    Hare Krsna, dear devotees! Below is a beautiful and moving letter from inmate Bhakta Mark. I hope you will be as touched as I was when I read it. This is the type of letter that inspires me to keep doing this service. There are real people out there, who are in such a dreadful situation, people who suffer, locked in with the worst of characters and under very severe, oftentimes brutal conditions, and they long for something more, something that will help them transcend the miseries they are...

    Heads up! There's some new, beautiful young broads in town. I purchased organic broadbeans from Eden Seeds, my favourite supplier. They took ages to poke their heads up. Two weeks in fact, but that is quite normal. There's 90 - 120 days between sowing and picking. One secret of broadbeans is to not water them at all from the day of planting until two distinct leaves are visible above the ground, else there is a chance of rotting.

    I am sure you would agree that one of the greatest disappoinments for an organic gardener is to find crop beds decimated by critters. Considering that many edible plants take months to mature, one often throws his or her hands up to the garden gods and proclaims 'what's the use!!' Interestingly, it seems that the same simple kitchen ingredient that rid my garden of parrots (who ate all my young snow pea sprouts) could be the answer to my slug and caterpillar problem.
