In my excitement I have ordered the following three types of veggies:
1. Organic Napoli Carrots. They DID have rainbow and even purple carrots (my favourite!) but not organic. So I have opted to go as "zen" as possible for our future outdoor space. Mmmm carrots. Also, dad informed me that in order to save carrot seeds you have to leave some in the ground over winter until they "flower" in the spring. And according to him, they start to reek pretty badly. I guess he knows this because he actually forgot some carrots in his garden one year... hah.
2. Oregon Organic Sugar Peas. Mmmm, I LOVE peas and it will be fun to grow them! (I hope). We have a netting across our entire balcony (so pretty, I know) so I'm kinda thinking of letting the peas grow like a trellis on the netting.... although I'm not too sure how heavy they might get or if the super might get a little annoyed with that. We will see.
3. GARLIC. We eat a lot of garlic and I read that Nova Scotia was a fantastic place to grow them. Sadly they do not carry any spring organic varieties, but I will probably buy the Fall version depending on how we do this summer as URBAN GARDENERS!!
This is the next step in our "eco" adventure and I am very happy that we can live in an urban environment and still grow our own food. Also, having a quiet peaceful space to sit and be still will be wonderful in the summer time. I miss being able to practice yoga outside, I used to practice on the dock on Lake Kalamalka in BC and it was beautiful.
Yoga in the park it will have to be!
