Gardening?

How about a Gardening forum for growing food? Just a 'flash idea' that popped in my head.... felt worth mentioning.

Maverick - we have a forum for discussing growing herbs ... in a forum we recently added ... Alix posted an announcement about it in our Community Announcements Forum on 02 Jan 2008 ... Herbs and Spices Forum-Finally!

You can find our Herbs & Spices Forum under the Specific Chat & Recipes grouping between the Fruits & Nuts and the Pasta, Rice, Beans, Grains... forums. The area discussing growing herbs is in a sub-forum called Growing Herbs.

Sattie - believe it or not we've been kicking around the idea of a food gardening forum for several months.

Thanks Michael, but I already know where it is. I was referring to Satties idea and what could be included in it. If you did a gardening forum, then the growing herbs forum could be moved into it.

I'd love to see a gardening forum here. I was just thinking about that myself.
Thanks for bringing that up, Sattie!

LOL, Troooo!

however it`s somewhat encouraging to see, at least the DC staff will be in No doubt about the demand for such an area now.

so any efforts on their part will be met well ;)

I like that it's cool-season. I have PLENTY of cool season here!
I didn't re-plant it in the fall I was too busy, but I think I can get it in here as soon as the ground thaws and my tulips start popping.
OOOOOO I'm very excited for gardening season, and a new forum!!!!!!!

Another vote for a gardening forum. I'm a big-time organic gardener. Start virtually all my seeds indoors (in fact, will be starting in a couple of weeks) & grow all sorts of great stuff - heirloom tomatoes, hot & sweet peppers, different eggplants, greens (lettuce, Asian greens, stirfry mixes, etc.), brussels sprouts, beans, carrots, beets, okra, edible flowers, herbs. . . . . the list is virtually endless.

And of course, all of the above end up in countless recipes. ; )

Wow, and I thought this would fizzle in no time flat! I just started gardening last year and as someone else mentioned, I would like to grow as much as my own food as possible. So hey, I think the Gardening section would be a nice addition. Like my composting thread should be there!! wink wink!
