Finally planting things!

by maco,

When I bought the house last year, the date I took ownership was pushed back about a month due to paperwork red tape. Consequently, everything died waiting for transplant from little seedling cups to big dirt. Over the winter, my back yard was driven over by a large truck when the old shed was...

wasabi & horseradish in containers

by wrdnrd,

I've been growing horseradish in a container for about 7 or 8 years now (it especially loves being in the self-watering container). I've been growing wasabi in a (non-self-watering) container for 2 years. Both do just fine -- surviving thru' the winter, putting out a fantastic amount of leaves ...

Sprouts!

by vmbrasseur,

There are sprouts! The mustard spinach is starting to appear in [The Nursery](http://growstuff.org/gardens/vmbrasseur-the-nursery). The red kale, wild arugula, and marjoram are still pending, but I'm very pleased to have _some_ sort of seedling action going on.

Killer apps

by oakandsage,

Tomatoes are "the thing" in my summer garden - they're what I plan everything else around, they're what gets me motivated to plant. Sure, I also grow and enjoy squash, eggplant, and other stuff, but tomatoes are my killer app, the thing that keeps me gardening when I'm blah and unmotivated and in...

Garden-level photos

by vmbrasseur,

Currently it appears I can only add planting-level photos. My garden is so small one photo covers the entire thing, so I'd be posting the same photo for each planting. Would it be possible to get photos at the garden level?

New Feature/UX: Add "Plant something" to planting summary page

by vmbrasseur,

I've just planted my (tiny, maybe ill-fated, but still mine) container garden on my balcony. So I click "Plant" on the home page, fill in the resulting form, and am presented with a nice summary of the crop I just planted. The problem is that I have 6 different crops to log/plant. It's not...

by wrdnrd,

On 3/16 (sun.) i tried starting some hot pepper seeds: - Big Jim @ 5 - fish pepper @ 2 This past weekend i saw that 1 of the big Jim had sprouted! Amazing, since this is a pepper the spouse bought dehydrated at the farmers market, so to have one of them sprout is amazing. Very inte...

Starting to plant; and rearranging

by juliet,

Shifted the mini greenhouse against the fence earlier in the week; today stacked up some paving slabs by the back door (where greenhouse previously was) and put some herb pots on them. P requests most-used herbs (especially winter herbs) to go here so I shall have to think about this and maybe pl...

Discovery day in the garden

by malissa,

The invasive, sunlight blocking, and previously thought by me to be a fruitless wonder of a passionflower vine that my neighbours have inflicted on the fence and my tiny garden, turns out to be [Passiflora caerulea](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passiflora_caerulea). I was going to write to next...

Ready or not, here I come

by inkstone,

Due to the all the snow and cold we've had this winter (comparatively, for this region), I've been lax about prepping for the coming growing season. But I had some time (and containers) so I started wintersowing a bunch of seeds. ![8 wintersown containers](http://distilleryimage10.ak.instagra...

February harvest!

by melannen,

All of you Australians are making me jealous again, so I decided that if life gives you a Minnesota winter, you make maple syrup, and tapped the big sugar maple out front. I put one tap in last Friday afternoon - right after what will hopefully be our last big snow - and have gotten about eigh...

Hope Springs Eternal

by shadawyn,

Right around New Year's Day I start itching to plant things. It's a little ridiculous, because even in our mild Seattle winters, cool weather crops go out--earliest--in February, but more realistically in March-April (or at least, that was my experience from last year). We bought a house at t...
