I have a story in the New York Times today (it is here) about VeggieTrader.com, a site that is essentially Craigslist for homegrown produce (you can swap or sell homegrown produce or plants on it). My apartment is now brimming over with the 25 strawberry plants that one VeggieTrader swapped me for a pepper plant and a woman melon plant. Though scraggly, these little ladies fill me with joy. They are all my children.
UPDATE: Oh, no–have I turned into what United States of Arugula author David Kamp calls a smugavore?
