Harvest celebrations occur around the world to honor Earth's bounty. Increased awareness of the planet's limited food supply prompts gardeners to experiment with curbside gardens and 'sharing gardens'.

Mingling a few vegetables among garden flowers, or even nurturing a patio tomato or small 'salad garden' can be surprisingly satisfying.
