So today I will discuss my garden and later tonight I will post some pictures.
Not only do I use the garden in the back to grow vegetables I have also converted our front beds from flowers to vegetables. This spring I dug up and transplanted perennials to the farthest area of our backyard and sewed beans, peas, basil, garlic chives and rosemary in their place in the front. The beans included pole beans and low growing bush type bean plants. Even though we still have our CSA share with Rock N' Horse http://www.rocknhorsefarm.ca/ Rock N' Horse Farm (and we get fabulous vegetables, meat and eggs from them) , I still like to grow my favorite vegetables - green beans, peas, carrots and tomatoes along with favorite herbs like basil, thyme, sage and rosemary.
So even though we have had a drought here in southern Ontario I am happy to say that this new location in my front yard for vegetables has done spectacularly and I plan on doubling one of the beds to grow more vegetables. When I take the pictures and post them later today I will explain more about my future plan to grow vegetables in this upcoming fall and winter. I am going to use Niki Jabbour's book that I bought a few years back to fall/winter garden -
You can get this great book at Amazon.ca Year-Round-Vegetable-Gardener-Matter-Where
I will also post a whole bunch of recipes that I have used successfully, or modified/created my own for all the herbs and vegetables I do have.
I discovered a cool website/blog and am ecstatic to see tiny house living is going great in Ontario -
