When the snow thaws, and the bird song becomes an excited orchestra, and the sunshine feels a bit warmer, and the fresh air smells a little sweeter... these are my favourite signs of Spring. Just the word feels green and new! Time to plant some veggie seeds and get the garden ready...
|Seeds from Halifax Seed, and some great gardening books, including our local gardener extraordinaire, Niki Jabbour!|
|Tomatoes, Bok Choi, Peas and Beans, Spinach, Kale, Chard, Edamame, Celery, Cabbage, Parsnips, Carrots, Zucchini, Cucumbers, Lettuces, Watermelon... oh and Sunflowers :)|
|Tiller belt issues. Had to exchange it for one that didn't conk out 20 times.|
|Beautiful, fertile soil!|
|A little added compost full of manure and wood chips.|
|Black landscaping fabric will hopefully cut down on the weeding, and keep the soil warm and moist.|
