Is It October Already? More Garden Journal Fun on Hive!

in HiveGarden2 months ago (edited)


I think I'm turning into a plant. Between alternating a weekly garden newsletter with @minismallholding (last issue here, learning about herbs in The Herbal Hive with @trucklifefamily and catching up with great plant based recipes in Plant Power community with @justinparke, I'm beginning to wonder if I'm sprouting buds and growing leaves. But I feel like these corners are my favourite corners on HIVE. You can't go wrong with plant-y content, right?

Me this week.

If you haven't got in early like @edprivat doing his garden journal at the end of September (I hope you have an early October one racked up, lavender boy) you might like to write a post and let us know what you're doing in your garden for this first week of October.

Never mind if your tomatoes are already sauced - you can post about your garden clean up, or what you'd do differently this year, reflecting on the season just gone. You might even like to plan your next summer's garden, or talk about your indoor garden efforts. Of course, if you're in the southern hemisphere, like me, you'll be busy coaxing the seedlings from the soil and chasing away bugs (damn you, slaters!).

Prizes This Week Totalling 25 HIVE!

Due to the generosity of @amberyooper (5 HIVE) and @shanibeer (10 HIVE), we still have a kitty of 35 HIVE to mete out over the next few weeks, plus I'll throw in a tenner as well this week! If you'd like to contribute, feel free. It's so lovely to have so many generous people support the gardening community on HIVE.

I hope I'm not too late for the garden selfie.

And here's my entry.

Oh what a gorgeous picture! And no, you aren't too late at all - I'm running behind as well!

Hahaha! Lol 😄 ❤

By the way I forgot to mention, thanks for the tip. 😁

Not sure if I'll have a post this month, but here's a fresh figgy Friday selfie just in case. Pulled off a whopping four of these beauties this afternoon! 😋

In others words, FffFfffff!

Oh god! More work! It never ends! Ok I'll figure out something 😁, to be honest my garden look currently like Hiroshima, but maybe I can pull out a nihilistic thesis about the futility of existence...

I have also tons of chicken poop, maybe I can frame the best looking ones and make an exhibition, would that be shitposting?

You couldn't do a shitpost if you tried. Oh no.. was that a challenge? Just please don't smoke it..

Just please don't smoke it


You do manage to do an awful lot @riverflows! For that, I am grateful.

Here's a tour of the garden in my new house, and the beginning imaginings of next year's veggie patch.

I dont know how I do it lol

Here's my post.
I'm not sure if I want to do a garden selfie, when you get to my age, selfies can be scary... 😀

Ha I know what you mean - I need a big hat, a chicken and some shadows...

I loved the caption! hehe

Cool Pic!


Welcome to my Squash Factory! LOL


I'm considering the selfie haha sounds cool! I wonder if it should be the header or anywhere else on the post


So fast!

I was actually writing, and I saw the notifications from you 😀

Haha, awesome!

LOL I love your first gif..
Make be you've become a plant.
I haven't written here in a long time.. my garden is not doing all that great.
let me write about my worries lol maybe that would help.

Oh yes you can write about the bad times too! Yes I was laughing at that gif too 😂

Hey River

Thanks so much for including me, I'm going to share a recent garden adventure soon. I don't know how you do it all, but your dedication is contagious.

Have a beautiful day :)

I wanted to do a particular selfie but I smashed my knee falling off my scooter. So, next time will have to do. Now you have the added expectation of acrobatic selfies 😁
Here's my post anyways

Oh no!! I'm so sorry! Between cats and scooters, you seem really up against it! Hope you are better soon.

Oh there's never a dull moment in my life. Thank you 😁

Im so doing a selfie tonight! It has been awhile lol

Yay!!! Do it!

Always tell myself that im gonna start doing my garden. It literally looks like a jungle and i ain't using the space. Ever little post like that gives me a little burst of motivation.

Do it!!! It's so rewarding - plus then you can join in the challenge x

Promises are a debt, so here's my post!! selfie included!! I hope you like it ;)

Fantastic! Thankyou

thank YOU!

I just took some photos of our garden remnants the other day! Sad that we are in the death cycle of the plants up here but such is life. We will have some good rebirth next year! Good part is the little man enjoyed the whole experience and kept me on target with watering and feeding the garden so that to me is worth it.

Oh yay - did you post about it? At the start of the month we do these challenges so always save something for then...

Not yet! I have lots of things in draft and plenty of posts scheduled. Starting a new job soon so I’m trying to get in a rhythm of being several days ahead on my posts so that I don’t fall behind on account of the new job. I’ll probably get it out there next week!

Oh goodness, don't let HIVE get in the way of something that actually pays hah!
