A Front Yard Edible Paradise!

Andrew, Cheryl and 3 year old George have a new playground this year! And what a playground! It's a front yard organic veggie garden - what a visual treat for the neighbours, eh? They've been working hard at creating it and were finally able to plant on June 15th.. as you can see, the plants have taken off and are doing very well.. There are also plans for expansion, as Andrew and Cheryl hope to add a perimeter garden all around the outside of the beds next spring..

And since I'm on the subject of veggie gardens, it's still not too late to get the fall/winter crop of carrots, parsnips, beets, swiss chard and kale in the garden.. in a few weeks, the mache, spinach, claytonia, lettuces, arugula, tatsoi, pak choi and such will follow.. time is ticking though, so get yours seeds and get planting!

Thanks to Cheryl for these gorgeous photos - your garden looks fantastic and just think of the fun that George is going to have!

Happy Gardening!
