I must say, I am more than a little shocked by this entire thread. I am in the first couple of seasons of building up my permaculture garden. Our winters are so extreme, and our growing season so short, that it would take me several more Springs to establish my garden if I didn't have a greenhouse to harden off plants. I lost several berry bushes and a fruit tree last year, in part because of the short season. My plants are all regional. My greenhouse is all recycled windows and wood and I hope to have a rocket stove heating it soon enough.

James Stark,

How early is early for muskmelons in MB?

Hi Mark. I'm in the West End. I'd love to watch & help with the rocket stove project. Hopefully learn a bunch from your project and do the same or similar at my place. Keep me posted.

Right here in the heart of Winnipeg. Going to start an urban permaculture garden for the first time, once the asphalt is gone from the back 'yard'.

Hello fellow Permies. Newbie with a question here:

I will be planting a permaculture garden this Spring for the first time. I have a backyard which consists of nothing but asphalt with gravel and cement underneath. I'm wondering whether I should be tearing up the asphalt or should I simply plant over top of it. I know that the trees & plants will make short work of the asphalt but I am concerned about the toxicity of it in an organic garden.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Ed. (in Winnipeg, Canada)
