    I have a picture of a vine with a fruit that looks kinda like a green tomato, growing on the fence at the horse pasture. I would like to send the Pic, but don’t know how! Tennessee western middle!

    I do not know if it’s just me or if everyone else encountering issues with
    your website. It appears as if some of the written text in your content are running
    off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This might be a issue with my browser because I’ve
    had this happen before. Kudos

      I am sorry for the delay in answering your question. There are only two of us who manage the site. I do most of the data collection & photos, and Katie does all the data downloads and technical management of the site. She is currently in the midst of a major project which has her pretty tied up. Unfortunately I can’t answer your question, but I know Katie is planning to get back to this website as soon as she possibly can, and she can answer your question much better than I can. Joy

      Hi Vern,
      Sorry to get back to you late. It sounds to me that your problem might be browser related or if you are using a slower computer. Basically it’s not rendering the site well. Sorry to hear this is happening to you!!! I would be interested to hear from others as well if this is a problem for them. We do pack a lot of info into this site so it could just be slow to load. Have you noticed if it eventually corrects itself given a little extra time? Anyway, Hopefully you can still at least see the info? I currently use Firefox for my browser if you want to try that,(and aren’t already using) it’s free to download. :)

      Many thanks!!
      Katie
