Each Thursday, Diggin’ It pokes around the corners of the Web to see what other gardeners are doing and writing about. This week we visit Canada, Poland, Iowa, and California.

In Naramata, British Columbia, the Kitchen Garden Gourmet specializes in heirloom vegetables – Moonglow, Striped Carava, and Silver Fir Tree tomatoes, Rampicante zucchini, Guatemalan Blue Banana squash, and Buran peppers, among many, many others. The list and descriptions of the tomatoes alone will make you want to plant nothing but heirloom tomatoes this year so you can try one of two plants of each.

Ewa gardens in Poland (in what would be Zone 6 in the US) and you can read about it in English or Polish, if you prefer. It’s fun to see how the experiences of a gardener in central Europe mirrors the gardening life elsewhere – baby birds, visiting botanical gardens, moving loud-croaking frogs to a new home, getting rid of dandelions (complete with a recipe for dandelion syrup).
