I wanted to quote some of the above comments, but then I went back to the top and re-read them all down to Rita's post. And then I discovered that every comment listed reflects something that I wholeheartedly agree with, and cannot improve upon. All of these members express so much the way we all feel at one time or another about this great gardening site!
I want to add that we all are in a state of continual learning here because of the array of new ideas posted each week. This does not include all the wonderful pictures, comments and references posted as well. So for me personally it is a continuing education at its best. And ATP represents a treasure trove of information, factual data and photographic identification. And the forums themselves are priceless.
Congratulations to everyone associated with this wonderful endeavor! I would be remiss if I left anybody out. So my very best wishes go to everyone involved with ATP, from the newest member all the way to the the administrators, all moderators and of course the Whitinger family! I feel honored to be a small part of it all!
