    Eh. We have a 2br apartment. I used to grow veggies in the spare room. Ran a 150w to grow lettuce. Fun stuff. Cost to much in electric to run a setup even that big, but it was fun. A lot of people tell me I have a natural green thumb with veggies. I know people who normally don't like lettuce. They tried mine, and asked me how did I produce such tasteful, and perfect lettuce.

    We have plants around the house though. Some tropical plant she got, that i've been saving. Poor thing got light burns from being under my propagation light. Chives, Basil, some fern we hung out back, and bogolias. Working on getting sun flowers, and basil plants that will grow in my makeshift planter with the bagolias.

    Use mirrors to bring light in from the window. To be honest, i think you are crazy for living in an appartment anyway. You are likely paying more than what a house would cost.

    I completely agree with you there. We pay like $690/month for a 2br 2bath. But we're litterly 3mins from the beach. I'm still young, only 23 so I don't think i could even qualify for a house. No credit at all. Sucks too, because I can't even finance a mower. As for the mirrors. To much work to go through all that. It's why we just have plants on the porch. HOA's Gardeners, my neighbor downstairs and neighbor next door tell me all the time if I ever want to plant anything out back or out front just run it by them first.

    Ummm.... if your asking me. Of course. We have 3 apts up stairs 3 downstairs and on the other side of our complex is the same exact setup.


    Guess you can call this my yard, even though its shared and I'm not responsible for the nice work. Crappy lawn guy won't cut the yard though. I've complained to the two who do the landscaping about it a few times too.

    you can get approved for a cheap house. save a couple grand for down payment. houses are safe investments, they can always take it from you.

    do not, DO NOT. get a house in a home owners association. its worse than Communism. i'm serious. especially in Florida.

    my mortgage is 395 a month.




    hey. yall might have to give me another day or two on them pictures. took all weekend to chop and stack the wood. still have a bunch of crap out.
