Since you all are geeking out on graphics :P, I'll add my two cents on this matter:

It all depends on the resolution of your monitor. I have my work monitor set at 800x600 pixels resolution because I can see details clearer. But my other computers are set at a higher resolution.

So when you post a photo at 800x600, the 35% of users that set their monitors to 800x600 will have to scroll to the left to enjoy the photos.

99k is a large size for a photo. I could probably reduce those to at least 15k (including a size reduction) by using photoshop. But not everybody owns photoshop, or even photoshop elements, so no worries. :)

Thanks for the pics, they DO look great, and I have broadband so no issues downloading them.

I hadn't even considered that some people have their monitors set at 800x600 - mine is always set at the max so I can see more of the page I'm working on. part of the job I guess...

I'll have to remember that when I work on my website...

Maybe someone should split this topic off to the General Forum and entitle it "Pictures" or something to that tune.

Looks great!

Florida lets you garden all winter, and in the summer if you want to - I never did during the hottest months. If I didn't want to be out there, I figured most of the plants I was growing didn't either - and they would be lacking my attention to boot.

So - late June to early September, I let the garden beds bake (nematodes could all DIE!!), by mid-August I would start seeds indoors and by late September/early October - I had a garden again. So enjoy your months between now and June - have you started any summer crops yet?

Woah! Sorry 'bout the size E'VryOne... New camera! This things awesome. 7.2mp updating from a 2mp! BIG difference... I resized them twice... The next ones'll be shrunk more... I promise...

But anyways, this is my first berry!

They're lovin' the CoCoCoir; I reckon... I'd like to get bigger containers for them maybe though after this first set come out... ?

Just a touch of spotting on those leaves H2O; naught to worry about yet but something to keep an eye on...

Probably a touch of fungus. I always start with milk and work my way up; try a cup of milk in a gallon of water and spray that on. Wait a few days and reapply. Gets most minor fungus aand it's great for the plants...

H2O Sevin is a poison, not a fungicide; it does NOTHING for fungii infestations. Frankly the Sevin has been linked to bee kills and you are gardening against your own self using it. We are about out of wild honeybees,and we are killing the rest off with use of things like Sevin without understanding the long term effects on our ecosystem. Without pollination you get NO strawberries. Without bees you get almost NO pollination (some other insects are bearing the load, but look how many posts about crappy fruit set in our veggie forum last year). Lack of pollinators is causing us issues and indiscriminate pesticide use is causing lack of pesticides. ANY spraying other than a direct application to an existing problem is bad gardening practice, by contributing to non-source run-off pollution, increased tolerance in insect pest populations, and increased damage to beneficial insect populations.
