Where to Go When You Don’t Have a Green Thumb — Two Fields Over at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market



This would be the height of my knowledge in the garden. I try to build it– but they never come. I have no plants in my yard this year, as last year I successfully killed most of them. I am more into garden art things than growing. Okay, there will be some dahlias again this year, as those bulbs are still living from my late father-in-laws 30-year-old collection. Even I cant kill that. The tragedy of my own front garden is, that I didn’t intend it to be taken as a joke. Scratch that: the official line now – and I’m sticking to it – is that it was all just a huge exercise in garden irony. But, each week at the Farmer’s Market, I froth over Patricia Darlington’s beautiful selection from her Two Fields Over Collection. Even if you stand among her tables it smells and looks just wonderful. She is the goddess of greenery at the Carleton Place Farmers Market with her Zen Fingers.
