What the forum's about
The forum is the place to post questions*, discuss news and
opinions and surf for inspiration. You can go directly to a
category that interests you and scroll through its topics, search
for specific items anywhere on the board or check out the latest
posts across the whole wide, deep field.
We hope you'll not only read, but post your own experiences and
questions. That's how we've learned, and keep on learning -- by
listening at the grapevine, and doing our own rattling of its

forum if we think the community there would like to know about them
or add to them.)

will grow differently. It may require frank talk with a dozen
gardeners before you hit on the combination that might make the
difference you want, or explain the one you saw. You can do that
here, talking to one, a dozen or a hundred people all at once. It's
exponential learning, possible when everyone gives and takes.
Have fun! Together we grow a community

can learn more about that?" someone appears at your elbow holding
another book open right to the right page, and keeping it open
there for as long as you want to see it. We hope you will tell us
if it works that way for you or you'd rather see it done another
