What does it take ?
Just wondering what's required to be considered as a gardener on this forum. Seems as though one person can talk about or show a photo or two of some fairly common, and, honestly, sometimes (not always though) boring subject, yet the responses are numerous and complimentary. Someone else may post about something more unusual and interesting, and it's barely recognized. Could it be that most folks are too nice to say something negative, or maybe that they shy away from the unfamiliar? I know that many people on this forum are friends, and have met at various gardening gatherings, which of course is really nice. But for some, myself included, it's mostly contact through this message board. And so it seems that there are very few newcomers here, and I think that it would be so nice to hear other opinions, and get some fresh points of view. Lack of new ideas leads to stagnation, and that's not very interesting.
