I never know what to expect from day to day. Today I went to visit Ruth from Floral and Hardy Edible Plants in Vancouver BC. Ruth contacted me after a friend of hers told her about Amanda’s story. We messaged back and forth and talked about a garden and what Amanda liked to eat and plant. When my kids were young, they ate the staple veggies: corn, carrots and potatoes.
Story: when they were young, I would sneak carrots, squash, beans, etc into their diet by buying the pureed baby food and putting it into the spaghetti sauce.
I had told Ruth that I would visit on Father’s Day. It was a beautiful sunny day and Rob was out golfing with his buddies. So I headed into Vancouver. Found the shop and was in awe of all the things I saw (and bought). Ruth and Brian are wonderful people and they gave me a lesson on what a carnivorous plant is. What it eats? What it likes to drink? Apparently it likes bottled water. 🙂
We talked a while about mental health and the Vancouver East Side. Knowing the history about that area is a good thing.
