I am new and I am Canadian

Post  Eleanor Allison on 3/22/2016, 12:48 am

I am from the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island.  My plan is to turn my property into an edible garden using the square foot method. I am starting off with strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes and herbs.

glad you\'re here  Eleanor from Cowichan happy hi 
from Kelejan 
I am your Canadian Host and it is my happy job to welcome any Canadian joining our wonderful Forum.

I live in the B.C. Southern Interior so by Canadian standards I am almost  your next-door neighbour.

Sorry I am a little late in welcoming you, but I have had one of those days when I have not been able to spend much time on the Internet, let alone gardening.

Sounds wonderful, an edible garden. Are Square Foot Gardening or Back to Eden kind?  How large a garden do you have?  I see you are just starting with four items.  Good idea to start fairly slowly and get those settled in.  Do you have help? So may questions that I will stop for now.
Regards from Kelejan.
