    Hi all,

    I would like to introduce myself to the group since I recently responded to some of the postings. It is only polite to present myself in a more formal manor.

    I reside in PA and mostly grow in a small greenhouse, in my basement, outdoors, and in my fridge. I guess that shows my level of diversity. :) I also grow some plants on the campus of the University where I am employed. I probably have a collection of about 800 plants.

    I've enjoyed all the posting I've read in the past and enjoy the comments by many of the members of this forum.

    On a side note...(before Mary Jane gets to me) YES!:D I do like beer. Still to young not too! :p

    Troy

    Welcome. Despite what you might think, some of us wouldn't touch beer and only drink wine. I'm sure there are some who don't drink at all.

    Who? We need to know. BTW, beer is wine. Sparkling barley wine.

    I'm not telling YOU. Besides, I didn't say I knew who they are, just that I was sure there were some. I've seen you in action, Dale, and you are a switch hitter. If it is open, it is good.

    Yeah, I had some gin during harvest. That probably 'splains why my eyesight is getting worse. *hic*

    Gawd, no. I got that for guests, but Forrest seems to be the only one that likes it.

    Welcome, Troy! Let's see some pictures. What university do you work for, and what do you do? I was your neighbor to the west, until I got smart and moved to the subtropics.

    Hey Dale, I heard about that gin event. Sounds like it was epic.

    Welcome to the forum. Do you grow Angraecoids? With 800ish, I can't imagine you don't.
