Last One

I'm not entirely sure this is the right time to post the last edition of the Garden journal Challenge for 2019. After all, a lot of you will probably be busy planning and prepping for the upcoming festivities.

Still, I didn't want to end this year without a challenge, so here we go.

There's still nothing going on in my own garden. I finally removed all dead plants from the raised beds, and added a layer of compost to them.

I'm thinking about sowing some peas and beans to overwinter in the ground. That way, there will at least be growing something in spring. Being active in the garden won't be an option for me, and although I don't mind weeds, it will be nice to have something edible too.

I'm really not looking forward to a gardening season without a garden. The growing room looks empty and sad. December is when I normally start to germinate seeds in my propagator, but that propagator is not even plugged in at the moment. The aloe vera plants won't get any company this year.

But hey, it is what it is. And if everything goes well, the sky will be the limit in the future. I'm holding on to that thought. :0)

As you can tell, I really need my garden-fix. And I'm counting on you to provide it.

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.

🏆 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 10 Steem prize.
(Since SBD hasn't been printed for a while and I've run out of it, it's just easier to reward in Steem instead of SBD and avoid the hassle of exchanging)

I will also choose 2 random participants who will each receive 2 Steem.
I'm not giving out SteemBasicIncome shares anymore. By sending the random winners the liquid Steem, they can decide for themselves whether they would like to spend it on SBI or not.

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.

Just saw this as I got back from my travels visiting family for the holidays - nothing much has changed since my November garden with the veggies in the indoor garden continuing to supply us with fresh food for the winter! I'm getting ready to start some new seedlings to replace some of the plants that aren't producing as well and plants that I want to try and see how they do in the indoor garden. I'll be sharing that in the January Steemit Garden Journal Challenge.
Thanks for keeping this going! Love it!

New seedlings ... exciting times :0)
