Too early to garden yet

but I really want to start. tbh we have to wait until the veggie seedlings are available anyway, and then we can start something; I have some seeds left from last year; and yet.

And yet.

I'm browsing Amazon and looking at mushroom kits (I don't even *like* mushrooms*) and "exotic veggie kits" (I would at least try those) and "grow berries from seed" (which will take a few years to actually get fruit out of them, I should buy plants that are already a few years old and transplant and work like heck to improve the soil here).

I'm looking at those "water gardens" which have the fish in them and I know they're probably not great for the fish, but I want to get some little rainbow guppies and have one of those things.

I want to make a garden.

It's productive. It's life.

*But maybe fresh mushrooms would taste better? idk? how do you even cook those?

I'm kind of a fish advocate, LOL!, so I must say that I hope if you really want fish, you'll set up an actual aquarium and not give in to the pretty desktop variety, because they really do suffer in that environment. Besides, it's a waste of money because they're guaranteed to die!

I'm starting to want to grow things, too. If I ever get out of where I'm living and have my own home, I think I'd like to have a non-ambitious greenhouse to grow non-ambitious things. However! I'd love to have an avocado tree! In the yard, not the greenhouse, obvs. X)

Oh, I know... I know they're not good for the fish at all. I also don't want a full aquarium because fish aren't cuddly and I have never had good luck with them. :P Which tells you how badly I want to get started on a garden, to even consider that!

You can at least start an avocado in the kitchen window ;) and then get it to a container...
