Urban Agriculture Notes
This Urban Agriculture Notes site provides links to a diverse collection of information having something to do with growing plants, some serious (Heavy Metal Concentrations in Russian Gardens), some significantly less so (Jerry Seinfeld's Worm Bin). Although focused on Vancouver's burgeoning gardening community, the site carries info from around the world. You can scroll down a long list of sites or click on subject headings (urban forestry) or geographic regions.


Herbal Salad
After eating all those holiday goodies, it's time to hit the salad bowl. If you sowed seeds for leafy greens in October, your veggie garden should be providing plenty of healthy rabbit food by now. Here's a simple tip to add some zip to your salad. Chop a few snips of dill or cilantro and toss it in with your lettuce, spinach, arugula, etc. The fresh herbs add plenty of taste with no salt or fat!
