🌺 Steem Community Garden Journal Challenge - March
What's going on in your (indoor) garden, on your balcony, in your homestead or on your farm this month? Let us take a peek and maybe you'll win one of the prizes
A New Start?
Yep! It's that time of the month again. 😁
Your favorite garden journal challenge is back.
I've decided to move to our brand new home, Hive.
You can see the original contest post on Hive HERE.
For those of you who haven't made the transition yet, I'll be running this month's edition on both Steem and Hive. One prize pool, but entries can be submitted on both chains. Starting next month, I'll go all-in on Hive. I hope you'll be joining!
Spring Is Here
On my side of the world, spring has started. My favorite season kicked off with some nice and sunny weather. It's a bhit of a shame it won't last very long, though; it's gonne be a lot cooler and rainy again next week.
This time of year is always a bit tricky. My kiwiberry, which overwintered inside the greenhouse, looked all green and beautiful, so I decided to ask my girlfriend to move it outside. The next day, all the green shoots had died again... you guessed it: night frost. Sigh... I should really know by now and be patient, lol. I'm crossing my fingers, hoping that the plant will recover once the temperature goes up again.
The Corona virus has messed up my plans a bit. This year, I didn't sow any veggies inside. My plan was to go out and buy seedlings, since I'm still not fully recovered. But a trip to the garden center is not possible at the moment. I just hope that - if this situation doesn't change - I'll be able to order some veggies to grow online.
If not, I'll have to work with what comes up spontaneously. But even in that case, I think there will be quite a bit of action in the garden this year.
In the greenhouse, lots of seeds that were buried in the soil are sprouting again. Mainly flowers for now. It's fun to try to identify the seedlings.
I'll try to get up a post up later this week to show you what is happening in my own garden.
Welcome to the Steem Community Garden Journal Challenge, which encourages you to share your monthly (indoor) garden/balcony updates with your the community and create your own garden journal.
A Shoutout To Our Previous Contributors.
As you know, due to circumstances I missed the February edition. I feel a bit bad about it, since I hadn't missed an edition in 2 years. But hey, it is what it is. There's a positive side to it too, though: I bet you all have a truckload of pics this time!
We've had different gardeners joining this challenge in every edition. The participants' base follows the seasons in the different parts of the world. People in the Northern Hemisphere, like me, are looking forward to starting up their garden, while in the Southern Hemisphere, summer has ended. Either way, lots of stories to tell!
A quick shout out to some of our previous participants. With all this confusion about moving to Hive, I'm going to tag some people to invite them to join and post a new update.
@abitcoinskeptic, @nikv, @porters, @riverflows, @gertu, @gingbabida, @cloudblade, @sayee, @plantstoplanks, @enjar, @fotostef, @travoved, @proto26, @amberyooper, @bengy, @kindredacres, @pastoragus, @ericburgoyne, @exator.
@fionasfavourites, maybe? (A girl can try, right? 😂)
If you're not tagged, no worries: this challenge is open for everyone who is growing 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.
Same rules as always:
Please note the changed tag!!

Please also include a link back to this challenge somewhere in your post.
You can include whatever you want in your post, but please remember that the pictures should be the most important aspect of your post.
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
As always, all entry posts will receive an upvote from my personal account.
No Steem-Bounty this time. I checked the service to see if it would move over to Hive, but it doesn't look that way. I even got the idea it wasn't a 'thing' anymore....
I need to do some research on the tokens, but I assume most haven't made the switch yet. I'll try to come up with a way to give all entries an extra reward by next month. This month, a small comment upvote will have to do.
🏆 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 10 Hive/Steem prize.
(If the winner has posted an entry through Steel, he/she will get the prize in Steem. If the entry was posted on Hive, Hive will be awarded.)
I will also choose 2 random participants who will each receive 2 Hive/Steem.
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 2020.
I'll can't wait to see your updates!
