Like many young men, Eric Toensmeier and Jonathan Bates wondered what to do with their lives. Should they move out to the Coast, join the Peace Corp, or go back to school?

Instead, the boys decided to chuck it all and turn a barren lot in the run-down neighborhood of a rust-belt city into a garden. Girls, and their lives, would somehow find them in the garden.

And so the boys found themselves a soulless duplex with a 1/10th acre vacant lot in the Rust Belt city of Holyoke, Massachusetts, and went to work. In short order, they turned the vacant lot into a garden with hundreds of edible plants supporting a seed company. And the wives did find them, and the hildren did follow.

These boys, their families, the garden. and a seed company lead us to askā€¦

What else can one grow in a garden?
