Canada’s breadbasket – Southern Ontario shows the promise of the bounty to come with the springing up of corn and hay crops.
Southwestern Ontario is known as the Breadbasket of Canada because of its abundant and diverse crops.The first cut of hay is in progress. The corn is growing as you can see in the picture. The beans are up and the grain is high and waiting for sunshine to turn it golden. We had more rain than normal this Spring so the crops are later than normal. Today is the 2nd day of Summer and we have plenty of rhubarb, asparagus, strawberries and lettuce and raspberries are just beginning. Most farmers markets are open. We got beautiful produce and berries at the Grand Bend market on Wednesday. I have been busy making pies and crepes using our juicy fresh berries. Yum. I will include some recipes in my next blog.
