(This is Dad's garden....all organic - he composts and uses no pesticides/sprays. He grows: tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, green onions, parsley, garlic, peas, strawberries, beets, peppers, romaine/leaf lettuce, apples...all in his little corner of the earth).

Happy Earth Day.

Happy Earth Day to you too...Our garden is all organic too but so far we haven't started anything yet. Just cleaning up for now and turning the soil. We've only just started having some nice weather the last two days...ciao

Home depot down here gave out a CFL bulb to everyone through the door and had real green stuff on sale and easier to find. I changed to CFL bulbs and my next month's electric bill was halved.

send me some tomatoes, and garlic please.

Well Deb, my last year garden looked pretty good too and I hope this year will be better. I have some great compost ready to go. Re those CLF bulbs, Ontario is banning them in 2012. Going to make it impossible for me to knit or read. I can't see worth bugger all in that light...ciao

Our yard is organic as well, except my only crops are rhubarb and tomatoes that never ripen. I keep a little window box with lettuce and parsley right outside the back door, which is really handy.

And those fools at Green Drop, whom I get to aerate my lawn, keep sending me estimates to spray pesticides on my lawn. I can dig out dandelions by hand thank you veryt much!

Oh know how I feel about rhubarb. Now I'll be craving it all day...YUM!

I wonder why your tomatoes don't ripen? Hhhmmm.

And isn't it handy when you can just reach outside and get some nice fresh stuff? Love it.

Our tomatoes don't ripen (on the vine) because our frost-free season is about 5 days. Grrrr!

Nice pictures. I've missed my share of pictures. I remember taking 24 with my old film camera at the Ren Faire and thinking I'm out. I found out later it was a 36 picture roll. It still pisses me off.

Love the garden by the way. I hope mine looks half as good this year.
