I actually didn't know about some of the rest of the votes going on. Made it easy to decide the answer on this one. I'll have to check out the others.

I've commented on watchdog, plant comments, plant images, and added plants. I have not yet added any book reviews or commented on public gardens, but I will get that done soon!

I selected "all".

I've uploaded pics to PF's, posted comments, added my zipcode report.

I've also added one book to the bookworm section.

So far I've not plunged ahead with the prospect of mail order plants so I can't yet review anything for GW.

Tallulah_B, you'll find links to about half of these features in the Products and Sources tab: http://davesgarden.com/products/ The Watchdog, Bookworm and Go Gardening are great for finding new mail order vendors, local places to visit,and books worth reading. Plus, by reviewing the vendors, businesses and books you're familiar with, you're helping future readers know who's a good bet, and who's not.

You'll find PlantFiles and BugFiles under the Guides and Information tab: http://davesgarden.com/guides/ - again, sharing what you know about plants or insects will help others.

Tir_Na_Nog, if you have some local garden centers or nurseies you purchase from, you can add a review for them in Go Gardening ;o)

Others in family use my pc...today is my turn. I'll do "catch up"; I have too many plants in pots. Must get then all into greenhouse before first average frost date of November 15 IN ZONE 8, LAKE SAM RAYBURN, DEEP EAST TEXAS.

I've been propagating many leggy potted plants; winterizing young trees and shrubs, roses, candle tree, hibiscus, Confederate rose tree, Grancy Grey Beard trees, and about 20 others. Phew!

I'll update my Dave Garden activities right away.

Blessings for success and pleasure as you grow beautiful plants.

I didn't know about a lot of these! I'll have to go back and add some others soon. For now, I've added my two favorite gardens in England, and comments on others in the US.

I put "some". I am more interested in images and plant and insect i.d. than in seed catalogs, for instance. There are lots of interesting areas here and I keep finding out more!

Sigh I put none (blushing in mortification) although I did put 2 notes in PlantFiles about federally prohibited plants. Mainly I haven't done anything because I'm just not techie and I'm afraid of blowing something up. One of my winter projects is to learn how to do PFs and put all my stuff in. I think once I learn how to do PFs the others will be easier to learn (I hope).

Thanks so much Melody and Lin! I feel better about it already. I will get over my 'freeze like a deer in the headlights' reaction to new techie challenges. I will.

I really appreciate that everything here is so accessible! I am like the least techie person in the universe (except for my M.I.L., who won't even do e.mail ). I can't believe I want to learn photoshop next year!

Nope. They take me back to the home page. That is something I don't know how to do is make a hyperlink! l.o.l.

Roybird, Photoshop is a lifelong learning process. Just when you get almost where you know most of it, they come out with a new version! Love it though, I was self-taught almost 15 years ago...

I think to make a hyperlink you just copy and paste the whole address from the address window in the top of your browser, including the http, etc... looks like Melody's didn't catch the whole think in the link for some reason.
