Hello from the gardens, Interesting that in past memory we have been praying for rain every July. This year is certainly not the same with waiting for the soil to dry up enough to get weeding and planting done. The ever opportunity to accept what is and choose how to respond. There's always options!
Some times you need to accept that you can't do everything. For some reason I seem to think I can at times. Other times it's lovely to realize that there are other great growers who have different conditions and opportunities. This week we have some tasty beets from organic growers John and Sheila, and leeks and new potatoes from Harris farms.
The goats have arrived! just yesterday afternoon we picked up 4 lovely female baby goats from our friends at Rural Roots www.ruralrootsnursery.ca. Heidi is an awesome market gardener with the most beautiful cut flowers and Edwin is the dairy goat farmer. They have loaned us these very cute goats for us to enjoy throughout the summer and then they will go back to join their herd. They will keep the paddocks trimmed down and provide so much joy to our space.
