Garden Tour 2017

We held a little talk at our work place to explain what it is we do; grow our own food. People were genuinely interested in what and why we were doing this. From that came many requests to visit our yard and see what we do. We decided we might as well sign up for the Summerside and Area Garden Tour for the year and have everyone come on one day when we were clean and ready. So we did.

Here are some pictures. We had a good day, we answered many questions and also learned so much from our guests. So many great hints and tips shared that we are looking into(Lady bugs are already here).

Giving ourselves the deadline of a showing moved many projects to completion that would have taken us years at a leisurely pace. There are of course new projects that came into being because of the ones we finished and we will work on those as we feel like it. The pressure is off.

Gardening is a way of life, never completed but built upon.

Enjoy growing.

  1. You both are wonderful people that love the land . your parents would be so proud of where you have brought the homestead in such a short while . I’ve learned so much from you both each time I visit your farm . it is with people like yourselves that make our world a better place to live in . bringing back the ways of our parents and grandparents in feeding our families when cost of healthy food is far to high for Low Income …Thank you for your kindness and knowledge sharing with others .

  2. Hello Wensel and Janet.
    Wensel, it was nice meeting you when I was down in PEI early September.
    Your place looks amazing especially compared to what it looks like via Google Streets. Keep up the good work and I look forward to your preserving blog for 2017.
    Hope to meet you in the spring when I am down in PEI once again.
