Veggies, anyone?

Have you started planning your vegetable garden?  May Long weekend is fast approaching and we all know what that means.  Hopefully, cross-our-fingers, to having frost-free nights!  There is something so incredibly satisfying about growing your own vegetables, serving them to friends and family, and of course, eating them yourselves.  Yeah, yeah, I know.  I’m biased.  But still, the unmistakable taste of fresh tomatoes warm from the sun, drizzled with a little olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper, is heavenly.  How about the crunch of carrots eaten after they’re pulled from the ground, when you shake the dirt off, chew and can still feel a bit of  soil between your teeth.  Fresh herbs are also one of my favorites.  Thyme, basil, parsley, dill, summer savory, mint and terragon.  A million uses of flavour and fragrance.  I could go on and on…

In the next few weeks, the growing season explodes.  It’s what we wait for all year long.  Are you ready?  Come check out our wide range and selection of McFayden Select, McKenzie, OSC and Lindenberg Seeds.  And of course we have vegetables planted and potted ready to transplant, if you don’t want to grow straight from seed.

And in the next week or so, I’ll post a blog on planning and planting a successful vegetable garden with some great tips!
