Just beginning to read. Understand I can't use "impose my will" which is the Plan A onto ah boy.

After reading the book, I realised that I adopted the Plan A after repeated unsuccessful attempts at reasoning with ah boy.

Seems like I need to learn a better way at communicating my concerns to ah boy.

thanks for sharing. just bookmarked website. will read when i have more time. :smile:

so far, are the suggestions working?

Thank you. But I think I dun hv space to grow these at the moment. Need to reserve space for veg growing when the weather is better.

:wink: only adopted 2 suggestions - try to ditch Plan A as much as possible :lol: and adopt Plan C which is to ignore the issue temporarily so less confrontation for the time being. The collaborative method Plan B is the hardest n needs practices. Hence I am using more Plan C now.

Hi ladies,
Thanks for your advice.
Have been thinking whether to plant for leisure or to harvest as food for family.
Tia.
