Thank you so much Victor, I loved your article. I'm engineer, too. I used to be a big city girl, but vegetable gardening is more than a hobby for me now, I just go crazy about it and I don't know why. I think what we do is to teach plants how to live as human beings! I mean we don't have perfect lives, why vegetable plants have to? For example, how many times ex wives hit our heads with baseball bat to ruin our lives as much as possible? Plants are just learn to survive anyway in extreme conditions sometimes.
