The Big Nothing

There's absolutely nothing going on in my own garden at the moment. All that's left of this year's gardening season is trying to come up with recipes for chayote, yacon, sweet potatoes and Jerusalem Artichoke. That's kinda fun too, but not as fun as the real deal: growing them.

Whereas during other winters, I would be thinking about buying new seeds for next spring, maybe sow some sweet peppers already, there's none of that this winter. There's another back surgery coming up in February or March, so I can forget about next year's garden. I guess I'll have to focus on other things to make sure I don't miss it too much.

So, more than ever, I'm craving to find out what's going on in your gardens, on your balconies, on your farms or in your growing/living rooms.

Welcome to the SteemIt Community Garden Journal Challenge, which encourages you to share your monthly (indoor) garden/balcony updates with your fellow Steemians and create your own garden journal.


A Shoutout To Our Previous Contributors.

We've had different gardeners joining this challenge in every edition. The participants' base follows the seasons in the different parts of the world.

Last edition, we could enjoy the garden updates of

I’d like to thank them all for entering this challenge, and I'd like to invite them to post a new update.

This challenge is open for everyone who is growing plants or crops - indoors or outdoors.

If you haven’t joined before, feel free to start now. The more the merrier! There are plenty of people who are enjoying to see what's going on in other people's garden, farm or balcony.

Please also include a link back to this challenge somewhere in your post.

You can include whatever you want in your post, but please remember that the pictures should be the most important aspect of your post.


Image Source

Show us how your plants, herbs, flowers, succulents or vegetables are doing. Share what you’ve been doing in your garden, on your farm or on your balcony. Don't forget to let us know if you are dealing with things like fungus, caterpillars, aphids, and - even more important - hów you’re dealing with those.

In short, tell us the story of your garden.


🏆 The Rewards

As always, all entry posts will receive an upvote from my personal account.

As an extra reward, I'll be setting up a @steem-bounty in the comments section. Everyone who posts a comment that includes a link to a valid entry will get a share of that bounty.



🏆 The Winners

When this post reaches payout, I will select the two entries that I liked most.

I’ll reward the top 2 posts with a 3 SBD prize.

I will also choose 2 random participants who will each receive 2 #steembasicincome shares.

Prizes will be given out once I get the winners post up, which will be after this post has reached payout. Make sure you submit your entry before that time.


Grab That Camera

Are you still reading? What are you waiting for? Grab that camera and go make some awesome pics of your (indoor) garden, your balcony or wherever you are growing your plants, herbs, flowers or crops.

Show off your green thumb, or the lack of it, and create another chapter in your very own garden journal for 2019.


I'll can't wait to see your updates!

I made resteems of your post, but for some fault, in Steemit, the resteems does not appear on my page. I had to look for its publication in the people I follow.

My garden has been a bit neglected of late as I have been a bit unwell, hope to still get some of my seedlings planted out though, got lots of kale, spinach, beetroot and carrot I want to get in there, luckily it doesn't get too cold here over the winter xx

Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well, @trucklife-family.

I'm excited to hear about this. Thank you for tagging me @simplymike. 😍

I hope you'll manage to get an entry out. Looking forward to it. :0)

With regret I will miss this month to post not because there is nothing in my little garden to show, but because I am on holiday far from home.
Next month it will be winter, plants will go indoors and I will see which ones will be the survivors.

Meanwhile I will be happy to read and see the posts of the other gardeners.

Enjoy your holiday, @nelinoeva 👍

Fresh and healthy

Thanks for the mention @simplymike. At this point in the growing season, the only thing growing are the icicles hanging off of the roof edge.
Good luck with your pending back surgery.

Same here. There's a lost flower in the greenhouse, but everything else is gone :0)

Ha ha, I remember those times of the year where there is literally nothing to do in the garden. Enjoy the rest time Mike :)

Thanks, @raj808

Saludos amiga. En cualquier momento tomo mis fotos nuevas del jardín.
Gracias por invitarme de nuevo. Un abrazo.

Looking forward to it, @gertu :0)


@simplymike, Same here. At this moment nothing is happening but this time we will grow Aloe Vera. This plant is really a blessing for sure.

Keep bringing this awesome series and have a wonderful time ahead. Stay blessed.
