Folks, we just wanted to send a heads up to everybody on this point. Gardening topics are off topic on all boards on Chowhound. Not because we hate gardeners- some of us are gardeners too! But there's just SO much to be said on the topic, it has the potential to get really out of hand, and our primary mission is to share tips on where to find great chow. So... we ask our posters to save the gardening talk for one of the many fine sites out there that are gardening-oriented. Thanks.
