Your Farm in the City: An Urban-Dweller's Guide to Growing Food and Raising Animals by Lisa Taylor is the most complete book on urban farming, covering everything from growing organic produce and raising chickens, to running a small farm on a city lot or in a suburban backyard.
our mission at www.freshbid.com is to connect buyers and sellers, encourage our members to follow the best practices in the industry and increase the consumption of local produce. We realized that too many family-owned farms have been doing business with the same buyers for years. As a result, a surprising number of buyers are not aware of all produce availability in their local markets. To counter that phenomenon, we created a search engine that buyers can use for free to search and find all the fruits and vegetable available on their local, national and international markets.

Green Amaranth (amaranthus retroflexus), also known in Canada as Redroot Pigweed, is found from coast to coast. In the spring and early summer, this common weed is a delicacy which many look forward to removing from their garden to grace their table.
I must admit before going any further with this article that, I myself have always disliked dandelions. I know they are cute and fuzzy but they severely impact the color scheme of my lawn. I decided that with knowledge comes power, so I set out to learn about Taraxacum officinale or Lawnness infestess weedess the Dandelion.
Many Canadians waited all weekend to hear: "maybe I will" or "maybe I won’t". That pretty much sums up the Liberals' announcement made yesterday. I don’t know if the NDPs know something the rest of us don’t, but I am hearing that they are out trying to gather funds for an election run. Maybe this is just in case. I don’t know.
Well as I was sittin’ waiting for the weather report to come on the radio so I could decide if it was a good day to start the 2009 haying season or fix fence also known as donating blood to the local mosquito population. The radio news report says that Harper’s progress report is out and the Block and Ndp are against it and that the Liberals are going to read it then decide if they should trigger an election or not.
I keep hearing that there was a variety of peach tree known as the Canadian Peach. It was developed in Canada to withstand colder temperatures.
I have had some fairly reliable information passed on to me that in the early 1940’s to the early 1950’s there were peach trees in backyards in Deseronto, Picton, Kingston even down around Ottawa.
The Canadian Peach was not a free stone peach, but a clinging stone variety. It also did not yield as much fruit as the more popular less hardy varieties. In the long run caused it to slip below the radar and vanish.
I recently had a run in with a young Lady ( I am using the term loosely ). She was trespassing in my field next to the road, where her and the dog she was with had decided to take a look at some calves in the field.
I recently was sent an article from a member of our site talking about the fact that residents could only water their lawns every other week. They also stated that an inch a week would be adequate for the lawn.
To put this in to perspective an inch of rain on an acre of land is approximately 22,610.66 imperial gallons or 102,790.15 liters of water. If you take these numbers and figure that there are approximately 16 weeks of watering lawns it becomes clear how much is used.
