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!

i just joined the garden as well and have been pulling weeds left and right 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

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's been a tough month! Almost bit and went for Amex BCE, but decided to keep gardening. Now in extreme paydown mode! Pesky hospital bill is finally paid off next month as well! Perhaps in Jan I'll go for BCE as a reward. Should be gettin my bronze spade in a few weeks!

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
