Yesterday we had the large barberry hedge removed between our house and our neighbours to the north. this has opened up an opportunity to really make this garden sing! We likely won’t do a lot to it this year, but next spring it will be a project.
This morning, Tuffy P took over this blog to post about garden tour in Oshawa and Whitby. There was a request on the Twitter machine for some shots of our garden here at 27th Street.
You asked for it – you got it! Here’s a little slide show from a group of shots I snapped this morning…
Back at our old place in the St. Clair and Caledonia neighbourhood, we had a small garden but because it was very sunny, I grew great tomatoes and hot chiles. Here at 27th Street we have many beautiful mature trees but we don’t have enough sun to be really successful with the sun-loving veggies.
However, my little raised box garden is great for lettuce and herbs. I’ve been making salads from the garden for some time.
