This week there were some really good garden blog posts to share, and some kind of funny gardening news. I particularly liked Sue’s post about comparing seedlings growing in potting soil from last year versus ones that had fresh potting mix. There’s also a corny gardening joke, and a bit about the nasturtium seed scarification project.
Great Garden Blog Reading
- Sue has a really interesting post about what happens when you break some gardening rules.
- Check out Jenny’s idea for making your own herbed butter with the herbs you’re growing in your garden.
- Adriana also tried out DoLeaf. Check out what she ordered and her thoughts on the online plant shop.
- Mike is expanding his balcony gardening repertoire to include flowers. I like his choices!
The Mouse & Trowel Awards
If you haven’t already nominated your favorite gardening blogs for a Mouse & Trowel award, today is the last day!
Nasturtium Seed Scarification Project
If you participated in our little nasturtium seed scarification study, let us know your results! All of my seeds sprouted except for the ones that I didn’t do anything to. Though in all fairness, after awhile I got bored waiting for them to germinate and may have forgotten to keep the soil moist.
Bad Gardening Joke
Why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.
And in Other News…
- It’s apparently more dangerous to garden in the U.K. than it is to ski. Who knew?
- The Philadelphia Inquirer says you can grow $1000 worth of vegetables for $100.
