A huge thank you to our wonderful not-a-raffle-raffle Sponsors/Vendors! I've had the pleasure of purchasing (and winning!) plants and seeds from a few of you and I've always been pleased with the products and the great customer service! Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up I encourage members to check out the vendors websites and don't hesitate to place an order, you won't be disappointed!

Big Thanks also to the Whitinger family for creating and nurturing this amazing gardening site of caring and friendship; I consider it a huge win just to be able to view the videos of the drawing! Those sweet children sure make my day! Lovey dubby
