Another weekend, another trip to the allotment garden
Just a short trip this time; did some weeding using my awesome Lee Valley loop hoe (yippee... kill weeds without bending and squatting).
And I'm now looking at the sky (on what Environment Canada assures me is a full-sun day) and wondering if it's going to rain.
One thing I did notice today that I hadn't felt on earlier trips: mosquitoes! Must remember to wear mosquito repellant as well as sun block.
Which one does one apply first?
Or are there any non-paba 40+ sunblocks with mosquito repellant in them?
Today's Toronto Star has an article about the increasing number of people who are growing their own veggies. For more details, see Urban Gardeners are Growing Local ... the article is by Sonia Day, a gardening writer with a couple of books under her belt, Master Gardener, and artist.
