I can honestly say that you guys have certainly added something to help me enjoy my day far more than I would have w/o your kindness. I'm 16.1 Celsius today, in case anyone was wondering. ;-) Thank you soo much!

Happy Birthday Al,

My trees are truly so much better off than they would have been, had I not found your posts and your willingness to share your experience and knowledge.

My trees thank you and I thank you.

I didn't log in yesterday but happy (belated) birthday. I (and i am sure everyone else) really appreciates your selflessness and assistance.

Awww - thanks!

Here's a cool thing you can do on some one's b-day if you're sending a card:

1) Buy a belated b-day card.
2) Send it so it arrives at least 2 days before the person's b-day.
3) Make sure you write on the outside of the card, "Do not open until (and write the date 2 days after their birthday)".

Thanks to "tapla" I've been able to grow incredibly out-of-zone tropicals from seed. All thanks to that famous soil drainage post.

I haven't even logged into this forum for a very long time, and it's worth dropping in to say thanks.

Here's a picture of a pummelo from seed because ... thanks to you I know I can.

I'm always late... this poor memory of mine!

Happy Birthday, Al! With all the help you've given me over the years, I'm hoping you had the best Birthday ever!

Laura, those are gorgeous Plumeria blooms! I'm still leery of leaving mine outside... this crazy weather we've been having has me afraid... we could possibly still get a frost or two, so I'm patiently trying to wait!

The best present I ever got was all the knowledge I've collected from Al and others... it has served me well, and I'm a much better gardener because of it.

So, thank you... and thanks, Al. You're a wonderful friend! :-) Big Birthday hugs... late, but still from the heart!
