My husband & I retired last year and are in the process of restoring a very old farmhouse on the South Shore of Nova Scotia (Zone 6a). Part of the retirement dream involves establishing an organic vegetable garden. We have recently dug up and screened the soil of about 3000 sq. ft. of what appears to have been the old vegetable garden/oxen grazing area. We bought this property in 2002, and are pretty sure that no pesticides/herbicides have been used on it over the past 10 years (actually, if ever). The soil is fairly acidic as we have wild blueberries and low bush cranberries growing prolifically in our bog. My veg garden is pretty big, so what I thought I would do is create 'wide/deep' rows, probably about 20 of them, and plant green manure in 1/2 of the beds and grow vegs in the other 1/2, rotating the halves each year. I am thinking that a mixture of buckwheat and red clover would work well for me, but I am having a terrible time trying to find organic sources for these seeds. I've combed the internet and am finding that the U.S. sources won't (can't?) ship to Canada, and while I did find one site in Canada for organic buckwheat seed, you had to buy something like 75 kg of the stuff. Far more than I need. If anyone has any information about where I can get organic red clover and/or buckwheat seeds in reasonably quantities, in Canada, I would greatly appreciate your help. OR, if you have any ideas about what cover crops might work better for me in my situation (and perhaps more readily available), I would love to hear them. Thanks to everyone that posts to this forum and so willingly shares their knowledge. This is my first post, but I have learned a lot from reading!
