What Is Garden Connect?
Garden Connect is a network of gardeners from around the world growing identical 2 by 6 foot plots to compare and share growing methods. If you would like to grow along with a community of other gardeners sharing growing methods and having a fun time then you should join us!
What Do I Have To Do?
To join, simply plant a garden with this years layout and write about it throughout the gardening season.
This is the Garden Connect layout for 2014. Plant whenever you can/want and if you can't fit the 6 by 2 foot plot into your yard, that's okay too, you can still join in on the fun, just plant as many of the plants as you can and tell us how they are doing throughout the season. Be sure to write about any changes you make in your first Garden Connect update!
How Do We Share Our Stories?
There are many ways to share how your garden is doing throughout the season, you can post updates on a blog or on Facebook, tweet them via Twitter, post pictures to Instagram or Pinterest or make a video and post it on YouTube. If you want you can even write them down in a notebook never to be seen or simply comment on someone else's updates with your own! Whatever you do, try to stay consistent so we know where to go to see them!

What Do I Share?
Not sure what to write about, that's okay, I've compiled this list of questions which may help you as you write. You do not need to write about these topics nor are you confined to them. They are there to help inspire you if you get stuck.
How Will I Know When To Write?
You are welcome to write whenever you have something to share. The goal is to have each member write once a week or biweekly at the least but we are not going to pressure you if you feel as though you have nothing to add nor will we stop you from writing every day. We want everyone to have fun and if you can write about your garden twice a week or more, you are encouraged to do so.
Is There Anything Else I Can Do?
Know anyone who might be interested, tell them about it! That is the best way to show your support! Then grab a badge for your blog's sidebar. If the one below is too big or too small, check out the variations here.
