    So happy to have found you via facebook. My husband and I are headed to Neebing, Ontario to homestead on acreage that has been in our family for nearly 60 years. It has been our dream since we married over thirty years ago. An opportunity to retire early has afforded us the opportunity to follow that dream at this time. We relocated from California to our current home in Mississippi 12 years ago due to a job transfer. All of our experiences with gardening and raising animals has been in zones 7 and 8, Neebing is located in zone 4a and in addition to being very different temperature wise, the humidity there is usually around 30 % as opposed to the 80% we are used to here in the south. We are in the process of obtaining permits to build, have a well drilled and determine soil comp etc. We have a trip planned there for the month of May and will make our move there this time next year, We have so many questions…how to handle beehives in such weather, effective, efficient heating for the barn and greenhouse, how dependable is solar and wind power and the associated equipment hold up in the frigid cold of winter? Currently researching best crops for the area..we are considering apples as our main crop. We have decided to raise Highland cattle and Romney sheep but wonder how our chickens will handle the winter cold. I look forward to reading all of your posts, articles and answers to questions posed by others. Excited to learn about your journey!!!

    I am really enjoying your site about gardening. I have container garden And one of my questions is…when the containers are outside sitting on the ground, well mine are sitting in mulch, do I use the drain trays that came with the pots? Or do I let the pot just sit on the dirt so the slimey worms can crawl up into the pots through the drain holes? I notice when I water the plants the water is just sitting in the bottom trays and I have to manually empty them. Of all my online searching, I can’t find an answer to that question!
    Thanks so much!

      Kathleen, Thanks so much for letting me hear from you. I hope you continue to enjoy TFL Community. In answer to your question, the reason you can’t find a set answer is there isn’t really one. It’s a matter of personal preference. I don’t use the drain trays for the same reasons you stated. I don’t want to have to empty the trays, and they have to be emptied. As you know the water shouldn’t be allowed to stay there. I like worms! They’re a sign of healthy soil and they do so much for both soil and plants. I leave mine on the bare earth. I hope this helps you, if not, just let me know.
