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

by maco,

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...

First garden in years!

by 14thAveGarden,

Yay! I just recently moved to a new place where the landlord doesn't care what we do and so theres two plots 240sqft and 380sqft (620sqft total!) My coworker is going to help me with everything and we will share everything. So far we dug up the lawn, tilled it, layered some chicken poopy straw...

Aloe vera

by Cesy,

[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

by juliet,

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...

Garden start, 2015

by Serene,

Dusting off my Growstuff account and getting ready to put things out in the garden. I don't have an especially green thumb, and I know nearly nothing about gardening, but I so want to grow food. And pretty things. Yes. Food and pretty things. My life story. Anyway. At work, I have a pot...

It was a long winter

by malissa,

I have dodged my garden for a year. The sorrel and kale have survived being completely ignored and unwatered over winter but for rain. One little spring onion has hung on in the tiniest form. Bless. The flat leaf parsley went to seed productively. The passionfruit vine tried to grow into the tree...

Herbs

by Cesy,

My herbs are all dead again. I can't figure out if it's lack of water, if they don't like the semi-shade, if I need to give them more food or compost or what. :( At least the aloe vera is flourishing. And, in true Murphy's Law, I haven't burned myself since I got it, so I haven't needed to ...
