DAY 1 OF THE NEW GARDEN!
Well it has finally arrived, we started building the containers for the Heirloom Vegetable Garden today. My husband has finished the construction of two of them and we are doing one more. I will show you some more pictures tomorrow. They are going right along the sunniest part of our house.
My tomato babies are really coming along. I think I started a little late but I am hoping once they take off and get transplanted they will be okay.
I am planting a variety of heirloom vegetables including these pretty Easter Egg Radishes.
I loved the Rainbow Carrots. It amazes me how colourful Heirloom Vegetables were. Everything was vibrant and bursting with different shades. I wonder when things turned so ordinary, red tomatoes, green lettuce, orange carrots, red radishes etc.
Well I am hoping to brighten my culinary cuisine with an array of these beautiful vegetables. I have I think 9 varieties of Tomatoes (yes I know they are a fruit.)
I think I am looking forward most to the Black Krim. They look so dark and juicy, I can't wait.
My goal is to cultivate an Heirloom Garden so we can have these wonderful veggies all summer into the fall and make sauces and canned tomatoes.
I will keep you posted on the progress, if you grow any Heirloom Veggies I would love to hear about your garden.
I am proud of my Canadian, Norwegian and British heritage, it greatly influences my art and the way I decorate my 235 year old farmhouse. I am a vegan earth mother living in Canada. My passion is my family, my furry darlings and my art. I do all that I can for the welfare of all creatures great and small. I live a life that I fill with magic, blessings and bliss for myself and my loved ones.
