grow great grub by gayla trail is pulling tightly at my gardening heart strings. i am a full believer in her ideas- food in small spaces! container gardens! reusing & recycling! i am even so inspired as to make her ideas a sort of manifesto for myself as we prepare for our move in a little over three weeks.
one little tidbit from the book that i found incredibly interesting is making more plants from what you already have. on page 31, trail gives easy instructions on how to propagate a variety of plants. by cutting the stem just below an attached leaf & sticking it in water, you will have new roots in a couple of weeks.
& to my surprise- i had real success! from the stem are healthy roots just waiting to be covered with soil. although this seems like such an easy task, it was satisfying to know that i didn't need to purchase another plant for my garden.
