Which Posts Have You Found Most and Least Useful?

Posted on Apr 20 2012 - 1:47am by Mike Lieberman

In 2012, the content focus has change…

…and I would like to get your thoughts.

As the header image of the site says, this site is about “Practical container gardening tips to grow your own food.”

Which is why I want to make sure that that is what is provided for you – practical tips.

It’s easy for me to know which ones are the most popular. I really want to know which ones are the most useful to you, so more of those can be created for you.

This is going to be my last post for a few weeks. As you are watching this I’m back in NYC and going to be speaking at Green Festival on Saturday, April 21 at 2pm at the Javitz Center. If you are in the NYC area, come check it out and say what’s up. I’ll be back posting regularly on May 14th…or possibly before.

Most popular posts of 2012 so far…

To help jog your memory here are some of the most popular posts from this year:

Your turn

Since I want to be of highest service to you on this journey, in the comments below let me which posts were the most and least useful to you.

Each and every comment is read. Your opinion counts.

    How many plants per container. Also insect control without the chemicals. :)

    Word. Glad you likes.

    I find most posts to be interesting but somewhat introductory. Maybe something a little less 101 for those of us who have been at it for a while, but certainly don’t know everything. But to be honest, I have no idea what that would be.

    What I find most useful on any web page is a search box. I still haven’t found the one on here…is there one?

    Thanks for the feedback Christina. This site is geared towards those that are just starting out and don’t have much experience. If you are looking for information for those that have been at it for a while, your best bet is to look elsewhere.

  • Melissa Moore

    I like the posts that include pictures, instructions, recipes, example projects, and video clips are also helpful. I’d like to see you post more about ways to grow edible plants indoors as another option. Thanks and keep up the good work Mike!

    You rock Mike! You’re a true bodhisattva! You can now paraphrase Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche when he said that no bodhisattvas can leave Earth until every last piece of plastic has been picked up – now the same is true for every last 5-gallon bucket being used to feed the people! :)

    There was one, but I took it down because no one was using it. I might add it back.

    Thanks…I think ;-)

    Hi Mike,

    I just found your blog…very cool, thnx!  I like a variety of posts, a bit of everything – tips, growing advice, actual gardens/garden progress, recipes. all good.

    I have a bit of space in my yard, so I have been trying small 3′ x 3′ planting beds i made with scap wood. 3 squares planted so far, a cold frame in progress, and one more built but needing a spot. 

    So far i’ve done a square of asian greens (last summer), a square of garlic (48) planted last fall but all are up and growning!  Canadian here, so long winters, just starting to plant this year, there was a bit of snow this morning…grrrrr. This spring I planted a ‘Wok Plot’ square (last year’s asian greens plot) a couple of weeks ago with vegs for stir fries – things are starting to spout (napa, white radish, green onions, pak choi, carrots, more garlic, garlic chives – still waiting for the snow peas, kohl rabi, cilantro and rapini).   I just started setting up another square for an anti-cancer veg plot (tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, kale, carrots, onions, oregano, thyme) – the seedlings are still indoors, the rest has been seeded outside.   I have one more planting square made that i need to decide what to plant – maybe a curry plot (cauliflower, fenugreek, spinach, peas, onions, etc) or just a bunch more greens…not sure.  I plant patio tomatoes and green chiles on my balcony – a bit of a hot spot that they seem to like

    can you grow all year in LA? 

    cheers,
    jake

    Nice bro. In some parts of LA you can grow year round. It’s just a matter of what you can grow year round.
