One of the most memorable things he said–aside from the fact that 70 percent of Americans don’t know what they’re having for dinner at 4 p.m.–and demonstrated was his enthusiasm for turning all unused space into gardens and farms, like in Italy, where one drives down the autostrade and sees rows of tomatoes. Here is Mehmet Bolat at USA Fuel Serve in Westhampton Beach with his tomatoes, squash and corn plants tucked underneath the sign advertising gas prices. Salatin would be proud.
