Follow the life of a plant.

April 6th, 2008 · 1 Comment

This blog began with an inspiration to follow the life, death, and resourcefulness of the plants in my garden.  I also wanted to find out what my fellow gardeners were up to as well.  I am working how to make this site a community place (in addition to just adding comments to my blog entries), but for now I will concentrate on what is happening in my garden.

Take for example, garlic.  I have some previous postings that discuss where I got the garlic for this years planting from, when I planted the garlic, how I planted the garlic, and have been taking photos at random times throughout its growing season.  Upon harvest and curing, I intend to post up a time line of “the life of my garlic crop”, for all growers in our zone 7 (but especially Long Islanders) to learn from.  Maybe I made a huge mistake and then I can hear back from some experienced paisano gardener who lives down the road from here.  Maybe I did it perfect and someone else can learn from it.  Anyway you slice it, this blog is meant to be a resource for continued learning and experiences in the garden.  I think I found a good technique for posting on this blog.  Take each plant, and write about it.  I intend to showcase the journey of the plant and how I was able to facilitate in its growth or facilitate in its death – whoops – yes I am guilty!   Each plant will have its own posting that I will update from time to time, once I have the next good piece of information about it.  Anyway, I look forward to sharing my experiences and learning from all of you too!

    Seems like a logical approach — I look forward to following the progress of many more plants. :)
