Q & A
June? Noooooo! Can't be.
Since I talked to you at the beginning of May I have been to BC, Alberta, Northern, Eastern and Central Ontario. I talked with my buddy Jason in Winnipeg this week and my son Ben in Halifax 10 minutes ago. All of us have had a very different experience with weather in the last month; Wet out west, cold up north, great long weekend for Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal, cool and wet in the Maritimes.
I am here to announce that June is 'nice weather month' across the country. Even my friend Christine Hand at Handyman Home Hardware in Conception Bay South, Newfoundland will get her wish for great gardening weather in June. Watch for the full moon June 23rd Christine! That will mark your time to plant your potatoes.
In the mean time, the questions to 'groundskeeper' [aka 'Brenda'] at www.markcullen.com come fast and furious. We are averaging about 100 questions a day right now and out of them falls this interesting pattern. In this month's newsletter I address some of the 'most asked' gardening questions. See below. And if we missed yours, feel free to connect any time. We get back to you as soon as possible with an answer that makes sense, is credible and if we don't know the answer we will suggest where you might find it.
