One day my sun will come

by malissa,

Slowly, slowly the sun line is moving down the fence. It shouldn't be too long before my garden gets some direct sunshine and springs into life. I picked up some seedlings from the Slow Food Market at Abbotsford Convent today: dwarf kale, bok choy, chervil and Tom Thumb lettuce, and planted t...

It's definitely a di...

Small grape vine - any tips for transplanting?

by FedericoMenaQuintero,

The other day I got a small grape vine (about 40 cm tall) from a nursery. It seems to be four cuttings of about the same length. It's in the black plastic bag right now, and I want to transplant it to the garden. I'm a bit paranoid about the preciousness of grapes, so I want to be careful ab...

Tomatoes gone wild

by oakandsage,

So I have three volunteer tomatoes around where the Sunsugar was last year, and I didn't have much else there so I figured I'd just let them grow and see what happened. They've got small yellow fruit slightly larger than that of Sunsugar, but just barely - but it's sort of irregular. Not as irreg...

How do I know when carrots are ready?

by FedericoMenaQuintero,

Lacking X-ray vision, you know. Even if I dig a little with my finger and the top seems the normal diameter, it may be that the whole root is not ready yet. But how can I tell?

Basil is flowering - how do I save seeds?

by FedericoMenaQuintero,

All of our basil plants are flowering. How do I go about collecting / saving seeds from them? Are they like onions where you do the wrap-flower-in-plastic-bag trick?

Planting chilli peppers in Growstuff

by dasbero,

Hi everyone! I'm trying to enter all the plants I'm growing this year and I've run into a bit of trouble, because I don't know the name for what I would call chilli peppers ("Peperoni" in German). I looked for "chilli", "pepper", "capsicum" in the list, but now I'm out of ideas. Bero.

Crossposting to social media using IFTTT

by Skud,

[If this, then that (IFTTT)](http://ifttt.com) is a service that lets you glue together different online services. I just set up an IFTTT recipe to tweet whenever I post something here on Growstuff, and I'm about to set up recipes to tweet when I plant things or list seeds available for trade. I'...
