    William,
    I like that, maybe mine should've been latebloomer 2! LOL! Because I'm just like you! Mine is Vicki_H, used to be Vicki in West Mich. (but I forgot I signed up with that!) like my signature here. I'll have to check out your trade list and maybe we can swap in the spring. I will have LOTS to add to my list in the coming year. I put in 2 new garden areas this year. I say areas as I tend to go a little crazy! LOL! Sure wish I would've done before and during pics as these last 4 yrs. have really made a HUGE difference to my landscaping.

    You're right there is ALOT of good info on this thread.
    Take Care.
    Happy Growing,
    Vicki in West. Mich.

    Hi Everyone,

    Sorry I've been away so long, but I got lazy and didn't finish the list and then my computer wasn't feeling well and I couldn't connect to the internet for a few days. So, here we go with some more! I've tried not to repeat any that have already been posted. I've added a few that have been posted here as well, so hopefully I didn't repeat them.

    I've been at this for a while now, so I'll stop here and continue again later with houseplants, cactus, pruning, planting/transplanting, diseases, insects/pests, lawn renovation and care, veggie gardening, weed id, hummingbird gardening, butterfly gardening, frogs/toads, turtles.

    If anyone wants links on anything else, just ask! I might just have it.

    When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

    To Wiliam B.,

    You mentioned
    I have bookmarked this thread
    .

    These threads disappear over time and you might not be able to retrieve the info. You will either have to save it somewhere in your computer, or go to each site and bookmark each one. Best to make catagories like I did. I have them all under Gardening with a dash and then the topic in alphabetical order. It helps me to find them again.

    Newt,

    I am doing my best to keep ALL of the threads for a VERY long time. I had a server crash and lost some images, but that problem is now resolved.

    I pay for the space because the older threads have a great deal of valuable info in them. I am not sure how many use them, but a search will usually find a lot of info...

    Hang in there with me. I am trying to keep the threads for as long as I can.

    i copied and pasted the links in an email to myself.
    as winter sets in and i have more time ,i can surf them then.
    just a thought.

    here is a tip when copying. as you highlight and it wont highlight from top of page to bottom, reverse and start at the bottom of what you want and go up highlighting the text.
    right click copy and paste to what/where you want it.

    Ann,
    That's wonderful to know. So many forums either can't or don't do that. Very helpful!

    Shepp,
    Another great idea! You are definately going to be busy this winter.

    I have tried to make sure that all the links work, but if anyone finds one that isn't working or doesn't exist anymore, please let me know.
