This weekend I had two full days to really focus on the yard, and I made the most of it. With the intermittent help of several others over the course of the weekend, I got both easement planter boxes filled with compost and soil, cleaned up and weeded the alley, got the stump pulled from the...

Some Quick Suggestions

Posted by evermorian in Growstuff Feedback & Support on March 23, 2015 at 22:09"

Glad to see this up and running. Some quick suggestions from my initial pass at adding crops: After I add a crop, there should be a button to add another on the confirmation page. I rarely plant one thing. When I type in the full name of a crop (e.g., "cinnamon basil") I get an error... Read more

Establishing my garden

I moved in to my new house in July and we've been planning on growing food but wanted to get the inside of the house in order first. Where we are now: The front and back yards are almost completely grass. The front yard has one area with nice dirt, landscape fabric underneath, that's growing... Read more

I just purchased an artichoke plant in the nursery and from my research it looks like its a cool weather crop. Should I even try to plant it in central texas?

Almost ready to start seeds

Today I went down to my local garden center, having measured the little closet that houses my sump pump, to get seed-starting supplies. I got two "Jump Start" T5 lighting rigs. I also picked up a Jump Start heat mat for seedlings to add to the one I already had. Add some trays and one new... Read more

I've got seeds either on-hand or ordered for just about everything I'm starting from seed this year. I've been working out what I want to plant, and this is the plan I've come up with for the 72 square feet of my backyard raised beds: ![garden... Read more

[aloe vera](crop) is rapidly becoming my favourite unkillable plant, taking over from spider-plants because not only does it seed everywhere, survive me forgetting to water it for weeks, survive me over-watering in guilt when I remember, and not appear to care whether it has sun, shade,...

Compost and raised beds

Posted by juliet on February 14, 2015 at 14:52"

Dug out half the compost heap again -- the fruit trees (apple, fig, cherry) and grape vines all need a good feed. When I made the first four raised beds (3 years ago), I mis-measured a bit, and while one of them fits neatly into the available gap between the paving slabs, the other three do... Read more
