Exploring, eating and writing about good food on Canada's west coast

Creating your own edible small space garden

Can we finally officially call it spring across the country? I know we've had it easy on the west coast as snow persisted across much of Canada, but the great white north is finally melting back to a soft spring green hue, so it's time to start thinking about getting some edible plants growing at home.

You don't need a gigantic garden to get started growing your own food at home. I recently wrote an article on small space edible gardening for Food Bloggers of Canada which has lots of tips to get you started including:

Where to plant, including alternatives like vertical and container gardening

What to plant, considering the kinds of veggies and cuisine you like to eat when planting

Tips for choosing plants that will grow well in your local climate and in the space you have to work with

Planting seeds versus seedlings for maximum crop yields

Don't forget herbs and edible flowers!

Normally I'm against killing but this article slaughtered my ignorance.


Hey, that's a clever way of thinking about it.


Contra todas as evidências, não consigo deixar de pensar que o parvalhão caiu numa armadilha. Hoje, os meios para eliminar adversários estão muito sofisticados.


Kick the tires and light the fires, problem officially solved!


I just came across an article on Design*Sponge where they talked about having a proper financial process and not just looking at the checkbook. I think that would be a great topic to cover.


It's great to read something that's both enjoyable and provides pragmatisdc solutions.


A pleasingly rational answer. Good to hear from you.


You've captured this perfectly. Thanks for taking the time!
