Joyce Takahashi of Miki Macs is getting excited about the signs of life taking place at Living Foods (especially The Lanai, where Matthew Duncan was re-doing some of the tables that have been idle for more than a year), and Mr. Linn of Linn Farms is trying to figure out how to get pollinators into the greenhouse for all those flowering cucumber plants.
