farming... do you like it?

the farming skill has been in runescape for almost 2 years (it came out july 21st 2005) and now that it has been around for a while, what do you honestly think of it? when it was first introduced, i wasn't too sure if i liked it or not, it is slow to lvl if you don't go around planting and digging up trees (digging up to replant with a new tree) and most of the produce you get isn't really worth much. many people moaned about it being quite a useless and boring skill at first, much the same as people moaned about construction, and then hunter, as with all new things, certain people just have to whinge and whine (they don't like new things haha!) but now that i have had chance to get used to it, and find what are the most profitable things to grow, i quite like farming, though my lvl is by no means high in comparison to others lol (70 at the moment). i quite like growing herbs more than any other plants, i do this as it aides my herblore lvl, also being able to grow limpwurt roots is better than endlessly fighting things like hob goblins or having to pay 500gp for just 1 lol. the only thing i really see as a drawback to farming nowadays is the fact that it only really helps out herblore, and possibly wc/fletch/fm when you get to a really decent lvl (75 for mage trees). what do you guys think of farming now?

at first i hated farming. thought it was a waster of time, but then i started to get it high to plant rannars, then i made p pots and sold them. i got alot of money back at the end. rannar seed=15k, i get 5-6 rannars per seed, 5 pots (3 does)7k ea= 35k. i make a profit of 20k

I would like farming if the patches were in more conveniant locations, if there were more patches by places I usually play I would definatley farm wayyy more, right now my farming is like 33 or something, and it's only that high because I needed it there for quests.
