Guerrilla Gardening

I saw this determined palm tree growing right through the parking lot on my walk home from work on Saturday. It reminded me of how much I've been enjoying my current bedside read, Guerrilla Gardening by David Tracy. It is a wonderful book and very pertinent to life in urban LA. He talks about secretly planting in public places, creating your own container gardens, and general gardening knowledge for those of us who lack our own bit of dirt. And it's all done up with a wit and candor that makes me giggle. He also brings in political elements that make you feel like you can change the world just by planting a seed. And you can!
