Dear Seedlings,

Happy Canada Day weekend, everyone! 🇨🇦🥳🥳 I hope everyone is having a great start to their summer! It may not be the summer everyone wanted, but we are slowly going in the right direction with Covid. Let’s hope this continues.

Well, I must say, going into this year I didn’t think I would have so many extra pl ants, but when you plant late, things happen 😂.

I ended up having over 50 to 70 plants. I had to get rid of ranging from Valley Green tomatoes, to Albro peppers and guajillo peppers…etc. Thankfully there was enough people who were interested that we were able to find them new homes. I hope they’re having great luck with theirs as I am with mine❤️.

I must say, having the greenhouse inside my room for the winter time I felt like I always had somebody with me at all times. Now that everybody’s outside, I feel lonely and I’m missing all of that extra oxygen. 🙂

On to the plants, well, today was a special day. The first flower of the year award goes to my ghost pepper. They seem to be very consistent year to year, they always produce very well, and especially lately with our fluctuation in weather, from rain to extreme heat I think that has been adding to this special year for my plants.



Last year, I tried planting pumpkins, but I did it in a bucket, but that’s something that I learned you can not do. Pumpkins need lots of room. lol. I ended up getting a golf ball sized pumpkin last year, it was sooo cute but I want BIGGER! 😎🎃 So, this year I made a section in the garden and I planted 9 seeds. I wasn’t too sure what to expect, and BOOM, lol, they’re here :D. Six of them came up and are growing like there’s no tomorrow😂 I’m very excited to see what’s in store.



It’s tomato talk time 🧑‍🌾👩‍🌾🍅!

I was very fortunate in the beginning of the year. I ended up trading seeds with a friend of my mothers. I passed her over pepper seeds and she passed me over 7 different kinds of tomatoes. Very exciting. So, I ended up trying two kinds this year, Pink Heart and Zebra tomatoes. So, I have 2 valley greens, and 1 each of the other ones, and I can tell already there gonna be monsters. They’re thick and stocky and on 2 of them the branches are longer then the plant it self so Interesting watching them grow. It surprises me every year. lol. 😂

A very interesting note: The Pink Heart tomatoes, they have a light pink hue. It seems at first I thought it was me, but my niece noticed as well. Too cool! Time to get the tomato cages out and get them ready for action.

For the past four years I have always bought a summer savoury plant. They just always look so healthy when you see them in the greenery. LOL. This year I decided I wasn’t gonna buy any, but last minute. I ended up finding some seeds in my garden box, so had decided that, you know what, for the first time, I am going to start them from seed and see how they go. And gosh darn it, it’s growing like weeds in the garden. Now it’s coming up thick, bushy and full! I wasn’t sure what to expect, as, when I bought them they’ve been in a large pot but planting them from seed gives you so much more plant. Also, I planted the whole pack, so I probably overdid it, but I’m a big fan. I love to dry it out at the end of the year and turn it into a powder. It’s a great seasoning! Yummy.

On that note, ladies and gentlemen, it is the night before Canada Day and I am packing as I am going to have a staycation at a hotel this weekend. 🥳.I’m going to enjoy my king size bed. 🙂 I’m going to go out for dinner and drinks and enjoy somebody else cleaning up after me for a weekend. LOL. Cheers to everyone and may your gardens double in size by the next time we talk!

Stay tuned for more my seedlings,

Were just getting started.

Till next time,
