My Papa came from Arkansas along with nine siblings. In the late 1940’s he moved us to 80 acres near a farm-town, Elmira (pop. 189), California. He dry-farmed and raised cattle. I raised a few calves, sheep, rabbits, pigeons, ducks, turkeys and guinea hens. We butchered stock, hunted for the table and bought our produce at Fry's Store in town.. For twenty-five years we had a large vegetable garden at our home above Little Skookum Inlet, off of Puget Sound. We canned, froze and smoked our La Push, line-caught, tuna and sea bass every summer. Now my garden has shrunk to a few pots (one lonely tomato bush, a few herbs and a rainbow of five flowers) on the 3' x 5' deck at my tiny 5th floor apartment. Are there edible fish in Lake Union?
