My husband came home from shopping one day saying, ” I have a surprise for you.” It was no special occasion, but he will often pick up little treats he thinks we will both enjoy. Well, this was a surprise, alright – 10 packages of seeds – carrots, lettuce, beans, parsley along with all our other favourites. I should have guessed. It’s about this time of year that he gets spring fever and the urge to start thinking about gardening. But apparently, he is not the only one.
Just yesterday, on CBC, while I was preparing dinner, a guest was encouraging people to begin a garden by first starting the seeds inside which can be done now. She gave the instruction and list of supplies that would be needed. This morning, again on CBC, a lady who lives on a farm and has a large country garden encouraged people to become more independent by supplying some of their own food sources by having a garden. This year she is calling her garden, a Quarantine Garden since she will be planting it during a time of quarantine.
Our garden last spring.
