Does anyone here know where those metal sheets came from and why they are used?
(Yes, there is a story there.)
Can you identify these plants?

Update: (7/8/2007) The SJ-R featured Humphrey's Market in the July 5, 2007 edition of the Springfield Business News. Humphrey's is planning on opening a pizza restaurant at the former Mr. Fresh's on S. 15th street. I hear the scheduled date for the grand opening is in September.
Quote from the publication "Pizza will be made from scratch and cooked in stone ovens. The pizza recipe will be a "little bit Chicago, a little bit New York and a little us - Springfield" Henry Jr. explains. There will also be pasta, salad, sandwiches and dessert."
(article available until next issue is published)
I hope they offer stuffed pizza and also whole wheat crust.
Update October, 2007.
