Hello from Barrie, Ontario -Canada

Post  Silvester on 11/15/2010, 11:20 am

Hi everyone!

My gardens have been on the way to sleepy since October. We had our first frost that month. I LOVE all the gardens I've seen. They are so creative. I made mine practical and it doesn't look pretty but it's worked out well. I've been growing veggies, herbs and flowers in the raised boxes for 3 years. I LOVE IT! I'm getting a little better every year and the yield is increasing. I just wished I lived in Florida and had a garden all year long!
I finally decided to sign up but am having trouble navigating the site Sad Hopefully, I'll be able to put up pictures soon. Beautiful gardens everyone! Hope you had an amazing harvest!!!

Saw your pics!

Post  bettyd_z7_va on 11/16/2010, 9:29 am


I saw your pictures at the Avatars site and I have one word to say - WOW!!!

If I can have such a bountiful garden in 3 years, I'll be a very happy person!

If we lived closer I would be there, picking your brain, to learn all of your secrets. Did you keep any records of your yields over the past 3 years?

I would love to know how much your garden has produced, what you have learned, how you managed with such a short growing season, etc,etc,etc.

Any tips you can share would be GREATLY appreciated.

Welcome, Silvester.

If you need help on how to post photos, just ask. (I am very techno-challenged but Boffer provided easy-to-understand directions that even I could follow.)

Can't wait to learn from your experiences.
