As a sign of the economic times, more and more people are starting to think about growing their own.  As reviewed in USA Today, seed sales are way up.  My sources tell me that compost sales are way, way up this year, with many people asking for advice on how to start a vegetable garden.

In the old days, many people had gardens, and then there were the famous Victory Gardens during the World Wars.

These are tough economic times, and they appear to be bringing out a streak of self sufficiency.  Let’s hope that it proves possible to help ameliorate the situation.
