    Is there any place that I can keep a grow list that I could edit without having to get a website? There is no way I could maintain a website and I realize I would have to have the skill set to do so and I am sorely lacking in that area.

    I don't personally have a lot of CPs so I know it sounds sort of silly particularly in consideration of all the grow lists I have seen people post that are longer than my arm BUT...
    I have several CPs and I purchased plants for me that will be delivered this spring. When I receive them, my grow list will double. My thoughts were to keep track of which plants I have right now BEFORE I end up with 100 in the years to come.

    Also too, the school where I volunteer has a lot of CPs now and the teacher was wondering if there was any softwre out there that was a "fill in the blank" type software so she could keep track of when she received a plant and the source as well as when she began to germinate seed as well as notes. Does this software exist?

    Oops, would somebody please move this question over into General Discussions. I screwed up and posted it in the wrong forum. Sorry.

    But then I'd have to be a member over there and I only have time for one site. I'd love to be able to have time for two CP sites. Is there anywhere to suggest an area for growlists for our site? Maybe if this other foum does it, we can do it? We have an edit feature to every post so if a CP dies, it could be removed and when we add a plant we could just edit it in. Maybe that would be too much bandwidth? I know we are a free site and maybe that other site charges a fee for posting. Doesn't matter if we get an area or not as I'm staying here. Maybe someday I will enter the new Millenium and get a website.

    What do you use to keep track of your CPs and where they were from and such?

    The subject has come up before. Perhaps a Moderator can explain how or why TF is arranged the way it is?

    Although you prefer not to spread yourself too thinly on another CP site, it wouldn't take any more time to register there; utilize the grow list site; and import it to your signature in your profile. It is quickly and easily edited to reflect changes. There are many people who use both sites but almost exclusively use one or the other as their discussion forum. In other words, it wouldn't take too much time to register and borrow, without overextending yourself.

    There are several of who have used this approach to provide a grow list, including Cool85k5, myself, BigCarnivourKid, and Rattler MT.

    I just edit additions and subtractions when it becomes necessary and one can include info about who, when, and where they came from, right on the grow list site. For those of us who don't have a personal website, this was the quickest and easiest way to procure a conveyable grow list.

    But won't CPUK become...hum... "angry" at this practice if it's abused?
    If the dragon is bigger than his treasure, it's not worth the effort.

    So many people are members of both forums. Moderators from one are members of the other and vice versa. Grow lists are imported from there to here and topics are repeated in both places. So far no one has taken exception.

    The only abuse I've ever noticed was when one teen tried to import a "beef" from one to the other and ran into the same people rebuking him. That and use of signature commercially. Otherwise, it actually advertises the other forum.

    They don't seem to be in competition with one another. One is more international and adult while the other is more American and has a fair amount of teens. As far as I can tell, it is a peaceful co-existence.

    I'm thinking I'll have my girlfriend's husband set aside a page for me at his website to use as a growlist. Now all I need to do is remember to ask.

    As far as software, I found these sites but none seems to meet my needs.

    Grow'Em 2000
    http://www.powen.freeserve.co.uk/software/downloads.htm

    Gardenerís Journal Premium version 3.1
    http://getutilities.topcities.com/Free-Ga....on.html

    Garden Organizer Deluxe v2.2
    http://www.downloadthat.com/software...sp?prodid=4942

    These two are more for people who are prone to forgetting what they planted where-
    Garden Planner v1.4

    3D Garden Composer 2004

    More educational for kids-
    Garden With Insight-
    http://www.kurtz-fernhout.com/gwi.htm

    I donít have any of this software. I am thinking of trying the demo version to both Gardenerís Journal Premium and Garden Organizer Deluxe.
