I love to grow
Stuff I can eat! Heirloom and organic varieties when possible, though I've been given seeds and seedlings I'll also use.
Indoor stuff like sewing, embroidery and knitting, mostly related to medieval history recreation. I also spend too much time on the computer, reading facebook and playing games :)
