Should I learn everything or be a expert in one area!

Gardening is so complex and so simple in so many ways that it boggles the mind! gardening has such a wide range of things to learn and go wrong at the same time. if you want a challenge become a gardener. The rewards come in all directions from thanks from a neighbor to a back ache at the end of the day.!

My outlook is I get exercise while having fun nd sublament my food value and health at the same time! You have to learn the art of cooking or marry a good cook! Too me gardening is so exciting with so many avenues of thought and adventure! making a garden year roud by add a solar greenhouse makes my winters milder in respect to my mind calmness! The satisfaction of a hard days work with future results is a plesant feeling!
+++
Picking a peck of lettuce and sharing it with your friends is a pleasure that you have to experience! A fresh just picked garden tomato with turkey on two slices of rye bread with mayo is a delicacy that will always make your mouth water and make you a true tomato grower ! There is no other sport or way of life that will compare to the gadener! So much to learn so little time!!! Maybe consintrating on being a expert on lets say just onions is a challenge and when you do that you can add a few more vegetables to your forte! I love gardening!

Bobber - you pose insightful questions. I don't care to be an expert in any one area of gardening. I enjoy the everlasting learning experience of a broad spectrum of gardening and landscaping. The day I stop learning is the day I die.

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. ~Author Unknown

I always like to read the fortune cookies with some pretty clever sayings! If you forget half of what you know as you get older I guess I am not even half as smart as I should be! This should be on a fortune cookie but its too long for the paper!!

I think I would need several lifetimes to learn everything! Unfortunately, I have already forgotten half of what I have learned already

It seems the older one gets, we realize how much wiser we need to be. :roll:
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.
