After dispersing 3 cubic yards of triple mix (thanks for the supply, Homeland of Scarborough), we have beds for our veggies. The Young Urban Farmers are nursing seedlings, and soon our back yard will be teeming with tomato plants, eggplants, pepper and tomato, basil, peas, beans, basil, zucchini .... and I'm not just dreaming. The plants have already arrived. Photos to follow.

Our veggie garden adventure (sponsored by the Young Urban Farmers and their fearless/ slightly sodden leader Elaine) continues.
The first cold crop is up. This pea plant is a particularly handsome and jaunty fellow, n'est-ce pas?
Today, a load of triple mix arrives from Homeland Garden. Soon, Elaine will truck in seedlings for the back acreage. Okay, fine. The back footage.

The icecream truck is singing in our neighbourhood, and requests are flying for popsicles and snow cones. This is a ceramic tile I made and ornamented a few years ago. It reminds me of spring.
