Something seems off here: Where does "misma" come in to play? Shouldn't it be "I grow them the same?" Could someone break this sentence down for me.

"yo mismo/misma" is an expression in Spanish that means "myself".

Man, I always try to answer fast and suddenly get busy with something else, and I dont see your comment until I publish mine. Ugh.

Lol, MISMA-here- does not stand for 'same'. It goes with the 'yo': YO MISMA = myself.
