Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day everyone!

Two good reads about good eats

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Just a quick note to highlight two websites we came across today (thanks to a blog comment): Vert-a-go and the Seasonal Ontario Food blog. The first discusses local, sustainable food around Saskatoon. The second is a collection of recipes using 80% local Ontario food. That site will certainly find its way to our tummies.

Garden Update

Monday, June 9th, 2008

Tonight, I transplanted all four of the tomatoes - the Red Zebra in the garden, and the rest (black cherry, blanche beaute, McMullen) in a large planter box on the back patio where it’s the sunniest. 

Here’s the status of all the plants:

  • black cherry tomato - only 2 inches tall, the smallest of all the tomato seedlings
  • blanche beaute tomato - 4 inches tall, transplanted into a large planter box
  • McMullen tomato - 6 inches tall, transplanted into a large planter box
  • sweet basil - 2 inches tall, still too small to transplant
  • carrot - many have sprouted from the ground
  • parsnip - still no signs of sprouts
  • pea - six have sprouted
  • golden midget watermelon - all died  :(
