I am on the brink of another decision. It is a decision I have avoided because I could always get away without making it. However, the time has come to reconsider...
Let's just say this decision has to do with growing a "garden". I already have two little "plants" growing. Each day I feed them, water them, read them a book, and cover them up when they take a nap. According to the NY state "rules of gardening," I can care for two "plants" legally without a fancy little certificate. If I want to add more "plants" to my "garden" however, I must abide by the bigger set of "gardening rules". This is where the decision comes in. Do I go for the certificate, continue to "pot more plants" and take my chances, or stick with just the two little "plants" I am already growing? (One of my fellow "gardeners" was turned in recently.)
Growing a large "garden", or even a decent sized one, takes planning and preparation. It also takes some knowledge of the local "gardening rules". I plan to study the book, think through the process, and plan out my strategy. I think a fence would help keep my little "plants" safely contained and a "trellis" would provide plenty of fun and exercise. I may have painted over the flower garden on my living room wall, but that doesn't mean I have given up on being a "gardener". The real question is just how big a "garden" would I like?
