A Garden Stroll Down Memory Lane…

A Garden Stroll Down Memory Lane…

Some of my most precious childhood memories are around gardening. Growing up, my father had a large vegetable garden and many fruit trees when we lived in Winnipeg. He had a compost pile and in those days, that was quite unusual compared to our neighbours. I loved the idea of our food scraps and lawn clippings nurturing our vegetable bounty rather than the use of any chemical. Although the compost did have a somewhat unpleasant odour and appearance, it was magic to our garden, the plants loved it! No other vegetables were as tasty as a salad made from ingredients harvested minutes earlier! My father had an impressive variety of vegetables such as cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, zucchini, and many more he planted every year; plants like strawberries, raspberries, and rhubarb; and fruit trees like apples, plums and crabapples. In those days, much of the produce in the store came from far away and was quite expensive. There was not the variety in stores we can find today and what was available was not very appealing. My father’s garden provided us with delicacies you could not buy as well as well as more delicious options for those items in the store.
