I have been given apples. Now, how do I return the favor and give apples?

Joy, this is a great question!

What do apples and thumbs and pie mean?
Apples and thumbs and pie are given to post that people think are excellent. Only Pollinators and moderators (Gardeners and Stewards) can give out apples. Anyone can give out a thumb on any post. People who have Pie can give out two thumbs-ups. Pie can be given by anyone who has pie or wants to buy pie. If you have pie, you have access to a secret forum, as well as the ability to block ads and much more. Pie can be bought, given, or earned (at the time of writing, 20 apples earns you one piece of pie.)

Thank you for your reply! How do I become a gardener. I like dirty hands and I cannot lie!

Write lots of great posts to the forum that win you a lot of likes and apples.

I am looking forward to seeing those great posts!

What does Gardener, Steward, Pollinator, Pioneer, etc mean?
These are our shiny, gardening-related titles. Pioneers (like pioneer plant species) have completed the scavenger hunt. Pollinators are helpful and lovely posters that get to give out an apple a day. Gardeners and Stewards are our forum moderators.

With 8 apples for 24 posts, you're off to a good start Joy! Quality of posts, leaving room for others' opinion and writing with kindness are things that staff appreciate. Sharing your own experiences in a way that can help people with problems with their gardens or animals, gives fellow members a sense that they're not alone with their problems. It's the online version of "I like dirty hands and I cannot lie!"

However, if you want to get to know permies better, have you looked at your scavenger hunt on your profile page? Learning the skills that list represents is also appreciated by staff and members alike.
This thread has more information and instructions that are useful in learning those skills: https://permies.com/w/how-permies-works

Thank you everyone! I will post more this spring when I can finally get my hands in the dirt. Right now, there isn't much I can do (that I know of in zone 6). I have already planted five fruit trees this month. I am having an all season green room added off the south of mt home. It will get LOTS of sun for growing and helping to heat the house!

I have two packets of milkweed and one of snapdragons that I am going to sow soon. I have a ditch along my property and the milkweed grows well there. I even have some that grows "wild."

Hi Joy. Welcome on board. There is always lots going on at different times of year, so do share your experiences if you can help out other Permies.
Right now R. Ranson is trying to get together a house plants forum for Permies. Indoor gardening - what could be better at this time of year? Have a look at her thread New forum for house plants? and see if you can help with that. Awesome!

FYI, you don't have to be a physical, dirt-under-your-nails, gardener in order to be a Gardener on permies.  Gardener over here is a rank that means you've achieved moderator status
