Growstuff helps you track what you're harvesting from your home garden and see how productive it is.
Where do you buy your seeds? I live in Melbourne and I'm wondering where the best places to find heirloom seeds are? Farmer's market? Local nursery?
I have been concerned about my pea planting because we had some unseasonably cold weather after I planted them. But I see a few sprouts from the Cascadia and Mammoth Melting [snap pea](crop)s. The Green Arrow shelling [peas](crop) have no sprouts so I replanted them today. [Turnip](crop)s hav...Read more
I am a terrible gardener but every year around this time I get a bee in my bonnet anyway, so I have tried again! (I am also the world's laziest gardener, which doesn't help.) We've had late frosts (and snows!) this year, so since today finally felt like spring, I put in some dollar-store seeds...
Warm weather has arrived! Our spring has been unseasonably cool here, which was a marked change from last year when it was unseasonably warm! I looked at my gardening log from last year and I had happy tomato seedlings I'd wintersown in milkjugs already separated out and transplanted into red sol...
Yay, seeds arrived. Gonna go on a planting binge tomorrow. Especially since tomorrow is tomato day! Got: Golden [purslane](crop) [Watercress](crop) Yard long [bean](crop) Blackeye [pea](crop) Charentais [melon](crop) [Cantaloupe](crop) (Minnesota Midget) Shelling pea (I ran out) I've...Read more
Okay, I've had some failed gardening attempts in the past, but this year I'm going to try again, but in containers this time. (The community garden across the street from me has too little sun, so I'm going to put containers in the sunniest spots around my house, which is yardless.) If you hav...Read more
I just want to say hi to everyone who is checking out the site. Thanks for joining and helping to make Growstuff happen! Once the weather is right here in Melbourne and everything is a bit more settled, I have plans to start using the site for gardening myself. As a mostly indoorsy sunlight-av...
The garden (not just the edible portion but the lot of it) has really been exploding recently thanks to the rain and my seedlings are starting to look like identifiable seedlings instead of teeny tiny leaves. Took some photos today and they're up on Flickr. We're got the [golden beets](http://www...Read more
We just made another production push including the following features: - **improved logged-out homepage:** if you visit the homepage when you are signed out, you will now see a more dynamic page with community content on it, rather than the static page that was previously there. - **privates ...
The site is looking lovely! It's really exciting to be playing around with it. I noticed just a couple of very minor issues that might be worth modifying. Apologies if these are already listed in the tracker and I missed them. First, when I initially set up my account and went to edit my p...
I've recently seen a couple of interesting ideas for using lemon peel and I thought I'd post them here and see if anyone has others. 1. Peel the [lemon](crop)s with a fruit-peeler (i.e. into thin strips, avoiding pith) and then dry them in the oven on a low heat. Put the dried peels in a jar ...Read more
I've got some [rhubarb](crop) seedlings which I hope to plant out in containers. Does anyone have much experience with this? Any particular tips? I know rhubarb's meant to be a heavy feeder so I'm wondering particularly how to keep it happy in that regard. I've also heard it's a good companion to...Read more
