A second year in Christine's Quebec veggie gardencomments (18) November 29th, 2013 in blogs
We last heard from Christine Fitzgerald a little over a year ago, when she shared her very first vegetable garden with us (refresh your memory HERE). Today she's back with an update on how the second year went! She says, "I am a bit late sending these but here are some photos from my vegetable garden in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, in Canada. I also included some photos of my bounty and a few of the critters that made my garden their home for the summer. This year was my second year gardening and as with my first, the tomatoes did incredibly well given the cold mornings and evenings that we experienced this summer. I went a bit overboard this year and planted close to 20 varieties! While I did not plant any seed potatoes, lots grew from leftovers from last year. My hard neck garlic, Romano yellow beans, and italian purple climbing beans did well, as did the rhubarb. For some reason my summer squash and cucumbers did not grow as well as last year. I think summer just got a late start this year. I can't wait until next spring!" Me too, Christine! Brrr.....
**** I'm still looking for photos, everyone! While I've got a bunch of great submissions in reserve, I can always use more. Pull together some snapshots you took in your garden this season and send them in! Email them to GPOD@taunton.com. Thanks! ****
