I am Gen X (according to your guidelines) on the cusp of Gen Y. I am an avid gardener. Been doing and loving it since I was a teen. Possibly before. My mother is a Master Gardener and we were in 4-H and Girl Scouts. I grew up in the northern suburbs of NYC and while not many other people were in 4-H or Girl Scouts I think they were a great influence on me. I don't remember many friends parents gardening when I was growing up. But I think that The overwhleming feeling / pressure on people to make money has moved people away from wanting to be outside and have an influence over their environment. I didn't get a place to garden again until I was 29. The moment we bought our house was the moment I broke ground in my mind for a veggie garden, and flower gardens as well as just cleaning up and creating usable space in a very neglected yard. It has been 3 years and we have made progress but time is lacking, cost is high and the availability of affordable attractive decor is limited. I do not want to purchase a concrete angel for my garden or strange fat frogs or bunnies or weird giant solar lanterns with ugly animals or insects. The scale of available decor is not good and the style itself is not good. These companies need to hit Pinterest, the internet whatever and see what is trending in garden decor and do their own development. Stop just buying what China is offering. That seems to be the end of my rant. Thanks for listening!

Personally, I garden because it gives me satisfaction and the food tastes so much better. You cannot compare a home grown tomato to a store bough tomato. They're not the same.

As much as I enjoyed the early issues the last few, quite a few have been very disappointing. For me it was like a bell curve started great and when down hill fast. I found myself wishing my subscription would end earlier that it actually did. I think the thing that turned me off the most was that they no longer has a great economic range. Everything they featured just seemed to be so astronomically unreachable it wasn't even worth browsing it anymore. Then I found AT!
