    neddorff, you asked about the growing season in Ontario. The most accepted time for annual plants to be planted is our long weekend in May, falling around May 24th. It is still possible to get a last frost some years if you plant before then. I have a garden starting in my basement right now, though, so I guess the season's open. : ) The tomatoes and cucumbers are coming up. I've planted quite few seeds. Are you starting your veggies inside?

    Thanks for the kind words. It's a lot of fun growing food for my family in the city.
