Who does it? Are you organic? (Lounge Gardener, I'm looking at you here)
Re: Gardening by Spursfan on 23 August 2007 9:13pm
Don't like and won't eat/buy/grow organic food.

Husband mainly does it (gardening). He mows the lawns and looks after the back garden, my job is to weed the front borders. Trouble is with the illness I have I get tired easily so the front garden is overgrown with weeds while the back is a picture!

I feel guilty as this village has won the best village contest sometimes!! It won't win it again with my gardening.

Basically I HATE gardening, I would rather lounge in the garden with a good book and a cold drink (and a bar of Cadbury's Milk Choc if you're offering)!!

My wife does the gardening. She is quite orgasmic.

My other half does the mowing and I do the gardening---flowers, not veggies. It's sometimes a lot of work, but rewarding. An absolute park-like setting when all is manicured. I must admit, a lot of the plants are native to the area so not much needs doing except at seasons' beginnings and ends and some dead-heading along the way. The heaviest work involves pruning trees and shrubs and laying mulch.

I'd just like to state that I am 100% organic and have had absolutely no plastic surgery.

Is the latter a complaint, Kaz???? HAHAHAHAHA wink wink xxxxx

Just to add to my post there is actually a 'Garden Guild' here which meets in the village hall across from us once a month (I think.

My parents were members - I most definitely am NOT!!!

I am a keen gardener.

Clearly, the vast majority of the peoples of this website are too scared to venture away from the darkness of their computers and explore the outside world and to reconnect with nature.

And some of us are not fortunate enough to have a garden. How lucky for you to be able to indulge your horticultural ambitions Gollumit.

Yes, perfectbitch, I forgot that you live in a slum.
