Hi, There is a conversation going on at the lumberjocks site, about people misusing the Projects area for pics other than completed projects. This got me wondering…in the future, what constitutes a project here? If I’m in the middle of building a flower bed or patio, for example, do I post pics in projects only when it’s done? Do works in progress, random plant/flower/critter/etc pics go in blogs? (can you post pics in a blog?). I love to take pics of plants & their inhabitants, and I want to post them in the right spot. Thanks!

My point of view:
well this is where GardenTenders differs from LumberJocks!
A garden is always transforming.

So you have options.
1. You can create a blog, documenting your journey, posting pictures of sightings
2. You can post the project in stages (each “finished” step)
3. A combination of both.

If you look at our stats, we tend to use our blogs the most frequently.

I have settled into a routine that works well for me, at this point in time. I blog my plan and work accomplishments and then post the transformation stages in the projects as well. (ex. my pond project)

If a particular plant is a special project for me, then I post it as a project.

As we grow, we will have to take a closer look at the layout/contents of GardenTenders. For now, we are flexible.

Thanks, Debbie! The flexiblilty and friendliness is a huge part of what I like here. I don’t do rules well – lol. I feel our internal and external worlds are multi-connected and constantly shifting, so it’s hard for me to pigeon hole things. Wow. Now I can tell I was born in the 60’s ; )

PS – love those dahlias. I’m going to try some this year for the first time, after years of just thinking about it…

Try it. You’ll love it.

Just remember that they are NOT hardy to zone 6. The tubers have to come indoors for the winter, but I’ve posted several links about that.

our communities are pretty relaxed as a general rule. Sometimes some of the members need a little more structure :)

I look forward to watching the story unfold about your dahlias to come :)

So that’s what it means to be born in the 60’s? I always wondered why I felt so lost. Too young to be part of the hippie generation/boomers, too old to be gen X. The lost generation, willing to break every rule of those who came before us or after us…. Hmmm, Julian Assange was born in 1971.
That’s it I’m going to post my peaches as a project anyway….
