Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

Snow is bombarding part of southern Ontario like you would not believe.   London had received 71 cm last report and it was still coming down.  The problem with snow is some of it has to be moved in order to carry on with daily living unless of course you are able to hibernate for the winter.  Snow has a lot of benefits though.  It is a great insulator and wind barrier.  Instead of piling snow from the driveway on each side consider piling it in your garden where it will protect from soil erosion, insulate the garden bed and provide extra moisture for the spring.

Happy Gardening!
