The Two Approaches To Gardening

First, there's the right way: plant the proper plants, at the proper depth, at the proper time of year, in the proper manner, feeding and watering at the proper intervals.

And then there's the way I've adopted: see pretty flowers at Home Depot, buy, stick in ground, get wet. Repeat.

What's the worst that could possibly happen? They die. Well, chances are, they were going to die anyway. Now I've just invested a whole lot less effort into the process.

I don't think I'd use this approach for running a business, or writing code - but I think it'll work fine for gardening.
