Sometimes interests hit me in a big way, but programming was different, I wanted to be the best, catchem all so to speak, I trained hard and learned a lot of frontend knowledge by heart, nobody told me I didn't actually have to do that, so I remembered as much as I could.
It's been a long time since then, I now find myself asking a big question I never expected, is there more to life than programming?
Thanks to my career (and the pandemic) we have 👨👩👦 been able to move from a rented apartment/flat in a not so nice area to a beautiful Victorian house in the sticks.
We got fast internet and the rest is history, I then saw the garden, now as a lazy kind of guy I never really cared about the gardens, it always got a bit overgrown but I had agreed to moving here on the condition I would mow the lawn once in a while, thanks to fast internet and Google lens I become an expert at identify plants, my girlfriend (might as well be wife) well she started planting, I started planting too, we tore up the weed proof membrane and got to work, it's 6 months later and we have learned the terms of the trade, how to care for our chosen plants and a bit of garden design, now I'm wondering if somehow I could just start a flower farm and say goodbye to programming one day? I guess that's a retirement plan but it would have been nice to do this on this side of 50.
Anyone love gardening, what do you care about, what is your favourite plant?
