A truck grows in Sacramento

MAKE Editor and Publisher Dale Dougherty writes from the California State Fair:

Here is one of my favorite sights, a “green” truck in the Farm area. It’s an old truck covered in grass with vegetables and flowers growing in the flat bed. Talk about a raised bed! Think how the yards of rural America could be transformed once rusty wrecks become warm and fuzzy, like something out of a Pixar movie.
