I'm not sure how we missed this mind-expanding article on hipster gardens in today's NYT. Oh right — we haven't really been reading the paper. Too many words. But, according to one hepcat gardener, "I'm thinking about gardening as a radical political act."

Wow. Clap Clap Blog responds, "Of course you are. Me, I'm thinking about pooping my pants as a radical political act. It really threatens people's assumptions about hygene and resource redistribution and the sacridity of the body. You know." They also point out: "no one mentions the real reasons they started 'a hydroponic garden.'"
