for those of use who are going stir crazy in the cold climates & are dreaming of SPRING

I know alot of us on this board are at the antsy 'when will winter finally END' stage, so I though I'd share this. Met up with a friend on Sunday @ Borders. While waiting I picked up Don't Throw It, Grow It!: 68 Windowsill Plants from Kitchen Scraps which was ACTUALLY a pretty cute book. With a 33% off coupon I couldn't resist. Could I find this info on the internet? sure.. but it's nice to be able to leaf through it and find out how you can grow your own gingerroot or chickpeas from scraps that would normally wind up in the compost. It's a little book, I paid around $7(US) for it, so it's not a huge investment. I guess I'm getting desperate for greenery in the depths of the winter in the northeast US. I've got my seed list/garden plan for next year done but it's too early to start seeds... so I've resorted to dreaming of growing my what would have been headed for the worm bin ETA: the author is the founder of the Rare Pit & Plant Coucil
