An example of "other" plantings

by Skud,

Just a note of something edible I planted, that won't ever be in our crops database, and would be a prime candidate for the "other" option we've talked about implementing: I just planted a big wide container with Diggers Club "Microgreen Winter Mix" which contains red russian [kale](crop), [tatso...

New features: homepage improvements, add older photos, "planted from", and more

by Skud,

[Jcaudle](http://www.growstuff.org/members/jcaudle) and I just pushed a bunch of new features to the site, including: - Improved homepage member display so the same people don't always show up (I got sick of seeing my own face there all the time!) - You can now add older photos from Flickr, n...

Please take our roadmap survey!

by Skud,

We're currently planning what we're going to work on next for Growstuff. We built the basics of the website, but there's so much more to do. If you've got a few minutes to spare, I'd really appreciate it if you'd take the time to answer [this survey](http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Z72P8HL). It ...

urban gardens in Kerala

by brainwane,

Check out [this article in Caravan](http://caravanmagazine.in/lede/terrace-farming): it seems that the state of Kerala has a "vegetable initiative for urban clusters". Kerala's State Horticulture Mission might be a good partner in localising Growstuff to Malayalam. :-)

Miracle of winter

by malissa,

Last year my potted hyacinths were a bit sad and not at all the lovely blue they should have been. No flowers at all! So I separated the bulbs and dug them in under the tree. Today two little shoots are peeking up out of the dirt. Hopefully all four have survived and there'll be some pretty flowe...

UI issues with finding the "request new crops" page

by mappings,

I emailed a link to Growstuff to a friend of mine. He commented that he couldn't find a link to the page to request a new crop, and since the fixed list doesn't include several things he grows, he gave up. I sent him a link to the Request New Crops page, but maybe the link could be featured more ...

Yard long beans vs black-eyed peas

by oakandsage,

I have been assuming that the beans growing in my garden (that are finally taking off and seem healthy, Y A Y) are yard long beans because they match the picture on the package, and I want yard long beans. But recently (partly because the immature pods are getting thicker but not getting longer, ...

link to list of known issues

by brainwane,

Should the [list of known issues](http://growstuff-prod.herokuapp.com/posts/skud-20130319-known-issues) be to the herokuapp.com URL rather than to [the post on growstuff.org](http://growstuff.org/posts/skud-20130319-known-issues)? I could see a reason to go either way. Completely off topic: I ...

Ordered a few things from the [Diggers Club](http://diggers.com.au/), some winter stuff and also some things I want to grow as soon as spring arrives (which is actually quite soon, especially if I start seedlings indoors first -- last frost here is early September, which means starting seedlings ...

"Teggi bean"

by corvi,

We bought a bunch of plant starts from a Korean greenhouse, and the owner threw in some free "teggi bean" starts. Anyone have any experience with teggi beans or ideas of what sort of soil, shade, etc they'd like?

Eep! What's this on my chard?

by Skud,

I've got some chard growing in containers in my backyard. It's been doing OK for a year, but now it's winter so it's only getting partial sun. Today I noticed that one container is looking a bit sadder than the other. When I went to examine it, I found this: ![something on my chard](http://...
