    A great video on soil blocks on YouTube is called "Making soil Blocks" by

  5. alan30189

    Something for you to try out next spring: Soil blocks. See videos on them
    on YouTube. Great concept and your plants will get off to a better start
    because they do not become root-bound. Also, in case you haven’t already,
    add rock dust to your soil in the spring or fall. See videos on YouTube.
    One other thing- I just read a book called "Four Season Harvest" by Eliot
    Coleman. It is a great book and I think you and your wife would enjoy
    reading it. Eliot and his wife live in Maine, zone 5.

    This summer has been the extremes of extremes, I think in the past 7 weeks
    we haven’t had a day below 30C, lots of days in the 35-37 range and no rain
    at all. Yesterday we got a down pour for 10 mins that was it….

  11. tobigforyou

    thx allot, I’ll add it to my favorites. Yeah, I was thinking those seeds
    must be incredible given that you are in Canada, the weather can be extreme
    at times, yet the garden still looks great.

  12. 50 Ducks In A Hot Tub

    The only thing we started in trays on April 7 was tomatoes, broccoli,
    cauliflower, peppers & brussels sprouts because our season is just too
    short, everything else seeds in ground June 7. Last year’s videos show we
    started everything by seed in the ground a lot of very late low producing
    plants last year, but we still got over 1,100 lbs though…

  13. 50 Ducks In A Hot Tub

    I put the link in the description, I’m telling you these heirloom seeds are
    freaking strong strains, we’ve had a heat wave since the middle of June, I
    thought at one point we were going to have to replant, but the plants all
    came back and they came back strong. Yesterday we processed over 45lbs of
    zuccihini & 25lbs of snow peas and the plants are still flowering. Everyone
    I know their gardens are failures this year, they all thought I was crazy
    for being an heirloom grower, now they understand

  14. 50 Ducks In A Hot Tub

    Thanks, the heatwave has officially broke the forecast starting today the
    temp is almost 8 degrees celius cooler going to have to wear cloths now….
