  •  Poll: when we realized our lives were too crazy (12+ / 0-)

    for us to be really master gardeners, we decided we'd make an "economic garden" - mostly plant things that are too expensive to buy, but also add in stuff that just isn't as good at the grocery store (even in season). Herbs are a daily necessity, but if you buy the size bunches the stores sell (or farmers' markets), there is always more there than you can use up quickly enough. So that's the one thing we grow always.

    Here in the SF Bay Area a lot of them grow year-round. Rosemary is grown as an ornamental all over Berkeley. Basil is an exception - ours definitely will not last into November, so frozen pesto and decidedly non-local grocery store plants are on all winter. We mostly take a basil vacation when it's out of season, but I'm sorry, I just can't give up pizza Margherita for that many months of the year ;) I just bought some baby basils from the gardener at my workplace Wednesday, so they are going in the ground tomorrow (I hope). Out tarragon is starting to come back, too, so we have to bring out our tarragon recipes again. Oh goody!

    We all understand that freedom isn't free. What Romney and Ryan don't understand is that neither is opportunity. We have to invest in it.
