Thanks to all the generous contributors on gardenweb

To those of you that contribute to the body of knowledge here:

I wanted to thank the many contributors here for all your help. Your answers to my questions have made a huge difference, but the existing body of knowledge that you have accumulated here has been even more helpful. I'm amazed at the number of true experts that selflessly contribute their hard earned knowledge.

Thanks to you, we had fresh, ripe, delicious fruit every day for 2 months. I hope to continue to learn and do even better in the future.

Thank you.

I've been a true believer for many years, and come to rely on the contributions from these nice folks, who have given their time and experiences so freely.

Not only have I learned to grow my own food organically for the most part, working with nature, but also learned to prepare that food once I grew it - (harvest forum/cooking forums).

Our family budget has been maintained during stressful times. What started as a hobby initially, has become a way of life, since my retirement.

I wouldn't have an orchard, not for the great encouragement and information. Now look what you all have done! :) Mrs. G

If I may be a bit philosophical on this. I had notice this about myself. When I was younger any skill or special knowledge I had, I kept to myself. I suppose a natural human competitive thing. By the time I reached 40 my outlook had changed to value the exchange of information and bettering of all people (by teaching, not hand outs)

The guys that are so helpful here are clearly that way. They know how much of a difference they can make to other people by allowing them to gain all of this information without learning the hard way.

Just imagine how many successful fruit trees there are in the US today because of the members of this forum alone.
