Growing up in the countryside of Northern BC, every year we had a bountiful garden. It wasn't until I moved to the city that I truly appreciated the taste of peas from a pod, tomatoes from the vine and a stained face from raspberries and saskatoons. I detested eating baseball bat sized zucchini and would avoid weeding at all costs. Now I recognize how incredibly fortunate I was.
So I was very excited to move to Ottawa and start my own garden. My first confession is that, despite my upbringing by amazing gardeners, my thumb is not yet green. However, I believe that with perseverance and enthusiasm, anything is possible!
