GREEN RECESSION GARDENS?

Evidently, others are now finding out what Green Readers have known all along: planting a garden not only produces great, fresh produce, but is economical, too.

USA Today reported Friday that veggie seeds are experiencing all time record sales. 'When the economy goes down, food gardening goes up,' said a spokesman from the National Gardening Association.

One woman in Tallahassee recently said she wanted to turn her entire front yard into a vegetable garden. Go for it! If the neighbor's complain, bribe them with fresh tomatoes and offer to give them tips so they can do the same thing to their yard. The energy saved from mowing grass can well be spent on staking some heirlooms.
