Some of these (cauliflower, beets, mesclun)...

Coming together

by shawnacscott,

This weekend I had two full days to really focus on the yard, and I made the most of it. With the intermittent help of several others over the course of the weekend, I got both easement planter boxes filled with compost and soil, cleaned up and weeded the alley, got the stump pulled from the coni...

A slow start to summer

by Skud,

I'm so very, very behind on my gardening. I was travelling heaps and had lots of other commitments through October/November, which is peak spring planting time here, and nothing got done. I've come to the realisation that if I'm going to do work that involves that sort of travel, I need to cut ...

Arugula flowers

by amy,

I got way too busy for a couple of weeks, and it decided to get hot right in the middle of that time -- so of course various things in my early salad stuff have bolted like crazy. [Arugula](crop) flowers are, first of all, surprisingly beautiful. I know this isn't meant to be a site for ornam...

Transplant day!

by inkstone,

I originally wanted to do this yesterday but it rained in the morning so that kinda put a damper on things. So I did it all today instead! A bunch of the seeds I wintersowed in the milk jugs and soda bottles were getting crowded so it was time to move them to their bigger (permanent) container...
