with Gardening Girl Julia Dimakos
We’re kicking off the month of February with our first “growing indoors” episode of Down the Garden Path. In this podcast, we discuss growing indoors and with grow lights with Gardening Girl Julia Dimakos.
Julia started growing food after having children and fell in love with it! She gardens organically and tries to keep things simple while growing new and uncommon vegetables each year. Her garden is located in Mono, Ontario, on 25 acres on the Niagara Escarpment. Two years ago, Julia expanded her vegetable garden from 2000 to 7000 square feet, continuing in the formal kitchen garden style.
Julia has been growing vegetables and writing about gardening for over 10 years and has been published twice in the Canadian Organic Grower magazine. She loves to inspire others to have their own vegetable gardens by showing them the simpler side of gardening.
Join us this week for our conversation with Gardening Girl Julia Dimakos.
Julia answers a few of our questions:
- Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got started gardening? What inspired you?
- What inspires you today?
- What are you growing this year?
- How much do you start indoors? What does your indoor setup look like?
- Tell us about some of the resources you have on www.juliadimakos.com and how it can help our readers get started the right way.
You can find Julia online here, as well as on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.
