Why garden?

The taste of freshly picked homegrown food is great! Working in the dirt grounds us, is therapeutic and really helps us to appreciate where good food comes from. The amazing biodiversity (as in the thousands of varieties of tomatoes or beans that exist for example) available to us is not properly represented in grocery stores and it never will be.

Why all the varieties?

The amazing thing about growing plants is the diversity out there. There is no such thing as “normal” beans, or “normal” tomatoes! Scratch the word normal from your vocabulary. Each variety has it’s own character, just like people! There is resilience and stability in diversity. Tomatoes ranging in colour, shape, size, taste, texture, growth habit, you choose. Diversity keeps things fun, fascinating and exciting!

Grow favas (broad beans)!

They are easy to grow and incredibly nutritious! Seed them in the spring in full sun as soon as the ground is soft enough to work. They don’t mind the cool spring and they are quite vigorous growers. Harvest and eat the pods when quite small or the fresh seeds (cooked or raw, peeled or not) when full size, or even wait until the pods dry on the plants (they turn black) and keep the dry beans for cooking. The skins contain most of the strong fava flavour, so if you like that flavour, leave the skins on, if it is too strong for you, remove the skins. The diversity in our collection is amazing, pick your pod length, seed size, seed colour, and more. Do something different this year, try favas!
