Hello from Nova Scotia, 11 degrees today

Hi, my name is Brenda. Welcome to our garden located in a zone 6 area of Nova Scotia, Canada. This year, we are trying a few new and different approaches growing early vegetables, under shelter and inside our greenhouse/summerhouse in the back yard. Today, we started with four rows in the garden .. lettuce, beets, chard, spinach and carrots. We also planted a row of those lovely six inch tall marigolds to help keep the ants away. Good luck with that I can hear you say. Anyway, it is all going under the row cover and fingers crossed, no more snow and temps will rise steadily.


  1. What a great idea.

    Still remember your purple carrots from last year, hope they will grow now even better in there new home.

    But i heard there will be some snow in the air later this week.

  2. Hi!! Just read your blog. I love it that you use a lot of pictures. I'm very visual. I've just added your blog to my blogs I follow list. I live in Sidney, so you've probably been here when you go to Salt Spring.
