We rely heavily on our garden. It must produce. Here in Northern New Brunswick Canada (zone 4a) the growing season is quite short and there aren’t too many opportunities to make up for lost crops. This year has been a difficult growing season. Garden pests and weather …it’s been tough. We are trying a number of things to get ahead of the challenges including: preventative organic pest control, attracting pollinators, planting short season crops & utilizing cold frames. I can describe what we have going on in the gardens far better with photos so let me take you through a guided photographic tour.
