Just became a member - just what I was looking for in terms of a community of support and resources. Working on a church garden, community garden and an education program for kids and their families on how to garden and grow food. Looking forward to sharing with you and learning from you.

Last year I couldn't grow enough carrots to keep us satisfied even though I was trying to grow extras for storage. This year I've gone the other direction and now we have a ton of carrots! Yay! I'm going to have to fire up another (little) fridge in the basement just for storing them.

The past spring and summer were tough on our garden, but we have persevered and done our best to keep things growing. The spring colder, later and wetter than normal. This is only the second year for the garden so we are learning about "the lay of the land." It slopes ever so slightly and with the biblical levels of rainfall, it impacted our ability to plant. Seeds rotted in the ground and so we were forced to replant. And replant. The ground wasted flooded outright, but it was more like a swamp. We would dig our holes for transplanting and then come back with the plants and there would be water standing in the holes! Our efforts and tenacity have helped us finally succeed at producing food for the people we are serving. The green bean harvest just kept on and on and we had lovely cucumbers, okra, potatoes, chard and peppers. The best year for peppers I can say!! We didn't get any pears unfortunately, the late frost took care of that. We have learned a lot and are already thinking of how to be even more successful next year. We love our garden and how we can make a difference for people who don't have ready access to fresh veggies. We will be building up our beds to accommodate for the slope, so they will drain faster. Wish us luck!!

Hi KGI Friends, around the world. What a spectacular Web Portal, for us to meet, share, and learn about gardening. I have a successful kitchen garden in the sandy desert of a desert valley, near the Salton Sea. I am having a troubled time getting a compost bin going, it is to hot in summer and in winter it is so dry, as well. Does anyone have a hot weather compost, or worm bin idea? My favorite gardening tv show is Gardening Australia, I watch it, using Miro and open source (free downloadable) tv, movie, and documentary viewing program. Good to be here, and nice to meet you all, as well.

Greetings to everyone! I moved to the eastern alpine foothills this spring; and once more I'm setting up a garden in a new climate and on new soil. As a most welcome side effect my growing area has gone from 10sqm/100sqft to over 200sqm/2000sqft. And there is even some lawn left.....

Looking for gardening friends in the South Florida area. I feel like this is a different planet for gardening. Seasons are the opposite, no soil, just sand. Must learn to garden all over again.

The end of the season is fast approaching here in Pasadena,CA. I can honestly say that we were able to manage our Kitchen Garden very well this year considering our Garden is only 2 years old. Except from the Orange tree and Plum tree, everything was planted within the 2 years that we've been here. We practically got every thing we need for our daily cooking and snacking from our garden hardly anything went to waste. Nothing goes to waste around here, because we use Bokashi Composting Buckets aside from the traditional composting bins. Checkout some of our harvest since spring. I'll try to upload some photos. I am new with this website so forgive me if it don't work.

Bought the house, haven't moved in yet, due to some renovations, but two more weeks and I will dig the dirt again. Sand in my case, I am in South Florida.

Just joined KGI and looking forward to learning all about it. Started permaculture style gardening last year. Eat tomatoes, lettuce, okra, herbs and more from it. Love it!
