I read this headline last Easter that said I could grow stuff from my leftovers. So, I buried a hambone in the backyard and waited for a ham tree to grow. It never happened. Needless to say, this year's dinner went poorly. Which is why I'm going to a free class this Saturday—Backyard Farming: Successful Plant Practices and Selecting Materials—in the hopes that some experts can show me how to plan and design my home garden landscape before Thanksgiving. The workshop is open to the public and starts at 9am, April 22, at the Gutierrez-Hubbell House. (Joshua Lee)
