Happy Spring

May 13, 2013

Here at Gidora’s Garden we are feeling organized this spring and we want to give this blog another go! We have had a great start to this year. A highlight for us was attending Seedy Saturday and trading seeds with our friends and neighbours.

Last week we had wonderfully warm weather that gave a boost to all of our plants. Our garlic is looking excellent and we are already looking forward to our annual garlic harvest. We have started many varieties of heirloom tomatoes from our own saved seeds that are growing very well, right now we are selling them along with spring vegetables at both the Sechelt and Robert’s Creek farmer’s markets. Come out and support all of your local farmers while eating delicious food, listening to great music, and having a fun time!

We have some exciting new projects that we are starting this spring as well. Right now we are experimenting with kombucha, a fermented tea with many health benefits. Look for it at a farmer’s market near you in the future. We are of course continuing with our other fermented foods, sauerkraut and kim chee .

We have also been dabbling in mead making, including blackberry mead and crabapple mead.

On the weekend we planted a new asparagus patch, which we think will be great as one can never have too much asparagus. It should also free up the space where the old asparagus patch is for other things too.

Look for more updates in the near future!
