Re: Harrowsmith resurrected

I have a shelf full of the old issues. It was always my favourite. I’m going to be optimistic & hope it is great in its new incarnation!

Re: 7th Annual Canadian Autumn Seed Exchange

Hiya Jp,

Just message me your email & I will send all of the information along. There are a lot of generous gardeners, so even if you send in a couple of seed packs, you will get lots back.

Cheers,
Nicky

Re: 7th Annual Canadian Autumn Seed Exchange

Yes, I did. I found the Kahnawake Mohawk creamier tasting in soup & a touch larger than the Speckled Algonquin. They were both well worth growing again!

Re: What can I grow for the chickens?

Mine LOVE mint and currant tomatoes. They also like leafy veg, Kale, Cabbage & Brussels sprouts! I grow amaranth for them as well. I tie most things to the ceiling and let them swing it around the coop. They enjoy most herbs. Sage, Parsley, etc. Mint is by far their favourite though!

Re: Mount Forest Fall Fur and Feather

Nearly bought some young frizzle Silkies and a quartet of rose combs, but behaved! I got in line to buy 4 maran chicks & ended up giving one of my boxes to a family in front of us, not realizing that they were buying the marans (; lol. I thought that I was supposed to have good karma! Ah well... may...
