I purchase many of my seeds from Salt Spring Seeds They carry heritage and heirloom seeds that they ship to your house-I squeal in delight when I get my shipment (I can't help it!) I had the honour of going to their farm on Salt Spring Island and have been in love with their dedication to plants and the earth and the quality of their products ever since. But just like everyone else I buy plants from hardware stores, gardening centers (I tend to buy my perennials here as they tend to have a guarantee and are better quality), craigslist (YES! craigslist and other similar sites quite often have avid gardener's looking to share their plants for free-and free is GOOD!)
But now for some photos......
Here are my tomato babies growing in one of my windows right now.....
|Roma, Ardwyn Paste, Carbon Beefsteak, Pine Fog, and more|
This past week I've been turning the soil with it's newly laid manure, cow if you must know:). I don't use any pesticides or chemicals on my plants choosing to garden with compost and poop! HAHA
These are some of my little ones growing in the garden as we I write this.....
The birds and bees love my garden, I have two finch nests in the yard right now-BABIES YAY!, and I can hear them again-makes my heart sing! It's still a little cold out to really get into the real nitty gritty of it all but can't wait! I will keep you updated on my babes (and if that peony does bloom you'll be one of the first to see the pictures!) I also love to share my plants so if you would like some clippings send me a message-I'm happy to share.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to get more poop! (LOL)
