Organic Eats . . .

Despite having no yard, no soil, no grass, and living in a tiny NYC apartment, Adam was able to grow vegetables (at least for a short time) in our apartment last winter. I was doubtful at first but plenty of sunlight and water led to some tasty lettuce, snap peas, broccoli, and basil.

Our window sill turned out to be too cold in the winter and eventually everything died. Growing the veggies for a while turned me into a believer of growing what you eat. If we lived in a warmer climate and had a yard, I would definitely be into growing our own produce like this family.
