|(ATG-oops, thinking "All Things Garden"-hehe, couldn't change the title-sorry!) I hope this doesn't make anyone angry, but I'm just curious about how ATP got started:) I've been a long time member of Dave's Garden but I haven't been gardening much for the past few years due to a family illness and have totally been out of the loop. The other day I came across this website and I notice a lot of familiar names here. My guess is that Dave's Garden was bought out by "big business" and Dave started a new website? Anyway, I'm just curious-I love what I've seen here and plan on working on some acorns this week!|

|Got it in one, Deb, or should I say, "That's it in a nutshell.....er acorn." Minus the drama.|
Welcome! Hope you like it here.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

|Yes, Deb, that's a pretty good summary of what happened. It's ATP, by the way (AllThingsPlants), not ATG.|
Welcome to the site. I'll send you some acorns to get you started.

|Hi Deb ... from me too! I was at the other site (DG) for a little over 3 years but didn't renew my membership when it expired because I wasn't visiting the site any longer ... my home away from home (so to speak) is ATP. You will love it here; don't hesitate to introduce yourself around and ask questions ... everyone is like family and always helpful! |

| Deb. So glad you found your way to ATP. |
The best ever gardening web site. You are going to love it here.
What types of garden plants do you grow?

|Hi Deb, and welcome. |
There was also Cubits, created by Dave after DG was sold, and before ATP was created.
Cubits wasn't intended be be solely a garden site, but it does seem to lean heavily that way. It's like a mall, or a roll-your-own-site. You can create your own "Cubit" there, complete with forums and C-mail, and even sell things.
Just because it ISN'T complicated doesn't mean I can't MAKE it complicated!
