This is sooooo, cool and great! I use to do the gardening thing when I was much younger and received nothing but A's of course with the help of my mother. Yea! This is a good thing to do and eat.

I agree. Garden parties for everyone! You inspire us all Catherine :D. Everyone's invited to my house for a Hallowen native wildflower seed planting party!

What a Great Idea! When my daughter and I saw you in Atlanta you mentioned that you are a Vegetarian and Olivia's eye lit up! She hates to eat meat but because I insist on her getting her Protein I make her eat fish, You are the only person, I have ever heard in person, that doesn't eat meat but the fresh garden in the yard would be Great for Olivia and I to do together and it might help me understand why she only wants to eat veggies! Thanks for the idea!

Cool idea, and great video! The garden party is such a great idea! So inclusive and community-building to ask friends to help.

BTW, I want Mr.Carrothead in a totally nonvegetarian way.

For people who don't have a yard where they can grow vegetables (renting, too much shade, impossible to keep neighbors' bermuda grass out of garden, etc.), lots can be grown in pots, and they can be grown very densely, too.

In areas where there is a water shortage, vegetables in pots is the way to get the most bang from your buck. Plant the stuff that costs the most and is easiest to grow in pots (tomatoes, bell peppers, cilantro--nearly have a salsa garden right here!), and then you only have to water the soil that is in the pot, watering the vegetables.

Good soil is the most important step of a good vegetable garden. Lots of ways to get your soil (and its microbes) cooking.

I have a degree in environmental horticulture (minor in soil science), and in my job I teach people how to save water by water-wise landscaping (including pots). Sustainability is going to make or break the future of our civilization. Kudos to Catherine for providing the inspiration!

How cool! I have always loved digging in the dirt, and having fresh veggies as the end result is heavenly. My Dad started a small garden that quickly turned into a large garden after he retired. It helped him feel better about not working, and we loved eating the bounty from it.
