'Growing your own' is not just for the pleasures of good foods, but for the pleasure of the eyes and spirit as well, with the side benefit of enriching the earth and air that are the invisible pluses of growing trees and flowers.
Yesterday, a Federal judge ordered the immediate destruction of hundreds of acres of genetically engineered sugar beet seedlings that had been planted in violation of federal law. Monsanto, King of what I consider Frankensteinian Lab Seeds lost this round, but that is a rarity. Knowing what you are eating, and how it will affect generations to come, as well as the very land, is a gift we have been given. Oh, how easy it is to simply pick up something in the market versus growing one's own tomatoes/lettuce/herbs, but the price can be higher than only money. Use the gift! Grow your own!

Diane's veggie and herb seeds are from local producers in Puerto Rico and she will be expanding that section. There are roses and trees and plants of many kinds. She also just brought in some pavers (made in PR), fountains and garden sculpture stands. Check it out. Bring some beauty and plenty into your lives for this new year while supporting a local business. As Diane says, Little by little, poco a poco...watch the garden center grow.
Congratulations, Diane. A lot of hard work, while having fun doing what you love, giving benefits for all of us on Culebra. Well done, chica!
