Seeds galore to plant, nurture and transplant. My favourites are Italian green zucchini’s, basil, pickling cucumbers, carrots, spinach, bush green beans and of course kale!.
The plan is to start this week within the different programs at the neighborhood house. In addition to seeds, each year we start the spring gardening season with purchased organic seedlings to get the ball rolling. This year a mixture of black magic kale, blue curl kale, and cherry tomatoes but first I transplant the seedlings in slightly bigger pots, about3-4 inch in diameter and nurture them til they are strong enough to tolerate our weather conditions and hopefully avoid slugs and other critters that just love baby seedlings. When they have grown a big stronger I will transplant once again in the garden plots we have on site and out at Clinton Park garden with the help of our volunteers and participants.
I love this time of year because it gets us outdoors and a chance to dabble in the earth and be one with nature. I like to use a combination of sea soil, mushroom and steering manure and some regular dirt, this formula does wonders for me.
Happy Spring everyone. Let me know if you need some seeds or want to connect with me for future hands on garden experiences or workshops. Eva@froghollow.bc.ca
