Some parts of life seem tedious or just plain boring—like doing laundry, sweeping up the random assortment of food crumbs that have somehow accumulated on the kitchen floor and grocery shopping. Wouldn't it be awesome if we all had personal assistant robots to take care of every inconvenient chore, so that we could focus on more important things like our careers, badminton and learning to spell every state capital backward?
Well, alas, robo-assistants don't exist, aside from Roombas. But the Idaho Botanical Garden wants to make grocery shopping a little less awful. Today, IBG will host Grow Your Own Groceries, instructed by Teresa O'Connor, co-author of the book Grocery Gardening.
Shopping for sustenance will be a little less awful sans the shopping-cart-bumper-car battle of the grocery store. O'Connor will talk about her favorite things to grow in the Treasure Valley, and about how to transition them to your dinner table.
The class takes place at the IBG cottage at 10 a.m., and costs $10 for IBG members, $15 for nonmembers. Visit the garden's website for more info.
