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!

Our Pear Tree

pear tree

I was also thrilled to discover a pear tree on our new property.  It is a good sized tree, about ten feet high that was laden with large pears.  I think it is a Bartlett pear tree but will get a positive identification from the nursery.  Like the peach trees, the pear tree likely needs a bit of pruning.  I will be following the pruning guidelines for fruit trees by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.  Before I start pruning though, I think it would be a good idea to have someone from the nursery walk me through the process.

While I will be working with some of the existing front and side beds, I've been accumulating ideas to try in our new gardens.  I'll be doing a lot of garden planning over the winter as well.  Next spring should be a very interesting and exciting time in the gardens.

Happy Gardening!
