FDIC Bair: Banks Lost $32.1 Billion In Fourth Quarter
I've been thinking a lot about gardens lately. What do you think about gardens? I think they're a rather pregnant idea right now.
Steve Picou has left a new comment on your post "eerrrhh......holy shit?":
Regarding gardening, welcome to the club. I've been cajoling, harassing and begging my superiors to head to Washington to get Extension Service written into stimulus packages. The LSU AgCenter teaches people how to feed themselves. I've been increasingly frantic in pushing this fact. I have a garden. Everyone needs one. Every school needs one. Orleans and Jefferson have a total of 2 AgCenter horticulturalists serving the population. They are increasingly overworked.
Steve, can you elaborate on why you think gardens are important right now and who to contact to get more info?
I wasn't kidding when I suggested gardens as a good idea. Yesterday, one of my friends said he was going to dump all his money into gold. My reply was....you can't eat gold. The potential for things to get very bad, very quickly is more prescient than most would like to imagine. Growing a garden is a damn smart thing to do right now. But don't take my word for it...take Steve's.
