New features: photos, crop improvements, RSS and more!

We just pushed a number of new features to the site, including:

  • Photos! You can now add photos to plantings, using Flickr. Stay tuned for lots of improvements in this area in the coming weeks. (Yes, we know you can only see the most recent few photos in your Flickr stream, for instance, and that there's not yet any way to delete them... we're on it!)
  • Crop improvements: we've done a bunch of behind-the-scenes work to improve the crop management interface, and to set up the hierarchical crops that we've been talking about for a while now. Shortly we'll be recruiting some "crop wranglers" to help us manage all the crops. Think that sounds like fun? Let me know.
  • RSS: we've made sure that markdown formatting appears properly in RSS feeds, and added an RSS feed for comments
  • Bugfix: don't allow blank garden names. Any old gardens that somehow managed to get a blank name have been renamed to "Garden"

There'll be more soon, so keep an eye on this forum or follow Growstuff on Twitter for updates.

Crop wranglers? ...I could be persuaded. I can be very good at anal and thorough listings of plant types and hierarchies - is that what you're sort of after?

Well, we've finally got the crop wrangling tools working well enough to bring in the volunteers. @tiki19, @naturedance, I've contacted you by PM!
