Default greetings from Italy

Hello everyone,

I am very happy to be part of this fantastic group.
I am a passionate farmer
as a hobby,
of Pitayas, and other subtropical plants adapted to my climate.
I live in southern Italy.
I hope that there are other friends with whom to exchange information of cultivation.
Good and happy day to you all.http://www.bananas.org/images/smilie...oohoonaner.gif

I think you will be able to grow a few things there. By the way, I LOVE the name 'Puglia'. Sounds like a place where all the boxers would be from.

(I know it should be green/white/red but it IS a banana, after all)
