Spring has officially sprung and we at Kootenay Spice could not be happier! We are very fortunate to have such a long gardening season in the West Kootenay. We can plant in the ground around mid-May and we harvest well into October, sometimes even into November!
Our crocuses have come and gone, daffodils are in full bloom and tulips are just about ready to bloom! Above is one of our faourite shot of some tulips from a couple of years ago.
For the past few weeks, we have been prepping our yard for what we anticipate to be our best season ever. Shannon’s dad was in town in early April and generously helped us set up our greenhouse and build 4 new garden beds; two 4’x10’ in the yard plus a 3’x9’ and 3’x6’ in the greenhouse. These were in addition to a 4’x10’ that we built a couple of years ago! A little bit of compost and a truckload of quality soil later, we are excited to get planting!
