#ygkChallenge: Plant Some (Veggie) Seeds

Plan Your Garden, Kingston, OntarioThe #ygkchallenge is an ongoing series where we dare you to be different, resolve to be better, and or do something awesome in support of our beloved community. Each week, Kingstonist establishes a new, ambitious or quirky goal, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston (and the world) a slightly better place to live, work and play.

This week’s #ygkchallenge encourages you to:

Plant some seeds for your garden. If you fancy enjoying a fresh ripe tomato from your very own garden, now’s the time to start planting from seed. I must admit, the first year we decided to try our hand at starting our veggie garden from seed was pitifully unsuccessful. With just over half of our plants surviving the transplant process, we knew that had a great deal to learn as aspiring green thumbs. Five years later, we’ve more than doubled our backyard plot just to accommodate all the produce we love to grow. Figuring out what works for your space, and which plants suit your ability to take care of them, is half the battle. So make a plan for your backyard plot, buy or trade some seeds with fellow gardeners and start working on your future harvest.

Join us in completing this week’s #ygkchallenge by liking it on Facebook and/or re-Tweeting it on Twitter. By liking and sharing, you’re not only committing to doing something great, but you’re also helping us spread the word and hopefully encouraging others to participate.
