What better way to celebrate the first day of #summer than to recognize #nationalindigenouspeoplesday Thank you First Nations for your inspired stewardship of the earth. I am sorry for my part in the wrongs done to you and I strive to make amends. #summersolstice #truthandreconciliation #tikkunolam #repairtheearth

Sugar Snap Peas are coming! Harvest liberally for a continuous supply. Trick is getting them in the house without eating them all! .

This is season two of the #BUFCOCSA Our way of thanking our neighbours and providing benefits to the staff. Each week we split the harvest (sometimes more than one harvest) 8 ways and we all get a share. Everything from two urban backyards. Carefully harvested, weighed and recorded. Thank you @tachyonic_ ! Today was cilantro, two kinds of parsley and mint, Hakurei turnips and the special delicacy, baby fennel bulb and fronds and garlic scapes. Best feeling too when the gardens come back to HQ with a bouquet of flowers. .

Our greenhouse is looking pretty empty. Over 8000 seedlings have come and gone through this door which means a whole lot of urban gardeners are growing their own food. Something extra special to celebrate on this Father’s Day! Hope you all have a happy one. ❤️

Hello Patty! I still find it thrilling to watch life as it develops. It’s the reward after nine grueling weeks of planting 52 gardens so far this season. We’re over the hump and moving into maintenance mode. Feeling pretty darn grateful. Thank you to all who make #BUFCO possible. .

Check your garlic people. It could be time to harvest the scapes! If you planted hard neck garlic last fall then you can expect to see this edible flower stalk make an appearance. Once it starts curling you can harvest and eat! All the energy of the clove will now go into making a fat juicy bulb ready to harvest in 4-6 weeks. Or you can leave it to flower and collect the bulbils for future planting. But you won’t get a bulb. .

Kristan harvests a bounty of greens while Julia builds a trellis with poplar saplings harvested from a hydro corridor that is destined to be mowed down. The strong, straight trunks are perfect for building. .

It’s a glorious time for harvesting herbs. Such a great addition to any salad and that’s what we have in abundance. Parsley, cilantro and dill are a few of my summer favorites. I’ve found a mason jar vase keeps them nice and fresh. .

We are over the hump! Fully planted the #BUFCO lab and the greenhouse gardens plus all the pots destined for hothouse growing in the greenhouse. Maintenance period now begins. This is a great time of observation, nurturing, troubleshooting and of course eating. .
