I have a garden, but disclosing such information might get the DEA on my rear end. I try to avoid composting, it's great but I've never been able to stomach the smell. Coffee grinds and banana peels help, but not much.

Are you looking for any plants in particular? I know there are some Asian herbs that you can't find anywhere in NY, I have them all here in the supermarkets in CA, I'll regenerate them and mail them over if you want anything in particular.

Do indoor or underwater gardens count? I've been trying aquaponics, growing my plants in a floating pot in my fish tank, it's working great, but until harvest time I can't really tell which is the better method.

If it's green it counts.

HAHAHA!! Dude that totally made my day, thanks for that.

I'm trying to be less open about it, Mods already warned me about inappropriate content so many times, I don't want to get another warning. I guess I'm just too inappropriate for the more conservative types. But who is to judge what is inappropriate? Here, it's normal.

That would be awesome. But right now I have no idea about asian herbs. I'm terrible with asian cuisine.

But I will look into it. I have a lot of asian supermarkets here in NYC so it might not be necessary but thanks for the offer. BTW what would you recommend?

Started out by double digging (with a little green compost mixed into the bottom layer) and followed that up with companion planting and had the best harvest I have ever had this year.

Too much... just find something you like but can't find and I'll sniff it out.

I grow these little red/black chili peppers that are burning hot, native to Vietnam or whatever, I LOVE them. You can only find them dried in supermarkets, never fresh.

Asian coriander is another favorite herb of mine, but is very common.
