"Yes, for one of my garden beds I'm pretty sure planting too early was the culprit, or possibly adding a bit too much rabbit compost at once. I'm in Baltimore and planted the first week of March, but I think I was fooled by a few of those…"

"yes I think everyone is behind - especially on the west coast (la nina year!) I did my direct sowing last weekend, and I think even that was early. Where are you located Aliza?"

Shira Friedman commented on Caitlin Hertzman's blog post 'Seedling Mistakes'
"I always say that I learned most of what I know about gardening by trial and error - mostly error! Aliza, did you start too early? We are running at least a 1-2 weeks behind here in the northeast."

Aliza Ess commented on Caitlin Hertzman's blog post 'Seedling Mistakes'
"I'm so glad you posted this Caitlin! So far I've been having *terrible* luck with all of the carrots, peas, radishes, beets, and kale I direct seeded and I'm going to have to re-do everything. Our seedlings have been doing o.k. but…"

"Absolutely! I don't regret any of it, and I certainly don't expect to get it all right the "first" time!"

"I'm going to be looking for your squash canning recipes I bet, I started too many spaghetti squash seedlings! I can a lot, but mostly jams, chutneys, pickles (including pickled eggs, yum!). This year I hope to expand my repertoire to include…"

"What does make one a punk housewife? I'm an odd mix of working mother, 4 days a week, and crazy over the top homemaker the other 3 days... I live in the Downtown East Side of Vancouver, I glean from alleys, but sometimes I wear suits and scare…"

This is cross-posted from my blog www.wolfandfinch.wordpress.com. I am starting a series on the various mistakes I'm making as I set up my urban homestead in Vancouver BC. Lots of fodder as I've started my seedlings! http://wolfandfinch.wordpress.com/2011/04/04/new-post-series-mistakes/See More

A bit about me:
I am building my homestead from scratch, again. We renovated, went miserably over budget and started doing it all ourselves. So, we're building the basement, raising two kids, starting up our gardens, looking to get chickens, canning, cooking, making yoghurt and cheese, sewing, knitting and more - in our spare time. Follow my journey setting up an urban homestead in Vancouver – from a pile of renovation rubble to a productive, organic smallholding at http://wolfandfinch.wordpress.com/, or join me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Wolf-and-Finch-Urban-Homestead/11005...
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
I think what I'm best at is making something totally edible out of whatever is left in the fridge. I can't wait for it to be whatever is coming up in the garden!
