Urban Farming Rules for Spring

Sad to say, we Americans are getting larger, especially kids (one-third of children are either overweight or obese). We're eating too much junk and processed food, thanks to Big Food - the monolith of industrialized agriculture.

One way to eat better without depositing your entire income at Whole Foods - much as we love the place -- is to grow your own, even if you live in a concrete jungle.

You can plant a garden on the roof or balcony, or indoors -- though, do ask the landlord first. There's an entire movement developing around urban growing, called vertical farming. It's mostly about large-scale projects, but small gardens help too.

So how else do city slickers get a green thumb?
