A New Year, A New Tag

This is the first edition of the SteemIt Community Garden Journal Challenge for 2020 and already the 22nd time I run this monthly contest in which gardeners from around the world share their garden updates.

A new year has started, which means the #gardenjournal2019 tag we were using last year is history. I was told to keep the tag shorter, so instead of making it #gardenjournal2020, I'm just going to opt for the more generic #gardenjournal tag for this year's entries.

(If you have been following the tag in Gina, please do not forget to make the change.)



I had a meeting with my surgeon last week, and she had some good and some bad news for me. I'm not going to bore you with the bad news, but since the good news is related to my garden, I'll be happy to share.

She could fit my upcoming surgery in her schedule for February 10th, so not a lot of time will be lost anymore. I'll have to spend a week in the hospital, and after that, it will take about 6 weeks to get me up and going again.

If everything goes according to plan, I will be able to grow some low maintenance crops this year. In spite of all the bad news, that makes me really happy. As I said in my previous posts, I really expected I wouldn't be able to grow anything next season, and I would have to spend my spring and summer without my precious garden.

Of course, I won't be able to do any hard work, but planting seedlings and watering them shouldn't be a problem. All of a sudden, I'm looking forward to next summer again.

But enough about me, let's talk greens. After all, that's what you're here for, right?!

Welcome to the SteemIt Community Garden Journal Challenge, which encourages you to share your monthly (indoor) garden/balcony 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. The December edition wasn't a big success, but I hope that now the holidays are over, you all started nurturing your plants, crops, soil, tools, etc. again.

Last edition, we could enjoy the garden updates of

@riverflows, @gingbabida, @gertu, @cloudblade and @nikv.
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 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.

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.

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 share of that bounty.



🏆 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 Steem prize.
(Since SBD hasn't been printed for a while and I've run out of it, it's just easier to reward in Steem instead of SBD and avoid the hassle of exchanging)

I will also choose 2 random participants who will each receive 2 Steem.
I'm not giving out SteemBasicIncome shares anymore. By sending the random winners the liquid Steem, they can decide for themselves whether they would like to spend it on SBI or not.

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!
