Garden Journal Weekly, 27th April 2022

Welcome back to the weekly newsletter. It's been a while what with the Garden Journal Challenge and @riverflows reverting to the comment version while on the move.

I can't not start with these cheerful tulips from @goldenoakfarm's garden. They've had quite and adventure over the years, yet still come back to delight even after their travels.

I got a little distracted over on @jacobpeacock's page where he does his daily updates on life living on the land as an apocalyptic style homesteader. I find it hard to pick just one of his posts out to highlight, so I'm just going to recommend paying him a visit and reading what you feel like.

Facing some homesteading obstacles over in South East Asia is @justinparke as they attempt to combat erosion on their newly acquired land, using whatever they have on hand, along with sowing any seeds they can find to try and get some root networks going to retain that soil.

As I strolled through the #gardening tag I was delighted to come across a new arrival to the Hive blockchain, @brittilicious from Saskatchewan. As summer fast approaches for many in the northern hemisphere, it's still a bit to early to grow in the Sub-Arctic so tidying, prepping and planning have been the order of the day.

Over in a completely different environment I came across @tydynrain's lava garden. Yes, you read that right and I was captivated too! They are growing in the remnants of the 2018 eruption and things are progressing quite nicely.

Sadly I need to wrap things up here and start making tea, but I couldn't leave without including @momogrow's post that I came across yesterday while browsing the HiveGarden Community. She's been experimenting with rooting and growing from stumps and cuttings, which I always admire, despite having little success myself with this kind of thing.


Thank you for joining me today. Beneficiaries will go to all of the mentioned authors and to @fenngen as a thank you for delegating to the @gardenhive account.

@riverflows would also like to announce that her pick for last week's comment edition was @andrastia.

I didn't realise you were building. You must also share your garden journey with us, warts and all. 😁

They're incredible and such a pretty picture. I had quite a fascination with tulips when I got to work my first garden. I don't think I ended up growing any in the end though, because I spent too much time window shopping and procrastinating. I really wanted some deep purple ones, which turned out to be hard to obtain.

Great to see @justinparke in on the game and @brittilicious - another person from that place I can't pronounce! @porters is from Saskatchewan too.

I didn't realise she was in Saskatchewan too! I was literally just thinking of her last night too, as I haven't seen her crop up for a while.

'Crop up' - look at you with your garden talk :P

Yes, hence short growing season, lots of snow, geese, and growlights inside!

I am honored to be featured here, and ashamed I've had little time for engagement the last few weeks.
