Inspired by the Statesman’s video of Springdale Farm’s produce art, I decided to drag my boyfriend to the farm’s Saturday market this weekend. It was a little hard to find  we originally passed it and got a little lost on all the one-way streets in the area  but when we finally got there and figured out where to park, I was impressed. There was an amazing variety of products, including fresh vegetables, jams and eggs, and they were all arranged beautifully.

After we bought eggs (incredibly pricey eggs — $7 for a dozen!), we walked around the farm and looked at their chickens, which I wanted to steal because they were so cute. The grounds were surprisingly peaceful and beautiful for a farm in the middle of the city. I would definitely recommend a visit if you’re interested in urban farms and farmers markets.

Weekly roundup 07.18.14

From us:

Associated Press

A Malaysian Airlines plane was shot down over Ukraine on Thursday, killing 298 people. We have a special section that compiles different articles about the crash so you can get all your information about it in one place. A print version of this section is in the digital replica for subscribers.

Greg Kelley, a former Leander High School football player convicted of molesting a child at a daycare, accepted a plea deal that means he will serve 25 years in prison and give up his right to appeal.

In some uplifting news, Austin was named America’s best city for dogs. You can be a hero and adopt your own dog this weekend because the Williamson County Animal Shelter is hosting a free adoption event on Saturday.

From the rest of the internet:

Some more great reporting on the Ukraine plane crash crisis: FAA bans U.S. flight routes over region, one of the top AIDS researchers dies in crash.

A strangely compelling reason to care about our impact on the environment: Icelanders grieve for the peculiar lake balls.

Because comic and video game creators have been getting flack for not having many female leads, Marvel has decided to make Thor into a woman. Why make a new, independent female character when you can just change a male superhero’s gender?

No explanation necessary: Man breaks into Kennedy compound looking for Katy Perry.

A free roof on an Arlington home where a fire killed a toddler helps with healing.

This Fort Worth mortuary story just gets weirder and weirder. Eight bodies were found inside an abandoned mortuary earlier this week, and now a co-owner has been arrested for allegedly abusing the bodies.

A memorial service was held for Marine veteran Joseph Jackson Gwatney, who died at Seton Williamson and whose body went unclaimed because he had no family and no money. Staff raised funds for a full military memorial.

The future of University of Texas-owned acreage along Lady Bird Lake and Lake Austin Boulevard hasn’t been on its governing board’s radar despite a red-hot real estate market. 
The property, which is likely worth several hundred million dollars, was donated to the university in 1910 by George W. Brackenridge, a banker and regent who wanted it to become the main campus, a plan that never came to fruition. http://atxne.ws/1oBQwnR
