Cash crunch; healthy munch

I was a poet
and did not know it. (neither did anyone else, for that matter)

This past Monday while carpooling, I was listening to National Public Radio (NPR) wax manifest about the surge in home gardens, specifically organic gardening. People are still wanting to eat healthier and finding ways to do so, even as their food spending is constricted by rising fuel and grocery costs.

What a great solution a small home garden is to our situation! We have planted peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes. but I am seriously considering adding some lettuces and squash to our little cubicle Eden. We already are fairly successful and enjoy our herb garden.

So what do you think? Is this do-able? We just have some containers, nothing fancy. and I am hoping to spark some veggy interest in the kiddos.

Happy planting. and Healthy eating!
