I can’t believe how well my garden is doing so far this year. If I didn’t know that it was the 22nd of April I’d swear that, just looking at my garden, that it was nearing the end of May. My garden is just that far ahead of itself.
Of course it’s all because we had one of the warmest winters we’ve ever had this past winter. Barely any snow, much warmer than average temperatures. Hey I was was wearing shorts some days in March. I even watered the garden a few times in March. I’ve never ever done that before. I mean, I live in Toronto – part of the Great White North!
In the past I could rely on my raised garden beds to put my garden ahead of others by a week or two because my garden beds, being raised, would warm up a little earlier than ground level gardens, but I didn’t need that advantage this year.
Oddly enough March was warmer than April has been so far. In fact I hear that we might even get some snow tomorrow. Imagine that. It was so warm for a couple of weeks in March that I could wear shorts and people were wondering if we skipped to summer and now here we are expecting snow. Well I did say I live in the Great White North. A place where you learn to expect the unexpected. I should not be surprised!
O’ Canada Indeed!
