Just a little video on planting tomato seeds.

 Just a little vid to show how I plant my tomato seeds.
( I've been trying all day to put a backing track on this video but youtuba are taking forever so I'll post it as is.)


The seeds I planted here are the free 'Santorini' heirloom tomato seeds attached to the cover of September's issue of 'Burke's Backyard' magazine.

  According to the mag the seeds 'are from the famous Greek island of Santorini in the Aegean sea. We (Burke's Backyard) sourced this heirloom variety from an old Greek farmer who has been saving his own seeds for 50 years.
  On the dry, volcanic soils of Santorini, the old grower says he never waters his plants and his tomatoes are sensational, so in most areas of Australia normal, natural rainfall will be enough. They're very sweet tasting, 5-6cm smallish fruit produced on a knee-high bush that doesn't need staking.'

Hi! I was curious to know if setting up a blog site such
your own: http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=7677496750939268931&postID=4582697961113163164
is difficult to do for unskilled people? I have been wanting to create
my own blog for a while now but have been turned off because I've always assumed it required tons of work. What do you think? Thanks

I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else
encountering issues with your website. It appears as if some
of the text within your posts are running
off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and
let me know if this is happening to them as well?
This may be a problem with my web browser because
I've had this happen previously. Kudos

My developer is trying to convince me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a variety of
websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.

I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm new to developing web sites and I was wanting to know if having your blog title relevant to your content really that crucial? I see your title, "Blogger: My Veggie Garden " does appear to be spot on with what your website is about but yet, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add
to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
