Default where are you

I think that everyone should automaticly post where they are when they post a message. People post pictures ands issues about their perils and don't bother to post where they are. Just a general location so that we have an idea of what they are facing weather wise. That is always pertinate I think. Wether they post it or it become a standard that the group makes happen I think it is important. I never post a message or a response without saying where I am so that people have an idea oif what we are facing in our local.

I wish I had a buck for every time I asked for someone to change their profile to spell out location and the USDA zone. Not just pin a location on a map.

My wife and I could have a very nice dinner, with booze and all, with those "where are they" bucks.

To state your home town is helpful, if you are looking to exchange life plants with persons living
nearby, but stating your hardiness zone in your profile is absolutely essential, if you want pertinent
answers to your enquiries or if you want your post make sense to your viewers.

Same here. Perhaps the answer is to not reply directly to questions but to suggest that poster update their profile? Even stupid me was able to answer the questions when I joined so my location is clear. (Not trying to cause a ruckus but a real gardener knows where they live, their low zone according to USDA, their higher zone according to another service and the zone they dare think they might occupy. BTW, in my dreams I'm living in an 11 where you can grow gooseberries and currants.)

The USDA hardiness zone map doesn't account for microclimates very well. I think they have me listed as 10A even though the average winter low is around 40 degrees in Pahokee.

I find zone maps very frustrating; I consider them only a starting point. Supposedly I was in a 6b or 7a in the DC area but I was surrounded by asphalt and concrete plus my house was 1/2 stucco which allowed me to grow 8a and even sometimes b plants in my west facing protected side yard most years. Took me several years to figure out my hot spots.

Actually the information on location for most of us is found to the left of the post. In this discussion the only member whose location cannot be found is amantedelenguaje (Language Lover).

As far as soil type, I have added to my signature. My place is built up on a hillside with a very poor, iron rich, red clay subsoil which we refer to as hardpan in the States. We remove the soil in 1/2 cubic meter (for bananas) or cubic meter (for fruit trees) holes and replace it with richer black loam soil in order to give our bananas and fruit trees a decent start in life.

It rains nearly daily from mid-April to early November and vey little precipitation the rest of the year. Temperature rarely gets above 26C (80F) or below 18C (65F) throughout the year. We have the option of displaying a weather gadget on our posts so you can tell the current climate conditions. My location is usually two degrees C lower than that displayed.
