It seems I've got a lot to learn about blogging, as well as gardening. I essentially constructed a massive 8' deer fence around my blog and nobody could get in. Sorry about that. I tried to keep the spammers out by making it a process to post. What happened was that very few people could get to that point.
So effective immediately, I've made it so anyone could post and you don't need to log in. Now I just hope I get more useful comments than spam. hehe.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
