I came across an article today that says seed and gardening supply sales are up in spite of the hard economic times. Probably it's because of these hard economic times.
Backyard gardens are especially popular and more people are planning to raise their own vegetables. It's predicted that gardening supply sales will jump 40%. Also, vegetable seed and plant sales are squeezing out the flower sales.
This reminds me even more of the Victory garden era of the World War II years.
For tea drinkers, this might mean that more will raise herbs in their gardens or in window boxes and make their own beverages from them.
What types would you try for tea? Do you have any favorites?
