Growing things has always been a hobby of mine. Both of my grandfathers were farmers. From an early age, making things grow has been most rewarding. I remember when I was 6, eating watermelon, and planting the seeds. Most of what I planted grew. When I ate what I had grown, it was the best. I guess you could say I have a green thumb. I had not taken it to the professional level, growing a number of house plants, and of course, seasonal veggies. Then, last year I brought my aloe plants to the internet.
