Whether you're rocking a full-fledged veggie garden in the backyard, have a stellar natural landscape in place of the front lawn, or are coaxing edibles and bee-friendly varietals from random containers on the porch, this online garden journal is for you.
Folia is an easy-to-use tool that's a cross between a wiki, a journal, a social network, a photo sharing site, and more: it's an all-in-one resource center for your garden. Keep track of your plants' progress, organize your seed catalog, prepare for weather coming your way, and more--all with a free account. With a "supporter account" (starts at $16), you can even export your to-do lists to iCal and other programs. And better yet, get to know gardeners in your area who might want to begin plant swapping.
We signed up this week, and have been working on creating our garden. Folia is easy to navigate, and we think this will be a great way to troubleshoot with other home gardeners, learn more about our growing area, and share the exciting progress (like the five tiny strawberries we harvested this morning). Take a peek at what we've started here, and don't be shy about keeping up with our little container garden's progress or starting your own Folia journal.
