On the My Growing Timeline, 2 of my nine plantings (so far) do not show estimated germination icon/date. The info is there in the planting or seed details (can’t remember which one), where you can state the estimated days to germination; estimated days to transplant; estimated days till harvest (calculated). The varieties in question are Cascadia sugar snap pea and Blue Lake bush beans. I tried deleting and then reinstalling one of them in case of some corruption, but the same result was there. Any idea as to why those aren’t working? If I look further out on those two, the estimated harvest date icons are there (dimmed of course), so I don’t get why the gemination icons/date don’t work.
Hi Don – I’ll take a look into this for you and see what’s happening here. My first thought is that the germination date and the sprouting date might be being calculated for the same week, in which case the actual event (sown) will preside over the estimated one (germinated). I’ll take a look at the calculations and figures you’ve entered and let you know what I find….
Thanks for the quick reply!
OK, I followed your lead and you are right. For the beans, which were sown on the 15th and had an estimated germination time of 6 days, I changed it to 7, which put it in the new week section starting the 22nd, and now the icon shows. For the peas, things are a bit different, but I think I know what is going on. For them I had a sow date of the 9th, with an estimated germination time of 9 days. That puts it into this weeks date section, but the icon still doesn’t show. I suspect that you can’t have an estimated event show in the current tan colored date section (maybe a bug?), so I changed the germ time to 13 days, which puts it at the 22nd, which is next weeks section, and presto – the icon shows. So, is that a bug? Why can’t an estimate show in the current week section (if that’s what is even happening). If not, it kind of skews the estimated germination times in certain situations like mine. Any resolution for this?
Hi Don – seems then like we might have a bug in the current week sections, thanks for the detail on this one – it’s much appreciated. I’ll look into this and get this repaired asap :)
Hi Nic – it appears I am having the same problem with some of my plantings as well.
I’m also having this problem. Some of my plantings are missing transplant icons and quite a few are missing the bloom and harvest icons.
Hi laurieann / WhiteRabbit – can you let me know some of your plantings that are not displaying their correct icons on the timeline, so we can narrow down the issue? Many thanks :)
@bond007 – estimates calculated to occur before the end of the current week were not being displayed, but I’ve now changed this in the latest release this morning to display all estimates, regardless of date – as long as you don’t already have a real date logged already for that planting. This should give a nicer picture in general of when things are due to occur and what milestones you still have yet to input into the system – thanks for the feedback :)
Thanks, Nic – that seems to have done the trick! Now I can see estimates and milestones within the current week. Hopefully that fixed the other’s that said they were having similar problems.
Sorry for the delay in responding. My Peppers – Sweet ‘Gypsy’, Beets ‘Early Wonder’ and Beets ‘Flat of Egypt’ are a couple of them not showing germination dates.
Also – is the best way to keep up with these threads by joining the groups and then checking back periodically? I keep forgetting where i asked questions…
