Hello, my name is Steven Gliebe.
I’ve been fortunate to work professionally with WordPress for some time now. I’ve been a personal user of WordPress for about 15 years. My first WordPress blog used the Blix theme, which hasn’t been updated in a decade. 😀
I enjoy gardening, especially growing fruit. Blackberries every year and presently waiting for my first harvest of peaches, nectarines and plums from my young trees I have seeds in the mail for cantaloupe and watermelon right now.
I’m quite glad to see WP Mainline up and running and excited to see what the future holds for it. Press on, Jeff!March 12, 2020 at 11:01 pm #3461JeffroKeymaster
Welcome to the Mainline! Fresh Blackberries picked right off the bush are awesome. In fact, any fruit or vegetable picked off the vine and consumed is a unique experience and it’s the best. When you harvest your fruits, send us a picture here on the forum. I plan on adding a General category so everyone can discuss and share things that are not WordPress related.March 13, 2020 at 1:09 pm #3576mperaltyParticipant
I’ve never had fresh off the tree peaches before. Growing up I used to harvest wild salmon berries. They were amazing. I miss eating real fresh fruit. When my wife and I move into our house later this year, maybe I’ll start growing fruit again.
I remember the blix theme, It was very popular for people not wanting to use a default theme. 🙂 What do you do with WordPress now?March 16, 2020 at 11:20 am #3646
Growing up I used to harvest wild salmon berries.
That sounds fun. Where’d you grow up?
Congrats on your new house! I wish I had planted my trees years earlier. Research what works in your area. Home Depot got the best of me a few times before I found what was [hopefully] right for my climate and soil type. It turns out trees can be shipped in boxes just fine. 😉March 16, 2020 at 4:19 pm #3671mperaltyParticipant
I spent many of my formative years on a small set of islands off the coast of British Columbia in Canada. I’m a military brat and my father was sent there to work at a listening/communications post. It rained 300 days out of the year when I lived there, and we could easily fish for salmon and halibut. I didn’t appreciate it as a child and youth as it was hard growing up there for many reasons, but I think back to the scenery now and wish I was there…
Thanks! I can’t believe we are buying into the market at such a crazy time. We put the offer on our house when there was less than 60,000 cases of Covid worldwide and most of them were in China…
I will definitely look into what to plant here. We don’t have a very big property though, so it’ll probably end up being a bunch of fruit bushes instead of trees.March 16, 2020 at 4:36 pm #3686
That is a special upbringing. I long for a nice piece of land with some nature most of the way around. I’ve only known the suburbs all my life. Check out Grow a Little Fruit Tree: https://www.amazon.com/Grow-Little-Fruit-Tree-Easy-Harvest/dp/1612120547. This is the approach I’m trying.
