I had a great book signing at the Seaport Farmer's Market in Halifax yesterday. It was great to see so many avid gardeners ready for spring! Thanks so much to Halifax Seed for hosting that book table and helping out. It was also lovely to see the return of Owen Bridge to the market. He brought his seed racks (Annapolis Seeds) filled with the promise of juicy, heirloom tomatoes, non-stop organic salad greens and much much more! His was a busy spot and by the time I left, his racks were starting to get a bit low. Also, Halifax Seed is now offering his seed in-store! So, if you can't get to the market, pop into Halifax Seed to check out locally grown, heirloom seeds from Owen. LOVE it!!
To procrastinate from work, I've been flipping through some of my favourite images from last summer's garden. Thought I'd share a few of them now. But, don't let the fact that it's still mid-winter stop you from planting. If you have a cold frame, get out and start seeding! I sowed a handful of cold season greens this past week in the empty areas of our cold frames - Wasabi arugula, Green Wave mustard, tatsoi, Red Salad Bowl lettuce and some spinach..
