Happy Friday Folks!
We have had some gorgeous days this week! Samuel started walking just in time and has been thrilled to be spending numerous hours outdoors. Over the weekend we visited my friend Leisha and her cute baby boy. Leisha’s other half runs the Mount Scio Farm, a beautiful place right in the heart of the city where Newfoundland’s favourite savoury, among other veggies delights, are grown. There was an air of anticipation as the seedlings were growing in the greenhouses and the huge fields lay bare, waiting to be planted. The several beehives that populate the farm fascinated Samuel while I was envisioning family swims in the river that divides the property.
On a much smaller scale, most of our household gardening efforts are starting to show some results. Nasturtiums, cabbages, basil, fennel, and tomatillos seedlings have emerged from the soil. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for the dill and sweet peas. I should have done a seed germination test but it was hard enough to find time to start the seeds this year. I just added a few more seeds to the pots and I am hopping for a glimpse of green in the next week.
Have a wonderful weekend! Make it count.
