here you can see a hot raising bed build on a top of horse manure compost in spring , here salad , onions , alfa-alfa , and pumpkins , before the salad we have grow raddish.
you can see that it s on a totally no fertil sandy soil , that why we had to use lasagna bed and raising bed , behind have be same technique for carrots , we got around 30kg carrots in 6m long and 1m large . we had to build all our soil there , we use all that we had , peat + sand + horse and goat compost and ash and some time the silt from lake bottom .potatos we used lot of the technique of growing in straw for can plant them more early.

Hi
i known Your Challenge, Where i lived before in Lapland , we had the same problems, sometimes under 0 degrees in July for some hours. And lasagna bed it's a great solution. If you have access to horse manure (fresh) in spring, ones very great solution it's to build a hot compost and put 30/40cm of your growing soil on the top , the best its to put a protection on the top , greenhouse plastic for example, we have use every spring that techniques for plant who need a longtime for grow, you can almost win one month of growing season with that.
PS:strange you had succeeded with quinoa and not with amaranth, try again I think

Hi
I have lived in Lapland for 12 years in the border of Norwegian and Finland, I have use to build lasagna bed and growing vegetables on top of hot compost with some protection for the cold , very good for carrots, peas , salad and all fast growing vegetables, if you like other types of fast growing food, test: Saracens, amaranth, some cereal grow in less then 3months , some race of quinoa to , also parsley and others roots if you give them very rich soil or compost lasagna it's best , greenhouse with 2 cover will help a lot to .
