When your kids ask your mom at a family function, "Where do I throw this watermelon?" and she replies "Duh, the trash." And he looks at me to make sure. We call our compost pile at home Captain Compost. "Take this out to Captain Compost." is a daily chore for them. :-)

You pull up all your beloved veggies started from seed , completely infested with bugs and dx, rather than use any pesticide.
Others think you are crazy- " Just put sevin dust on it."

Your idea of "green tea" is different from anyone else.
You still pick stinging nettle when wearing short pants.
Cleaning out the refrigerator is a happy chore.

You spend more time talking about poop than a third grade boy.

Your chicken poop is as prized as the eggs.

Your dogs prefer figs and tomatoes over storebought treats.

You have more veggies on your kitchen counter than kitchen tools.

Your guest room serves as a drying room for garlic.
