Q: Do you have a garden? Have you ever grown your own food?
A: When I was young, we had a huge garden with all sorts of herbs, veggies, and flowers. I used to spend hours reading among the plants. My current tiny apartment doesn’t have room for gardening, but I still love the idea of it. Luckily, Seattle is a very green city. Even if I don’t have plants of my own, growing things are all around me.
