The late sowing

by malissa,

Got some garden time in today, engaging in the usual jobs of slaughtering slugs, twisting the bok choy and watercress back into their pots so they reseed rather than drop seeds on the paving, tying up the sugar snap peas a bit more, watering and, at last, planting some things. I've planted little...

Plant lifecycle, suggested site usage

by jasond,

I'm trying to understand how my catalog of plants will need to be updated as my garden evolves. What happens to plants that are harvested, die, or get transplanted? Should I delete them from the site? Maybe "Harvested", "Died", "Transplanted In", and "Transplanted Out" categories for plants ...

I have a plan...

by fe2h2o,

a bit later than I'd intended (the heat/dry has started, so it's not really the time to be planting trees), but given our fig, pink lady apple and pomegranate are really needing to be out of their pots, we'll plant them anyway. The holdup has been in deciding just _where_ to plant them, still all...

Slow times... because I'm moving

by Skud,

The share house where I'm living is breaking up in December, and that means most of my spring/summer growing has been disrupted :( I started the spring with a lot of garden work and planted lots of things, but now I'm slowing down and trying to eat what's left, rather than start anything new. ...

Winter garden planning and planting

by neotoma,

I'm preparing for my winter garden right now, growing collard, pak choi, and tatsoi from seed, with spinach, lettuce, and chard from seedlings. I'm also starting broad beans now, as they overwintered well last year and came up fantastically in the spring. Since I'm in USDA Hardiness Zone 6b an...

Pressure-washer recovery

by Pedalcub,

A week or so ago, I came home to discover that my landlord's maintenance guy had pressure-washed the stoop where most of my seedlings were, damaging a number of my plants. Things are recovering slowly. * Of the sunflowers I planted, only one is still alive. When I set out most of them in pots,...

October roundup

by melannen,

So I was two days' drive away from my garden for most of the summer, leaving it in the care of the other people who live here. Now I'm back! I have no idea how the garden went while I was gone - they *claim* they watered, but everything (as usual for the end of summer around here) was looking pre...

Transplant carrots or not?

by FedericoMenaQuintero,

Do [carrot](crop) transplant well at all when they are small? I set up some rows of carrot seeds mixed with radish seeds, but I don't know if the carrots will be amenable to transplanting once they sprout. Has anyone done this?

Spiny bastard

by neotoma,

I finally found out what is growing in my flowerbeds along with my vegetables — [Solanum quitoense](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solanum_quitoense) — aka lulo, naranjilla, the spiny bastard. I bought a few of the fruit last year as a curiosity from a vendor at the farmer’s market— the seeds m...

Growing Garlic in Perth

by gotica,

Does anyone have tips for growing [garlic](crop) in Perth, WA? I planted several cloves back at the start of April and I'm waiting, waiting, waiting for the leaves to dry up and go brown but it's just not happening! I know we're in spring and having what feels like some nice winter weather at ...
