|An overall look at a few of the Halifax Seed seed racks..|
Spring is here!!
I will be live tweeting and blogging about my Canada Blooms adventure this Friday and Saturday, but for now, I thought I'd share a bit of spring with you! To follow my tweets on Canada Blooms or my random garden musings, click here. For facebook, click here.
|Owen Bridge, the owner of Annapolis Seeds sharing his|
wares at the farmer's market.
|Owen's new seed packets, with art from one of his talented friends.|
|I perused the seed racks at Halifax Seed this morning - they|
have some wonderful new varieties, including pattypan zucchini!
Love these prolific and pretty summer squash.
|More of their new varieties - many from my book!|
Including Vit corn salad, Broccoli Raab, Kossak Kohlrabi,
a spicy mix microgreens (generously filled packets),
Green Wave Mustard, Baby Boo pumpkins and
Jack Be Little pumpkins. LOVE it!
|Always a classic - Bright Lights Swiss Chard. One|
of the best edibles for edible landscaping, flower borders,
pots, veggie gardens, cold frames, etc.
|I grew these petunias last year - Fusables Silk N'Satin. This is the time|
to plant them indoors now!! Gorgeous HUGE flowers in
bold and vibrant colours. Very easy to grow.
|And look, Halifax Seed shares the local seed-love by|
carrying a rack of Annapolis Seeds varieties. This
pole bean is a favourite of Owen Bridge.
|Drool.. amazing light racks for starting seeds.|
|Cloches! Great for protecting early clumps of|
salad greens and kale, or tender tomatoes, eggplants
and peppers from frost. Also, note their sign - a
Fruit Tree seminar tomorrow!
|These are what I use to start my seeds. Trays with|
cell packs are an efficient use of space and can be
reused or recycled at the end of the season.
|One more squash - an heirloom favourite of mine!|
|Look Ma, it's my book! Just 3 copies left and now|
freshly signed. Oddly enough, the Backyard Homestead
beside my book is a wonderful book by my book editor,
Carleen Madigan.. weird, eh?
