Spring in the Garden

Overwintered tatsoi going to seed

Overwintered endive growing like crazy!

It's a gorgeous day - sunny, mild and a great day to poke about in the garden.. Sure, mid-day is the worst time to take photos (bright sun directly overhead), but that never stopped me before! So, after planting up more flats of seeds, I took my camera for a stroll in the garden. Here are the photos!!

Also, join me tomorrow morning (Thurs) at 9:30 Atlantic time on News 91.9 FM (listen live at when Dan Alhstrand and I talk about gardening on a budget!!

Then, from 11 to 11:30 am, I'll be joining Jordi Morgan, the host of Maritime Morning on News 95.7 FM (listen live at to offer tips on spring gardening. We'll be taking your gardening questions during each segment, so please call in!!

Plus, I'll be at the Ideal Home Show this weekend in Halifax! Seminars at noon and 3 pm on each Saturday and Sunday - check out today's Chronicle Herald for all the details!!

A rare expected treat - overwintered scallions!

  1. It's good to see a relatively mild and sunny day.The sap is running again, so that says something. Even your "leftovers" look very nice. Sounds like a busy week for you!
