Tippy Canoe and Broccoli, Too

Dear Vi,

I thought you might like to hear a bit of what I’ve been doing.In case you can’t tell from the picture, I planted a garden!Actually, I created a garden completely from scratch.I purchased bags of soil, plants, and seeds when we passed through Whitehorse last May………and when we got here I scrounged some old cement forms to hold the dirt.My neighbor Sally very generously let me shovel out several buckets of dirt from her dirt stash to supplement what I brought with me.Yes, people in Dawson City have dirt stashes. And least you think otherwise, I’d like to inform you that romance is alive and well up here – her boyfriend bought Sally a pile of dirt for her birthday one year. And also in case you’re wondering, yes, it was the perfect gift. I’ve been sharing salad greens and produce which is really cool, considering.Everyone has been enjoying the greenery. Amazing, who knew you could grow a kitty cat in only 4 inches of dirt?And of course there are flowers……how could there not be flowers?How’s your garden growing?

ps you’ll need to excuse any typos…I’m posting on my phone!

About Nita

I retired early and moved to a new community. I blog about my adventures as I explore a new lifestyle. I write about quilting, knitting and needlework, about learning to sew my own garments, adventures in the kitchen and in the garden, dancing, hiking, yoga...life is my playground!

    How beautiful!! I love your garden and your growing kitty!! I never thought that there could be a place with trees where you don’t also have soil?

    So happy to see you’re enjoying gardening in Dawson. We just got back from Korea and Japan;so my garden is full of weeds, but am thankful to my daughter, sister and brother for keeping my flowers alive with watering duties 😃

    Garden looks fantastic! No pests eating everything, that is a triumph. Have never seen such robust looking broccoli from a home garden!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
