Posted by Skud in Growstuff Feedback & Support on June 06, 2013 at 23:01" and edited at June 06, 2013 at 23:01

Hi everyone, Last night [pozorvlak](/users/pozorvlak) and I did a code push to the site, which contains the final features we wanted in place before our public launch. These are, most importantly: - Crop photos: photos you post on your plantings now show up on the crops page. You can see... Read more
Clay & cherries

I'll be moving into my house in a week. I've been holding off on transplanting my seedlings, but today I thought I'd move the squash and just put it in the ground rather than wait til we can get raised beds built (decided to go with table-style raised beds, made from cast off pallets, with a...

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.

Beans!! Beans all 'round!!   1

Posted by black_hound on June 02, 2013 at 19:16" and edited at May 27, 2019 at 05:06

I planted my [bush beans](crop) and [pole beans](crop) on May 27th. They have all germinated and have their first set of leaves and are at least an inch tall. Probably a bit more. Today is June 2? GO BEANS.
Too Late for Starting? - Northeast USA   3

Posted by erin in Growing Stuff on June 01, 2013 at 17:20" and edited at May 27, 2019 at 05:07

I live in Massachusetts in the US, and just found out that I do, indeed, have space for planting in the giant garden that is apparently shared between the neighborhood. Is it too late to start [zucchini](crop)s and [watermelon](crop)s? What about sauce [tomato](crop)es? I've never tried to start... Read more

Seeking advice on fledgling plant & bushy thyme plant   3

Posted by ribbonknight on June 01, 2013 at 15:09" and edited at May 27, 2019 at 05:07

The first plant is a [cucumber](crop), Mexican sour [gherkin](crop), which I've grown from seed. Firstly, yay, the things I grew from seed this year have been way more successful than last year! The cucumber looks like this: ![alt... Read more

Fava Bean -- ripe or not?   1

Posted by neotoma on May 28, 2013 at 15:23"

I planted several fava bean plants last fall, mainly as a way to get something into my newly dug flowerbed. Now they've flowered and set pods. Does anyone know how to tell when fava bean pods are ripe for picking? I've never grown fava beans before, so I really have no idea.
Season change   2

Posted by oakandsage on May 28, 2013 at 01:48"

Well, it looks like this is the end of the line for this year's (massive sarcasm quotes) "cool season" here. Pea production appears to be slowing down significantly, and I'm pulling out the last of the lettuce while some is still edible. Much of it is too bitter to eat. New lettuce stopped... Read more
Lessons from the spring garden   2

Posted by black_hound on May 27, 2013 at 19:41"

The leaf crops did marvelously. In fact, they are still growing strong since temps have been below average. The peas and root crops were a disaster. Nothing bulbed up particularly well and the peas were all leaf and no bloom. Apparently the nitrogen content of my soil is too high for root crops.... Read more
Yes, definitely tomatoes, in fact.   1

Posted by melannen on May 27, 2013 at 04:39"

Remember that hopeful post I made about possibly some tomatoes coming up volunteer? That has since developed into 'WTF DO I DO WITH ALL THESE TOMATO PLANTS'. There were thirty-six of them over two inches high as of this afternoon, and increasing. I'm scared. I got one of those... Read more
New to gardening

Posted by rubygeek on May 21, 2013 at 12:00" and edited at May 27, 2019 at 05:08

Hello, I've been programming since I was 13 and I love Ruby have done it the past 7 years. I recently got into gardening because my husband said I needed to do something besides "code" :) And I am finding it super fun! I wanted a house plant, I have two big window seats. I think Ivy s are... Read more
Arugula flowers   1

Posted by amy on May 20, 2013 at 03:26" and edited at May 20, 2013 at 03:27

I got way too busy for a couple of weeks, and it decided to get hot right in the middle of that time -- so of course various things in my early salad stuff have bolted like crazy. Arugula flowers are, first of all, surprisingly beautiful. I know this isn't meant to be a site for ornamental... Read more
