For spider mites, I've heard that a hard spray with water is actually much more effective than resorting to chemicals, since the mites have short generation times and can develop resistance very quickly. Same goes for using baking soda on powdery mildew, rather than a chemical fungicide. I've tried a lot of the things on this list with pretty good success.

Agreed with the last two comments. My husband and I are both grad students, and we live in a somewhat generic-looking 1980s townhouse that is close to our campus. We had originally hoped to find an older home with more character, but all of the cool places turned out to be out of our price range. I would LOVE to see some more AT posts on turning boring apartments and townhouses into stylish homes. Not all of us are starting out with hardwood floors and high ceilings!

In North Carolina: watermelon, figs, and muscadine grapes. The sweetest peaches are already over for the season, but they had a good run. :)

As Peace Corps volunteers, we dedicated a lot of time to touting the benefits of moringa! Easy to grow (in warm climates, at least), and is high in protein in addition to having the usual nutritional benefits of leafy greens. We ate it lightly cooked in curries and broths, served over rice. It was also yummy in omelets. It really is a miracle tree!
