IG: ???Yeah, don’t forget to add “AND FLOWERS” to that… what a wet summer it’s been and the slugs are thriving. My holey plants glisten with translucent shiny slug goo. Some are okay, but a lot really got slug-demoed this year. To be fair, I really haven’t put up much (…any) of a fight against them besides hand picking any I come across (and feeding them to the chickens?). It’s all part of the joys of gardening– each unique year presents you with a unique challenge

IG: Growing bell peppers outdoors in Ontario can be tricky– hit or miss really, but the conditions seemed to be just right for my deck railing container peppers this year. The seeds that grew these plants are from an organic pepper I ate last summer ?. Seed saving is so simple. I’ve got jalapeños too!! P.s. On its left is a surprise ground cherry/cape gooseberry plant that came up amongst my peppers that I decided to “let be”… in the gardening world this would be called a “volunteer”. It’s happily producing ground cherries in the railing planter amongst the peppers as well

IG: These mixed organic heirloom lettuces are about to become my lunch!! ? Growing your own food is SO satisfying (even if you end up sharing half of it with the groundhogs, raccoons, squirrels… and chickens ✌???‍?

IG: Guys, I effin’ love summer☀️?. This organic head of romaine lettuce is the size of a baby and weighs probably 4-5lbs. Literally the biggest lettuce I’ve ever seen. I wish this was all year round!!! Shoutout to @thebigcarrot for this $2.99 gemmmm (I bought 2, how couldn’t I?). (I obviously did NOT grow this– the groundhog who eats all my lettuce would never allow it to get anywhere near this size
