Whelbourns in Canada

• Wednesday 13 July 2011 - Summer is here!

Well it is now July and we are experiencing sunshine and hot temperatures (at last). The black fly season has passed (just) and we are in the middle of Mosquito blood donation month.


The Veggie patch is growing like the clappers! Below are a couple of photos.

Veggie Patch growing like crazy.

Three Pepper plants with lots of flowers (hopefully later peppers).

The following are growing:

  • Tomatoes
  • Peppers
  • Beans
  • Leeks
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Beets

We have already been harvesting the lettuce which seems to be encouraging them to grow even more. We are looking forward to more harvest and I am planning to double the output next year. I have been using the Dig for Victory guidelines to help plan the veggie patch and I want to get up about half the 90x30 size they recommend.  It is all about learning how to grow your own food (and getting another hobby besides blogging and working .


The family are all well and I believe the sunny weather makes people happier.


The above ground Pool is up and we have been enjoying it when the water temperature hits 24c (or when I convince them that the temperature is really 24c
