How to garden in basement over winter?

How do I build a basement vegetable garden in winter? I have gardened over spring/summer/fall outdoors. I need advice on what lights to buy, what vegetables can grow over winter, how to pollinate, etc. Also, can I use heat lamps to help with the warmth loving vegetables, or is that too energy inefficient?

I need to kill a tree.

I have a ficus tree in our yard (planted by the previous homeowner) that is growing too fast and the roots have breached the main sewer line on our property. The trunk of the tree is maybe eight inches in diameter, and completely removing the tree is dicey due to terrain and sewer line considerations. I live in Hawaii. Any suggestions?

No, not the band.

Vegetable gardener living in SoCal (zone 9) wants to try growing black-eyed peas (cowpeas) in big raised beds in the backyard this summer. Problem: being Yankee-born and raised, I have never grown, eaten, nor even seen black-eyed peas before, on the vine or off. Suggestions for backyard-worthy varieties, gardening tips, companion planting possibilities, and authentic recipes desired.

Help me save my rosemary bush!

Help me save my rosemary bush! This bush is in my back yard. I live in Phoenix, AZ. The bush has been there for 13 years, but in the past 6 months 90% of it died. I suspect it was either due to a freeze or some windborne weed killer. Up to now I have not maintained it at all (in terms of active watering, etc.) other than trimming it back occasionally. How can I save it?
