Cannery Window Installation

I did a window display at the Cannery Arts Centre on Hunter St. I placed several little tiny pea, bean, tomato, pepper and mixed greens seedlings and seedlings inside a hot hot window. It’s like a greenhouse in their on sunny days.
Over the month, I will be photographing, and hopefully you will be watching, the growth of the little plants. Even though it has been cloudy, i have noticed a big difference over a short amount of time. EAT LOCAL.

Mixed Greens starting to poke through!

I know the picture above is of horrible quality, but i really wanted to show how cool this little scarlett runner bean, shown all puffed up and ready to burst below, has started to unfurl into a beautiful baby bean plant. yes, i am a nerdy plant girl

    What is a Cannery Art Centre ? (and why don’t we have one here in Toronto?)

    The Cannery Art Centre is a great local art store that sells supplies and art from the many fabulous artists gracing our streets! Gallery space upstairs, and performance space/ store on the street level. Scroll over the Cannery in the post for a link to there FB page!
