    Never thought I'd enjoy plants, but I've got a couple of roses, Russian Sage, and alot of flowers. Nothing too it, just water them daily. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I have the citrus trees that came with the house. I have a planter box with bricks surrounding I started prepping for the wife. We haven't planted yet, but will be planting some cool stuff. I also have a tree that I couldn't save I will be pulling and planting something else ther. I am learning as I go though /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    My grandma is the biggest green thumb I know. She is turning 86 this year, so she is retired, all she does all day is walk (excersise, around the block, etc.) eat, and do stuff with all her plants. So that rubbed off onto my dad, so he has ALOT of experience with plants and all. He had a hydroponic garden downstairs for a few years. And also he has about 10 plants upstairs. Now that he is gone, it is rubbed off onto me. So I water and feed them whenever they need to be. Theres nothing wrong with being a green thumb, you just can't have a bunch of pink flowers EVERYWHERE at your house, thats going to start something else.

    [/ QUOTE ] There is nothing gay about plants, and my K5 is sitting till I can afford more parts. Sucks too have too pay the bills before I can buy more parts for the K5, but that's just life I guess.

    He was growing, um, herbs, yeah, that it, herbs. Like oregano and basil, yeah... They were for... spaghetti, that's the ticket, spaghetti...


    My Dad had a green thumb, but for some reason only one row of corn would ever grow, all the rows behind the front row were overtaken by these funny looking big tall stinky weeds. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    My yard used to be really nice, but I let it go. I have been working on it today. It still have a long way to go. But yeah, once it's up to speed, it's nice. I do enjoy plants and having a nice yard to go out into and spend an evening in. Especially during the summer. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I like to garden and work in the yard. Its relaxing. My wife also enjoys it. She is a member of the local garden club so she is pretty much into plants and flowers.
    I like to grow vegetables. Espically Hot chili peppers.
    We spend a lot of time together working in the yard. Seems like I always have a project going on in the yard.
    I am hoping to build a small pond soon by our patio. Maby stock it with Pirhanas to give the neighbors cat something to play with.
