Not far from where I shot yesterday's photos is Muir Beach -- my starting point for a pleasant walk up Green Gulch towards the carefully tended gardens of the Zen Center.

Above, an artful display of Thistles (a.k.a. Teasels) that follow the Green Gulch trail.

These two fellows are devotees of Zen Buddhism -- that's David on the left but I didn't get the other guy's name. I assume they work for free, but they were carefully and cheerfully going about harvesting a row of greens.

Green Gulch Farm is a source of income for the Zen Center -- excess produce is sold by Marin Organic at local farmer's markets.

Oh, I'm afraid I wouldn't last long as a reporter down at the local newspaper if I came back without all the facts -- and I haven't done my research so I can't tell you with certainty what type of green this is -- maybe it's Butter Lettuce, maybe it isn't -- maybe someone knows.

Extra points if you can name all four, although I think #1 and #3 are the same.

Love the salad greens but don't know what they are called.
the thistles are stunning too.
Sure looking forward to some down time after last time tomorrow of Breakaway. Fun but exhausting.
