Tales from our Garden

Welcome to the first edition of Tales from our Garden!

The past owners of our house were really into gardening and we were lucky to inherit their wonderfully landscaped backyard complete with beautiful flowers, plants and a great vegetable garden. Most vegetables are annuals and have to be replanted every year, so after a few long weeks researching on google, and a trip to a local nursery, we took advantage of the warm long weekend and got to work!

Here is picture of what we planted:
In the garden: Three types of tomatoes, two types of bell peppers, zucchini, cucumber, leeks, green onions, 4 types of lettuce, basil, sage, rosemary, parsley, thyme and strawberries!

In addition to what we planted, we were also pleasantly surprised to find a few perennial herbs and vegetables hidden around the garden:

We found this overgrown asparagus plant which was a great surprise since asparagus is one of my favourite vegetables. Did you know that asparagus can grow up to 5 ft?!?!

We also found beautiful herb plants like chives, mint and oregano.

Be sure to keep checking back as I will keep you updated on the progress of the vegetables as well as delicious recipes to accompany them!
