    Good morning friends! It is time to start planning for your garden if you
    are this far north ! This year I have lots of goals and am planning on
    trying to increase my production. I would love any feedback or tips you
    have!

  11. That’s how I see winter too, as a research time ;) We Canadians have to
    stay positive ;) I’m zone 4b and my jerusalem artichokes grow very well ;)
    And I,m trying to extend my growing time too this year. So best of luck
    with your plans and can’t wait to see results ;) 

  12. Yes perennials are great in the garden! I would love to grow kiwis! Have
    you planted blueberries? Great video Stephen! Thanks for sharing! Misilla

  13. Looks like you have it all sorted Sir..
    Cheers..

  14. looking good! I will be doing bio-intensive gardening this year as well :) 

  15. Great video and garden plan +Stephen Legaree ! It will be a very exciting
    year! The hardy kiwis and other perennials will be a great addition, and of
    course I’m looking forward to the biochar and rock dust trials. Thanks for
    the update!

  16. WARNING WARNING …. Horseradish will eventually take over the planet LOL.
    I like the blueprint idea but my gardens are here there and everywhere.
    Your’s look so neat and under control. 

  17. Oh neat! I did not know you used the SFG spacing. :) )
    You have so many interesting things going on in the garden this growing
    season. :) )

    Well done & looking forward to seeing how it comes out.

  19. Hey Stephen, Looks like you’ll be pretty busy and plenty determined too,
    with only 120-150 days in which to grow stuff… No wonder you are prepared
    to share your houses with the plants in order to get a head start on the
    season ;-) Thanks… Chris

    Hello,

    This is a very good video, I am a new gardener and in fact I do grow Kiwi.
    I grow the type of Kiwi that only requires one single plant instead of a
    male and female plant. One piece of advice I like to give you, be very
    careful about trying to grow plants in ashes commonly known as biochar.
    Each video that have watched none of the test are really conclusive and as
    far as rock dust I think you already have rocks in you soil that the
    microorganisms do each the minerals and that minerals is now part of your
    plants diet. So bine inexpensive bag of expensive rocks that were crushed
    be very careful. You keep up the great work

  21. One thing I’d like to add. SFG is good in principle but not always a one
    size fits all method. 2 examples, my largest tomatillo plant last year
    ended up taking up over 3′x3′ even after very heavy pruning. I tried to do
    SFG with it but it didn’t co-operate. #2 when I grow cherry type tomatoes
    I’ll get at least 2x the yield of 4 square foot plants if I just grow one
    big out. With non-cherry tomatoes i do like SFG though.

  22. *I think you have a wonderful plan **+Stephen Legaree**!*

    I’m looking forward to watching how your work in your cold frames and poly
    tunnels! :) I like your plan, I think you’re going to have a very
    successful and productive year. Nicely done.

  23. shocked to learn that kiwis grow there. nice plan.

  24. I was thinking of horseradish. I won’t now that I know where I can steal
    some. I’ve decided on chives and rhubarb perennials for this year.
