Any tips of how to keep a cat from eating your houseplant? My main plant is getting big and sprouty but I came home one day to find half of the leaves chewed away. I put some garlic and pepper seeds in but these won't grow for a while so no garlic smell to drive him away.
how big is it, can you put it up out of the way? cats be crazy.

Bump/x-post for Mondieu
I know some of you grow fruits, veg and flowers. I’ve become an heirloom fiend - over the past few years - and am now at the point where I’m trading seeds.

Last year, I messed everything up. Nothing came up from seed. I took the time to talk to folks and study a bit. Made ALL the difference. This year, I’m in the running for the championship. UNBELIEVABLE yields. Organic.

Lets have a gardening chat, if anyone is interested. I have and am voraciously stock-piling heirloom seeds. I’m happy to share or root them, if anyone wants to trade.

Love to hear about your successes and failures. Tips, tricks and stories. Anyone into this, knows what I’m taking about.

The bounty of a proper garden can’t be beat.

I’ve noticed that every store that usually sells vegetable seeds has halted sales. You can still order herbs and flowers but not veg. Nothing available in store or online. Even soil and manure are unavailable. The shelves were fully stocked and available up until they mandated curb side pick-up. Does anyone know why this is happening?

My source for online heirlooms is closed until Tuesday and backlogged for almost a month.

Weird.

I ordered seeds online from Veseys and also Dominion seed house and they sent them by mail pretty quick.

If you have no luck finding seeds, I have a few extras left I could send you by mail. Cherry tomato and some arugula. PM me your mailing address if you can't find any in your area.
Thanks Alex. I’ll let you know! Really appreciate the offer!!!

Just wanted to say thanks again to AlexD and Peko for the seed tips. I found some really excellent heirloom tomato varieties, along with some spinach and sweet peppers via Incredible Seeds. Expedited shipping, so should be about a week. Plenty of time to get them all rooted before transplant.

Now to sort the soil and sheep shit. Hopefully the Loblaw’s at Broadview and Danforth will still get a shipment for curb side!

Happy gardening. :)

Thanks for all your tips Alex! I grabbed all my soil and manure from the Loblaws at Leslie and Lakeshore last night. Got over 50 plants from my first round and transplanted into Solo cups. It’s a little early to put them out for hardening off, so hopefully the weather starts to cooperate for that after this cold snap Round two of sprouting is under way and my new batch of heirloom seeds arrived today!

Won’t be much lawn left, after I shred it for my beds.

If anyone wants to trade plants/seeds, I’m happy to participate. I live in East York and am a fiend about sharing these gems! Just PM me. :)
