The Start of Gardening Season

Last night was the start of gardening season. It may be -22C with windchill outside, and snow deep on the ground, but it is time to get ready for the spring and summer growing season.

This year we are starting quite a range inside, even vegetables you traditionally directly seed into the garden, in an attempt to get some vegetables early.

The list of what we planted is as follows: tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, cabbage, lettuce, cilantro, basil, spinach, chard and kale. We also planted seeds for marigolds and calendula. Little bits of a large range of vegetables to hopefully get a head start on our 2017 garden.

  1. Always good to get a jump start. Those first, early crops always seem to taste best, and then you can make room for more once they are devoured. It’s snowing here today, too, but not minus 22, thank goodness!

    • Devoured is the perfect word! I introduced my kids to what food straight from the garden tastes like and they are completely in love with it. We are expanding our growing area this year too, so I am hoping for a great growing season.

  2. It has been raining in Vancouver for several days and will continue into next week. Vancouver “urban” gardens are popping up all over the city. It really is great to see!
