Hi Janice,

How much do they charge for compost delivery? I chatted with the guy before and I was told their site is in Okotoks, deliver charge is $95. I think it is too expensive.

Janice Miller-Young


Yes, that is the delivery charge.  But the total price works out to be the same as all the places that deliver in a big plastic bag IF you buy one cubic yard.  If you buy more than that (I always do) then Western Canada Compost is cheaper and the more you buy the better the deal so you could ask your neighbours if they want to split.  You can also pick up your own if you have a truck and that is the most reasonable cost, of course!  Their stuff is very good quality.

Cheers,
Janice

I did my planting on Easter Sunday and hope it will pay off with early crops. I have looked for Kale seeds everywhere, but can't find them. Do you know where I could get them without ordering? I want them now!

SJ

PS I should add I planted all of those things, except the kale.

Congratulations Sarah and I hope your early start pays off!  If you are using raised beds the soil is definitely warm enough already for planting.
Sorry, I havent shopped around recently for seeds.  Good luck with finding kale seeds!

I did my veggie planting today in my new garden planter boxes: lettuce, spinach, beets, carrots, green onion and red potatoes. I can hardly wait to see them grow!
Thanks for your help last summer!!

Christian

Thanks, Janice.

I saw red leaf kale seeds in Golden Acre the other day (McFayden). They should be available.

Hi Christina,
Great to hear and you are so welcome! I got some seeds in today too. For lettuce and spinach I usually plant more every week or so to make sure they don't all mature at the same time - although last year was so cool that my lettuce lasted all summer...!
And thanks for the update on kale seeds Christian!
