Hello from the Philippines!! I really like plants that they say very difficult to handle.. so I'm planning to grow avocadoes and prove them it's not that difficult.

I also like a gardening challenge. It keeps the "hobby" fresh for me. If I can't turn any hobby into a brain stretching experience, I quickly loose interest in it.

love it! you would be surprised what you can do in a small space and it makes it easier as far as I'm concerned. bees, rabbits, quail, chickens, ducks, gardens, even a couple fruit trees! waste not want not. compost is life!
