Well at least you have been spending your time well, I quess. I myself sort of grew up on a farm though I cant grow anything, never learned, my
grandfather the dude could grow anything anywhere, he tried to teach me but I never picked up, even my mom she freaking has tomato plants and other
variety of plants growing out of the cracks in the cement in our driveway.
The house we live in was bulldozed over a swampy marsh area. No really! I think the developers got the land cheap and built right over it. When we
were putting up brick planters around the house some years ago for my mom, the ground was hard as cement, it was nothing but small rocks and clay the
construction workers must have bulldozed or brought over trucks full of gravel and just duped it there to give hard ground for the base of the houses
they were building. It took me hours do dig a foot into it with a pickaxe, I even dulled the sharp end of it, and the destroyed a shovel.
I found cigarette cartons under there, old tarps they use in construction, and plastic bags the workers used to bring there lunch in and all kinds
of trash, even what looked like could have been the remains of a old boot, man it sucked. But somehow those small trees my mom planted and all
kinds of things still grow there. Now a days planting things is an artform that few know or have the skill at.
