But here are some things I would totally do today if I were free with no cares in the world:

I have a brown thumb and would like to scrub the brown off to reveal the green that I know is there, so this would be a good one for me: (plus, my sister says she saves hundreds of dollars a year growing her own veggies. awesome)
