Home gardening?

What with the 17% jump in home gardening since 2008, I'm curious how many SE'ers are among that number. Who grows a part (or even all!) of what they consume? Do you grow stuff and then figure out what to do with it later, or do you grow to meet a known need (ie: plant okra because you love it and can't buy locally)? Got any labor-saving tips to share? Do you save your seeds or buy new? Garden in containers, community plot, or the back forty? Do you preserve your harvest, or gobble it down in a frenzy of seasonal eating? Tell all!
