Re: Garden Club Meeting - August 2012

I have just started my garden, but am excited to grow here.  I don't think it should be too hard to avoid new apps as I will be in another country for a few years.  I am glad people like the spades, they look great!

[ Edited ]

i just joined the garden as well and have been pulling weeds left and right:smileyvery-happy: but i like being in the garden seriously, as fun and addicting as App'ing for cards is, the garden can be just as good. i like watching my current cards grow and my AAoA rise! i just got to maintain some self-control and refrain from app'ing (its not as easy as ya think it is) lol:smileywink:

Approaching a month in the garden and getting a bronze spade!!

Oh, and you guys would be proud of me, I almost went in on a Kays account but didn't, thinking about my garden and my fellow myFICO'ers opinions!

Hands are firmly in the soil!

Re: Garden Club Meeting - August 2012

I just pulled my EQ scores and report from myFICO, and...drumroll.... the final CO is GONE!!!!! And, after months of my EQ score refusing to budge, it finally jumped by 42 points!!! And, although the CO is stil showing on TU, I received a 10 point boost as well. So, I reached my FICO Fitness goal of getting in the 700s!  I'm so happy this morning I'm beside myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Garden Club Meeting - August 2012

I'm newly gardening....it's a teeny balcony-sized garden (2 secured cards) but until January 2013 it's what I have to work with. I figure until then, I take good care of my little guys, and focus on my CR baddies.

I'll be over here mixing up some blender drinks :smileyhappy:
