I Had a Mystery Vegetable Garden in Jail and It Was Great

We weren't really permitted to plant, yet that didn't prevent us from doing it.

I used to be a vegetable runner. It's not how I got to jail, but rather it's what I did once I was there.

I wasn't the only one. The men with whom I worked in the garden on "China Slope" at California's Folsom Jail were there with me, consistently, holding up in line to get once more into the jail constructing and trusting the gatekeepers wouldn't find the vegetable stash they had emitted away in their attire.

In my left boot, somewhat crushed and painstakingly wrapped in a sandwich pack, was a solitary jalapeno pepper. In my privilege, packaged firmly and furthermore wrapped, were two or three dozen shoots of green onions.

Formally, we were exterior decorators. There were around 20 of us, and we had been doled out to the arranging group on the verdant glade inside the jail's dividers known as China Slope, spending our weekdays in what felt to us detainees like the wild.
