Nice gardens, I wish I had the ambition to have half as much.
I just finished very educational course on Lifelong Health. A series of 36 half hour lectures from a Medical College professor and surgeon. The common thread through all of it was that 2/3 of our life expectancy is controlled by our lifestyle and what we eat. He strongly suggests avoiding processed foods, eating a variety of whole foods and growing your own where possible. Having a home garden certainly is beneficial, it provide wholesome food and exercise for our bodies.
The course is one of the Teaching Company DVD series. Check out the course topics on their web site:http://www.teach12.com/tgc/courses/cour ... x?cid=1970
