Is It October Already? More Garden Journal Fun on Hive!


I think I'm turning into a plant. Between alternating a weekly garden newsletter with @minismallholding (last issue here, learning about herbs in The Herbal Hive with @trucklifefamily and catching up with great plant based recipes in Plant Power community with @justinparke, I'm beginning to wonder if I'm sprouting buds and growing leaves. But I feel like these corners are my favourite corners on HIVE. You can't go wrong with plant-y content, right?

Me this week.

If you haven't got in early like @edprivat doing his garden journal at the end of September (I hope you have an early October one racked up, lavender boy) you might like to write a post and let us know what you're doing in your garden for this first week of October.

Never mind if your tomatoes are already sauced - you can post about your garden clean up, or what you'd do differently this year, reflecting on the season just gone. You might even like to plan your next summer's garden, or talk about your indoor garden efforts. Of course, if you're in the southern hemisphere, like me, you'll be busy coaxing the seedlings from the soil and chasing away bugs (damn you, slaters!).

Prizes This Week Totalling 25 HIVE!

Due to the generosity of @amberyooper (5 HIVE) and @shanibeer (10 HIVE), we still have a kitty of 35 HIVE to mete out over the next few weeks, plus I'll throw in a tenner as well this week! If you'd like to contribute, feel free. It's so lovely to have so many generous people support the gardening community on HIVE.
