I, for one,  am bit unhappy with this forum and its founders.  It seems that it causes me to spend an inordinate amount of time reading and writing about tropical fruit trees, and other less important subjects, taking me away from my work and family.  One particular moderator/administrator/founder is highly capricious and dictatorial. And there are numerous members that cause me tremendous tropical fruit envy.  So thanks a lot for forcing me to hang out in this forum, suffering all the while.  I will definitely be making a New Year's resolution to continue and intensify my complaints as outlined above.  ;)
I am in the same boat, thanks for the good work

HA!!  Same here and thanks to all the wonderful people here on the Forum for their help and kindness.

Thanks to all who have been instrumental in creating this site & keeping it running well.  It is a great source of knowledge and has helped me source a few things I may not have found otherwise.  Great work!

This is a great place, thank you for starting and maintaining it.
I can offer a couple of plants for the forum. I have a Queen Avocado grafted on West Indies root stock in 7 gal pot.
I also have a Malama Avocado that can be auctioned or sold for the forum.

Just throwing this idea out there.  Why not have a raffle for either:


a) something cool like a Zills experimental mango tree that perhaps he wasn't going to release to the public that he would donate


b) a bunch of us kick in some stuff (I would be more than happy to as I have doubles of a ton of cool stuff) and make a massive gift basket and sell raffle tickets.  If someone were to add professional grafting services to the basket, I would buy every ticket available! 




It takes all of the fun of getting stuff and adds in the excitement of gambling.  Throw a bottle of blue label onto the pile and we have a party. 


I know I would buy a bunch of tickets even if I was just winning back my own junk.  Everyone loves to hit the jackpot!

I hate to be redundant, but thank you all. Tropical fruit people in general are a pretty great group and this forum is a great place to interact and learn.

Thanks to everyone(mods, admin, forum member etc), that made this site possible. Thanks to this site, I found my new hobby after suffering from Guillain Barre syndrome/GBS(look it up, if you don't know what it is, esp mr. plantlover13;).
