Nobody would ever accuse me of having a green thumb. Basically any plant that I have ever bought or been given has died under my tender loving care. I try, I really do. But I either over-water or under-water or something. They die. So I no longer have any plants in the house. And our gardening (if you wish to call it that) consists of some flowering bushes (azaleas, hydrangeas, forsythia, and roses) and some purple thingies that are perennials (but I haven't a clue what they are called.
Even given my complete lack of a green thumb, I got sucked into Farm Town. TheHusband is amused and bemused as I tend to my crops daily, hire others to harvest my crops, and hire out as a sharecropper on my friends' farms. I really like this game. It is sort of like SimCity a few versions ago, but without all of the under-structure necessary to run a city. (I don't care about the electricity and water pipes, dammit! Just let me build the buildings...)
I like the social aspect of it -- I visit my friends' farms and they visit mine. My farm has been Grand Central Station (4 people were there at one time!) and also the source of crickets. My best friend is currently living in Germany, and I told her (during one of our Farm Town chats) that I was jealous of our avatars -- they were in the same place chatting, while we are separated by about a zillion real miles.
Janiece and I had a hilarious chat that ranged from tattoos to things that are kosher to Jim being an asshole. I saved it, but then accidentally erased it. Trust me, it was pretty funny. Since I can't reproduce the conversation, I'll show you the picture of us chatting This was just after I basically mowed down a boatload of her crops).
Janiece's farm is very well-organized. I like that. Mine is definitely not organized, and that mirrors my house...
I like how the fields change as the crops grow. And I like to make designs and spell words.
