tens of thousands of dollars a year). There's also a very useful page on
home composting (are you a Lazy Man, an Active Man or an Iron Man?) Check

This is the Home Page of the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, MO.
I used to live in St. Louis and visiting this garden was a year-around treat.
In the dead of winter, the annual orchid display in the Climatron would
lift our spirits. The Japanese Garden, a joy all year, is especially so
in spring. The water lilies, roses, numerous displays and demonstration
gardens are worth enduring the heat and humidity to see in high summer.
But, hey, don't take my word for it, check it out for yourself!<BR>
