Why I'm Getting Dirty:  Grew up with a 1/4 acre shared plot. Never knew other people didnt garden. Kept tomatoes on the balcony ledge in college. Now as a mom in an appartment gotta keep it up with containers on the porch. Oh, it also tastes better, i know what went into it and i can get stuff i cant get at a store (lemon cukes)
