I notice there are some Amanita chipbowlius mushrooms fruiting.
Each year the Roseland Horticultural Society has a plant sale at Eglinton Flats, in the north-west quadrant of the park – that’s Jane and Eglinton, (enter off Emmett Ave just west of Jane). This is a great place to purchase plants for your garden, with fabulous prices on perennials. This sale starts at 9:00 AM and the time to be there is right at the beginning. Either Tuffy P or I go every year and load up the car with great deals on an excellent selection of plants. This sale gets the 27th Street stamp of approval.
Our robust Toronto winter did not deter the dandelions around here. They have come up with great vengeance. Last year I had them under control. That is, I couldn’t eliminate them, but I kept them down to a manageable plantation. Over the winter they seem to have multiplied by many times. I guess the consolation is that we are no longer pumping poisons into the ground to kill the weeds.
Check out the Community Garden Proposal for Colonel Sam Smith Park. Interesting idea. Can the park sustain one more use? Is this the right place for a community garden? I need to go have a look at the proposed site. In general I like the idea of more gardens
