FAQ: How to get rec.gardens FAQs

Post by kl.. » Thu, 04 May 1995 04:00:00



In keeping with the general air of slight disorganization in rec.gardens
(but there's a REASON that there's a tomato seedling in the begonia
bed... just let me remember why...  ;-) ), our FAQs are not "official
FAQs" (i.e., archived at rtfm.mit.edu, nor autoposted to news.answers),
but instead reside at sunsite.unc.edu, where you need to dig for them
a bit.  Here's how:  (from a post by Larry London).
