How many books must a man buy a girl before they may date and live happily ever after?

Got it? Good. 

My extremely talented coworker Amanda photoshopped our children’s librarians to look like American Girl dolls and I have been laughing about it ever since.

Scenes from our seed saving workshop last night. 

You would probably think that to save seeds from a tomato all you have to do is remove the seeds and dry them but IN FACT it is a lot easier if you let them ferment in the tomato pulp for a few days in the fridge. This removes the gelatinous shell around the seed.

Librarian mohawks – makes you do a double take, right? Those are two words that usually do NOT go together.

But thanks to Vista, now they do, as five good-natured librarians made good on their promise this spring and got mohawks because the community pushed them to a big milestone – Vista was the first county library to make it over the 1-million check-out mark.

That means the community checked out more than 1 million books, DVD’s and CDs over the course of the fiscal year, which ended June 30.

Do you dare to take the librarian mohawk challenge?

I dare.

Darien Library Cooks
All season long, we’ll be featuring recipes and stories submitted by our CSA members. For this installment, we have Erin.

We have so much squash in our farm share and I’m told we’ll only be getting more this Wednesday. So, I made this pasta and fried zucchini salad from smitten. I feel like my CSA theme this summer has been “let’s take these healthy vegetables and find a way to make them unhealthy.” Game on.
