The Gardening Saga continues (=
After our first attempt to plant, God has blessed us with ALL the necessary equipment we need to start our patio paradise FOR FREE!
The purpose of Fraserside’s Biggest Little Garden in Town (BLGT) project is to increase food production in urban settings. The BLGT is a container garden project which teaches and encourages individuals and the community in general, to utilize small areas to grow vegetables.
Thank you Biggest Little Garden and thank you Wilf and Vicky for going being patient with my husband’s constant e-mail request to be a BLGT member and for going great lengths to deliver this awesome Starter kit from New West all the way to our home here in Burnaby (=
BLGT Starter Kit (includes watering jug, trowel, cultivator and a selection of assorted vegetable seeds that grow well in containers)
What a wonderful sight to behold! This Little Garden Guide is a 60-page booklet that provides tips and tricks on how to plant, care for, harvest and prepare vegetables grown in containers)
2 bags of organic potting soil
BLGT Apartment Garden (includes 3 cedar boxes, base, lattice)
Can you believe that these are just the left-over roots that we chop off green onions???
BIG THANKS to these wonderful people!
Joseph and I have zero experience in gardening.
(Well, I guess Joseph has about 2% edge-due to his plant-watering skills way back when) but in my case, okay…let me explain…The thing is…I’ve always had an aversion to frogs. The mere thought of them jumping out from a hole whenever I start digging the soil makes me cringe!
Mr. Alex Mc Naughton patiently answering questions of newbie gardeners
The husband looks really accomplished planting that zucchini (=
The good thing is… I haven’t seen one here in North America and I doubt if I will ever find one here in our patio! (=
Burnaby Food First sponsored a workshop called Apartment Gardening for Beginners. Plant genius Mr. Alexander McNaughton treats his plants like a “person” with human feelings. (e.g.If you water them regularly, they will be happy; Be careful with the roots because they will get hurt and not make more babies) Who knew that you can go down to your local grocery store for free milk crates and coffee sacks and grow food in small spaces using these containers?! Not me!
But yeah…it did. (=
There is nothing more rewarding that seeing your very first plants grow…
First Harvest! (Snap Peas)
and using them in your recipe at home (=

Thank you Mr. Alex Mc Naughton for your passion for plants and of course, thank you Burnaby Food First for another successful Workshop!
