    I'm always interested to hear your stories about how you discovered GardenStew.com. Can you remember the site you arrived from or the search engine? What were you searching for at the time when you stumbled across us?

    I wonder who has the most novel way of finding us :D

    If my memory is correct, I found the site doing a google search for "garden message board" while looking for fun garden sayings, jokes, and quips. It looked like a fun place so here I am. :D

    Very interesting to know which search engines and search phrases everybody uses to find the site. I am constantly working to please the search engines so that many others will find the site. Linking to the site is a great way to move up the ranks in the search engines so if any of you guys and gals can spare a link feel free to point it to us :)

    I found this site by typing in Garden Forum....was not sure what I was going to find....but I am sooo sooo happy that I found all of you!!! Also, since I am trying for a cottage garden 95% of my plants are the typical picks for UK gardens....and no one here seems to know what they are doing!!! :rolleyes: So, I am extra glad that I have such knowledgable people to talk with!!! :D

    Went looking on/thru goggle for a place to do an unline garden tour with our garden pictures.
    Looked like a good place, fairly new so maybe there wouldn't bee some of the clickyness that other places have.
    Sorry ya'll got so busy with the bees and the new honey house I have fell way behind with the picture posting.
    My work agenda is full till the 15th of November when I go on a two week vacation. Then it is lots of time to catch up withthe postings and other projects.

    :D Al
