Thought I would share this photo of a friend's garden in Canada's Northwest Territories. Strange plants!

 Fish fertilizer? Actually, dried fish to feed the dog team in the winter.

Well, I don't think they taste like bananas, Geoff,--but I will wait for Kate's report. Perhaps more like okra? Is Kate making gumbo?

Thought I would take some "before" photos-but don't know what happened to the captions. That's a banana slug, by the way---and not even a large one!

Might take a day off digging and just do some cleanup instead.Don't really feel ambitious today. Has anyone grown Malabar spinach? I have a few in pots in the greenhouse, but they are not doing much yet. Guess it's still too cool to plant out the Lablab beans. Both are an experiment this year. Lots of basil potted up, but still inside. I have a pot still going from last year on the windowsill.

Hello,all-my day is just about to begin--looks like sunshine for the next few days,and I have lots of digging to do. Reading about all your exploits is making me tired, though. Magnificent super moon last night; shining on the water.

It is rather expensive, but I have done it. What with shipping charges,it's not really worth it for just one or two things. But it's a real treat to go to a garden center with a wish list--it's probably just as well I don't travel to town very often!

Figrat, that is an impressive transformation!

Looks like here we are having the same sort of weather as you are. I have the heat on again.

I am still working on my construction project; might go and take some "in progress" photos today.

No luck with the globe artichokes--will add to my wish list. I must do a town trip soon--need new glasses.

Good morning--jury is still out on the weather-lots of grey cloud, but it's not actually raining. I fancy growing some globe artichokes in the west garden-but it's probably too late to start from seed, if I can find any. Don't think deer will eat them, and they are perennial,aren't they?

Today is shopping day, and the plant selling lady is here -she comes with plants once a week. I shall ask her.
