preparing the bed

a few people who showed up Saturday, came prepared to get their plot ready.  Here this gentleman is spreading a new layer of compost on his bed.  It is still too cold to plant, night temps are currently running between 3C - 1C.  Sometime next month it will be time.

  1. Do you have a plot? Is it for vegetables or flowers?

    1. Yup, we have a plot and you can grow vegetables and flowers, whatever you wish. We are going to grow both.

  14. We got down to -12˚C last night so it will be a while here before gardening begins!

  15. Depending on your food crops flowers can help attract pollinators and help with yields.
