Neither of my thumbs are green, so this is going to be quite the learning experience for me. After doing a fair bit of research I'll be doing the Square Foot Gardening method which I think will work out great given the space I have available. Wish me luck!

Are they in the public domain? I have tried looking around, but must not be finding the right sites. Out here in Cali it is time to start the tomato seeds. Spring is coming, so the chickens went back in their pen last night so that the new plants coming up could recover. They were not happy this morning.

The movement would seem to fit in well with either McCain's (with his war focus) or Obama's (with his ability to inspire individual action) campaigns.<br/><br/>Not sure off the top of my head how to spin it for Clinton or Huckabee...Healthier food to reduce health care costs? Biblical stewardship of the Earth?<br/><br/>It would seem to me to be a fairly low risk idea to espouse, since it doesn't require the government to spend a lot of money.

Not sure off the top of my head how to spin it for Clinton or Huckabee…Healthier food to reduce health care costs? Biblical stewardship of the Earth?

It would seem to me to be a fairly low risk idea to espouse, since it doesn’t require the government to spend a lot of money.

Your post inspires me to start a completely separate blog that is more active. When I do I will let you know.
