Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.


To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

    I was in my local Lowes today and stumbled across these San Marzanos. If there is any of ya'll out there, who doesn't already have the Utah Strain, and may be a little late in starting yours from seed: Check your local Lowes out. I have a second generation in the ground already. Thank's Russell .

    PS. They were on the bottom row, It was bright sunlight, and I took this pic with my phone. Had to send it to the better half who sent the pic to the home computer. I did not get a price either, sorry .

    Well, well, well, the SM are now mainstream and heirloom to boot! Gotta be cheaper than all the time and effort we have done to harvest seed and plant seedlings................your maters are already in the ground? I just started harding my seedling.

      They had those here in sc last year too. Somehow, almost it just feels wrong to buy Roma tomatoes from lowes....almost.

        I found some more at my local nursery, when I was gathering up bone meal and and magnesium sulfate (epsom salt). Yes, I guess, they are becoming "mainstream". But, they have a long growing season and I think that they will fit in nicely down here . I was counting on last year for just seed. I got plenty last season. But, my bunch liked them also for salad tomatoes. I am planning on making some sauce this year and canning some as well. My only worry is this. They are growing so fast this year that I am worried that "my last years gals" may have crossed with the neighbors plants .

        My maters really ain't in the ground so to speak. I transferred six to buckets and set them out on the deck. They were moved back to the sun room the other night, for what I hope is the "easter snap". The rest have spent just a little time outside. The ones that are in buckets will be an experiment with "hanging gardens". I have built some concrete reinforcement wire tubes for some. I am working on about a 30' row for some that will not be staked at all. I plan on setting a few out at the edge of the yard that will just have to fend for themselves. They may be eaten by the squirrels. If so, I will just eat them (the squirrels) back .

            It is my understanding the Roma and the SM are both plum tomatoes, but just different varieties. We grow both for different uses. The SM's are really good dehydrated (or fresh) and spread on pizzas. The Roma's are for our salads and sauces primarily. We've been starting both from seeds in peat pots, then transferred to the garden.

              Both plum tomatoes, not the same exact thing...but as you saw, easy to get. And, they make dynamite tomato sauce. My wife canned 15 quarts a couple years ago from a bumper crop we had. I'm hoping I can get these SM plants to produce well this year.....and I'll be sure to save some for generation #3.

                Selecting the best performers and using them for the next generation will eventually give you a strain that suits your circumstances. A slow but reliable breeding technique.

                Your tomato crop (and the fruit) should just continue to improve.

                Nothing more satisfying than your own produce preserved for later use and the bragging rights automatically come with it. So does the great flavour.

                  Make sure the seed is heirloom and not F1

                    Yeah, and the stupid horn worms too. But I don't plan on eating those gross things....

                          You have found the way to feed the starving masses, not to mention a good use for plastic soldiers.

                          The giant squirrel saves the world. Ha Ha.
