The first batch of horseradish will be available Saturday, at the Saskatoon Farmers market. We have also been digging root vegetables, such as parsnips, rutabagas, carrots, beets, and leeks, which are available as well.
Life is still very busy out here, have started planting and moving perennials. Would like to get a lot of transplanting completed before freeze up. We will also begin cleaning out the gardens with the upcoming warm weather.
The leaves are starting to turn beautiful hues of yellow, orange and brown, and soon they will be dropping. We incorporate a lot of leaves into our soil. Have read several articles recently about the importance of mulching with leaves or tilling them into the soil. You can shred them with your lawn mower or leave them as they are and rake them onto your flower beds, and gardens. They contribute to the overall health and tilth of your soil, which in turn contributes to healthy and vigorous plants.
