in gardenjournal2019 •  2 months ago

Mixed Feelings

August is coming to an end. I always have mixed feelings about this time of the year. Sure, it's fun to go shopping in my garden when we want to throw a BBQ, but with every veggie I pick, I realize the end of the gardening season is near. To be honest, I would choose growing over harvesting any day of the year.

Lol, I guess that makes me a grower, more than a gardener.

Anyway, for a lot of you, the gardening season is about to start. Woo! The excitement of spring coming closer... :0) Others are probably in the same position I am:harvesting, maybe sowing some veggies for fall... I want to hear all about it...

So, once again, I welcome you to the SteemIt Community Garden Journal Challenge, which encourages you to share your monthly (indoor) garden/balcony/homestead 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

@porters, @growsomechange, @minismallholding, @caab, @enjar, @ericburgoyne, @briarch, @erikah, @bengy, @plantstoplanks, @abitcoinskeptic, @astrizak, @pastoragus, @travoved, @nelinoeva, @leeart and @mdosev.

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 any kind of 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. That includes me too. Watching all these updates always puts a smile on my face.

This is the 16th edition, and - surprise, surprise - no changes have been made to the rules:

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

All entry posts will receive a 100% 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 small upvote from me and thus a share of that bounty when this post reaches payout.



🏆 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.

Just like last month, I will also give out 4 SBI shares: 2 randomly chosen entries will get 2 SBI shares each!!

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 tried to get my entry in before the hardfork but I was a few minutes late and it wouldn't go through. Just now I got through on Steempeak so here it is post hardfork -

A month of being away from the garden... and now I get to see how it has fared!

Phew, worried I would miss this one! Hope you get a laugh from it.

I've been taking some photos of my garden wondering when the August GardenJournal2019 challenge post would come out. I've been gone for quite a number of days in August but amazingly the garden did okay. I'll get my post together for before the Hardfork on Tues.

Can't wait :0)

Honestly I have been having so much fun preparing my garden for spring full stop there is so much to do still. I wish I could talk the husband into helping me a little bit more but he is busy with his Land Rover and his boat. He is starting to feel guilty though and he's going to finish up those projects so he can spend more time with me making the garden what it should be, which is a place of abundance and a lot of produce

Always good when they start to feel guilty, lol

You should talk to my daughter @andiekins. She and her husband have built three greenhouses so they can continue to garden all year long. I know she often says the end og gardeni g season is sad as well.
