    Sixties girl, I'm from the other side of the world.

    One of the reasons for me is the cold winters that this forum deals with. In australia everyone seems to be talking about the heat. We do have very hot summers as well, but it's the lack of information about how to make your plants survive in the cold that helps me. And the short growing season - also a match for our area.

    Other than that, I like that people tend to make things, whether it's garden beds, features, or plant feeds. I don't plan to spend mega bucks so that I can garden so this is a really great place to pick up tips on making use of things.

    And I love the chit chat so I can let off steam when things go wrong, or have a brag when things go well.

    Love the fact no one tires of your constant questions and also love the hints on how to use your home grown produce...especially the chutney recipe!

    For me it's the great sense of community and readiness to help on a vast diversity of subjects

    I'm a taker / consumer all over the internet, so in areas where I [think I !!] know a bit I like to give something back. The social networking part of it, and chatter not related to gardening etc., is not something that I engage in on the forums [although there are sometimes a few exceptions ]
