And just when I think I'm special, the New York Times does an article on "the blog generation" (am I part of "the blog generation"?!?) and gardening. I have been wanting a garden for ages, and have only managed to cultivate a few window boxes due to my lack of any outdoor space, and in my current apartment, my lack of sun. My next abode must have a spot where I can at least graduate to a larger container garden. For me, it's not a "radical political act," but a tiny spot of nature that I can cultivate and call my own. And cook with, of course. The aforementioned window boxes were full of fresh herbs, which I used all summer.
