    Will she come with everything she needs or will I need to pick up food for her on the way home?

      I'm glad someone else said it. She sounds very selfish and demanding you give up something you like for no good reason other than she doesn't like it isn't right.

      Hank. Some friendly advice. Draw the line. 15-20 figs is not unreasonable. If you like them, keep them. It won't stop with figs. Have a good prenuptial.

      P.S. Garages and driveways are for figs, not cars.

        Before drawing lines in the sand snd possibly starting a war, have you studied any HOA by-laws for your new home? I know around here many are incredibly strict around outdoor plants and decor. I've hear of everything from fines over hoses left on the front lawn overnight to violation letters for planters with flowers hung on balconies...

        If you confirm the potted trees won't be an issue with the HOA, maybe figure out how many your allotted outdoor space can accommodate and see if you can get her to compromise and let you bring at least your best producing and favorites of the bunch.

        Good luck!

          I dont like being told what to do with my personal property either ..BUT you have to understand that there are always some people that go overboard with something that makes the area look shady . A few plants off a balcony are fine to just about anyone but when you put 30 plants of staked tomatoes. Pole beans , a citrus tree and dozens of flowering plants cactus etc. the next door guy wants more than 2 cars on his driveway and so forth . it makes the area look unkept. Also the rules keep the values high and security is better as well. So it comes down to a choice. No one has a gun to your head to live in that kind of community. But it is good for some people.

          Convince the buyer that part of the sale agreement is that they are to tend to these good karma trees. If kept alive until dormancy, the troll in the attic will magically remain asleep. Once they are lignified send em over to Ol' Rudy. I'll dispurse em for ya.

            That's sad, check the HOA rules, and if there are no restrictions try to bring atleast one with you. They don't take up that much space, unless you accumulate dozens.
            My MIL moved to a town house recently. She has a very strict HOA. But she is able to have plants. I gave her a fig and she put it on her front yard in a nice planter.

            YOLO!

              Just another good reason to stay away from HOAs! I'll never buy into another one, most people have no idea what they are getting into.
              As for the wife, I'll keep my opinion to myself. Good luck in the new abode.
