So many people are talking about their little private potager gardens. It's quite a remarkable thing that's happening. A plot of one's own is so stylish these days. The NY Times has an occasional blog post about growing your own vegetables and the 'Victory Garden'. In this difficult global economy, people are banking on gardening. “Survival Vegetables” are the most popular: peas, beans, corn, beets, carrots, broccoli, kale, spinach and the lettuces. Quite quaint and lovely actually.
