Site of The Day: Myspace meets Green Thumb

I haven't done one of these in the while.  Since it is spring, I thought this site would be perfect for the aspiring green thumbs out there. The site is called MyFolia


MyFolia is dedicated to the art (and science) of gardening - from tracking your own plants, to seeing who is also growing the same things you are.

Besides tracking your own plants, you can network with other gardeners to get tips.  You can also join groups that fit with what you are growing.  MyFolia gives you other tools such as a blog and scheduler, plus it can tie into a flickr account so you can share your work with photos.  

Once you sign up you get your own profile page similar to MySpace but with a focus on gardening.  At the top of the page, there are tabs for a wish list of things you would like to grow, a task list, a journal, seed stash which tracks your seed, bulbs, etc., and plantings which inventories all your plants.  There are even widgets that you can place on your blog or website which show what you are growing.

If you are a green thumb, I suggest you give it a try.
