Grow more. Eat better. Be healthier.

 Any chef will tell you that there is nothing like cooking with fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs. And there's certainly nothing like eating fresh.

In Niagara we are lucky to have a relatively long growing season (compared to the rest of Canada!) with 170-190 frost free days. According to the Ministry of Agriculture, historically the last frost has been April 25th and the first frost on October 20th. 

This means we can get started seeding early vegetables which can tolerate cooler temperatures, in early April.

April 1 - 15 • Vegetables such as asparagus, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, lettuce, early potatoes, spinach, peas and onions will actually benefit by getting started in the cooler weather.

April 15 - 30 • By the end of April you can seed beets, carrots, cauliflower, celery, late potatoes and early sweet corn.

May 15 - 30 • Typically this is Planting Time in Niagara and it's safe to plant snap beans, sweet corn and tomatoes. Then lima beans, cucumber and zucchini, eggplant, peppers, pumpkins, squash and watermelon. 

Mother Nature can throw you a curve ball now and then and late frosts are known to happen. Be prepared to cover your tender plants with burlap (not plastic!) to protect them.

Did You Know?

  • Resist the temptation to start seeding indoors too early! The seeds will turn into plants very quickly, which will then need to be transplanted into bigger pots, and will need fertilizer and water. Your home will become a mini jungle in short order, complete with foggy windows and stretched out plants.
