I am having a hard time listing my seeding info on Folia. I just signed up today but it does not seem to be accepting my items.

How about you, Camprn?

It's an online garden journal but it also has timelines and tips and a wiki data base (I really like this feature) about garden plants. I entered info a few weeks ago when I sowed onions. I have not tried to enter info today.

I think I will wait and try to update tomorrow. I am probably too tired to pay attention tonight.

Checking around it seems like it would be a simple way to keep track of what is happening. I like the fact that I can list my germination in my seed starting station and then have a separate listing once I transplant in the various SFG beds.

The excel spread sheets I was trying to make were not as simple to use as I thought they would be.

I'm liking that I can look up nearby gardeners and see what they have planted, their success and failures. I am still new with it, but I'm liking it. Very Happy

What was the operator error? Because I'm having the damnest time putting anything up there. Everytime I tab out of the "My" field (the one where I put I planted Beetroots) it just blanks the field, if I pick a "selection" it goes okay, and the blanks it.

Peeved!

I joined last night. Takes a little learning curve to find your way around....but looks great for keeping track of things.

I just signed up. Thank you for mentioning it. It seems like it could be a valuable tool. The site leaves a bit to be desired in user friendliness, but I think after I use it awhile I'll figure out the quirks.

How do you find info on it from other gardeners in your area?

I went to the Groups tab and typed in my state, there were several members in that group and then I looked at their journals. There are preferences so you can keep your journal public or private... That is as far as I have gotten.
