Help!!!!

please.... i've noticed that on other people's blogs i show up as "home" not as Roast Garlic and Other Yummy Things...... sighhhh i've searched and searched and changed a few things, but still comes up as "home"........ anyone have any ideas what i can do to fix it?   oh another issue that drives me crazy... i put the pictures in then when i publish it the text comes up beside, not below where i put it...

speaking of home... the 'homespread' is coming along ... in between the incessant rain and grey, i've managed to take some beautiful aged cow manure and spread it around my Rhubarb and Strawberries, dig it into some of my raised beds and even deposit into my newly moved composter...my composter was originally over by the comfrey and the hops and was useful until the bear came and lopped off it's top... after that i never really used it so the compost in it sat for several years.... i dug up that black gold, sifted and spread liberally over the manure that i'd put around the Rhubarb... i'm envisioning Rhubarb Pie ... mmmmgood futuristic thought .....

the above picture shows the future Rhubarb Pie and Dora the Digger's latest dig... the brat!!!

things are slow this year, including me... an ever annoying neck and shoulder issue that is only allowing me to dig and do a few things at a time... an hour here and there per day... but i guess it's better than nothing... and since i've not figured out away for Dora the Digger to dig in appropriate spots i'll just continue to putz along....as for my seedlings all the lettuces, arugula, onions have managed to come up abundantly but the rest is a bomb... not one single Milk Thistle has sprouted, only 1 Black Cherry Tomato seed and only a few dill seeds managed to sprout...

first planting of peas are up... YAY!!!!
this morning i planted some Squash seeds... if any manage to sprout i'm just going to call them Succulent Suprise.... originally i had several  different types of seeds that i'd saved from either my own Spagetti squash from the garden or the Delicia  and Carnival i'd bought from the local farmer's market....and a most delicious Butternut that a friend gave me from her garden.. i was dilligent in cleaning and drying, all nicely labelled ready to go... until i took them to my greenhouse..... i was distracted and got to doing something else in there and whoosh my arm hit them and splat on the floor they went..... anyways.... Succulent Suprise was planted this morning... hopefully some will sprout!!

Lucky you! My rhubarb and everything else is still covered in snow.... but it is melting!

BTW you come up with the full blog name on my links.

It comes up as HOME on both my reader and by entering your url on my blog roll. Go to your Dashboard, select Settings. Under the Basics tab, the second item down (Title), do you have the correct name entered?

I see your entire header. I like the early start of a few things. I planted a few potatoes and onions today.That pie always sounds good.

I just changed it manually on my blogroll, so at least we know who you are now, LOL!

I can't wait to get rhubarb planted. I couldn't believe that at the huge Wednesday farmer's market here in Santa Monica, all I could find were 4 measly stalks of skinny, green, one broken, rhubarb. That was all the ONLY vendor (out of what had to be over 50 stalls) who was even carrying rhubarb, had left. So disappointing.

On my blog reader it comes up with the entire heading. As far as picture placement goes, are you using the old editor or the new one? There should be options when you upload a picture for how you want the text to go if you are using the old editor, if you are using the new one it gives you the options when you click on the picture after it's uploaded.

Good luck!

Bummer about the seeds that didn't sprout! For what it's worth, it took about a month for my herb seeds to do anything and now I have dill, cilantro and parsley sprouts coming out my ears.
