seed GROW Links for October #seedGROW

Sorry for the delay in creating the post for the SeedGROW roundup. This is the final SeedGROW post for the season and I want to thank everyone for their participation. I hope to do something similar next season. If you continue to have reason for post (blooms, recipes, ideas) past this month into winter I'll be happy to create a post and link to this. I hope you enjoyed the project and got to meet some new garden bloggers and discovered a plant that you will grow for years to come. If you're late (raises hand) with your post feel free to drop a link to your post in the comments. Also, look over the past months and if I somehow missed your previous post please let me know, I want to make sure to get all of them archived.

Seed GROW Projects Link for May #seedGROW

First, I want to thank everyone who signed up to participate and completed the April post. I noticed that a lot of the bloggers used SeedGROW or some variant of the project title in the post, which is well and good. Although, feel free to change it up a bit to your benefit. For example; if your next post is about how to fertilize your Nasturtium seedlings you could title your post "How-to Fertilize Nasturtiums," "Fertilizing Nasturtium Seedlings," "Fertilizing Nasturtiums." Using keywords from your post will help your blog post get placed in search engines and help people who are using Google to find gardening advice discover your blog. Also, make use of the alt attribute when you upload images to your blog so that when people use Google image search they may find your post.

The May posts are due May 2, 2010. Feel free to leave the link to your May post in the comments here, tweet them to me on Twitter ( hashtag #seedGROW ) or place them in the Facebook group.
