Learning to love the delete key

Hi, Folks!

The bleeding of "on-topic" item into "off-topic" items is a fairly common phenomenon on Internet mailing list -- and even more common on the agriculture/gardening lists.

As this list is quiet compared to the major small-farming/sustaintable ag lists, it might be well to take a page from them and when you believe that topics are listing (pun! ;-D) off-topic, to simply delete the post you believe is off topic and then immediately raise a query that you believe is *on* topic.

As gardening/ag folks tend to adore the sounds of their own keyboards clacking, the list will immediately be full of replies that will not on be "on-topic," but might actually be useful in your own garden! The "off-topic" item will be lost in the shuffle.

The joy of the Internet is that you can delete anything that comes into your Inbox that you don't want to read and no one will be offended. Raise what you do want to talk about and there won't be time to deal with "side issues".

In that spirit, has anyone successful raised chickpeas outside of the Southwest? Seeds of Change just sent our community garden packets and *packets* of the stuff and I haven't a clue what to do with them.
