Has everyone planted their gardens yet? Or are you waiting for May long? What are everyone’s favourite garden places, and what did you plant? Any good deals out there?
We planted slowly over the last week, I started most of mine from seeds I ordered from Heritage Harvest seed – was fun to have such a huge selection to choose from. Picked things like mini cucumbers that don’t need to be peeled, and many varieties of tomatoes. I love having a rainbow of colours in our tomato section! 🙂 I picked up some zucchini plants at Jardins St. Leon yesterday, didn’t realized one pot had 3 plants in it – so we might end up with a lot of zucchini! It’s one of our favourites, since you can freeze it, or use it in baking etc. Very versatile and pretty maintenance free. Also tried doing strawberries in one of those upside down baskets – a bit expensive since the baskets take 15-30 plants, and they’re not cheap! Didn’t fill it all the way, might add some herbs at the top – didn’t realize can be used for that too.
Any good deals on soil, fertilizer, garden tools too?
