A Time for New Gardens

There are more new vegetable gardens going in this year than there have been for decades, I would wager. The spiraling economy has guaranteed that those with eyes and ears (and good backs) are returning to the soil in some small fashion.

It's at least a gesture that whispers, "We will take back control."

It's been over 25 years since I last had a garden. So I've been reacquainting myself with the earthy knowledge required to nurture and harvest nutritional treasures.

MANY others in our neighborhood are also putting in new gardens. It's a movement, I tell you.
