Did anyone else get a strong urge to garden once they got older?

    Ever since my mid twenties I've had that strong need to nurture something, but I hate human babies :))

    It didn't hit me until I was 25, then plants were all I could think about. I would see baby plants on Instagram and just melt :hearts:

    I wouldn't say I hate human babies, but I don't want one myself. Kittens or puppies on the other hand...❤️

    What the hell, isn't that your alt account, Skrod?

    I was very much into plants and gardening all throughout my 20's, but I've grown weary of it the past few years. I think it's because our new house doesn't have any windows facing south to put plants and there's no chance for a garden because the trees keep it in shade all day. Now I focus on the yard landscaping instead.

    I actually have a few succulents that seem to be doing ok in my North window but my best window plants atm are my Christmas cacti. They're tiny babies atm tho because I couldn't bring my whole plants with me to Vancouver so I just took some leaves off of everything
