How to save seeds

by shiny,

Planting outdoors & fruit trees

by maco,

Today I transplanted the [cabbage](crop) and [onion](crop) seedlings outside and planted seeds for: [arugula](crop), [garlic](crop) (well, cloves, not seeds--forced in the fridge), mesclun salad mix, [kale](crop), [cauliflower](crop), and [beet](crop)s. Some of these (cauliflower, beets, mesclun)...

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...

This year (2014)

by Mad_Martha,

This year wasn't a particularly good year in my garden. Due to my ill health through spring and summer, the only things that got planted were the [potato](crop)es, [onion](crop)s and [elephant garlic](crop), all of which were planted either late last year or early in the spring. I'm refusing to...
