I love the color, the photo's, the ease of navigation, the fellow gardeners, everything.

Everyday, it's like walking into a new garden and seeing new plants, trees, veggies - I love looking at all the photo's.

As huge and global as ATP is, it has never lost that small hometown feel.

Thank you most of all for the lifelong friendships that have been formed, all because of you Dave and Trish Lovey dubby

God bless you and yours Group hug Group hug

Wonderful people! (Starting with Dave and Trish and their brood.)

POLITE people!

Friendships!

Almost the only website I've encountered that's EASY to use despite having depth and content.

Absolutely the only website, software product, or commercial, private or government organization where a request for a change gets instant consideration and usually instant gratification. There should be a best-support-in-the-world-EVER award for Dave.

Oh yes ... and I even get help gardening here, too! It's the best site anywhere for that, too!

Well said Rick, well said. Thumbs up I agree
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I agree
Despite being an absolutely massive database and collection of forums, ATP is very user-friendly. Not only is it a well-designed site overall, I am constantly amazed at Dave's almost instant responsiveness. Great team of admins as well. Very impressive. Never seen anything like it.
And all the gardening info you could ever want, to boot. This is a wonderful community of members and a great repository of knowledge. Where else could you go if you need a plant, weed, bug or bird identified? Just post it here and you will have an answer in a flash.
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Now that I've had time to mull it over for a while I think the thing I like most about ATP is the immediate accessibility of the owners, Dave & Trish, and the webmaster without peer, Dave. For it all begins with them and *everything* that I love about ATP is *because* of and *comes through* them.

I don't think there are many forums quite like ATP. The community of gardeners, Dave creating, maintaining, and constantly improving this site, wisdom of so many others here, friendliness, helpfulness, so many inspiring photos, a place to be educated about so many aspects of gardening (AND life), the opportunities, and the sharing .... I honestly don't know any other site on the internet that offers all of that and MORE!

Thank you to everyone making ATP such a success! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.
