New to blogging

I live in the beautiful city of Powell River, BC. I moved here just a few months ago from Britannia Beach, another beautiful area of BC. I chose my new home because it has a large flat yard, almost an acre, in a semi-rural area.

I love to garden and had a very successful and bountiful veggie garden. I grew tomatoes, zucchini, buttercup squash, pumpkins, carrots, beets, lettuce, chili peppers and cucumbers. I started all of these from seeds. I purchased eggplant and green pepper plants.

I also have three plum, two pear, two apple, one cherry and two hazelnut trees. The plums and cherries were wonderful and I made jams, chutney, relish and froze much of the fruit and veggies in large ziplock bags.

I have many hobbies in addition to gardening. I love to paint, sew, read and ...

This is one of my painting projects.

That's all for now, next time I will tell you about our float cabin.

Hi Margaret -

Welcome to blogging. Your garden produce is wonderful. As you know, my garden is pretty small, but I've had lots of fun with it. I look forward to reading more about your town and lake homes. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving up the lake. - Margy
