Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Welcome to the Wednesday Coffee Hour here on Street Prophets. This is an open thread where we can hang out and talk about what’s going on in our worlds.
Grenhouse Gardening
Today I would like to share some photos of a greenhouse that I am sharing with my dear friend Mose.

Mose found this carport frame for sell on Craigslist for $100.00! He purchased the plastic for $80.00 along with some of the blocks for $1.50. We scavenged up the other blocks. It is a work in progress. I will be attempting some Fall and Winter gardening this year.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Grenhouse Gardening
Mose also found these free plants on Craigslist. Some tomatoes, eggplant, squash and watermelons.

While several of these are not your typical Fall and Winter plants, we thought "Hey they are free, why not give them a try in the greenhouse?"

We had a very dry Spring and Summer here in Oregon. This violetta artichoke plant has suffered as a result. It is known to thrive best in mild winters and cool, foggy summers. I have my fingers crossed that it will. Perhaps I will move it to the greenhouse as they do not like frost or snow.

These are a couple of my brussel sprout plants growing in one of our hoop houses. They are two years old.

Not even big enough to fry!

A tomato plant eaten by deer. We did not install our deer netting this year. Big mistake!

Are you planning Fall or Winter garden? Do you have a hoop house or a greenhouse? We'd love to see your photos, hear your about your gardening and advice!

Now for the most important question of the day - What's for dinner?

p.s. It is #boobiewednesday!
