by sesmith,

The garden (not just the edible portion but the lot of it) has really been exploding recently thanks to the rain and my seedlings are starting to look like identifiable seedlings instead of teeny tiny leaves. Took some photos today and they're up on Flickr. We're got the [golden beets](http://www…

This was going to contain much more whining about our landlords

by Skud,

… but I'm tired of it, so I won't. I just wish our mutual understanding of the term "quiet enjoyment" involved fewer inspections and more autonomy in the garden.

Crop page suggestions

by maco,

I only have one for now, but for a bigger mouse target, I think the image, not only the crop name, should be linkified.
