Not-quite-Canadian Rockies edible plants: what's the best reference?

I'm going backpacking for a couple of weeks in the Beartooth mountains next summer. I'll be above the tree line most of the time. I'd like to have some local herbs and greens to make trail food more palatable. Is the flora described in Edible and Medicinal Plants of the Rockies going to be the right stuff for this trip? Is there another pack-reference which will better describe this biome? [more inside]

What plants could symbolize the names Evan and Nathaniel?

I want to do something (maybe embroidery, maybe a tattoo, maybe plant a garden) with plants that symbolize my three children. My youngest is named Rosemary, so that's quite easy, but I am having a harder time coming up with plants that would symbolize the names Evan and Nathaniel. I've googled and had no luck. I'm looking for something that contains the names, or something recognizably similar to them in the common or botanical name, or maybe a plant that is somehow associated with those names, or... anything you can think of. And the plants probably shouldn't look odd with a Rosemary plant next to it.

How does your butternut squash garden grow?

A new use for old snoes

Old sneakers as planters. Has anyone done this? I'd like some advice on what kinds of plants work best. Other than one article stating to use hearty plants, the tubes have not provuded much. I'm going to talk to the the person at the garden shop as well but figured I'd try here first. Oh, and I live in Centralish Florida, if that helps narrow the choices. Thank you!

Help me grow the indoor bamboo garden of my dreams

I'd like to grow bamboo in a container indoors (I have a sunny south-facing window that it can live in front of). Any advice about the best varieties, how to get it to grow tall, and where to get a plant (I'm in NYC) would be much appreciated. (NB: I am NOT looking for info on "lucky bamboo" plants, I want the real thing)

Indoor herb garden

Last summer, I was walking through Boy's Town here in Chicago when some guys handed me a mint plant to advertise some new plant delivery service in the area, focusing on plants for cooking. I did not want to raise fresh herbs last summer, but now I do and, although the mint is thriving in my mom's garden, I have lost the business card that came with it! My websearch skills are not helping me find them; anyone know the company? [more inside]

Nutritious and Delicious??

Fake and edible indoor plants? For my Kittys... Does anyone even make such a thing? If not, what could I make it out of?? Or if anyone knows of any tough non-toxic indoor plants that will cope with feasting, possibly air con and shitty light but definitely the feasting! What would you recommend? (A roster/tag team basis would be perfectly understandable and acceptable...)

What is that white foamy stuff I saw dripping off all the leaves in a forest in Northern California and then again on some of the plants around Whistler, Canada?

What is that white foamy stuff I saw dripping off all the leaves in a forest in Northern California and then again on some of the plants around Whistler, Canada? My first thought was bird droppings, but it seems a little too insubstantial for that. A few people thought maybe it was sap or pollen. Does anybody know for sure?

Shaded garden plot needs color!

It's July, I'm in central North Carolina (Zone 7 or 8 depending who you ask), and I have an unused, mostly shaded 3' x 6' dirt plot at the side of our front lawn that I'd love to put some color in to brighten the neighborhood. What can I plant there now that'll give me the most color through the fall? Annual or perennial, bonus points for drought-tolerant but that's not essential).
