We're going to focus on two things here. The first one is saving money on a required gardening practice - seed starting. The second one is ignoring the fact that we're heading straight for deep winter and instead, thinking about spring. We're going to deny that we have have months on end of cold weather and sleeping plants.

"Do not eat garlic or onions; for their smell will reveal that you are a peasant.” Cervantes in Don Quixote. Unless you side with Don Quixote, don't forget to plant garlic before you put your garden to bed for the winter!

I like being a worm farmer. Like my fondness for rabbit poop, I take great pride in the rich nutrients they produce for my garden. These are natural talents we humans can't begin to duplicate. Our poop just isn't that great.
