I can't count the number of times I have told my kids to, ”get outside and have some fun!” Most times they miss the fact that finding this “fun” is the fun part. It isn’t a planned event, or activity. It’s about discovery and letting yourself find new things to love....Welcome to Day 2 of Stems Flower Farm 24 Days of Giveaways...READY?
Growing your own food has a ton of rewards. We all know it tastes better. And how much more local than your own backyard get? So why does buying local taste better? Well, for starters, if your carrots have to come from 3000 kms away, that farmer needs to grow a variety that will withstand the 4 or 5 days of transport and still be fresh. Sometimes, that variety isn’t as sweet or crunchy to eat as ones that you can grow yourself.
And, remember you control the environment in your own garden, so you can water when needed, fertilize when required, and you can manage the health of your soil at the micro level to produce the best veggies ever! And imagine, even a small bed full of what you and your family likes, will get eaten more often because it is always available. And don’t discount the fun you will have watching your tomatoes and pumpkins grow all season.
So why not dig in? To help you get started with fresh veggies, Day 2 of our 24 Days of Giveaways, is a Vegetable Gift Pack. This gift consists of two mesh produce bags, and one market Simplify tote from Good Vibes On Main, found on Main Street in Newmarket, Ontario (my old stomping grounds). If you’re ever in the area, Vickie’s Life is Good store is chock full of inspirational goods and gifts. More importantly, smiles. Plenty of smiles, and a positive attitude that is simply contagious.
Also included is a bar of Gardener’s Soap, a Stems Flower Farm collaboration with Mud + Otis, our local, natural, skin care wonder person. This bar contains all natural ingredients, but is tough enough to work on clay soiled hands.
And a $50 Gift Certificate for veggie seeds from Stems Flower Farm. You will be able to choose from over 300 varieties of vegetable seeds that are easy to start and grow in any area of Canada. You will look like a seasoned grower by the end of 2022.
And that is what the 24 Days of Giveaways is all about. Finding the positivity in people and in books, and in creations from makers who obviously love what they do.
For a chance to win leave a comment below. In your message, share which veggie is your favourite, or which one you like to grow, or your best local place for veggies, favourite veggies recipe, anything really, as long as it puts a smile on everybody’s face. EASY. This giveaway is open to anyone with a Canadian shipping address. This Giveaway is open until Sunday night December 5th at Midnight PT.

Zucchini is my fave veggie. I can’t wait to one day have a homestead big enough to self sustain our family for veggies ♥️

I’ve only recently discovered fried Zucchini flowers and that alone makes me want to grow even more!

Carrots are my favourite vegetable to eat but I HATE growing them. So many pests! Such finnicky weeding! I always find a way to have someone else do that job… eating farm fresh carrots all year though? Amazing…

I love growing zucchini. I make a killer soup, crazy fritters and it makes a lovely zucchini parmesan (as opposed to eggplant). Its a winner because it is relatively easy to grow and so versatile.
