Our little 0.0018 acre looks a whole lot neater than it did last year. If you were reading Toronto Gardens then, you might recall our very late start in July 2009 as brand new plot owners at the East York Community Garden.
Some of those squares have been planted with cool season crops such as lettuce, peas and spinach. We also planted sets of shallots. This heat spell is probably going to stress the cold-lovers out, however. If that’s the case now, we’ll have another chance to try them after midsummer.
Soon, perhaps tomorrow if the rain comes as promised, the tomatoes, beans, carrots and other warm-weather fans will go into the ground. We’ll be spacing our sowings of seeds at one- or two-week intervals, for a more continuous harvest in smaller batches. That’s the theory, in any case. Stay tuned to see how that works in practice.
