Last Sunday marked the annual Ontario Herbalist’s Association Herb Fair at Harbourfront. I am pleased to announce that it was also the most successful You Grow Girl Toronto Meetup to date with our best turnout yet!!
Over the years, this site has transformed from an online magazine to a personal gardening journal. I use this category to differentiate between the more closely personal writing.
Another May, another act of gluttony at the Parkdale Horticultural Society plant sale. Okay perhaps there was slightly less gluttony on my part this year — arriving late always helps since the good stuff goes in a matter of minutes. But I just can’t help myself when I see a big container of something-or-other for 2 bucks. It almost doesn’t matter what it is; I simply can not pass up the deal.
This month will go down as the wackiest April in recent memory. We had some unseasonably warm days followed by a handful of cold, grey, wet days. Yesterday was sunny one minute, and literally hailing ice pellets the next! Thankfully I did manage to set aside a few hours on one of the warmer days to clean up my street-side garden.

I had a table at Seedy Saturday over the weekend where I sold some books and t-shirts. The turnout was great and I got to meet a lot of people who visit the site. Thanks so much to everyone who came out and stopped by my table to say hi.
