Perfect! Couldn't have said it better myself.
Gardening involves time and patience (not my strong point!), but my scores went up around a hundred points in less than a year just from waiting and minimizing util and waiting some more, so I guess I can do it again.
edit: I doubt I can do the hundred points in a year thing again, LOL --I meant that I can wait and be patient again.
