I was at a meeting on Thursday night and found myself talking about Michael Pollan's article Why bother? in the New York Times Magazine's Environment Issue from this past April. The article talked about how simply growing a garden could make a difference practically and more importantly, I think, philosophically. We live in an apartment, but we (Christa!) planted a garden this year and we enjoyed the last of the tomatoes last week; the herbs are frozen and the seeds have been dried and saved for next year.
