The Summer Gardening in Canada Can Be Vegitably Enjoyable -- 2

The attention, love, patience and work that go into gardening are rewarded with yields of a variety of vegetables.

When you get the first crop of these vegetables, grown by your own hands, you receive the same pleasure, satisfaction and pride in seeing your child immediately after its birth! Those who gardened before know it too well. You still don’t believe it? I bet, you do it first and see how you feel about it.

A few samples of our crop yields in the last decade are shown below:
