Rain, Gardening & Industrial Wash

Good Morning Everyone,

Hope everyone had a nice relaxing weekend.
Over in our end of Alberta, we had some great weather and much needed rain though not enough to get rid of the current province wide fire ban sadly.

I spent the weekend visiting with Hubby’s extended family and gardening and delivering a painting to a local customer.

Those of you who follow me on Facebook may know already that every year we plant a sizable garden and this year is no exception. If you’ve never grown your own food I highly recommend it. Not only is it environmentally responsible but you’ll never look at grocery store produce the same once you’ve tasted home grown! And really who needs a lawn?! If you’re an apartment dweller you’d be surprised the things you can grow in containers 🙂

This year our harvest (assuming everything grows well) will consist of: Beef steak Tomatoes, Garlic, Chives, Raspberries, Strawberries, Blueberries, Rhubarb, Carrots, Purple Haze Carrots, Peas, Green Beans, Scarlet runner Beans, Beets, Cucumbers (regular & pickling), Rutabaga, Parsnips, Lettuce, Squash & Spaghetti Squash, Zucchini, Peppers and Japanese Daikon Radish.


I asides from working in the veggie garden I also planted a few Gerber Daisies and Geraniums this weekend to add a bit more color to the yard.

And as I mentioned above Sunday I had the pleasure of delivering my painting “Industrial Wash” to a local collector.
