Some Quick Suggestions
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 about...
Today I started seeds for the [backyard beds](http://growstuff.org/gardens/maco-backyard-beds) [![Seed starting](https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7611/16712892090_301c105207.jpg)](https://www.flickr.com/photos/maco_nix/16712892090 "Seed starting by Mackenzie, on Flickr") The [onion](crop)s ar...

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 ...
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?
Does anyone use a gardening app they like? And what do you like about it? thanks
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 plastic...

Getting ready for spring!
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 plan](http://mackenzie.morgan.name/tmp/garden_plan...

[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, accidenta...

Compost and raised beds
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 n...
