and a scourge for farmers everywhere, but we can thank them for bringing  like-minded gardeners (or more likely urban-agriculture curious hipsters) together, whose hands may or may not discreetly touch over the custom raised plant beds.
