    Think I have an idea on planting but so many ???

    update #4 is processing so while I'm waiting, I started looking at plants again and I wanted to pose this question for you all. Is it bad that I'm leaning toward certain types of plants over others? I'm really not a big fan of huge leafy plants, items that will create a lot of shade for...
