May Long Weekend

As in most of Canada I am certain, the May long weekend is the big gardening weekend.  It's traditionally a time of 'frost freedom' with some certainty in most gardening locales and a time to get at it and get the soil ready and the less hardy plants in the ground.  We've had a cool May so far this year in the Bella Coola Valley and I waiting till June to put out a few tomato plants - they always catch up anyway.  I'll be fallowing and rebuilding soil mostly this year, as I'm recovering from a bit of a back injury and decided to focus on other yard and building chores to catch up.  It's our first time in 25 years without a substantial most 'of our veggie supply garden, so we'll just have to support the farmers market this year.  Grizzly

  1. I had to plant my garden in March, but it's starting to sprout now that it]s getting warmer. I just finished reading "Ruffles on my Longjohns" by Isabel Edwards. She talked about taking produce to the Fall Fair. Ours is part of our Farmer's Market, is yours? If you can stop by my book review post next Sunday, I have a little shout out for your blog. I love reading your posts about current Bella Coola life. - Margy
