Above is Norah's own little garden that she takes care of. She planted a potato to see what would happen, and in the middle you'll see her potato plant.
The book also gives great ideas for ways to grow food even if you don't have a yard. Just one little balcony box or pot can really grow a substantial amount of food! I think it's so important that we all learn to grow something. Even if it's just herbs on a windowsill, or a pot of Tiny Tim's. We've all become far too dependent on our oil-based food industry, and expect that those trucks will always deliver food to our grocery stores, just in the nick of time. It's time we took back some of our food independence. Plus, nothing beats eating a salad from fresh lettuce and other veggies that were picked only moments before... soooo nutritious and delicious!
So what's in your garden? Do you have one? How long have you been gardening? Have you thought about it, but just not gotten around to acting on it? Can you grow one thing, anything? I'd love to hear about it and see your pictures!
