Gas prices have leaped over the four-dollar mark. And that is driving people to figure out any way to cut costs.Some are trying creative ways to fight back - in their own back yards.

The horticulture industry reports a definite upswing in sales this year, as people are raising their own fruit and vegetables to beat rising gasoline and food costs.

If you're thinking about it, your neighborhood garden center has all the supplies and advice you need.

It could be as simple as a flower pot or two on your apartment balcony.

You can also find a lot of information online from Bucks County's W. Atlee Burpee Company, one of America's leading seed suppliers since 1876.
