Spigarello Leaf Broccoli

Photo of me in my community garden taken by Davin Risk. Spigarello aka Spigariello is an old Italian heirloom leafy green that I grew last year.

Seedy Sunday Toronto

It’s that time of year, again. Seedy Saturday and Sunday events have begun across Canada in anticipation of the gardening season. In case you missed it, the Toronto event (this Sunday!) is earlier this year, and they’ve broken it up into three locations across the Greater Toronto Area in an attempt to manage crowds. Check
