Time to grow

It’s confirmed.

Arugula is happy with snow.

Lots of my seeds have sprouted. The arugula on my balcony has germinated, and held through last night’s freeze and snow. It’s a bit of a microclimate too over here which may have helped.

It’s a great time to experiment. If you start some greens outside and they don’t make it, try a few more seeds again a couple weeks later. You can learn a lot about the length of our growing season.

I’ll let you know soon a new place to grab some organic seeds in Downtown Toronto. I can’t wait to get all our Building Roots projects started this spring and begin¬†planting a lot more.

Similarly I’m growing this site, to offer more updates, stories and resources.

Check back soon as everything comes to fruition!
