Been there, done that? The economy as we know it has crashed. Whatever we do to putting Humpty Dumpty back together again is now exactly going to bring the results that we would like. A shift has happened. The price of gas makes growing food right where you live more and more essential not only to survive but thrive. So now is the time to get to know your neighbors. We are entering a time when we need others more than we know. 911 may have put fear into us about trusting, but if we do not trust those around us now, we are going to be in a state of real homeland earth insecurity. Do you know how to grow a bit of your own food? Do you know your neighbors? In China, every bit of available space, whether you own it or not, is growing food. What are you going to do when the Vons shelves are barren? Do you realize that San Diego only has a limited supply of foods on the shelf? I for one plan to start knocking on some doors soon on my street to see who wants to help garden and grow food. Your Enchanted Gardnener, Leslie Goldman

Leslie last year my neighbors had a garden growing in about 18 inches of curb dirt. I harvested a sweet potatoe plant yielding beautiful fingerling sweet potatoes. We had tomatoes, herbs, peppers and lettuce. This year, some things are coming up, we'll see. We lost our head gardener and the woman who took his place is having some health problems. I weed and help water. This was all done with hand tools and elbow grease. If the disabled can do it, anyone can.
