Hey Y'all!

I'm sorry it's been so long. I have been very busy in the last couple weeks, with school, work, school, musical auditions, school, college applications, and reading Hamlet.... for school. Yes, this is the life.

While reading the food article posted by Chris a thought struck me. Organic food is tasty, more so perhaps than .... other food with the sense of well being it gives you being even better, knowing you are both helping the environment and avoiding those nasty chemicals. And local organic food is even better, as Chris said: reducing the "giant carbon footprint"... and how more local can you get than your own back yard? (Or front yard, side yard, patio... etc.)

Of course, you say, it is nearly Winter and what silly person tries to grow anything in the snow/wet/cold? It is much easier to drive down to the national chain superstore a few miles away. Of course it is! But we are not doing this for easy: We are doing this for change.

That being said, feel free to check out this website devoted to gardening in the fall and winter.

And for those of you who are still unwilling to get down on your knees in the snow and freeze your hands off for the sake of a few carrots (and believe me, I understand!), check out this introduction to planter gardening in winter.

Happy Gardening! ~Larkin
