Welcome! Ronnie! There are lots of folks from Florida on this site so you should have no problem finding people to give you advice and cheer you on while you start your big project!

Since you are new, you may not have known that we have a raffle going on. It's called the March Not-A-Raffle-Raffle (we have one once a month for most of the year). You buy tickets with acorns which you can get by adding pictures to the database, adding a comment about a plant you grow, gardening events in your area to the event calendar and so on.

I'm sending you some acorns so you can buy some tickets. If you decide not to buy tickets you can always use them to buy badges (those little pictures under people's names)!
