This forum, though a little premature at the time of this post, is a place to post the results of your seed starting. Please feel free to post pictures of your seedlings, vegetables, flowers, fruits, etc. in here!


Edited to add:
I'll include a link from the past swap results thread here: The thread "Results" in DnD's All Seeds Swap

😀

... Although, I'm not sure I will always include a link to previous results thread. My rationale: I'm not sure it makes sense to keep looking at pictures of progress that are from a year ago when most plants are annuals or atleast mature well enough in the first year to get the idea. I think, in the more rare cases where we want to do a comparison between 'here's how it looked last summer and here it is this summer' (such as may be the case with iris, daylilies, trees, etc), it is better to simply include those pictures in the same post on the current results thread rather than imagine or expect that people will try to dig through old threads to find your old pictures of a plant. Does that make sense?

I hope it's OK to include a link from the "Results" thread in your second swap, to this thread.

I see it as a continuation of a group effort to conserve OP varieties.

Lambchop, right now you'd just have to go to each individual swap. Maybe a link to previous swap results could be included in libby's first post here? She could just edit her post to include them. May make for easier finding of previous swap results.

Leslie, there have been two previous ALL SEEDS SWAPs... The last one was in October, so no one would really have any results from that one. The one from January, which we sort of think of as last year since it was the last off-season, has a results thread that i included a link to, per Karen's suggestion. Thumbs up

My first "result". I had 8 yards of soil delivered this morning to build up the bed where some of my seed babies will go. It doesn't look like much in the pic but I've started spreading it and it doesn't seem to be diminishing!

They think it is spring the Garlic at 40 ,degrees 26 has been the coldest since they were set out Same small bulbs I offered in the trade One of the few Bulbs I offered is growing also

Planted some Cinderella Milkweed today , ( nice gift from I share flowers , ) might not see them until next August or so , That plant takes a long time to happen here

I have some December blooms from Knockout roses, and millions of thriving weeds, but a hard frost is coming. It looks like the first frost of the year will be about 5 weeks "late", and a hard one.

Jim, I also had a cauliflower that did nothing. I'm still getting broccoli, Swiss chard & kale. The leeks aren't quite ready yet either. But we are getting our first frost in a couple of days. That will take out the Swiss chard. The Siberian kale should be fine though🙂

I'm envying your greens. Does even the tall Bok Choy stand up to frost? I never tried that.

We got that hard first. First frost of the year, it went down to 29. Last night went down to 25. Today is predicted to go down to 26.

I had gotten out of the habit of scraping that white stuff off my car!

Elena ,, it is strange when you get big plant that does nothing ,

Rick that tall bok choy was looking okay the last time I looked , it has taken upper 20's several times , The tall choy likes a better earth soil than my ground , The ones that were being eaten were growing new leaves that looked pretty good after the couple of frosts It was 24 degrees last night , I will look tomorrow and see what is ,
I have that white stuff on my cars also ,, Permafrost ! ..

Wow, now I have to start them MUCH earlier and push the fall date. If I ever get enough weeding and yard-work done to start growing crops again!

(What you said supports things I've read but never fully trusted. I think of tatsoi and Tyfon as real cold-hardy Brassica greens.)

I had some Bok Choy in the fridge once where it got a LITTLE too cold, and the white stem turned ugly and soft where it seemed to have frozen (or maybe just dried out?)

Rick the Tatsoi Mustard did not do as well here , The tyfon I had a little grower trouble with ,

The Bok choy I picked only lasted a couple of hours at most , You have to pick and use it as soon as you do !

The Michilli cabbage is a neat tendergreen here with the white heavy crunchy lettuce like stem , Different taste though I see why it is popular at times ,

Seems Turnip greens , Russian red Kale , The curled Mustard , Red Beets , Michilli Cabbage , All grow in the coldest months here , About a month of January thru February is the only time some won't grow ,
Looking for my other red Kale seeds , a few ,, I keep spacing off to many , I don't always rememberto tag seeds I am about to grow ,, goof ,,, goof ,, is me ,, D'Oh!
