1 of 10 Gardens on the 2013 Dawson Creek Garden Tour

Barbara and David Peachey have a big family and a big vegetable garden to match. The Baytree residents offered up their garden for viewing on the 2013 Dawson Creek & District Horticultural Society’s Annual Garden Tour & Tea.

Barbara was as warm and welcoming as her abundant field (patch seems like too small of a word to describe it) of vegetables. She pointed out areas that belonged to specific children and grandchildren. I suspect there will be many more Peachey gardeners to come! The garden also had beautiful flowers planted for both enjoyment and to attract beneficial insects.

Here are a couple glimpses of the garden…

Rows of feathery topped carrots

Maltese cross, monkshood and rhubarb...all staples of Peace Country gardens and deservedly so
