Lolly asked if we are planning our gardens yet…well, Yes. I am a little behind in starting my seeds indoors but given the rule of thumb for gardener’s on BC’s West Coast not to transplant until the Victoria Day long weekend that gives me 4 weeks to grow indoors. That should give the seedlings enough of a start to be moved into the greenhouse (which is tiny) or into the ground with some sort of plastic covering to speed them along.
Here is a mix of things that are already growing
and things I plan to grow.
Don’t those carrots look wild? I am determined to grow more veggies – they just taste so much better right out of the garden – and this way I KNOW they are organic. I hope it will also encourage me to eat more fresh veggies. I think the herbs may be a fun addition to cooking this summer, and will hopefully lead me to try out some new recipes.
I also have a number of flower seeds whose packages don’t include photo’s but will be vibrant yellow – orange blooms. It should be bright in the garden this year.
This is the fabulous book I bought 3 years ago. It is my Gardening Bible. It has excellent tips, reminders and growing calendars. It also has pages to let you sketch your garden plots, make notes etc. I might just be lost without this gem.
What are you doing in your garden?
