Welcome to 2019

Hi everyone,

It’s been over ten years since we started this website and about nine years since our last update.

I’m finally making some backend updates to the website and will make a bunch of corrections to our supplier database.

Right now our map and search functions are offline as I update to use the latest version of Google Maps.

Stay tuned and keep eating local!

Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day everyone!

Two good reads about good eats

Just a quick note to highlight two websites we came across today (thanks to a blog comment): Vert-a-go and the Seasonal Ontario Food blog. The first discusses local, sustainable food around Saskatoon. The second is a collection of recipes using 80% local Ontario food. That site will certainly find its way to our tummies.

Garden Update

Monday, June 9th, 2008

Tonight, I transplanted all four of the tomatoes – the Red Zebra in the garden, and the rest (black cherry, blanche beaute, McMullen) in a large planter box on the back patio where it’s the sunniest. 

Here’s the status of all the plants:

  • black cherry tomato – only 2 inches tall, the smallest of all the tomato seedlings
  • blanche beaute tomato – 4 inches tall, transplanted into a large planter box
  • McMullen tomato – 6 inches tall, transplanted into a large planter box
  • sweet basil – 2 inches tall, still too small to transplant
  • carrot – many have sprouted from the ground
  • parsnip – still no signs of sprouts
  • pea – six have sprouted
  • golden midget watermelon – all died  🙁
