@Why Tea No prep of seeds. Just planted as instructed and watered immediately after. Kept moist through the days. Nothing ever grew.

2017-10-01 17:26:58 UTC  

Well that sucks. I've certainly had bad luck sometimes with seeds that just did nothing.

2017-10-01 17:27:25 UTC  

Looks like a tiny plant that subverts and takes over your whole garden.

2017-10-01 17:27:38 UTC  

For some plants we always buy seedlings or young plants, just to avoid the hassle/risk, despite the extra cost.

The wife's dad, however, is some sort of wizard with seeds and grows almost everything he can from seed.

2017-10-01 17:28:42 UTC  

Yeah. I just like more natural way of going by seed. But certainly has it's setbacks.

@Deleted User Low light. Makes sense, likes to be in the shadows as it wonders.

2017-10-01 18:21:49 UTC  

@GoyMeetsWorld If I remember correctly, that's exactly how it got it's name

2017-10-01 18:30:52 UTC  

Of course!

Does anyone have any good informative videos or online articles that would help me start looking into an in-home mini garden? I am in college, and have a small patio deck that I can do a small box garden or multiple plants. Thanks!

2017-10-03 16:39:28 UTC  

Have you seen these garden wall things? You can make it with old pallets to save $$

2017-10-03 16:39:41 UTC

2017-10-03 16:40:25 UTC  

That looks absolutely perfect and what I want to do. It's nearing the Winter though (Winter is coming lol), so would it be a good time to pick up the hobby now?

2017-10-03 16:40:29 UTC  

Or wait until the Spring?

2017-10-03 16:40:43 UTC  

What zone are you in?

2017-10-03 16:40:58 UTC  

I live in Harrisonburg, Virginia

2017-10-03 16:41:18 UTC  

Eastern Time Zone is that is what you're looking for

2017-10-03 16:44:29 UTC  

No hardiness zone. So you're in zone 6 which isn't good for winter planting without a greenhouse. You can look around for supplies now and start your seeds in late winter/early spring indoors.

2017-10-03 16:46:08 UTC  

That would be fantastic! Would you mind in I reached out to you again at the end of winter for some questions?

2017-10-03 16:49:42 UTC  

Not at all. Here's a pic of a pallet being used as a mini garden. Since pallets are free and everywhere it's a cheap easy way to do these gardens:

2017-10-03 16:50:36 UTC  

I really dig that! Awesome job!

2017-10-03 16:51:19 UTC  

That's not mine but I plan to do these mixed in with my garden to save space.

2017-10-03 17:11:39 UTC  

Very pretty

2017-10-03 17:14:58 UTC  

We love the pallet planters at my house. Be sure to use pallets that are not chemically treated. They have stamps on them with different designations.

2017-10-03 17:30:04 UTC  

^^^Yes. Whenever using wood to make a garden container make sure it's not chemically treated.

2017-10-03 19:54:18 UTC  

@Deleted User O wouldn't use pallets for gardening, fam. It's usually made from pressure treated lumber

2017-10-03 19:54:47 UTC  

Oops, didn't read all the way down

My bounty, from a 4x4 plot of soil

2017-10-08 22:31:06 UTC  

Does anyone have any suggestions for what to plant in a fall garden? I’m limited to an area that has practically full shade, so I’m restricted in what could successfully grow there.

2017-10-08 22:32:13 UTC  

If nothing is suitable for that spot, I could always purchase pots for my porch.

2017-10-09 01:01:26 UTC  

You could try some root vegetables like beets, carrots, or potatoes or some leafy greens. I know they don’t really need full sun but I’m sure they’d want at least a little bit still can’t hurt to try

2017-10-09 03:43:00 UTC  

Ok, I’ll see what I can do. 👍🏻 Thanks

My Japanese eggplants still going strong

2017-10-22 01:15:08 UTC  

Nice. Now bread it and fry to make is sufficiently not healthy 😃

2017-10-22 01:58:08 UTC  


2017-10-23 02:19:15 UTC  

Great eggplant!
