Sheila's garden in Newfoundland and Labrador, Day 2comments (32) February 22nd, 2013 in blogs
Yesterday we got a glimpse of Sheila Boone's flower garden in Newfoundland and Labrador, and today we get to see her impressive veggie garden! Sheila says, "Since purchasing this property six years ago, we've developed vegetable and herb gardens and planted many perennials, trees and shrubs (mostly on weekends). Of course, it's a labour of love and a work in progress, much like all gardens! I have been a gardener in the city for many years, focussing on perennials and shrubs. Little did I realize that vegetable gardening would become such a passion! We have been experimenting and have found that alliums of all kinds grow well here, most root vegetables, as well as fennel, spinach, kale, swiss chard, and strawberries. We grow tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers in the greenhouse because summers in Newfoundland can be unpredictable, to say the least! Although, last summer we had record-breaking hot weather. Thanks for letting me share my garden with you." Thank YOU, Sheila!
