Hello from a fellow Alabamian,
You've come to the right place.  We just love this site and think you will too.  Good folks, family oriented, and lots of GOOD INFO.
We are in S. Central Alabama, just above the Alabama/Florida state line due south of you.  The Bees are really working here today.

Hello Imehaffey,
I am in McCalla just off the I-459 /I-59 junction. I am just getting started this spring so I'll be glad to pass on what I learn from beginners experience & the forums.
