While there is a nearly spiritual cult around growing things, there is also, in the book of Genesis, the picture of Jehovah planting a garden and telling Adam to keep it. You cannot go wrong in planting a garden, even on the roof of an apartment house in Brooklyn or Singapore. So, we want to share with you some of the things we have learned. A good place to start is with a number of very useful books which will reduce some of the pain of the curse.
