Our garden is growing

It is spring and our garden is growing and looking great. Everything is growing well in this glorious sunshine.

Every spring I start dreaming of all the flowers I’m going to plant, and I love going to my local farmers’ market and picking out sunflowers, petunias, dahlias, and nasturtium jewel to plant.

I cannot wait until summer arrives and all these beauties start to bloom! Have a look at what our garden looks like now:

These will just tons of colourful flowers to make our backyard look gorgeous during the hot months… but have you ever thought about starting a home garden?

With food prices rising and more people trying to save money due to the economy, home gardening has taken off in a big way in recent years. Many vegetable seed companies report sales have shot up 30-50%, which is a clear indicator that more people are putting on their gardening gloves and getting to work.

Home gardening is a hobby that can bring great joy to your life, enable you to get some free exercise, and bring the entire family together. Although it may not sound exciting on the surface, it’s something you should consider if you enjoy the outdoors and are interested in reaping the rewards of hard work.

Next year maybe? 😉

Any canadians out there, how do you grow your veggie garden during the cold months? Do you have tips and suggestions for me? I know it is just spring but I would love to start planning my next year home garden 🙂
