  • About me
    Hello, I'm [sarkos] and I'm 17. I own half an acre of land but haven't been able to use most of it since the soil is dense and baked. I have four gardens, three are outdoors; that includes my citrus garden, vegetable and berry garden, and my rose/fairy garden. I have an indoor garden which is primarily medicinal plants, cooking herbs, and tea herbs.
