Grow

This section is dedicated to our adventures, successes and frustrations in the garden. These  are our gardens, present and past.

  • Condo Balcony (2017)
  • McVean Farm & FarmStarters Community Organic Garden Plot, 1000 sq ft organic garden plot  (2016)
  • The Burlington Garden – leaving Toronto for the quieter city and larger property sizes, this was a well loved garden that we created, transforming the usual grass into shade gardens, a cut flower garden and a vegetable garden. (2012-2016)
  • The East York Garden – our first garden together and the start of a serious love affair with growing plants and vegetables. (2010 – 2011)

Seed Inventory

Seeds we’ve grown and our growing notes. Navigate to additional pages at the bottom of each chart.

This is just my own reference list for seeds I’ve tried and seeds I still have.  If you’re looking for a seed starting chart,  I highly recommend You Grow Girl’s Automatic Seed Starting Chart.  It’s so easy, I’ve used it every year since I found it! You plug in your last start date and the chart updates to show you early and late sow dates, growth period, set out dates and planting dates.  So easy!
