About me

Greetings from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The great white north! Here summers are short and winters are long. This just means that we have to extend our season in the spring and fall. I mostly focus on root vegetables simply because they can be harvested after our first frost (usually early October). They also store very well in our cold storage. I have started experimenting with bringing citrus in for the winter. Other winter experiments have included starting kiwifruit vines, shitake mushroom culture and self watering container construction for tomatoes and peppers.
