Some tidbits to share

Shade tolerant vegetables from Backyard DivaI’ve been getting some interesting links on my various feeds and I wanted to share them with you.

The first one is timely, as it is coming up on the official planting weekend in this neck of the woods (er… country). Our backyard is small, and there’s a big old cottonwood in it. Which means it doesn’t get a lot of sun in the summer. If you’ve got the same sort of situation, and you’re into edible gardents, here’s a list of shade-tolerant vegetables you can grow (3-4 hours of sun).

Next is a cool how-to on regrowing your own celery from the celery base. I haven’t tried this yet, but fully plan to.

If you have kids and are looking for a fun sidewalk activity with them, this DIY sidewalk chalk spray looks fun.

If you live in Toronto, it’s market season again! And the east side’s newest market is near Coxwell and Upper Gerrard at Fairmount Park on Wednesday afternoons from 3-7, starting the last week of May! They don’t appear to have a web page yet, but they are on Facebook and Twitter.
