Strawberry Patch

As of the middle of April the garden is coming along really well. Seeds I put in a few weeks ago are up and starting to develop secondary leaves. Try to ignore the few pieces of crab grass. That promises to be a lifelong battle. Radishes, Asian stirfry greens, and gai lan are all making appearances.

These strawberries are the variety "Seascape". They came as bare root plants and ended up taking up more space than I had planned. Still, it's worth it to have a productive strawberry patch. I miss the huge ones we had at our last place.

New French tarragon plants are also in!

The Garden Gets Started! April 3, 2010

This year Jeff and I each have a community garden plot at the Cypress Community Garden in Vancouver. With the help of our next door neighbour and friend Sara we've gotten things off to as early a start as possible. My life has been garden deficient since moving from Calgary. I'm aspiring to have these plots overflowing with produce for the next five months or so. Watch it all unfold here.
Our garden plots April 3, 2010. Chives, oregano, and a few flowers are up. Mushroom manure has been added. Weeds have been (mostly) removed...for now.

The worms in Vancouver are gigantic.

Asian stir-fry greens are already coming up!
