I can't stand all caps, either.  The only thing you really need is a "Visit now" added to the banner,  beside the current text - preferably at a 45 degree angle.   That communicates the 'go here' nature of the banner & the "now" generates an element of urgency.

Also. No animation.  No auto-sound.

We could probably get away with growing tropical plants that live in the understory: coffee trees, turmeric, vanilla, chocolate, etc. Those that live in the full sun probably wouldn't fruit for us unless we supplemented lighting... Here's some sites with shade loving tropical plants: and I do know coffee trees will merrily fruit indoors (my mother-in-law has one in her living room), but I don't have any experience with the others. What tropical fruit are you looking at?

Thanks so much for the link. I'll check it out. I'm not really going for commercial use or any extensive capacity. I just want a few different things for my own consumption, so I don't have to pay exorbitant prices at the store, and just for the fun of it. Here are some things I would love to try:
Paw Paw
Satsuma orange
and a few others which elude me at the moment.   I'd only want 1 or 2 of each - not a whole orchard or anything like that.

You think I'd be able to grow some tropical fruit trees in the year-round solar Greenhouse in the Pacific Northwest? Even though we don't have as many sunny days?

I'm in Seattle.  I thought I heard we used to have a native PawPaw around these parts. Anyone know anything about it? Or its name?  Also,  I got a cutting from a neighbor that is now growing in a pot. She doesn't know if it's a male or female.  At one time, she had 1 plant & a neighbor had the other & they used to get fruit. But years ago the new owner of the neighbor's house ripped their's out & she doesn't remember which tree fruited - hers or the neighbor's.  

How do I figure out if the tree I've got is a male or female so I can get another of the opposite gender?

Hi, Peter. I'm really interested in myco-remediation (sp?) Which fungi are better at clearing out petroleum products from the soil? Radiation? This topic just fascinates me. How long does it generally take for the little critters to do their thing?

P.S. I'm crossing my fingers & wishing for a copy of the free books you're awardsing.
