I garden organically and enjoy seed saving and swapping. Our garden is only 3 years old and we will be working on square foot veggie gardening next year.

Below is a photo of my lilies and a happy visitor to our garden.

I can’t wait to learn more about the organic gardening! And what is square foot vegetable gardening?

I just paced off my vegetable patch for the spring… 60 squares +/- ! So many options! in such a relatively small space!

-- southern NH. - smack dab in the middle of 5a and 5b - with lots of shade and full sun, in all the wrong places.

I’m definitely up for learning more about organics…although veg gardening is quite a challenge with two large dogs that love to sniff and dig!

It is Bell Island stone…A small Island off Portugal Cove NL. I hired some local men to do the brunt of the work while I watched and learned from them. The rest of the stone work including the stone stairs I completed all by my little self :)

Dh is not into stone work. Just wood and heavy things I point at for him to move :)

Welll done, Xploreorganics. NL is a tough place for gardening as its growing season is quite short. I have a good friend from Harbour Grace on the east side of the island. We are thinking of taking a trip out there some time, possibly next year. We love the people there, ... so straight forward, honest, and fun loving…. at least the ones I’ve met. LOL

Do you have any photos to post of your garden this summer?
