Grow Your Own Garden!

Landscaping the yard this summer? You might want to designate a spot for your own vegetable garden in the midst of planning. Sure, it might be a little more work than flowers and cacti, but YOU GET TO EAT IT!! And not only can you eat it, but garden veggies taste amazing, especially when you know you had a part in making it so delicious. If you have little space in your yard, start with the basics:
  • potatoes
  • carrots
  • tomatoes
  • beets
  • peas
  • onions

The really great thing about the above vegetables – it’s almost a sure fire thing they will produce! (Be a little bit more attentive to the tomatoes though.)

If you have more space, such as an acreage or a larger yard in the city, try adding in other complimentary veggies once you’ve got the basics covered, such as:

  • cucumbers
  • zucchini
  • lettucepeppers
  • strawberries
  • raspberries

And if you really have no space, such as in a condominium or if you are living in a rental property, plant an indoor herb garden! If you’re lucky, it will even keep through the long Saskatchewan winter, adding a little green to your home, and tasty flavours to your kitchen.

If getting your hands in the dirt is what you are after, but don’t have the space, check out one of the Saskatoon Community Gardens (neighbourhood map & information found below).
