Seeds!

My son and I bought seeds today, at Bill’s Garden Centre, which is so far my favourite garden centre in the city (to be fair, I haven’t visited many). We’ve just started cabbage, cauliflower, peppers, and tomato in individual yogurt containers in the kitchen – just one of each, since we’re going to try the Square Foot Gardening method.

We also have zucchini, broccoli, pumpkin, corn, swiss chard, turnip, beans (yellow, green, and bush), beets, spinach, radish, onion, carrot, cucumber, melon, and pea seeds. I figured that lots of people must come in and buy an optimistic number of seed packets at this time of year, but the woman behind the counter joked that we must have a farm. We’re only planning 2.7 m² (30 square feet) of garden, including the 60cm paths in between the two raised beds. We’ll see!
