After stopping in from various search result pages in recent years but never spending time to explore, I joined the community a few months ago, and have enjoyed all the features. Over the past two decades I've drifted into several online garden communities, but I'm not one for much chit-chatting, and eventually drifted away. ATP has some extra hooks (populating the database, winning those acorns
) that keep me coming back. My favorite forum is plant ID - both to sharpen my own identification skills (although I'm seldom the first one to offer a positive ID - the "easy" ones get answered amazingly quickly) and to get feedback on my garden mysteries.
So I'm glad to see the community thriving, and hope to be a part of it for years to come. Thanks to all who make it happen
