TEG April 2019

The Edible Garden Newsletter April 2019 is now available. This month, we feature a very rarely grown legume to our part of the world--Peanuts. It is doubtful that Peanuts will become a cash crop in Eastern Ontario but for those who like a challenge, it is possible to grow them here and even harvest a few. Swiss Chard is native to Southern Europe and will tolerate heat but it grows best in our cooler climate. It is not a demanding vegetable and some think it is almost "too pretty to eat". Our author has also provided information on some of her favourite varieties. Carrots are another popular vegetable. While they sometimes seem fussy to start, they grow well here and are one of the root vegetables that are easy to store and in the right conditions can last most of the winter. We even include a recipe for an easy to make and delicious Carrot Cake. Finally we start a new series on Soil, focusing on the terms we use to describe it.
