    I am often impressed by the selfless generosity of this community. The more you give, the healthier we become as an organism.

    I've been involved for twenty years in growing and breeding roses, and there is a strong community built around a network of amateur (and professional) hybridizers, and we have a core principle: if you want to preserve something, give it to others! In that way, you create a networked archive of plant material, and if you ever lose your specimen, you should be able to requisition a replacement from someone you've donated material to. It's insurance against loss.

    Totally agree. Except for the breeding roses part--I haven't intentionally grown a single one in my lifetime because of deer and maintenance!

    Deer are so annoying. I know someone in Los Angeles who was so annoyed at them for eating his plants he shot one with a rifle and ate it.

    Lol, he shot the deer through his bedroom window and ate it. He had to cover up the evidence since it was illegal, I believe.

    Definitely. Launching a deer out a window would raise a lot if eyebrow.
