IG: That moment before a flower explodes with vibrant, colorful life is so magical. This is a zinnia that I grew from seed. It’s so exciting seeing the different colours come to life, and I’m particularly excited for this almost fluorescent pink

IG: A mini dill cucumber and 2 cucamelons, aka mouse melons, quickly making their way up my innovative deck railing trellis (constructed using rows of string + Jeff’s staple gun and the shelf I removed from the bigger DIY raised bed bookshelf, see back a while). We’re going vertical baby– No sunny space will go unused here ???

IG: NOTHING from the garden or the fridge goes to waste here ?. Anything the chickens can’t eat (or just don’t enjoy) gets composted and eventually put pack into the garden, and otherwise the ladies feast on organic goodness from ugly or insect-damaged plant parts or when I overharvest and we have no time to eat it (like here–too much kale, oops). In turn, they provide us with the most amazing nutrient-dense fresh eggs. It’s a win-win for everyone and the planet. If you can’t do chickens (I get it…), start off by composting with a small composter. There are plenty of indoor models that are made for small spaces, apartments, condos etc., so no excuses really

IG: Harvesting boatloads of organic lacinato kale from my back deck while the morning light shines through… pinch me, am I dreaming?! ??Nothing makes me happier than to CREATE this way. I nurtured all of these from seeds the size of pin heads, to the huge nutrient-dense thriving plants they are now (and 100% organically so no chemical fertilizers or pesticides or other garb). So cool and totally amazing. Really puts you in touch with your food, in tune with how wonderous nature is, and the importance of great soil. Anywho over– just sayin’ I friggen’ love this shiiiieeeet and it’s the best ??‍??☀️?? Shoutout to my old school composter and @promixgardening for nourishing my plants organically like a boss

IG: I grow where I go, yo! ??‍?Since I’m between Toronto, Ohio and up north all summer, I’ve decided to grow food in all 3 places. Here is my latest addition: the cottage garden, a new home for my leftover seedlings. I’m keeping it quite elevated because the deer will eat ANYTHING you plant around here, if they can. (Deer could still get to these if they really wanted…we shall see how it goes!) HAPPY CANADA DAY
