I'm probably too late to start leeks and onions now but maybe I'll give these old seeds a try and sow then thickly.

Thanks Sanderson.  I'm literally as light as a feather now. Summer of 2018 my BMI was overweight and not far from going into the obese range. Now my BMI is in the middle of normal. I have lost 47 pounds. Others say I look good but I feel skinny. Gotta work on that six pack now  Very Happy Laughing Smile

We just picked up an order of 10 packets of seeds from a local organic gardener (Greta's Organic Garden https://www.seeds-organic.com/ ) here in Ottawa. I placed the order and paid for it online.  When we got to her house all of the orders people had placed were neatly packaged in paper bags with the purchasers' names on them. These bags were left on a table on her porch. There was no face to face contact.  Interesting times we live in.

Raining quite heavily here today so that will clear out a lot more of the snow and ice.

A few days ago it got very windy while I was out on one of my neighbourhood walks.  The wind gusts actually stopped me in my tracks a few times.

That is why I would not like to live in a windy city. You need to get yourself streamlined, TD.  Go and find a wind tunnel so that you can shape up like the racing cars do.

When we were full-time RVers, we were applying for a job as volunteer lighthouse keepers at Cape Blanco, on the Oregon coast. During the interview, the ranger wanted to show us the lighthouse, so we climbed the hill to the entrance. Bob and the ranger were ahead of me and going through the door, when a renegade gust of wind came along. Bob had to literally reach out and grab me and pull me in, or I would have been blown off the the hill! affraid

Just used thyme, dill, sage, basil and lettuce grown in one of our Aerogardens. Yummy.

Mrs TD finished this acrylic painting. It's based on parts of our garden including the red flyer wagon that I use in the veggie garden, the bird feeder, the summer flower beds, the cedar hedge around the backyard and the big tree in the back corner of the yard.

Last Fall I left some parsnips in one of my old style SFG beds. They are supposed to get sweeter during the cold of Winter. Going to find out tomorrow when we try eating this one.Sixth Year SFG in Canada - Page 3 Img_2670

It's true what they say. Parsnips left in the ground over the winter are better tasting. The one I just harvested was delicious.

I remember the time I first harvested carrots from under a foot of snow,  they tasted so good.

Two containers of microgreens grown indoors. On the left Daikon Radish and on the right Arugula (Rocket in the UK). These will taste great on our salads.

I get tired very easily but here are some things I got done today.


  1. Ordered two cubic yards of mushroom compost and two cubic yards of cedar mulch for delivery on Monday morning.
  2. Took our summer things (tables, chairs, etc) out of the shed.
  3. Sowed four squares of snow peas and four squares of sugar snap peas in the SFG.
  4. Made a small hardware cloth cage.
