    How do you support your habit?

    Hello again everybody! In the last few days I have been wondering what kind of jobs and careers help us to keep our hobbies going. In other words: "What do you do?"......

    I will start us off with the fact during winter I hibernate and am quite the bum. During spring summer and fall, however, I am a greenskeeper on a golf course. Also I am a hort major going for a degree in turf (pretty lame, I know). Here is a photo of me hard at work lol.


    I suspect alot of you have much more interesting occupations than I, and I look forward to an interesting lineup.

    nice thread.
    I build custom homes here along the Southern Or. Coast.
    I am envious of your winter hibernation time....we work in it all, rain (mostly), sun (can get Chetco Effect) upper 90's, wind, well it is the Coast.
    I am grateful however, we do not get much snow! (sorry Mass)

    Currently i'm a senior in Horticulture at NCSU, and initially I mooched off of my parents, then i've just made smart trades, giveaways, saved spare change, and used some money from summer jobs to get to where I am now. When I graduate in December who knows where I'll be

    I sell plants and seeds to support my gardening addiction.

    It's a vicious cycle.
