It's the time of year that Calgary vegetable gardeners hopes are high: prepping the soil, planting seeds and hoping for a good harvest. About three-quarters of my garden beds are planted. I'm also making time for citizen science projects related to birds, pollinators, plants and lake health.
I had to think about this month's photo blogging challenge theme - pooch. Our family does not include a dog. My sister's family's dog, friends' dogs or dogs seen while walking/hiking might have worked. Or dog portraits. But I wanted to find a way to make the theme fit the things we love to do every month...and I did!
July is peak wildflower season in the Canadian Rockies. Enjoy nearby nature while keeping watch for colourful blossoms and pollinators. It's also time for harvesting early crops from our edible garden. And for nipping any garden pests or diseases in the bud.
