A May Long Weekend Super Tease
This weekend in Canada in Victoria's Day Long Weekend. You see being the loyalists we are, we still celebrate the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Victoria. :o)
We do things like have parades (at least in Victoria, BC they do), picnic, camp, head outdoors, and plant! Yes. Victoria's Day is when a lot of people plant their gardens! Why? Well there's an old adage that says that it's unlikely (although not impossible) that there will be frost after Victoria's Day. Thus you're safe to start planting your garden!
I don't really have a yard so my garden will be limited this year but I did want to encourage all you lovely bloggies to plant an at home garden. Grown kale, carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, or even something as simple as herbs in a pot! :o)
To encourage you to do so I'll share a bit of what my mom and I did with the Toronto garden's bountiful basil crop. You don't need quantities as large as what we used. But it did produce the yummiest pesto this side of Italy!!!
Stay tuned for that bloggies - but for now I'm off to Idaho. lol I'm going to drive down there, bask in the sands of the lake at Sandpoint, and go for a run.
See you later - enjoy the sun!!!
