I don't know about your particular spot on the planet, but where we live today was a beautiful day.  And we spent the better part of the day working on some raised bed gardens.

Gardening in a fantastic way to help alleviate this "serfdom system" we becoming trapped in.  Besides the good exercise, growing your own food has spiritual rewards over and above the benefits of eating fresh, chemical free, (IF you don't go crazy on the weed and/or bug spray!), produce.

Now before you go crazy ordering plants and seeds, I'd highly recommend you check out the Garden Watchdog, which is a review of the various nurseries you're likely to encounter.  Some of the ones that fill your mailbox with catalogs are miserable rip-offs.  Wouldn't it be nice to know which ones people trust BEFORE you place your order?

Finally, here is a guide for all of you who are trying to grow citrus: Citrus Growing Guide .  We live too far north to grow all but the most bitter varieties of citrus outdoors, but we have had some success growing lemonsito in a pot.  (Citrofortunella microcarpa.  Called "calamondin" in English.)
