That’s why our winter lives are focused on getting ready for spring

Paul Yanko, Website Ph: 306-665-3591


hey say home is where the heart is, an old and perhaps hackneyed phrase that nonetheless chimes with all of us.

That’s where it all begins on the home quarter. You don’t build a beautiful pool because you want a dip now and then; you build it so family and friends can gather and have fun together. You don’t plant a garden full of fresh vegetables and fruit trees because you’re keeping up with the neighbours. You plant it to nourish and nurture your family. You don’t create a shelterbelt just for fun, either. You do it for the environment, for your family’s comfort, for capturing a little bit of extra moisture on a wind-swept plain. You take care of your tools, so they work when you need them. You keep an eye out for coyotes and other predators, to protect your calves, dogs and other baby animals — not to mention small children. You feed your garden with manure, because it’s a natural way to nourish it. It’s a farm, and it’s home. There is the annual round of the main work of the place — the seeding and the spraying and the harvesting. And this is also where you live. Because there is heart, there is much to do, and much to learn in all seasons. It may be white and silver outside right now, but by January, we will all be thinking about seed catalogues and tree varieties and whether there is rust on the shears, because we just can’t help ourselves. Our winter lives are focused on getting ready for spring. Hopefully this late December edition will cheer you with its bright and colourful photos, and inform you with its home based stories. Think green, and take heart that spring is not really that far away.

CARIBBEAN-STYLE RESORT NESTLED IN ALBERTA Caribbean style resort at home in Alberta | Dugout comes with seadoo, inflatable toys and deck furniture

A white plastic liner gives a dugout the illusion of white sandy beaches at Jerry and Marina Leussink’s farm near Sundre, Alta. |


S » A sandbox is just one of the

additions to the dugout that make it a more enjoyable location.

UNDRE, Alta. —When Jerry Leussink built a dugout for swimming on his Alberta farm, he went a little crazy. His dugout is larger than most small town swimming pools and fancier than some Caribbean resorts. “You’ll never see another farm dugout like this.” With a white liner, deck chairs, nautical ropes and an endless supply of floaty things, Leussink’s dugout is a far cry from most dugouts where country kids swam on hot summer days. “I had a pond, but I wanted to go 10 steps further.” Seven years ago Leussink rented his brother’s track hoe to dig the 110 foot by 90 foot dugout near his Sundre home snugged up to the Rocky Mountains in western Alberta. After three years, he pumped out the water and with a crew of 10, lined the dugout with a heavy, white plastic liner to keep down the weeds and mud and make the dugout a focal point on the farm. “When you tell someone you have a pond they think of something with weeds in it. They haven’t seen anything like this on a farm. “If it wasn’t for the spruce trees you’d think you were in the Caribbean.” Four boulders on each corner anchor the plastic liner securely in place. Along the sides, Leussink and his wife, Marina, hand placed thousands of washed rocks to secure the

liner and prevent debris from seeping from the grass into the water. Each year Leussink adds a few more touches. On the west side is a wooden deck for dancing and sand box for the kids. The former owner of the farm was a collector and Leussink recycled a collection of posts and rope to give it a more nautical theme. “Every year I get an idea and add a little bit more.” He is tossing around the idea of making a wood-heated hot tub and possibly a change room that could double as a sauna in the winter when the dugout is used for skating parties. The farm has become the permanent home for family reunions and parties. For Marina’s 50th birthday, she requested inflatable toys for the pool for everyone to float on during family pool parties. “It’s a virtual zoo.” A small battery-powered seadoo is tossed into the mix of water toys and slowly putts around the pool pulling a boat full of children. “They have so much fun. No one wants to miss a reunion.” Having the fanciest dugout in the area isn’t without its share of work. Leussink estimates it takes 15 to 20 hours a month to clean and maintain. Over the years, he has learned a few tricks for keeping it clean. A longhandled scrub brush is used to scrub the brown film that gathers on the plastic liner. A swimming pool net is used to clean out the leaves and bugs that blow into the dugout.


Leussink uses a homemade vacuum to clean out some of the debris on the bottom of the dugout. Leussink has also learned the importance of chlorine, algaecides and pond clarifiers to help reduce the maintenance and keep the pond looking nice. “It is a lot of work. Over the past years I have learned to maintain it efficiently with the right chemicals on a regular basis. Once it’s under control it’s not so bad.” A large home made vacuum attached to a gas pump helps remove the silt and sand and a fire hose helps circulate the air and wash down the sides. A solar-powered aerator on a timer is a necessary tool for circulating the water and keeping it clean. While the pool requires work to keep it in good condition, Leussink didn’t want

just another farm dugout that eventually gets filled with silt and weeds. “If I go swimming in a dugout full of weeds, it’s not as much fun. This is cleaner than a lot of rivers and lakes to swim in.” It’s not unusual for Leussink and his wife to slip down for a dip after midnight, or for friends and family to pull their campers to the farm on the weekends for a campout near the mountains without the crowds. If he was to do it again, Leussink said he would build the dugout smaller to make it easier to maintain. Without calculating in labour, he estimates it cost $18,000 to build. “Most people when they come here are awestruck.” access=subscriber section=news,none,none

June Flanagan discusses concepts of xeriscaping and using native plants in southern Alberta yards and gardens at a gathering in Lethbridge in June 2011. Flanagan, who has a masters in plant science and another degree in environmental horticulture, is the author of several gardening books. | BARB GLEN PHOTO


1. Irrigate.



ry conditions are more common on the Prairies than excess moisture, the last two years notwithstanding. Gardeners are well aware of this and many have embraced the concepts of xeriscaping that include practical ways to use water in yards and gardens. June Flanagan knows all about gardening in dry areas. The Lethbridge author was a student in an Arizona environmental horticulture program when the concepts of xeriscaping were first spawned. Since then, she has obtained a masters degree in plant science and a degree in environmental horticulture, and has written several gardening books. Among them are Native Plants for Prairie Gardens and The Prairie Gardener’s Sourcebook. Flanagan is an often-sought speaker in southern Alberta gardening circles. She told a group of Lethbridge gardeners this summer about the seven concepts of xeriscapes that have stood the test since their conception in the late 1970s.

“Irrigate before 10 o’clock in the morning,” says Flanagan, and do it deeply but infrequently. “By doing that you put down quite a bit of water at one time and then you wait until the soil starts to dry out before you irrigate again. What happens is you’ll encourage deep rooting in your plants.” She advises watering at soil level with soaker hoses or a drip system. A shallow basin around trees, with the rim extending to the edge of the leaf canopy, can be filled with water and left to dry out before watering again. Lawns are major water users and Flanagan advises limited space devoted to lawns if xeriscape is the goal. “It’s a good idea to reduce the size of your lawn and your bedding out plants because these areas need about an inch … of water every week.” Gardeners who use sprinklers should calculate how much water is applied in a given period. One way to do this is to set out a shallow container and time sprinkler activity until one inch of water is applied. Then users will know how

long to let a sprinkler run with each water application. “Remember that all of the plants you install will need regular irrigation to get the roots established,” Flanagan added. Even native plants need some water, and trees and shrubs will need regular watering for at least the first few years after planting, until they are well established. 2. Mulch. Flanagan said this is an easy concept to apply without making any other changes to the garden. “Every part of your garden should be mulched except for the lawn, even the containers,” she says. She favours organic mulches including wood chips, which decompose slowly and hold moisture in the soil. Around trees and shrubs, she recommends chips about eight centimetres deep, tapered to be shallower near the trunk. Wood chips are not a good choice for the vegetable garden because they are chunky and can tie up nitrogen needed by plants, Flanagan says.

She recommends lighter mulches such as compost or grass clippings for the vegetable garden. She likes organic mulches better than rock mulches because they insulate the soil and encourage plant root growth, prevent frost heaving and eventually add organic matter to the soil. “A rock chip mulch won’t. They will help hold water. However, they don’t add organic matter to the soil. They increase the heat load on your plants, which sometimes means you have to water your plants more often. They also can increase the heat load on your home.” Rocks are also traps for bits of soil and weed seeds, leading to higher maintenance. They are also difficult to move if changes to the garden are planned. 3. Maintain the landscape. “The biggest thing here is to weed, because weeds will take moisture and compete with your plants for moisture.” Regular weeding and fertilizing will keep plants healthy so they need less water. It also reduces the need for chemical controls. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

Canada has nine zones, ranging from zero (the harshest) to eight (the mildest). Each zone is divided into two parts, with “a” being harsher than “b.” Minimum and maximum temperatures, snow cover, rainfall, wind patterns and the average number of frost-free days were all taken into account when creating the zone map. But as gardeners know, our weather patterns vary from year to year, especially with the effects of global warming. In addition, the location (south side versus north side) of a plot can affect the growing conditions for plants. How do you use it? As a general rule, if you live in Zone 6, you should have good success with plants hardy in Zone 6 and up to three zones colder. Plants hardy to Zone 8 would never survive the winter in your yard. So, although the zone map is a useful starting point, consider your own yard’s conditions and your area’s weather fluctuations when choosing yearly plantings.

4. Design to conserve water. Flanagan recommends that water conservation be part of garden design. Choose plants that suit the conditions and place plants with similar water and sunlight needs together. She suggests putting plants with higher water needs, including lawn, near the house for ease of watering. This can help cool the house in summer. Trees and shrubs can also serve this purpose. 5. Reduce or eliminate lawn. Flanagan says most lawn grasses are cool season plants that go dormant when it gets too hot. Adding water is the only way to keep them growing and green. “I don’t advise you not to water, because our summers are so short, we want to enjoy whatever bit of plant growth that we can get. But I will advise you to reduce the size of your lawn,” says Flanagan. Sod is hard to remove so she suggests doing it in stages. Remove some lawn each year and replace it with

6. Choose water-wise plants. Flanagan recommends the use of native plants that are adapted to the climate and thus drought tolerant. In 2008, she helped Lethbridge volunteers build a native plant garden near the city’s museum. The variety ensures that something is blooming throughout the growing season. “You don’t need to give up beauty,” says Flanagan, noting the attributes of shrub roses, mock orange, lilacs and evergreens. “Lots of things that we consider classic garden plants also use water wisely.” 7. Replenish the soil with organic matter. Mulch and compost are the keys to this goal, Flanagan says. She recommends compost applications to vegetable gardens just before planting and again around July 1.

About the Canadian Plant Hardiness Zone Map The Canadian Plant Hardiness Zone Map was revised in 2000 using weather data from 1961-90. The map includes the effect of elevation and climate-change models and plant survival data for trees and shrubs, which are the northern and southern extremes where a given species can survive and reproduce successfully. At the nursery If you live in Zone 5, look for plants that are hardy to Zone 5 or lower (plant labels don’t differentiate between parts “a” and “b”). Perennials from Zone 6 or higher will likely be sold as annuals in your area because they aren’t guaranteed to survive the winter. Ask a garden centre professional for help.





WHAT IS A XERISCAPE? It is a yard or garden that follows principles of being practical and environmentally friendly. The term xeriscape comes from the Greek word ‘xeros’ meaning dry and ‘scape’ as in landscape. Xeriscaping is not the same as zero-scaping and does not focus on rocks, stone and gravel but on the following seven principles. Planning and design • Sketch your yard, including decks, trees and sheds

• Where lawn is hard to grow or maintain, consider replacing grass with drought tolerant ground covers, perennials or shrubs. Include a path, a bench or a sculpture. Water efficiently • Group plants by water needs and zone lawn areas separately because they use the most water. Lawns require one inch per week (2.5 cm).

• Zone each area by activity or purpose

• Use irrigation systems that place water directly on ground such as drip systems or soaker hoses.

• Colour code areas by amount of sunlight, precipitation and water needs.

• Avoid sprinklers that shoot water high into the air, produce a fine mist or oscillate.

Improve the soil Add two or more inches of organic matter like compost or aged manure and mix to a six-inch depth. Create practical lawn areas • Limit lawn area to what is need and where it provides a function. • Choose grass seed mixes that have low water requirements.

• Watering in the early morning is best because it is cooler and allows leaves to dry during the day. • Use rain barrels and water less when it rains. Select appropriate plants and group by water needs • Place plants with high water needs in low-lying areas that will

naturally receive drainage and are convenient for irrigation. • Select plants based on structure, colour, texture or fragrance. Plants that are native to the Prairies are accustomed to the dry climate and naturally require less water. Use mulch to reduce evaporation • Mulches reduce evaporation, cool the root zone, reduce weed growth, slow erosion and look great. Wood chips and shredded bark feed the soil with organic matter. Maintain your xeriscape • Prune dead or diseased branches anytime. Most other pruning can be done in winter or early spring. • Remove spent flowers throughout the summer before they mature into seed heads. • Aerate lawns in spring and mow regularly to height of three inches. Leave clippings to provide nutrients. • Fertilize according to plant needs. More is not better. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

HOW TO HARDEN PLANTS To get bedding plants ready to go outdoors for the first time, put them at ground level in a shaded, protected place and water when dry. Cover at night with a blanket supported on sticks, or bring them into an unheated garage to prevent frost damage. Do not put plants in a warm place or they will not get used to night temperatures. The process takes about a week, depending on conditions. Source: Vale Greenhouse

LACK DIAMOND, Alta. — Vale Greenhouses may be one of southern Alberta’s best kept secrets. Located at the edge of Black Diamond, southwest of Calgary, visitors pass through the gates of an English style stone fence where they can enjoy an alpine retreat, a kinetic garden or they may sit in one of the carefully planned gardens built around a theme of colour and style. Besides being an oasis in the dry foothills climate, this greenhouse owned and operated by Katrina Diebel offers plants that are acclimated to thrive in southern Alberta conditions. All the plants from the greenhouse are grown there and may take several years of nurturing before a customer sees them. The clients receive advice on what will survive, unlike picking up a generic tray of bedding plants from a local big box store. The greenhouse opened in 1976. Ann Vale, the original owner, started all her own plants with a goal of producing items that would grow well in local conditions. In 1990, her goddaughter, Katrina, took over and introduced new plants and horticulture ideas to a wealthy, well-travelled clientele that had seen European gardens and wanted to create some of that splendour at home. Diebel travels extensively to find new items and has found plants do not have to be native but should come from an area similar to here. Often plants from Argentina or Russia may work here as opposed to those transplanted from Colorado, Montana or British Columbia. “Southern Alberta is extremely unique. I have never found another place with the cold nights and the high alkalinity in soil,” she said. “If you are going to bring in new perennials, you have to find it in an area that would be relative to our area,” she said.

Chinook winds can hit at any time, carrying the snow cover away and drying the soil out in summer, making plants vulnerable to sunburn even in winter. Combined with the high elevation and glacial type soil, gardening can be a challenge. “There are a couple of different problems. Firstly, all our soil is clay based and it is very high in alkalinity. It basically is early soil. The water we use is limestone-based because it comes from limestone mountains,” she said. Gardeners looking for advice often read the labels attached to a tray of bedding plants but those instructions may not apply to prairie growing zones. “Never read those little tags because they come from the southern States. Good to 30 below doesn’t mean anything. Basically we tell our customers you are in a chinook zone two.” Prince George, B.C., is zone two but it has long days, warm nights and peaty soil. By comparison, there is less growth in southern Alberta because the nights are too cold. This greenhouse works year round and plants offered for sale in 2014 may be started in 2011. Seeding starts in September and continues every week throughout the winter. The plants are started in a greenhouse and items like pansies and petunias are hardened off in cold frames. “They are completely bomb proof,” she said. Each spring the retail part of the business offers 3,000 varieties of basket stuffers, 10,000 one gallon annual grasses and 75,000 one gallon, 45,000 half gallon and 35,000 three and a half inch pots of perennials propagated from seeds, divisions or cuttings. A complete history is available so staff and customers know the proper names of plants, where they came from and when and how they were propagated. “We collect our own seed from alpine meadows and people go for walks and bring me seeds,” she said.

She diplomatically tells people they only want alpine plants and noxious weeds are not welcome. Gardening enthusiasts start shopping in April. They receive planting advice, and there are posters with advice around the centre. “If it is the right plant and it is hardy in your zone, they should grow to beat the band. It doesn’t matter if it is crappy weather for the first three weeks. Everything will always catch up. At the end of the season everything will finish the same,” she said. This applies in cereal crops, vegetable gardens or ornamentals. “Sometimes you use plants that are borderline hardy here but they will always struggle. They don’t like the soil or they grow very slowly and some things traditionally grow slowly,” she said. For example, a pine tree may take 35 years to grow. People also need to get educated about what might succeed here and what substitutes are possible. A person may try to grow lavender but would be better off with salvia. It is the same colour and grows bigger than lavender, which is not suited here. “Why would you want to grow something that isn’t hardy?” she asked. Diebel and her staff do not develop plants or breed seeds. “We experiment by using plant material that we know will grow here,” she said. “We are always finding new plant material that is perfectly hardy here.” There is also space at the greenhouse for planned gardens that follow a formal theme so customers see what is possible. Diebel has developed a white garden, blue garden, a space with texture as well as a kinetic garden full of plants that blow and hum in the wind. However, nothing stays the same at this place and if new plants propagate and spring up unexpectedly, that is all good. “The best gardening happens by accident,” she said. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

Nursery eyes native plants to enhance survival Success creates satisfaction | Native plants are less susceptible to disease


Ken Wright checks plants growing in the nursery west of Calgary. He and his wife planted wild strawberries as ground cover. They have designed their gardens and the nursery using only native plants and created a setting with layers of low lying plants, mid-sized bushes and tall trees that could live for hundreds of years.

TOP: Trees grown from seed are removed from open flats and transplanted into individual plugs where they grow larger. Up to 500 willows may grow in a flat. The Wrights select the most vigorous for customers. ABOVE: Silver coloured leaves do better in dry regions because they reflect sunlight. LEFT: Vale’s Greenhouse at Black Diamond, Alta., is owned by Katrina Diebel. The gardens have been created throughout the grounds using local, hardy plants.

PRINGBANK, Alta. — Ken Wright carefully checks tiny saplings growing in a protected bed to decide which to pull and which ones might become mighty oaks. The saplings are among the thousands of trees that Ken and Pam Wright grow from seed at their 16acre nursery. The oaks are grown from acorns collected from a heritage tree in Edmonton. The Wrights have spent a lifetime growing trees and shrubs and are probably the only ones growing native species in this area. “There is very little actual seed production in Alberta,” Ken said. “Most of the nurseries are ornamental with introduced plant material.” Growing local ensures greater plant survival and prevents the introduction of unwanted diseases and insects. “That is our advantage in collecting seeds. We are not importing those things,” he said. The Wrights learned their craft in Montana and ran a nurser y in Cochrane, Alta., before selecting their current site at Springbank on the west side of Calgary. They have been at Bow Point Nurseries since 1988, gathering seeds and cuttings from the area to produce hardy native trees, shrubs, flowers and grasses. It is a time consuming task that requires patience and wisdom. “You need background knowledge in order to know propagation and then (know) what you do with a oneyear-old pine and not lose it,” said Ken, whose background is botany. Local knowledge of climate, altitude and soil is also needed because little research has been conducted on native tree production. The nursery, with its 4,000 foot altitude, has cold nights and a short, dry growing season. “We wanted to go somewhere where it was really hard to grow and tough and miserable because there has never been a research station or anything on the west side of Highway 2. This is the transition zone between the foothills and the prairie,” said Pam. Seeds are started in flat containers in a greenhouse. Up to 500 trees may grow in a flat. They are thinned out a year later and eventually placed in plugs for customers. Other trees, such as willows, are started from cuttings. Germination rates are 20 to 80 percent. “It takes testing and trialing. Not everything grows,” Ken said. They grow a wide variety of poplars, spruce, alders, aspens and junipers as well as wild flowers, grasses and shrubs such as the wild rose. The farmyard is full of native greenery that is welcoming and provides shelter from cold north winds or westerly chinooks. The yard looks different every year as the canopies of plants and trees grow and change. “It is designed to be successional and changing so as the overstory increases and the shade increases, the understory changes,” he said. It is also meant to be pleasing year round. “We have eight months of the year

with no leaves so the plants really should have something to bring interest to the landscape,” Ken said. That may come from trees with an interesting shape or colourful autumn leaves and bark like a dogwood, pussy willows and prairie sage. The nursery is surrounded by country subdivisions, and developers have planted spruce and poplar because they grow fast and are consistent in size and shape. However, they may not always be the best choice, even for a windbreak. “People plant spruce trees when there are so many other things to plant,” said Pam. “They are conical, and anything conical, the wind just goes around, which means the sound goes around. Developers put them in because they can get consistent ones.” The Wrights ship trees for windbreaks, reclamation projects and landscaping. They remind clients that trees and plants are no longer native outside the 100 kilometre range because the ecosystem is different. Alberta’s prairies, parklands, foothills and alpine regions are all unique ecosystems. “Our advantage is we can ship in any direction from here,” Ken said. Trees may go to Manitoba, Montana, British Columbia’s Lower Mainland, northern Alberta or mountain parks. A tree may grow three feet tall in Alberta but reach eight feet in B.C.

local landscapers and gardeners seeking design and growing advice. People tend to plant trees too deeply and then give them too much water. “Overwatering is our most common call of what’s wrong with my tree. Ninety-five percent of the time, we can say stop watering,” said Ken. The Wrights grow their trees in a mulched bed for the first year and water them once a month, even though home gardeners are reminded to give their trees plenty of water. “Those are needy, high maintenance trees that are not programmed to live in this climate with our 14 inches of rain a year,” he said. “We don’t have an irrigation system so we have to plan when is the best time for things to survive out here without any water.” They plant in early spring or fall with more going in during the later season so the trees establish better. The ground is warmer but the days are cooler and the trees draw less moisture. Xeriscaping is a popular landscaping trend, but Ken said it doesn’t have to be gravel, cacti and a few silver leafed plants. “This whole nursery is xeriscaped. If you go to Banff, that is a xeriscape. Landscapes don’t need to be watered and shouldn’t be watered. They should be designed not to be watered. There is no reason to have an irrigation system if you plant it properly and use the right things.”

Native trees and plants are more likely to survive weather conditions and live longer. Some local trees are probably 500 to 1,000 years old. Trees will not grow in the hot and dry areas of southeastern Alberta, yet wildflowers and grasses thrive. “There are parts of the province that are too cold, too windy, too harsh,” Ken said. Added Pam: “It would take some really good quality plant material to do it, but a lot of people have just given up.” Some customers may think it is more expensive to plant native trees and plants, but they are more likely to survive the conditions and live longer. Some local trees are probably 500 to 1,000 years old. Prairie settlers brought plants from their homes that did not always succeed. They planted trees for shelterbelts in the 1930s, and many are starting to look bedraggled. “Realistically, every 10 years you should put in another row just to keep it alive,” Ken said. Planting native trees that are adapted to local diseases is another advantage. For example, this year’s wet conditions encouraged a canker called shepherd’s hook to grow on aspens. “It is not abnormal. This plant evolved with this disease so technically it is not a disease because it is associated with the plant. It doesn’t affect the health and vigour of it. It grows past it,” he said. The Wrights handle many large contracts, but they also work with

The Wrights are also low maintenance gardeners. However, they also said trees and shrubs can be pruned because in nature, wildlife nibbles on them and trims them back. They also recommend proper planting distances because too often home landscapers plant trees too close together or too near fences or buildings. They suggest planting about 10 feet apart so the adults can touch. “Trees touch in nature. Part of the trick with naturalizing is density,” he said. They try new things each year and share their experiences. “Everybody needs to be educated. It is the major thing we have to do in order to have a unique line of plants.” The Wrights have a website and visitors are able to see a changing landscape that can survive drought and temperature swings. Sticking with natives offers predictability. “From a farming standpoint, they are predictable,” Ken said. “We know when we put seedlings in, in three years I am going to have this size of plants whether we have a dry cold winter or a wet winter or cold spring.” They also want customer satisfaction and success. “That’s our job — to fulfill people’s expectations. They buy plants and put them in the ground and there is always that optimism and vision,” he said. For more information, visit www. access=subscriber section=news,none,none





STOCKED POND PROVIDES FUN FOR FAMILY Trout perfect for ponds | Choose non-native fish varieties to avoid pitfalls BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

im Luco is run off his feet in the summer as he manages a fruit and vegetable farm frequented by visitors who come to buy his produce. So when the day is mostly done and there’s a little time to relax, he goes out to his pond and feeds the trout. Handfuls of fish pellets bring the rainbows splashing to the surface, their shiny bodies and tails flashing in the last sunshine of the day. Luco’s face lights up in a smile as he watches the action. He rarely fishes in the pond, but his grandchildren, ages five and three, revel in the activity. “It’s great for the grandkids to come out, even little kids, and see them catch a fish. It just thrills them to the bone,” said Luco. His enjoyment matches the stories heard by Peter Thomson, owner of the McNabb Trout Hatcher y in Saskatoon. “Lots of people tell me that one of the biggest joys they have is not the actual fishing, but going out with their kids and grandkids in the evening with a pail of fish pellets and throwing them out there just to watch them hit.” Thomson, a retired schoolteacher, sells rainbow trout fingerlings, mostly as a hobby. “I’m still dealing with schools,” he quipped. Like most hatcheries, he buys trout eggs from the United States and hatches and raises the fish to fingerling size, ready for sale to farmers and acreage owners who want to stock their ponds and dugouts. “It’s really not a terribly expensive hobby,” said Thomson. “You can put 100 two-inch fish in your dugout for $70 or $75. If you get lucky and they all survive, you’ve got 75 people fed.” Some people keep the fish for a season and others attempt to overwinter them and increase size. Trout will not reproduce in ponds because they need specific conditions, including swift flowing water. New fish can be added each year, if desired, because trout don’t feed on each other. Luco’s pond is 20 feet deep and holds about half a million gallons. He stocked it with 200 fish, which were about 14 inches in size this summer. He can overwinter his fish because he has pond aeration and depth. “I’ve left them in there five years, six years. They’ll get three or four pounds, probably. They’re like aquarium fish. They grow to the size of the aquarium. They usually don’t get a whole bunch longer but they get

Jim Luco’s trout pond south of Lethbridge is about 20 feet deep with steep banks and an aeration system. The depth allows him to overwinter about 150 rainbow trout. Fish metabolism slows in winter so there is no need to feed them, but aeration of a small area is necessary to provide sufficient oxygen. | BARB GLEN PHOTOS quite a bit deeper and fatter, broader.” Thomson said the water body should be at least 16 feet deep with aeration to overwinter the fish. Lorne Louden, who operates Ackenberry Trout Farms in Camrose, Alta., concurs. “A good pond is deeper than 15 feet and hopefully somewhere in the

neighbourhood of 600,000 gallons minimum, and up. The deeper the pond, the more fish” it can accommodate, Louden said. He sells fingerlings and pond equipment, and finds himself spending many hours on the phone answering questions about ponds and fish. Just because a pond has

healthy fish one year doesn’t mean the success will continue. “What discourages people is lack of education,” he said. “They just (don’t) realize that the pond has aged and now they need aeration, so people should plan for that if they’re ever building a pond for fish. It’s best to build a pond access=subscriber section=news,none,none


600,000 gallons”

HOME QUARTER where power is available. “People build ponds out in the middle of nowhere, where they can’t even get a windmill to aerate it, and then they get very discouraged that they spend $10,000 building a pond and they didn’t put it where it would be a continuous fish pond for the next 10, 20 years so they could amortize their investment. I’d be frustrated too if I got into that situation.” Louden said aeration also reduces nutrient load in the water and encourages insect growth so the trout have more food. If a pond is aerated in winter, the fish can usually sustain themselves without supplemental feeding. Stocking rates are a common question. Naturally, it depends on the size of the pond. Louden recommended 150 fish for a 100 by 150 foot pond. Thomson assesses it as 200 to 300 trout per aquatic acre. Predators can be an issue. Luco said the steep sides on his pond discourage wading birds. “They’ll come and stand on the dock, but they can’t get in to feed, so they’re not much of a problem and only with the smaller trout. “The cormorants, on the other hand, will dive and clean you right out, so you’ve just got to watch for them and scare them off when they come around.” For some farmers, the attraction of birds and other wildlife is part of having a pond. “It doesn’t take long for things like blue herons to discover that you have fish in your dugout,” Thomson said. “I don’t think any farmer in Saskatchewan is upset with visits from the occasional blue heron.” However, Louden said if fish protection is the main goal, he’s had success with pond dye, which limits birds’ ability to see the fish. He has also used electric wire to discourage herons, and thin filament fishing line stretched across a pond to discourage diving birds like ospreys. “The hawks come down, they don’t see it at first, but after they spin out of control and land in water a few times, they’ll go to a different pond after that.” As for feeding the fish, a pond or dugout with a freshwater feed might supply enough freshwater shrimp for the fish to eat, supplemented by whatever insects they catch. Luco buys fish food from Viterra for his nightly fish watching activities. A 20 kilogram bag costs about $20, so he’s not concerned about the cost. The amount of food available will affect fishing success, Louden said. If the fish have lots of freshwater shrimp to eat, they won’t be eager to

rise to a fishing line. “We’ve even had customers that swore that there was no fish in their pond” because fish were eating shrimp instead. Trout, the most common fish used to stock ponds and dugouts, are sensitive to heat, as Luco discovered during one hot summer about five years ago, when the pond temperature rose to 28 C. “Their bodies couldn’t take the change in temperature to come from the bottom up to the top to feed and it would basically cook them, so they just perished.” Aeration solved the problem. It can also keep algae in check but sometimes other measures are needed for this common pond problem. Louden said effective algaecides are available. Luco uses barley straw, but Louden cautions that pond and dugout owners should know what they are doing before they rely on that remedy. “I get very discouraged to see these black bales of barley straw in our customers’ ponds and causing subsequent algae blooms. So if used right, it can be beneficial. If used wrong, it’s a negative thing,” said Louden. “(Luco) is one of the few that caught onto it a long time ago and did it exactly like he was told to do it.” Moving water and replacing straw twice a year are among the ways to make it effective. Otherwise, it can become a stinky mess that adds to unwanted pond nutrients. Most people stock their ponds in April or May. Some net or catch them in fall unless they plan to overwinter. Albertans who want to stock their ponds or dugouts require a licence, which costs $10 per year. A first-time licence costs $40 because it includes an inspection to ensure no fish can escape into public waters. That is partly to avoid whirling disease, a devastating fish ailment, Louden said. “It’s a nasty disease in the U.S. and because we’re free of it, they shut down our borders to importation of any live salmonoids.” No licences or fees are required in Saskatchewan to stock a privately owned water body. However, they may not be stocked with native fish such as walleye, pike and pickerel, and no stocking is allowed if there is potential discharge into a waterway. In Manitoba, licences are required if a dugout is used for a hatchery or commercial fishery operations. In British Columbia, a permit is required to stock fish in a dugout and only trout are allowed. Grass carp are prohibited.



ABOUT THAT POND… Q: Why do I get more plants and algae in my pond each year? How do I stop this? A: Aquatic plants and algae problems are typically caused by increased nutrients in the pond. Nutrients enter the pond from leaves, die-off of aquatic plants, wildlife and runoff. The delicate balance of phytoplankton, zooplankton, plants and fish is changed when a pond becomes highly eutrophic, or water rich in nutrients. The bottom lacks oxygen when decaying matter consumes it faster than it is replenished by aeration. Nutrients once consumed by bacteria or absorbed by sediment are released. What can you do? Reduce nutrients from runoff entering the pond. Install

bottom based aeration with a good air diffuser to keep dissolved oxygen above the sediment layer. Use natural pond bacteria, which usually come in premeasured water soluble packs that are tossed into the pond throughout the summer. Q: Why do my fish look healthy in the afternoon but die in the morning? A: Dissolved oxygen levels fluctuate with the time of day and activities in the pond. During the night, plants and algae stop producing oxygen and start using oxygen. Fish and aquatic life activity such as feeding also uses up dissolved oxygen. Wind and wave action or splashing water are often not enough to support large fish populations,

especially during late summer. Add an aeration device with a proper diffuser. The oxygen level should be at least 7.5 ppm in the summer and five ppm in the winter to sustain fish and other aquatic life. Q: How do I prevent my air line from freezing during the winter? A: There are three solutions. • Bury the line below the frost line. • Use insulated line between the compressor and the pond or lake. • Use a freeze control unit after the compressor that contains 99 percent rubbing alcohol. This uses a lot of alcohol if the line does not enter the dugout or pond quickly. Source: Lorne Louden, pond consultant, Ackenberry Trout Farms

Value of shelterbelts evident when wind blows Beautify and protect | Trees provide shelter for animals and birds and protect yard from wind, which can reduce heating costs BY WILLIAM DEKAY SASKATOON NEWSROOM

T » Since the federal government’s

prairie shelterbelt program was initiated in 1901, more than 600 million tree seedlings have been provided to western Canadian farmers. Of those, 450 million have been planted to protect farm yards, while 150 million seedlings have been planted in field shelterbelts, protecting 6.2 million acres of land.

here was a time, during early settlement of the Prairies, that homesteaders believed it was impossible to grow trees and became resigned to a wind-swept existence. Seedlings brought in from Eastern Canada failed to grow because they were non-hardy species. Tenacious farmers using native species had better success in establishing the first shelterbelts. The Canadian government’s cooperative program was established in 1901 with 58,000 seedlings and 47 farmers. By 1904, this had increased to 1.8 million seedlings and to 7.7 million by 1917. To date, more than 600 billion seedlings have been distributed throughout the prairies for shelterbelts. Since the Dirty Thirties, planting shelterbelts has been seen as a way to provide long-term soil protection and trap moisture in the form of snow.

Preventing soil erosion is only one reason for planting trees. “I think we have to rethink all the services and good benefits in wet or dry years that trees bring into the landscape,” says Henry de Gooijer of the Agroforestry Development Centre in Indian Head, Sask. There is a definite trend to the rate farmers plant trees depending on wet and drought cycles, says de Gooijer, who also farms near Kelliher, Sask. Prolonged drought in the 1980s resulted in the greatest annual number of field shelterbelts being established in 1990. Wet and normal precipitation years are best for establishment and growth, but tree planting increases when it suddenly becomes clear that the lack of trees is a problem. “If you don’t have a dust storm, it’s not apparent to you that there could be a potential problem,” says de Gooijer. “When things are under stress, that’s when people get aware again of the fragility or sustainability of their system.” access=subscriber section=news,none,none

SHELTERBELT BENEFITS A study prepared for Agriculture Canada on the benefits of shelterbelts noted the following improvements can occur where shelterbelts are planted: Soil ■ Reduced soil erosion ■ Shoreline protection Air ■ Reduced odours from animal production sites ■ Reduced pesticide drift (also indirectly affects water quality) ■ Reduced greenhouse gas accumulation in the atmosphere Water ■ Improved water quality through filtering ■ Floodplain management ■ Waste-water management

Neil and Pat Buchanan learned the hard way about the benefits of establishing shelterbelts on their Francis, Sask., grain farm. They realized they needed to do something to protect their land from erosion after a crop of

lentils was destroyed by a severe wind. It cut the plants off at the ground and they had to reseed 100 acres. “The wind literally blew topsoil right off the hills and the topsoil around here is pretty decent,” says Pat.

HOME QUARTER In spring 1989, the organic farmers planted 100,000 trees and shrubs over 21 kilometres of shelterbelt on three quarters of land, which included their home quarter. Many of the rows are five and six rows deep and include caragana, poplar, pine, fir and spruce trees. According to a report by John Kort, a scientist at the agroforestry centre, the value of shelterbelts is seen by looking at their functions. Farmyard shelterbelts protect gardens, buildings, livestock and people. They beautify the yard, improving comfort, and attracting birds and wildlife. They also reduce home heating costs, trap snow away from work areas, buildings or laneways and sequester carbon. Field shelterbelts protect crops, soil and sometimes livestock, while capturing blowing snow. The Buchanans notice their crops are higher, particularly beside the trees and shrubs. “There’s been a couple years, Neil figures we’ve grown a crop pretty much off the snow moisture we trapped from the trees,” Pat says, adding that giving up acres to grow the shelterbelt has paid off with better crops, minimized erosion and more bird species and wildlife. “I guess we’ve just got the sense of accomplishment that we’ve done something to help improve the environment.”

Kort’s report says increased experience with shelterbelts and greater knowledge of their effects, designs and limitations mean that their use is perhaps more targeted than in the past. For example, low shrubs near wetlands provide nesting cover for waterfowl, while multi-row, multispecies upland shelterbelts provide habitat for plants, insects, birds and mammals. Riparian buffers that include trees and shrubs can protect aquatic habitat as well as prevent agricultural nutrients and sediments from degrading water quality, thereby involving watershed management organizations in tree-planting projects. Shelterbelts especially designed for protecting laneways, roads and highways from snow have been planted

by individual landowners, municipalities and provincial highways departments. A fresh look at shelterbelts is underway as a method to sequester carbon to reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Landowners may also be able to sustainably produce


woody biomass as a renewable fuel. Potential economic spin-offs could increase plantings and the uses for shelterbelts. Fewer trees are being planted for field shelterbelts. De Gooijer says with advances in seeding systems, farmers see less utility in trees and have fewer reasons for field shelterbelt use, particularly the row of trees across the centre of a field. Although a drought cycle could trigger another increase in field shelterbelt planting, advances in directseeding technology has led many landowners to conclude that they can manage soil erosion without the use of shelterbelts. Larger field equipment and the increased trend to farm rented land may also contribute to recent decreases in field shelterbelt planting.


De Gooijer cites recent examples in areas of Saskatchewan where rows of historic shelterbelts have been removed. “The Conquest area is an example where you have a farmer come in and buy a large block of land and decide that shelterbelts are not part of their strategy for land management and they remove them,” he says. “I think that just relates to changes in farming systems, bigger equipment, bigger farms.” De Gooijer has seen a rise in trees being planted in farmyard shelterbelts over the past few years. He thinks farmers are fixing up existing shelterbelts around established farmyards. “I’ve also seen new farms and I think that comes with optimism in the agriculture sector,” he says.

START YOUR SPRING TUNE UP IN WINTER An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure | Spend a few minutes now to avoid hours of frustration when spring arrives BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU


» The bent fibreglass handle is

the result of trying to plant a two-inch pine plug into a 12-inch granite rock. The rock may have won the battle, but the spade has been working like this for nearly a decade. It’s doubtful that any wood handle would have survived the encounter.

e typically don’t place as much value on our lawn and garden hand tools as our power tools. Take a quick inventory of the hand tools hanging on the garage wall and multiply that number by, say, $40 or $50. All of a sudden, you’re looking at a dollar figure that probably equals the price of a new mower. A quick trip to your local co-op for a rake, spade and a branch snipper easily totals $200 if you buy the good quality stuff. If you buy the bottom end tools, you’ll be buying them again next year. Buy the best you can afford every time you buy. Longevity is a bigger factor than initial price. Unfortunately, many big box outlets only stock the cheapest Pacific rim products. So keeping those tools working as many years as possible is a good reason to spend a little time each year to winterize the tools you already have. Here’s the other good reason. Spring comes, you’re chomping at the bit to get out there to work off some of that pent up energy, do some digging or planting and snap — the shovel handle breaks first time in the ground, right where it enters the tapered steel cone. It kind of dampens your enthusiasm and wastes your time. Had you taken some time last fall or during the winter to clean, inspect, sharpen and lubricate your hand tools, you likely would have noticed the handle was loose or had visible cracks at the base running upward. That would tell you it’s about ready to break. We’ve all been led to think

in our throwaway world that we just trash broken tools and go buy new ones we can trash again in two years’ time. I can’t bring myself to buy into that buy-andbuy-again theory. I may spend more time than most people working on my rakes and shovels, but if the workshop is warm, it’s a nice way to spend an evening or two. I still have a number of shovels and hoes I began using 55 years ago in what I thought at the time was a forced labour camp — home. Keeping tools working comes dow n to maintenance. All the magazines and websites seem to agree on the following basic procedures for winterizing

lawn and garden hand tools. There’s nothing really new here. It’s all stuff Dad started teaching me in about 1956. Keep ’em clean Caked on mud and dirt provide a nice environment for surface rust to get a start. I no longer think you have to go the whole nine yards with hot soapy water, but a garden hose and scraper do a fine job of removing dirt. Make sure you get everything off. Rust grows underneath residual soil, especially clay. Inspect Before you go any further, make sure the working end of the tool is good enough for another full season. I figure that as long as the

steel is good, the tool has more serviceable life in it. Fix it. This is the time to inspect for flaws in the steel. There’s nothing wrong with going to the welder w ith a couple of hand implements that need cracks patched up. If you see weak spots or flex spots developing, this is the time t o re i n f o rc e them. I have a 5 0 -p l u s y e a r old grain shovel that’s been patched a couple times, but it’s still good for shoveling light top soil. I spent a couple years ordering 3/4 inch crush limestone to p u t o n t h e w a l k i n g p at h s through my acreage. Once that layer was finished, I started ordering 1/4 inch crush for the topcoat. Over a period of six or seven years, I shovelled, wheelbarrowed and raked about 40 yards each summer. It taught me a lot about shovels, wheelbarrows and especially rakes. You cannot find a rake anywhere in North America that can stand up to 10 yards of crushed limestone. So instead of buying new rakes, I started reinforcing all the broken ones with plain old R-bar. They aren’t pretty, but it’s better than continuously buying new tools. Synthetic handles don’t pose much of a problem, but many tools are still sold with wood handles. Most garages still have a majority of wood handles. Inspect the base of these handles for bad wood or a loose fit into the metal cone. A loose fitting handle breaks easier than a tight one because the handle is able to jerk back and forth within the cone. Replace bad handles and

tighten loose fitting handles. According to experienced gardeners who have kept their tools for many years, it’s difficult to remove the stem of a broken handle.” Well, it is and it isn’t. If you’re in a hurry and you’ve got a good vice and drill, you can mess around and usually get it all out within five minutes. If you don’t believe in violence, place the working end of the tool in a bucket of water deep enough so the broken handle is submerged for 24 hours to make the wood swell up. Then take it out and let it dry completely. When the wood shrinks, it releases itself from the steel cone and pops right out. When installing a new handle, make sure it fits tightly before the final installation. Do whatever carving, shaving or shimming are needed to give it a good snug fit. A perfect fit will give any handle a longer life. Then, before the final installation, there are things you can do to extend the life of that handle. Many sources suggest giving the handle a coating of linseed oil. That is a good idea that I take one step further. Once I have the fit I want, I soak the bottom end of the wood handle for a day or two in linseed oil or wood preserver. I give the liquid plenty of time for osmosis to draw it up into the handle. After it hangs to dry for a day or two, I give the whole handle a coat of marine varnish or one of the synthetic clear coats that ends with “thane.” Fibreglass and other compound handles are generally stronger than wood, last much longer and don’t require linseed or other treatments. They always get my vote, if I can find them. They are not universally available to retro-fit all lawn and garden hand tools. Remember, they still require a good snug fit to avoid snapping at the tool cone. Sharpen Most people know they should sharpen cutting tools such as hedge and branch clippers and snippers. But they continue to struggle with dull cutting tools because they won’t take the time, or don’t know how, to sharpen cutting blades. Here’s another thing to consider. Many peo p l e have nev e r e v e n thought about sharpening the cutting edge on a shovel, spade or hoe. Digging into undisturbed soil or hedge roots with a dull-edged spade takes a lot more energy and creates more sore muscles than a sharp spade. Even digging into fresh topsoil or crushed stone that’s been dumped on the yard is easier with a sharp edge. Do yourself a favour. Sharpen all your cutting edge blades. Sharpening the relatively flat surfaces on shovels and hoes is easier than sharpening curved blades on clippers and snippers. Go ahead and use the bench grinder if you have a strong, steady hand, but be aware that a long-handled tool hand-held against a 3,500 r.p.m.

stone poses hazards to both yourself and the tool. Securing the working end of the tool in a vice and using a diegrinder or angle grinder is a safer method. The vice is also the best way to sharpen with a file. Whichever method you use, the process is the same. Study the factory angle of the cutting edge. Your passes with the file or power grinder should match the original edge. When you are finished, the angle of the shiny new metal should be the same as the old cutting angle. Using a power grinder always

builds up slight metal ridges or burrs on the backside of the tool. Although they disappear the first time the shovel is used, brush them away with a wire brush wheel to make the edge perfectly sharp. Double blades on clippers, snippers and shears are a little more complicated than shovels. Websites say that unless you are an artist with the die-grinder, stick with hand held files on these tools. Because these tools cut live tree limbs, they are highly susceptible to having the pivot gum up with tree sap. This can be cleaned out with

solvent or linseed oil when the tools are taken apart for sharpening. There are two types of pruning clippers. The anvil type has a single blade that’s sharp on both sides and hits squarely against the other arm, which is a blunt anvil. The bypass type has two arms, each with one sharp edge like scissors. When the two blades slice past each other, they cut the branch that’s caught in the middle. For ease of sharpening, it’s best to take the cutters apart and lock the blades in a vice one at a time. Using a medium-fine file, try to duplicate the

factory angle as you expose shiny new steel. Don’t succumb to the common tendency of taking off too much material near the cutting edge. Before re-assembly, file any burrs off the backsides. Straight blade pruning shears resemble a large pair of scissors and are intended only for grass, small branches and twigs. When used for jobs heavier than pruning, tough branches get caught between the blades that are prone to twisting. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

CONSIDER TAKING A SAFETY Safety occasionally overlooked | Driving an ATV requires skill, attention BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Often, shears that don’t cut properly only need to be taken apart to have the blades pounded flat again. If the blades are dull, sharpen them with a medium-fine file as you would clippers or snippers. I know people who have been sharpening their own tools for decades and still can’t get a fine edge. If you happen to fall into that category, don’t be embarrassed. Take the tools to a pro or ask someone in the family. It’ll make your life so much easier.


Lubricate There are a variety of opinions on how to lubricate lawn and garden tools. Remember, they are being lubricated to prevent rust, not eliminate friction. Some of the old theories are the worst, among them axle grease. I still see people using axle grease to preserve tools, good crankshafts, trigger mechanisms on old guns and an assortment of other misuses. Grease dries with age. As it dries, it develops cracks right down to the surface you think you are saving. That crack is a natural passage for moist air. It’s one of those things you just shouldn’t do. There’s another old theory that still seems to work today. I grew up with diesel fuel. We cleaned parts with diesel fuel and stored everything from rifles to shovels with diesel. (I’m not certain, but I think we put diesel on our oatmeal.) When it came time to use the tool next spring, it still smelled like diesel, still felt like diesel oil on the steel and there was no rust. My concern now is that modern diesel fuel is a much more complex mix than it was decades ago. The new chemistry may not be compatible with what we need today to protect tools out in the open atmosphere. It may be detrimental. That’s the same concern I have with people recommending motor oil to lubricate tools in storage. The high tech chemistry of modern motor oil has nothing to do with preserving steel in an outdoor environment. There’s one other widely recommended treatment I once used profusely. WD40 is mentioned in many magazines and websites as a lubricant for storing tools. Only a few sites say what I found

through experience. WD40 is more of a solvent than a lubricant. Plus, as a solvent, it’s in the high price category compared to other solvents and cleaners. It’s good for loosening rusty bolts, but not as good as a proper rust penetrating oil. It’s good for cleaning parts, but the solvent in my parts tank costs way less. A few years ago, after my annual fall tool clean-up extravaganza, all the tools got one final squirt of WD40 after they were hung inside on the garage wall. Next spring, maybe I was paying more attention than usual, but I noticed that nearly all the shovels and rakes and hoes had surface rust. That’s when I started doing a little research. The consensus among lubricant guys is that WD40 is too light to serve as a protecting agent. It runs off and it evaporates. Their opinion seems to match my experience. Although there are dozens of products on the market to protect your tools from corrosion, I’ve found any brand of silicon or Teflon does the job just fine. I still use a lot of WD40, but not as much as before and no longer as a lubricant. Remember that it’s best to do all this maintenance now rather than waiting until spring when you really need those tools and they disappoint you. This story is dedicated to the memory of my dad, Gerhard Lyseng.

ll terrain vehicles have become as common in farmyards as half-ton trucks and tractors. It’s so easy to jump on the seat and take off over a field to check on livestock or a watering system, or to haul supplies. It’s also fun. But their increased use for both w o rk a n d p l ay c o m e s w i t h a reminder to drive ATVs properly and safely. According to the Canadian Agricultural Injury Surveillance Program, machine rollovers are the leading cause of death on Canadian farms and ranches. Between 1990 and 2004, rollovers killed 351 people. Twenty-five of those deaths involved off-road vehicles and in one-third of the cases the operator was under the age of 16. Newscasts throughout the country carry other stories of recreational riding that has resulted in tragic consequences. Driving an ATV requires skill, attention, strength and good judgment. Young children usually don’t have those attributes, particularly when it comes to larger ATVs, and most organizations recommend children under age 12 not use ATVs at all. The Canadian Pediatric Society says children under age 14 should not use them, while some organizations say children aged 12 to 16 can drive smaller vehicles with motors no more than 90 cubic centimetres as long as an adult is supervising. Glen Blahey, provincial farm safety co-ordinator in Manitoba, said it is important that everyone who is going to be driving an ATV knows how it operates. His office offers courses for farmers and ranchers, including practical sessions, on ATV driving. “It shouldn’t be a learn-as-yougo process.” He said most farmers and ranchers purchase ATVs with work in mind, not recreation. “ATVs are primarily an extension of the farm equipment,” he said. They are seen as extra transportation and a replacement for the horse when checking cattle. Taking a few hours to learn how to properly drive an ATV or making sure that farm workers know how to operate it is key. “We need farm families to be a little more conscious of stopping and assessing the needs of who is going to be doing the work,” Blahey said. “You have to make sure the person has those skills.” He said statistics show that new operators or new workers on farms are at greater risk of being injured because they don’t have a thorough understanding of how an ATV turns, for example. Under Manitoba law, workers must be properly trained if they are required to drive an ATV for their jobs. David Burnett, chief instructor

for ATV safety courses in Saskatchewan, said most of the participants in his courses are people who need certification for their jobs. For example, every energy industry worker needs to take the course. “Half of the course is actual riding,” Burnett explained. “Turns, starting and stopping, going up and downhill.” By the end of the course he notices quite a difference in the ability of the drivers to handle the machines. He said few farmers take the course, and that concerns him. “They don’t bother wearing the safety equipment either,” he said. Saskatchewan legislation states that helmets are not mandatory when the ATV is operated on property owned by immediate family. But Burnett said that shouldn’t preclude common sense. And he also notes that the first time a rider crosses a road, he or she is on public property. The All Terrain Vehicles Act and its regulations prescribe the type of approved helmets and eye protection that all riders or passengers must wear. Owners and operators might also be surprised to know they must carry a minimum of $200,000 in liability insurance. “Very few have insurance,” Bur-


nett said. “A few more are starting to wear helmets. “These laws are not new.” Legislation sets out other parameters, including a maximum speed of 80 km/h and prohibiting driving on the traveled portion of a highway. Burnett said the Saskatchewan law says that to drive in ditches or on crown land, the operator must have a valid driver’s licence. Children under age 16 who have taken the AT V course, however, can legally operate the machines by themselves. Manitoba’s Off-Road Vehicles Act restricts children under age 14 from operating ATVs unless an adult or parent is supervising. AT Vs must be registered and insured, unless they are going to be used only on land owned or leased by the vehicle owner. Helmets are required in Manitoba, except when the ATV is being used for farming, hunting, fishing or trapping. Passengers are not permitted, except when the ATV has a seat designed for a passenger. The vehicles typically aren’t allowed on highways and other roadways, but there are exceptions. In Alberta, for example, ATVs can be on the highway as long as the operator has a licence. Alberta’s regulations state that the minimum age for operating an ATV is 14. Younger children can drive them on public property if they are being supervised. There is no age restriction on private property. Helmets are not mandatory in Alberta unless municipal bylaws require them. However, legislators do recommend their use.

1980s because of their tendency to roll over and cause serious accidents. However, there are still some of these models in use, particularly by children on farms. Farmers are urged to replace these models with safer, four-wheeled ATVs. Burnett said he also sees children operating ATVs that are much too large for them. Passengers can also be a problem. According to the ATV Safety Manual for Agricultural Workers issued in Manitoba, the driver must be able to move freely on the ATV in order to control it. A passenger interferes with that ability. “A passenger raises the ATV centre of gravity to a dangerous level,” says the manual. This happens because a passenger

FRUIT GROWERS BRANCH OUT TO NEW VARIETIES Finding the apple of your eye | New apples last longer in the fridge, cherries are more prolific, apricots get prettier BY KAREN BRIERE

Dwarf sour cherries


Move over crab apples, chokecherries and saskatoons. There are new fruit trees in town and they’re taking over yard space. Traditional fruits remain popular but plant breeders have been working to develop others that appeal to the prairie palate and climate. Dean and Sylvia Kreutzer are at the forefront of some of this work. Their Over the Hill Orchards near Lumsden, Sask., is based on prairie sour cherries and they are branching out into other fruits. Dean Kreutzer, a city boy and computer programmer who knew nothing about fruit production before the couple began their venture in 2000, works closely with researchers from the University of Saskatchewan to breed new varieties of fruits. Although he approaches fruit production from a commercial point of view, he has tips for those considering different fruit trees and shrubs for their yards.

Prairie-developed cherries are a well-established orchard crop now. Kreutzer said people who want to produce them in their own yards don’t need a green thumb. The trees require little maintenance, grow just more than two metres high and the different varieties available now make fruit available throughout the season. “There is a difference in when they ripen,” Kreutzer said. “You could have two trees, one that ripens at the beginning of August and the other in mid-August.” Prairie cherries are typically tart and good for processing but some varieties are suitable to eat fresh. They are prolific. “You can get 50, 60, 70 pounds of fruit off one bush,” he said. Whatever variety you choose, Kreutzer recommends not picking the fruit too soon. The longer the fruit hangs on the tree, the sweeter it becomes. “You need one month after the cherries turn colour,” he advised. The birds won’t wait to eat, howev-

er, so bird netting around the tree can protect the crop. That’s easy enough to do with one or two trees. The Kreutzers have 3,500 trees, and 11 certified organic growers also have large orchards to supply Over the Hill. Kreutzer said one of his growers lost about 2,000 pounds of fruit to robins and starlings. “You have to be prepared to face the fact you’re going to lose some,” he said. Apples “Everybody should have an apple tree,” Kreutzer said. By that he means everyone should plant a prairie variety of apple tree. “Our apples are world-class. There is no reason to buy apples from the store.” Apples have come a long way through plant breeding. The U of S has been breeding apples for about 90 years and is currently testing 40 selections with the help of 50 growers. Newer varieties such as Prairie Sensation will last five to six months in a refrigerator crisper, Kreutzer said.

And they can be purchased on dwarf root stock, meaning a ladder won’t be required to pick the fruit. Two to four trees w ill supply enough apples for a family. More information on the varieties developed at U of S can be found at Apricots Yes, apricots can grow on the Prairies. “Apricots are really hardy,” Kreutzer said. “They just bloom so early.” Blossoms usually appear by May 1, making them subject to late frost. Kreutzer said getting fruit once every four or five years makes them unreliable in terms of a steady supply. However, there are other advantages to having an apricot tree in the yard. The blossoms produce an amazing fragrance and beautiful foliage that can be bright red, yellow and orange. For now, apricots are still best planted for cosmetic reasons. “Fruit is a bonus,” he said, unless one plans to run outside at midnight and cover the trees to protect them

from frost. However, Kreutzer is involved in breeding better apricots. “That’s kind of my dream fruit,” he said. He has about 200 trees in the ground and they include varieties from around the world. He collects the pollen and uses it to pollinate Canadian plants. “You plant the seed and hope the genetic roulette mixes it up good,” Kreutzer said. Apricots grown in Pakistan bloom later so that might be a good genetic cross, he said. The breeding program is worth it, he added, because Canadian apricots taste “ridiculously good” compared to others. Even California producers agree. On a tour here, they told Kreutzer his apricots were the best they had ever tasted. That’s likely because California apricots are bred for size and quality but not necessarily for taste. “Ours are small but good-tasting,” he said. access=subscriber section=news,none,none






Grapes “Grapes are one of the ones I’m most excited about” from a commercial perspective, said Kreutzer. People have grown grapes in their yards for years but more breeding is underway by private growers and the university to improve all aspects of the vine and allow commercial production. For the average rural resident, planting grapevines on the south side of a house to take advantage of the sun and giving them a bit of TLC should result in berries for grape juice and jelly, said Kreutzer. “This is a simple plant because you only need one,” he said. “They are self-fertile and you only need one to give you the berries.” Cut the grapevine back in fall and it will climb back up a support trellis or structure the next spring. Research at the U of S is looking at hybrid crosses using prairie varieties and good quality wine and table grapes. “Personally, I’d like more seedless grapes for eating,” said Kreutzer. Haskap Haskap breeding has been going on for several years across the Prairies. The oval-shaped blue fruit is tasty, but consistency and quality remain goals of breeders. From a processing point of view, the fruit is fragile and not suitable for mechanical harvesting. But growers who want just a couple of shrubs should see success. “Haskap is hardy as nails,” Kreutzer said. “There’s not much that can hurt it.” The plant does need a pollinator; more than one shrub is needed for fruit production. Some older yards may contain haskap, or blue honeysuckle, shrubs that came from Russia in early plantings. The fruit on those trees is probably best left for the birds. However, the new crosses from Russian, Japanese and wild Canadian stock are flavourful. Another advantage to haskap is early ripening. The earliest varieties can ripen ahead of strawberries, while others fruit later in summer.


Companions wanted

Plants like company | Companion plants can drive away pests, attract pollinators



t’s well known, at least among astrologists, that people with the zodiac sign of Leo are a perfect match for a Sagittarius. Scientists and skeptics may doubt that an open-minded Leo and an adventurous Sagittarius are really a match made in the heavens, but most people accept the notion that successful couples usually have compatible character traits. But what about plants? Are there species of plants that are meant to be with other plants? Or is that a horticultural myth? It’s no myth and not astrology. Gardeners have known for many years that certain plants are meant to be together, said Janet Wallace, who lives in New Horton, N.B., next to the Bay of Fundy, and has been gardening for 15 years. “I’ve been using companion planting ever since I started gardening. I keep refining and adapting it,” said Wallace, who is also editor of Canadian Organic Grower, a quarterly magazine published in Ottawa. In basic terms, companion plant-

ing is the practice of growing two or more plants in close proximity so the characteristics of one plant can aid the growth and development of the other plant. In her garden, where she grows vegetables, dry beans, flax seed, culinary and medicinal herbs and edible flowers, Wallace uses companion planting for a number of reasons, including pest control, soil improvement, pollination and to create micro-climates. For instance, Wallace plants carrots and onions side by side for pest control. “I plant onions in with my carrots to reduce carrot rust fly infestation,” she said. “Apparently, the rust fly is confused by the smell of the onions. When I thin or pick carrots, I always break the top of an onion so the smell overwhelms the smell of the carrot foliage…. I also use marigolds and garlic as companions.” Tina Baynes Fraser, who teaches organic farming at Camosun College in Victoria, said companion

plants provide three basic functions when it comes to insects — they deter, attract or confuse bugs. As examples, Fraser wrote in EcoFarm & Garden that slugs and wireworms are deterred by the pungent smell of marigolds. Lavender and zinnias attract butterflies that pollinate. As well, feverfew, a member of the sunflower family, has a strong scent that masks the smell of other plants from pests. Another way to manage pests and beneficial insects, Wallace noted in an article for Canadian Organic Grower, is to create an insectary around the border of the garden. The insectary, a strip of plants surrounding a garden, could contain legumes like alfalfa, vetch and clover. Those legumes provide a habitat for beneficial insects such as ground beetles, which consume garden pests like flea beetles and small caterpillars. Aside from pest control, there are companion plants that enhance the size and flavour of other species, said Fraser, an organic producer who runs Corner Farms on Vancouver Island, north of Victoria. Carrots work well with lettuce, for

Other fruits Peaches are considered a delicate fruit for good reason. “If I ever have a peach in the next 30 years that will survive the winter, I will be pretty happy,” said Kreutzer. “That’s the first step.” In November, he moved indoors 50 peaches he had been growing in pots. Ten of them had already been damaged by a cold night earlier in the month. Hardiness in peaches is more complicated than enduring cold temperatures. The trees are also affected by the freezing and thawing that can occur in regions that get chinooks. At this point, peaches are not an option for prairie planters. Kreutzer’s attempt at growing kiwis from Siberia didn’t do well, but two in a Regina backyard are flourishing, he said. These kiwis are very small, with no fuzz. Anyone considering planting them requires a male and a female plant. They need protection through the winter and seem to do best in indirect sun. Other fruits that people are trying on the Prairies include goji berries, pears and hazelnuts.

COMPANION PLANTING ON U.S. COINS Each year since 2009, the United States Mint has released a $1 coin to honour the contributions of Native Americans to U.S. progress and development. The back of the inaugural coin featured an image of a woman tending to crops because Native Americans provided food for the first colonists from England. More specifically, the woman on the coin is shown tending to the three sisters of Native American agronomy: corn, beans and squash. Native Americans grew the crops together because the sturdy stalks of corn would grow first, creating support for the bean vines. As the beans grew, they would fix nitrogen into the soil, providing nutrients for the other two plants. The squash’s vines, which grow close to the ground, shaded the soil and prevented the ground from drying out.

instance, because tap roots and shallow rooted crops don’t compete for the same nutrients. Another example is the relationship between basil and tomatoes, according to experts at Schriemer’s Greenhouse in Winnipeg. Bees are attracted to pollen in the basil flowers. In turn, the bees fly up to the tomato flowers and pollinate them as well, increasing tomato yield. Some gardeners claim the tomatoes taste better with this combination, possibly because the basil pollen adds flavour to the tomatoes. Most growers are familiar with the nitrogen fixing property of legumes, but there are plants that accumulate other needed nutrients for their neighbours and future crops, Fraser noted. Comfrey, a small shrub with roots that can be used to treat skin wounds, can build up the nitrogen, potassium, calcium and manganese in the soil. Most websites that cover companion planting refer to a book by Louise Riotte, a gardener from Oklahoma. Riotte, who died in the 1990s, authored Carrots Love Tomatoes: Secrets of Companion Planting for Successful Gardening. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

All things bright and beautiful Attract the birds and the bees to your garden | Placement, design and monitoring ensure a thriving green space BY DARLENE POLACHIC FREELANCE WRITER


he snow may be blowing outside, but it’s never too early to think about gardening. In fact, this is the perfect time to plan what you might plant to encourage birds, butterflies and good bugs to make their home in your yard. Birds Most of the birds that come to your yard are looking for food or a safe place to nest. Think about planting trees and shrubs that produce fruit or berries and hold their fruit over winter. What could be more pleasant on a frigid day than watching a crowd of Bohemian waxwings sweep in to clean off the frozen berries of a mountain ash or the shrivelled fruit of a crabapple tree? Hardy fruit-bearing varieties include mock orange, cherry, currant, pincherry, raspberry, elder, saskatoon, chokecherry, buffaloberry, highbush cranberry, crabapple, mountain ash and Russian olive. To provide a steady food supply, plant trees and shrubs that overlap each other in terms of flowering, fruiting and seed production. Birds tend to be attracted visually.

Hummingbirds zero in on certain shades of orange and red and find tubular, trumpet and bell-shaped flowers attractive. So if you would like to have hummingbirds in the yard, plant flowers such as hollyhocks, monarda (beebalm), petunias, daylilies or Asiatic lilies, liatris (Blazing Star), coral bells or salvia. Seed-producing flowers that birds enjoy include liatris, penstemon (beardtongue), sunflowers, petunias, salvias and zinnias. Native plants have traditionally provided nourishment and shelter for birds and can be cultivated in the farm garden. However, be sure to grow the plants from seed or buy them as nursery stock. Never take them from the wild unless their habitat is threatened or destroyed. As well, transplanting from the wild is rarely successful. Avoid commercial wildflower mixes. They nearly always contain seeds from plants that are not native to the area and either won’t grow or will become invasive. Decide which birds you want to attract to your yard and put out feeders with the seed they can’t resist. Sunflower seeds, especially the black oilseed or striped varieties, are the best all-purpose feed for birds. Black oilseed sunflowers are

favoured by small birds such as chickadees and goldfinches, while evening grosbeaks prefer the striped variety. Never put salted sunflower seeds in feeders. Niger or thistle seed is popular with native songbirds such as redpolls and finches, while millet mixes attract many species, especially house sparrows. Suet or beef fat provides a high energy food source for winter birds. Attach it to tree trunks or offer it in mesh bags. Peanut butter is also a high energy food source, but mix the peanut butter with cornmeal or wheat germ to ensure the birds don’t choke on it. For a special treat, offer corn cobs and whole sunflower seed heads on the ground or a feeding table. Offering different types of feed in different locations helps eliminate competition at the feeders and ensures that food is available to a wide variety of birds. Larger, more aggressive birds are guaranteed to monopolize a single feeding station. Birds always need a supply of fresh, clean water, so think about installing a birdbath in the yard. It should be relatively shallow, no deeper than eight centimetres, and should gradually slope so birds of different sizes

can drink and bathe comfortably. Birds prefer rough surfaces over smooth surfaces for bathing. Place the birdbath in an open area, off the ground, where birds have a clear view of the surroundings. The bath can be as simple as an upside down garbage can lid filled with water or as elaborate as a small garden pond with a circulating pump. Birds appear to be attracted to the sound of running or dripping water. You can easily magnify that sound by elevating a trickling or dripping water hose over a pie plate. Keep a small patch of garden dirt moist because robins use wet mud to line the bottoms of their nests. A grouping of rocks can provide shelter for birds and areas for basking, particularly if they are positioned on a south-facing exposure. A brush pile also offers shelter from the weather and predators. Use large, thick branches for the foundation and pile smaller branches on top. Evergreen branches give the best protection from wind, rain and snow. Install nest boxes to attract cavity nesting birds such as wrens, tree swallows and flickers. These birds eat insects and will provide natural pest control. Place the nest boxes away from high traffic areas. Purple martin houses

should be located in open areas away from trees and shrubs. Don’t be too meticulous in spring when birds are building nests. Encourage them by scattering small scraps of fabric, feathers, dryer lint, hair, and pieces of string or yarn up to 20 centimetres long around the yard for nesting materials, or offer them in mesh bags. And don’t be in a hurry to cut down dead trees. Snags, or standing dead trees, can provide critical habitat for cavity nesting birds. They also harbour insects that are on the menu for some birds and their babies. Butterflies There is little that brings more joy than seeing a bevy of butterflies flitting about the yard on a warm summer’s day. But how can a person make their garden butterfly friendly? Adult butterflies rely on nectar as their food source, so the first thing to do is plant the right flowers. Butterflies are guided mainly by scent and instinctively gravitate to fragrant flowers and bushes that hint they might be a source of nectar. They also like colour. Purple is their favourite, followed closely by yellow and red. access=subscriber section=news,none,none




What could be more pleasant on a frigid day than watching a crowd of Bohemian waxwings sweep in to clean off the frozen berries of a mountain ash?

A wasp searches for nectar from this tea rose.

This White Admiral or redspotted butterfly rests on a valiant grape leaf. In its caterpillar form, the insect has a hump behind its head and is a greenish yellow colour, presumably to mimic bird droppings and therefore make it unappealing to birds.

Butterflies prefer single-flowering varieties over doubles, probably because the nectar is more concentrated and more easily extracted. Varieties that attract butterflies include perennials such as gaillardias (blanketflower), liatris, rudbeckias (black-eyed susan), echinaceas (coneflower), helianthus or sunflowers, monardas (beebalm), hollyhocks, daylilies and milkweeds (butterfly flower). Annual petunias, asters, sweet williams, marigolds, zinnias and bach-

elor’s buttons are other favourites. Many herbs, spices and vegetables offer an excellent food source for butterflies and their caterpillars when they are allowed to flower. A butterfly garden needs caterpillar plants as well as nectar plants. Butterfly caterpillars feed on leaves and tend to be particular about their diet. Learn what butterfly species are common to your area and plant what their caterpillars prefer. The caterpillars of Monarch but-

terflies look for milkweed as a host plant, while others search out asters and goldenrods. Swallowtails are attracted to Joe Pye weed and buddleias. Rudbeckias, penstemons, hollyhocks, asters, milkweed and marigolds also rate high as larval plants. Create a butterfly garden in a sunny location that receives five to six hours of sun a day but is sheltered from wind. Butterflies require warm temperatures to fly and for the development

of eggs and pupae or chrysalises. They won’t feed in an area where they have to constantly fight the wind to stay on plants. Think about placing a few flat stones in a sunny location where the butterflies can rest and warm up. Black stones are the best because they absorb and hold the sun’s warmth longer. Butterflies will bask on black rocks or exposed soil to elevate their body temperature and enhance mobility.

Some butterflies engage in a feeding method called puddling, in which they extract nutrients from moist soil. To accommodate this practice, keep a patch of soil muddy in the butterfly garden. You can also provide water by filling a bucket with sand and enough water to keep it moist. Another strategy is to place a water-saturated sponge in a shallow dish. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

» CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE You can also offer a dish of rotting fruit to butterflies or fruit-eating birds such as robins. Good insects Insects serve a valuable purpose in gardens. Bees and their kin, for instance, are essential in the plant pollination process. Ninety-eight percent of all bugs are beneficial to the garden. Attracting good insects to the garden will keep down the bad ones. A beneficial insect is one that helps gardeners grow healthy plants. They include bees, ladybugs, predatory wasps and ground beetles. Ladybugs are natural aphid predators, while ground beetles help control soil insects. Predatory wasps feed on cutworms and other softbodied insects. Just as you can attract butterflies by creating a butterfly garden, you can also plant an insectary to invite good insects to your space. An insectary should include plants of varying heights. Low-growing herbs such as thyme and oregano give ground beetles a place to hide. Taller flowers such as daisies and cosmos act as beacons for predator wasps and ladybugs. Plant daisies nearby to ensure roses have ladybugs on duty to deal with aphids that damage leaves and flower buds. Invite hover flies and parasitic wasps with yarrow, dill and fennel. Larger pollinators will fly straight to zinnia and sunflower beacons. Favourite nectar repositories for bees include perennial flowers such as catmint, gaillardia, penstemon, helianthus, columbine, hollyhock and milkweed, and annuals such as petunia, salvia, aster, marigold and bachelor’s button. Be sure to have early bloomers in the insectary to attract beneficial insects to the garden before crops become inundated with pests. Vines such as scarlet runner beans, Dropmore honeysuckle, grape and Virginia creeper are particularly attractive to insects. Insects will gravitate to puddles that the sprinkler leaves behind, but in between waterings you can create a bug watering hole with a saucer and rocks. Be sure to keep it full on dry days. Ground dwelling insects will appreciate the shelter of groundcover.

Ground beetles rarely climb on plants to search for pests to eat. Instead, they patrol the soil at night looking for slugs and cutworms. Garden mulch gives ground beetles and other earth-bound insects a place to burrow during the day. Mulch also keeps the soil moist and prevents beneficial bugs from dehydrating. When you turn over a stepping stone or a board or plank, don’t be in a hurry to destroy the insects you find underneath. They may be your garden’s best friend. On a larger scale Gardeners who are more serious about providing appealing habitat for birds and other wildlife can go a step further: • Create living fences with shrubs and vines that offer food and shelter. • Dense, thorny shrubs provide excellent nesting spots for birds. Evergreens such as spruce, juniper and cedar provide excellent nesting cover as well as winter shelter. The cones are food sources for some songbirds. • Plant shrubs and flowers in clumps to offer better shelter and concentrate food resources for wildlife. • Create understories with your plantings. For example, put shade tolerant shrubs such as dogwood, red elder and highbush cranberry under large trees. Plant flowers and groundcovers that radiate out from the shrubs to further maximize habitat for birds and bugs. • Consider erecting a bat house in your yard. Bats consume vast quantities of mosquitoes and other flying insects. • Don’t make your farmyard completely weed-free. Weeds such as dandelions, thistles, stinging nettle and chickweed are important host plants or food sources for wildlife. • Avoid being overzealous with fall clean-up. Leave plants in flowerbeds and garden over winter to trap snow, increase soil moisture and provide winter food for seed-eating birds. • Remember that mulched leaves make excellent habitat for bugs. With adequate amounts of leaf litter and snow cover for insulation, some insects remain active all winter long and are a valuable food source for birds that migrate early. • Avoid using lots of pesticides in your garden. If you must use herbicides, do so with spot applications.

CANINE CURIOSITY CAN BE COSTLY Face-to-face with porcupines | Quill removal can be done at home, depending on the temperament of the dog

Did you know? Porcupines are nocturnal and spend much of their time in trees. These slow-moving herbivores feed on bark, buds, leaves, fruits, grasses and vegetables, but because their diets are sodium deficient, they are attracted to salt licks and other items with a high salt content, including plywood adhesives and even clothing.


Curious dogs and frightened porcupines don’t mix well. Keep a pair of needle nose pliers handy for emergency quill removal. | BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU


n life, there is a right way and a wrong way to do almost everything and Cheryl Klimack now knows the wrong way to remove porcupine quills from her four-year-old mutt, Dodger. Klimack, like most pet owners, took her dog to the vet the first time he was pierced with porcupine quills. But the second time Dodger wound up with quills she attempted to take them out at home. “I laid on him and covered his eyes,” said Klimack, who lives on an acreage south of Brandon. “But he quickly learned what was coming. And as soon as you did that (lay on him) he just went wild.” While non-professionals do make these kinds of mistakes when they attempt to remove quills, veterinarian Jay Thrush said it’s acceptable for dog owners to deal with the problem on their own. “If you’ve got upwards of a dozen (quills), it’s OK to try to remove those at home,” said Thrush, of the Brandon Hills Veterinary Clinic. Of course, a successful home

removal depends on the animal’s temperament, because some dogs aren’t going to remain tranquil as someone yanks spears out of their muzzles. Since abandoning her “lie on the dog” technique, Klimack had several opportunities to experiment with other methods because porcupines nailed Dodger with quills five times this summer. The trial and error led to her most successful method, where Klimack and members of her family play with Dodger and then deftly pull out a quill when the dog is distracted. Regardless of approach or distraction method, the best tool to remove a quill is a pair of small needle nose pliers, Thrush said. “Grasp the porcupine quill as close as possible to where the tip enters the skin. Basically, right up against the skin,” he said. “Then apply steady pressure and pull it straight back. You don’t want to yank on it.” An alternate technique for difficultto-remove quills, he said, is to use pliers to grasp the end farthest away from the skin. Then roll the quill across the face of the pliers, which torques the quill out of the dog.

There is always the risk that part of a spear will break off and remain in the dog, Thrush said. “There are times when we (vets) try to remove a quill and the tip might break off…. So you’ve got a small piece of quill embedded in the skin.” Such a scenario isn’t a significant risk because like a sliver, the animal’s body will eventually reject the small foreign object and push it out. More concerning are large pieces or whole quills that work their way into the dog. “They’ll start to migrate… sometimes deeper and deeper,” Thrush said. “I’ve seen quills in an abdominal cavity. Sometimes when we’re doing surgery we’ll find quills in there.” Of course, prevention is the best way to avoid quills and the potential health complications. Kelsey Eliasson, who lives near Whitehorse, learned last year that an ounce of prevention is essential when it comes to quills. In the summer of 2010 Eliasson went out for a bike ride at a campground in the Yukon with his two dogs, Milo and Moonunit. During the ride, the two husky-crosses cornered




a porcupine by a tree stump and the curious Milo decided to chomp on the pointy animal. “He bit it and felt the pain. Then he got angry and bit it two or three more times,” Eliasson said. Milo wound up with more than 200 quills in and around his mouth. Eliasson wound up with a $1,000 vet bill. A few months later that summer, on a trip to Alaska, a porcupine punctured a still curious Milo with 30 quills. After that incident, Eliasson decided Milo would be on-leash whenever they ventured into the wilderness. Some dogs have to be leashed because they don’t learn from previous and painful clashes. “Certainly there are dogs out there that have a taste for porcupine and will get quills over and over again,” said Thrush, who has pulled quills out of certain dogs more than 10 times. “One of the big theories is that the dog is on such an adrenaline rush when it attacks the porcupine, that it doesn’t actually feel the pain till afterwards. So they don’t associate the pain (with) actually biting the porcupine.” access=subscriber section=news,none,none




HOME QUARTER SKUNK SPRAY NEUTRALIZER RECIPE Ingredients: • One quart of three percent hydrogen peroxide (fresh bottle) • One quarter cup baking soda • One to two teaspoons of liquid dish soap Mix ingredients in an open container and use immediately. Never mix ingredients in advance and do not attempt to store solution in a closed container because oxygen released from the solution may cause air tight container to explode. The solution can be used on people or pets, but care should be taken to avoid splashing solution in the eyes or the mouth. Apply thoroughly and allow solution to remain in hair for five minutes before rinsing with water. Repeat as needed. Wear old clothing or avoid contact with clothes because fabric may be discoloured.

DID YOU KNOW? Skunks spray their potent mixture from two glands, one on each side of the anus, and can direct their liquid with a surprising degree of accuracy up to a distance of three metres.



f you live on a farm and own a dog, then there’s a good chance you’ve had a close encounter of the striped and stinky kind. For those who have been sprayed by a skunk, the mere sight of the malodorous mammal is often enough to evoke a hasty retreat. But sometimes, head-to-head encounters cannot be avoided. Paul Yanko, an acreage owner from Vanscoy, Sask., recently had such an experience. • Yanko and his wife, Pam, own four dogs. Earlier this year, a ruckus evolved outside their family home. The Yankos discovered that their dogs had squared off with a skunk. Having dealt with similar situations in the past, Yanko located the skunk, killed it and had it tested for rabies at a local vet clinic. One of their dogs, a six-year-old Boxer, sustained an injury in the scuffle and the Yankos were concerned the family pet might be infected with rabies. After tending to the dog’s injury, the couple set to work ridding the dog of its unmistakable stench. “The dog stunk, but I don’t think it took a direct hit,“ said Yanko, who co-ordinates digital content at The Western Producer. “We just washed it down and put it in the bathtub with some kind of


human shampoo that smelled good. “We’ve had dogs sprayed directly … (before) and we used tomato juice.… That, honestly, seemed to work very well.” Although tomato juice has long been touted as an effective and simple remedy, chemists and veterinarians say the tomato juice remedy is an old wives’ tale. People who use tomato juice may think the strategy is working but in fact, they are more likely to be experiencing olfactory fatigue. Those who are exposed to skunk spray for a long period of time become less sensitive to the odour and begin to believe, mistakenly, that the smell is dissipating. Most experts agree that a thorough cleansing with soap and warm water is just as effective as tomato juice … and much less expensive. Skunk spray is difficult to deal with because it is not water soluble. The spray is an oily substance that contains a combination of sulfur-based chemical compounds known as thiols. The chemicals contained in a skunk’s spray are strong enough to debilitate potential predators and can even cause temporary blindness. It’s like bear spray that comes in a furry, four legged container. Paul Krebaum, a chemist from Lisle, Illinois, likens the skunk to a walking chemical factory. “It (skunk spray) is mostly butane and butane thiols and their acetate

esters plus some smaller amounts of nitrogen and other sulfur compounds,” said Krebaum. “It’s designed to have both an immediate and a lasting effect … so that whoever a skunk might encounter remembers the experience for a long time.” According to research, the spray can be detected by the human nose at concentrations as low as 10 parts per billion. Society — or at least those who have encountered a skunk — owes Krebaum a debt of gratitude. A decade or two ago, Krebaum was working in his lab on a project that produced significant quantities of hydrogen sulfide gas. Sometimes known as rotten egg gas, it is a simple thiol compound but its chemical properties are similar to more complex thiols, including those contained in skunk spray. Initially, Krebaum and his colleagues were attempting to expel the hydrogen sulfide gas through the lab’s exhaust hood but neighbours began to complain. If wind conditions were right, the gas would waft through the neighbourhood, sometimes being inhaled by residential air conditioning units. “After a few complaints, we decided we needed a way to get rid of this stuff,” said Krebaum. “So I did a little bit of research on how to oxidize hydrogen sulfide and I came across the possibility of using hydrogen peroxide and alkali. Oxi-

dizing the hydrogen sulfide turns it into harmless, odourless sodium sulfate, which can simply be poured down the drain because it is completely non-toxic.” The solution worked to perfection. Some time later, one of Krebaum’s colleagues mentioned that his cat had been sprayed by a skunk. Remembering his hydrogen sulfide remedy, Krebaum surmised that his recipe, with simple alterations, would have a similar effect on the butane thiols contained in skunk spray. A new, milder formulation was devised and the solution was applied to the cat’s coat. “It worked like magic,” said Krebaum. “There was no smell at all.” Since that episode, Krebaum’s simple, low-cost recipe has been published widely and used throughout the world. The only caveat is that pet owners should use the solution carefully and take extra care to make sure it doesn’t get in the pet’s eyes. Other commercial solutions work on the same principle and can be bought over the counter at many veterinary clinics. But according to Krebaum, the homemade solution is less expensive and can be whipped up quickly at home using three basic ingredients. “It’s pretty much free except for the cost of a bottle of peroxide and a little • bit of baking soda and some soap,” Krebaum said. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

The Salford RTS series are high speed residue management tools that take on cool wet soils in spring to help accelerate soil warming and improve seed to soil contact. The RTS helps to alleviate compaction, and the independently mounted coulters have almost no residue limitations. Salford also offers a full line of tillage tools and precision air seeding equipment. Experience the Salford Difference.



Glenmor introduces the Joker from Horsch Anderson. The Joker tillage system is a versatile and able to handle any type of crop residue in wet, dry, rocky, or extremely saturated soils.

n recent years, the bat has been gaining allies, particularly among acreage owners, farmers, ranchers and environmentalists, says Dave Hobson, wildlife biologist with Alberta Fish and Wildlife. “Certainly over the years, people’s attitudes towards bats have changed,” said Hobson. “In the past, I used to get calls from people saying, ‘I’ve got bats in my house. What kind of poison can I use or how can I kill them?’” “Now, most of the calls I get are, ‘we’ve got bats in our house … but we don’t want to kill them. Can we set up bat houses? How do we get them to move?’” In particular, rural property owners appreciate bats for their finelytuned hunting skills and their voracious appetites. Depending on the species, a single bat can consume up to one half of its body weight in flying insects in a single night. To locate its prey, a bat emits a series of high-pitched sounds that are inaudible to the human ear. The sound waves bounce off the flying insects as well as stationary

objects and serve as a built-in guidance system for bats. “The most obvious benefit is insect control,” said Tara Tamasi, director of wildlife care with the Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation. “They eat tonnes of insects and their (feces) is excellent fertilizer as well.” According to Hobson, there are at least nine bat species residing in the Canadian prairies, the most common being the little brown bat which numbers in the hundreds of thousands. Nine species are known to live in Alberta. Saskatchewan is home to seven or eight species and Manitoba has six. All species that live in the West are small, insect-eating species that are rarely seen during the day. They hunt in the evening or at night and spend the daylight hours hiding out in dark, secluded spots. Canada’s bats are migratory. Some species fly south for the winter to warmer climates in the United States and Mexico. Others spend the winter in Canada but will typically hibernate in caves or rock crevasses. Bats preparing for hibernation will often congregate in mountain-

ous regions of British Columbia, Alberta or the Northwest Territories where temperatures are moderate and caves plentiful. Dark, cool locations with temperatures slightly above freezing and high humidity are ideal for hibernation. In the summer, bats typically prefer locations where food is plentiful, often roosting in rural areas near rivers, lakes, streams, sloughs, potholes and marshy areas where insect populations are high. During the summer, they will roost in trees, chimneys, abandoned buildings and attics. Females prefer warm, dry locations for raising their young. This explains why bats will often take up residence in the attic of a house, if access can be gained. People concerned about bats residing in their chimneys or attics are encouraged to wait until late in the year, preferably October or November, before restricting access. By then, newborns have matured bats and adults have migrated to wintering grounds. To ensure safe relocation and minimize bat mortalities, Tamasi’s organization will assist with bat relocations in Alberta. For information on that service,

call the Alberta Institute of Wildlife Conservation at 403-946-2361. According to Hobson, there is growing recognition that bats serve a useful function that is beneficial not only to the environment but also to the to agriculture and forestry industries. “Worldwide, bats eat a lot of things. There are some that eat fruit, some that eat nectar, some that eat meat and some in South and Central America that drink blood,” he said. “But in Canada, all the bats that we have are insect eaters … and a lot of the food that they eat are moths and beetles (which) can be major agricultural and forestry pests.” Property owners can attract bats by providing suitable roosting sites. Man-made bat houses can be constructed at minimal cost with a few basic materials. For best results, the houses should be attached to poles, trees or buildings and positioned about four to five metres above the ground. Ideally, they should be located in areas that receive ample morning sunshine and shade in the afternoon. Houses with exteriors that are painted flat black will absorb and retain heat more effectively,

increasing chances of occupancy. Typically, bats that roost in manmade bat houses will use them as short-term day roosting sites, although some bat houses may be used as maternal nesting sites. There is little evidence to suggest that bat numbers are declining in Western Canada but according to Hobson, bat species are facing challenges. “At this point in time, the main problems for bats, at least in this part of Canada, are things like wind farms, changing forestry practices and potentially the loss of old buildings that are suitable for roosting,” Hobson said. “But generally, if you put up a bat house … especially if they’re located close to water bodies … and if you get them up high and face them to the south … chances are good that bats will start using them.” Bat houses can be constructed in a variety of sizes but should be made with rough-hewn wood to accommodate climbing. Sides and top should be airtight and the bottom should be partially enclosed with a narrow slot, about three-quarters of an inch wide, for entry. Detailed instructions on constructing a bat house are available on the internet.

Bat droppings can transmit disease


onna Rudd is not about to denounce the bat as public enemy No. 1 based on one negative experience. However, she is encouraging prairie residents to take extra care when dealing with bats and their droppings. Rudd is recovering from a rare disease known as histoplasmosis, which can affect the function of lungs and other internal organs and typically results in fever, loss of energy and chronic respiratory problems. Rudd, who lives near Ponoka, Alta., noticed droppings at the base of her chimney in the basement of her house, but originally assumed they were mouse droppings. When she decided to vacuum the material out of the chimney, she was surprised to find the remains of a dead bat. Within days, she began to exhibit flu-like symptoms. The symptoms worsened and Rudd’s health deteriorated to the point where she required medical attention. “The following week I was really unwell,” she said. “I had a very high fever and chills and I had muscle and bone pain like you wouldn’t believe. I was so dehydrated that I ended up in emergency at two different hospitals within a week.” Doctors had trouble diagnosing Rudd’s condition. Initially, she was treated for pneumonia. Another doctor suggested that her symptoms indicated cancer. The mysterious condition worsened until Rudd spoke with another Alberta woman whose son had contracted histoplasmosis after cleaning bat droppings out of an abandoned building. Rudd put two and two together and surmised that the mysterious ailment was histoplasmosis, which normally affects people in the Ohio Valley and Mississippi Delta regions of the United States. Subsequent tests confirmed her suspicion. A CT scan showed lesions and wartlike nodules on her lungs. Blood samples sent to a lab in the United States also came back positive. Bat droppings recovered from Rudd’s chimney also showed high concentrations of the fungal spores that cause the disease. The experience has not convinced Rudd that bats should be exterminated, only that people should be aware of the risk involved. Within the last year, there have been a number of similar cases reported in central Alberta. Bats can also carry rabies. Rabid bats are rare in Western Canada, but extra caution should be taken if bats come in close contact with humans. Although Rudd’s health problem was the direct result of contact with bat droppings, she said bats will still be welcomed on her farm. “Bats are still OK. They can live outside and they can eat all the mosquitoes that they want,” she said. “But I would encourage people who have bats in their house to clean them out, seal up the house so they can live outside … and protect your children from getting into bat (droppings).”

This year hanging baskets full of black petunias are fashionable. Customers may come to the farm and make their own or Leona Staples will make up the colour pots for them.

acob Quantz left Ontario in the 1880s to homestead in what is now central Alberta. He and his wife, Sophie, named their quarter section The Jungle Farm. The couple had two sons: one was killed in the First World War and the other, Oscar, returned to the farm. Jacob’s great-granddaughter, Leona, and her husband, Blaine Staples, have been farming here since 1996. The farm was recognized for its centenary in 1997. Leona has a degree in home economics and Blaine has a master’s degree in agriculture. The main farm produces oilseeds and cereals, but they also grow 16 to 20 acres of strawberries and a similar amount of vegetables. Leona welcomes more than 2,000 schoolchildren and family groups to the farm during the growing season. “People want to know what is going on at the farm,” she said. “They are fascinated with how their food is grown.” A former district home economist for Alberta Agriculture, she also offers classes on preserving and teaching modern women how to make jam, pickles and sauerkraut. “Extension has been my life. I think it is my calling to share agriculture with kids,” she said. The family also hosts dinners in their red barn, working with neighbouring farmers to create a full menu.


They run a U-pick fruit operation and also grow vegetables for farmers’ markets and local restaurants. They are one of five family farms that comprise Innisfail Growers, which direct sells products at farmers’ markets. The farm is a thriving operation, but like all family operations, it must deal with plenty of hard work, struggles against unwanted insects, worry over late frosts and mid summer hailstorms that can smash away an entire year’s work in minutes. This is their diary.

May 6, 2011 It is 12 C and partly cloudy. The greenhouses are full of tiny seedlings in flats. A germination chamber similar to an incubator to hatch eggs has been started to accelerate germination. Seeds were placed in little peat plugs and go inside the chamber. Two days later tiny seedlings have emerged. The warm environment is housing artichokes, lettuce, cabbages, broccoli, kohlrabi, herbs, celery, tomatoes, onions and flowers.

This year they are also trying melons. The vegetables are at various growth stages from two leaf to full plants. They will be transplanted outside as soon as the danger of frost is gone. Customers were invited to come to the farm in April to make their own flower pots full of colour and variety. These are ready for pickup along with special Mother’s Day arrangements. There are plenty of pansies, lilies and trendy new black petunias that are a deep purple with light variegations of colour. The greenhouse opened to the p public May 6. Four Mexican men and a University of Lethbridge education student are already on hand to start the season. Hanging strawberry baskets that w were started in March are already p producing plump red fruit for the early days of May. Some of the raspberry canes are b being pruned, but the straw mulch could not be removed from the strawb berry fields because it is too wet. The dugout used for irrigation is full to the brim. Drip irrigation is used w when necessary. Spinach planted in the fall is well on its way. Spinach ordinarily planted in A April was delayed a month because of snow in the field. JJune 3 Cool weather continues with a touch of frost at the beginning of June that damaged the strawberry blossoms. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

LEFT: A touch of frost harmed some of the strawberry blossoms in June.

A farmers’ garden diary Blaine has finished seeding the canola and wheat. This was followed by a rush to deliver wheat to the elevators because grain cars are finally available. A wide variety of cucumbers, squash, pumpkins, musk melon and watermelons called Sugar Babies have been planted in the greenhouse. These will be transferred outdoors later. Onions, celery and spinach are outdoors, covered with perforated plastic tunnels to keep them safe from the elements, but some of the lettuce suffered frost damage. Staff raked the mulch off the strawberries by hand in mid-May because it was too wet to remove by machine. However, the mulch did its job and protected the plants on eight acres from winter kills. Some other fields were damaged over the winter. Bell peppers adapted to the prairie climate are ready to go outside soon. The farm is working with the University of Saskatchewan to try new peppers called Redskin and Socrates to see how they produce outdoors in central Alberta. On June 3, 10 dozen nine ounce jars of strawberry jam were made to sell at the Calgary Farmers’ Market. These should be enough for two weekends’ worth of sales. Plenty of aphids were discovered on the bedding plants and flower arrangements in the greenhouse, so ladybugs have been released to stay ahead of the problem.

July 19 The temperature on July 18 was 29 C. Humidity is 80 percent so the garden is growing well. The area was surrounded by thunderstorms and the following day hail pounded down in the late afternoon. The damage is still being assessed. The first strawberries are ready for harvest July 18. Day neutral varieties work best in this growing region. The workers are pulling out the strawberry runners to make plants grow big. Watermelons are still under plastic. The foliage looks like oak leaves. The celery is a foot tall and the artichokes are almost ready. Pickling size cucumbers are ready and the zucchini and squash are blooming. Chefs are requesting zucchini with the blossom on for a gourmet treat. The leeks and Walla onions are ready for picking. The cereals and canola are growing well. The entire countryside is yellow with blooming canola. Aug. 15 Three-quarters of a centimetre of rain fell Aug. 14 and the days are cooler than normal, so some crops are slow to mature. The spaghetti squash is about the size of a cantaloupe and the watermelon is the size of a table tennis ball. The U of S field peppers project has produced green peppers about the size of tennis balls. They are sweet

and tasty. Pepper plants are also offered in the greenhouse in containers. Some are starting to turn red. Artichokes are ready for the restaurant trade. The chefs prefer tiny ones. About 800 pounds of cucumbers were picked over the weekend. Plants such as cucumbers and zucchini bounced back well after a midJuly hailstorm, although some still show damage. Strawberries finished Aug. 13 and raspberries are resplendent. Strawberry clippings have been gathered and are rooting well. These were to be seeded this fall for early emergence next spring. Garden mums are almost ready. These are started from clippings and will produce fall flowers of red, bronze and yellow. Tillage radishes have been seeded in a former rye field. They are planted four weeks before frost and leave a long root that leaves a long narrow hole. This will be a new strawberry patch next year. Summer has been cool. The melons would have been more successful with more heat. The sweet corn was damaged in the July hail storm and has not recovered by Aug. 15. Leona is not sure there will be much production. Sept 17 Temperature is 14 C. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

LEFT TO RIGHT: Cabbages grown by Shelley Bradshaw were ready for sale in mid-September. Different varieties were offered and some were better for cabbage rolls and others were suited for coleslaw. Aphids invaded the artichokes and the ladybugs arrived for a feast. Sunflowers provide a splash of colour to the farm. Leona Staples makes candy apples for visiting school groups. Goosebumps and Knucklehead pumpkins are picked in mid-October. There was a touch of frost the night before so fall strawberries are covered with special fabric to save them. They try to control the effects of weather with blankets and raised beds. The ground is warm in the fall, even if the nights are cold, so plants can continue growing. Still, the upper canopy of squash, pumpkins and watermelon are showing frost damage so the fruit needs to be picked. “This is the wettest summer I have ever seen. There are times I couldn’t get into the field with the tractor,” said Blaine. Harvest is far off. The canola was cut but the cereals are not ripe, even though some September days were 30 C. There were plenty of aphids this summer. Ladybugs were released for the greenhouse, but the proliferation of aphids in the field encouraged the little red insects to appear on their own in the artichoke patch. Fall planted spinach is already up and will be ready for the first spring picking in 2012. Oct. 18 Combining was finished Oct. 17. There was some regrowth in the barley, so Blaine is worried about his malt prospects. Acorn squash has been picked just before the last big frost. It is a popular item because many customers like to make it into baby food. They also grow Hubbard squash for soups and stews. The storage onions are being packaged. The Walla Walla onions store well only until October. Some new varieties are sweeter than Walla Walla, so they may be considered another year. The pumpkins are ready for Halloween. Traditional type pumpkins are offered, but they also grow varieties called Goosebumps and Knuckleheads, which are covered with bumps. These were once considered mutants before an interested grower started selecting them. They are now growing in popularity because of their unusual look. Blaine has started new strawberries for next spring’s planting. These are a day neutral type that keep over winter at a cool, steady temperature so they can produce fruit in June. The strawberry fields will be covered w ith wheat straw in midNovember after they have gone into dormancy. Dec. 2-4 Merry Christmas at the on-farm market.

Terrific tomatoes to tempt the taste buds Zesty Cobra or subtle Tumbling Tom? | Tomato grower holds taste tests to help gardeners choose just the right flavour BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU


IQUELON LAKE, Alta. — A good tomato is like a good wine. A bite into a ripe tomato can release a mild sensation or a zing at the back of the tongue as it rolls around the mouth. Ester Walker, who runs Glen View Greenhouse and Organic Farm, wanted her customers to taste the subtle differences found among the 83 varieties of tomato. Earlier this year Walker held a tomato-tasting event at her greenhouse. However, her customers couldn’t reach a consensus on which variety was best. “There was no hands-up winner,” she said. “Tomatoes have different functions. Some are good for salads, some for sandwiches or canning. I don’t know anyone who grows just one tomato.… You can love the big tomato flavour or the low acid of others.” Walker grows tomatoes in her greenhouse until November. “I like the big tomato taste with the bite back here,” said Walker, pointing to the back of her mouth.

Ester Walker of Glen View Greenhouse and Organic Farm shows off tomatoes on the vine in her Alberta greenhouse. At first bite, the Tumbling Tom Red sent a burst of flavour in Kathi Nagy’s mouth, who declared it her favourite. Next was the Tumbling Tom Yellow, with a softer, more mild flavour. “Who would have thought there were so many different tomatoes,” said Nagy, a self-confessed tomato lover whose grandmother used to serve tomatoes sprinkled with sugar as dessert. Yellow, orange, red and purple tomatoes grew in Walker’s greenhouse. There were tomatoes with

thick skins and new varieties with thin skins. There were colourful varieties with little flavour that are designed to look good in salads. There were varieties only for canning. There were varieties designed to produce fruit early in Canada’s cold climate. After tasting more than a dozen tomatoes, Nagy returned to the Tumbling Tom Red to see if it was still love at first bite or if the other tomatoes had nudged it out of first place. A second taste left her unsure. It’s taste seemed mild and with no bite after the zing of the Vilna and Cobra. Walker said tomatoes are a versatile plant. New varieties are designed for increasingly popular backyard g re e n h o u s e s w h i l e o t h e r s a re designed for patio pots. “The cost of seed is not prohibitive.” It’s important to Walker to keep those unique flavours and tomatoes. While not a purist, most of her tomatoes are considered heritage varieties. They are tomatoes that have a historical interest, are open pollinated, can be regrown from their own seed and are at least 50 years old. “I like the idea I can save the diversity,” she said. This year’s discovery of late blight in Alberta makes it even more imporaccess=subscriber section=news,none,none

tant to protect the genetic diversity of tomatoes, she added. Late blight is a deadly disease of potatoes and tomatoes. Walker has found several seed houses since starting her greenhouse more than 10 years ago that sell heritage tomato seeds and other heritage vegetables.

“There are lots of cool things that are heirlooms, not just tomatoes,” she said. She grows dozens of shapes, colours and sizes of peppers in her greenhouse, and does so until the heat is turned off in November. “I just love gardening. I like to know where my food comes from.”

Shock chlorinating rural water wells must be done regularly to ensure quality drinking water. | STORIES BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU


ASHAW, Alta. — When Dave Fox moved to a farm just outside Stettler, he had two old existing water wells capped and a new well drilled. If the new water well was going to be his main source of drinking water, Fox wanted to know more about the well and how to maintain it. “I want to get a better understanding of the working of the well and hopefully save money down the road,” said Fox during a Working Well workshop hosted by the County of Stettler and Camrose County. “I have the information about the well, but I want a better understanding of it.” Each year 3,700 new domestic water wells are drilled in Alberta, with the majority in the heavily popu l a t e d a re a s a ro u n d C a l g a r y , Edmonton and the Highway 2 corridor connecting Alberta’s two main cities. Ken Williamson, a former Alberta Agriculture water specialist and now a water consultant, said only half the people he talks to have seen their well driller’s report, the mandatory report filed with the province detailing everything about the well.

It is your responsibility to take care of your well and ensure you have a safe and secure drinking supply. JENNIFER MACPHERSON ALBERTA ENVIRONMENT

The Water Well Drilling Report is an important resource for homeowners wanting a better understanding of their water well. About 20 percent, or 60,000 Albertans, rely on the 500,000 domestic water wells in the province. Across Canada, 30 percent of the population uses groundwater for domestic purposes. During the day-long workshop, Williamson had each homeowner take the information from their own water well report and draw it on a specially designed page to help each person visualize the construction of their water well. The participants drew in the depth of the borehole, the type of screen used at the bottom of the well, the depth of the surface casing, the type


of soil surrounding the well, the static water level and what was used to seal the well from contaminants. Rick Hicks, of Bittern Lake, Alta., drew a diagram from his water well report and caught an error on the report of his newly drilled well. “Something in it doesn’t make sense,” said Hicks, of the bentonite chips placed around the bore to seal the well from impurities. Hicks learned the chips weren’t at the right depth during the workshop. “I wanted to learn about water wells. I just moved from Calgary and this was a good opportunity to learn something. Nobody else is going to look after it for me.” Jennifer Macpherson with Alberta Environment said unlike water in towns and cities, where staff are hired to ensure the water is safe, in the country no one is checking the wells. “It is your responsibility to take care of your well and ensure you have a safe and secure drinking supply,” Macpherson told the group at the workshop. “Proper maintenance ensures the well stays good for as long as it can.” The average household uses 200 to 250 gallons of water each day. Knowing how quickly the well recharges will help maintain the quality of water and longevity of the well.

One of the biggest problems with wells is over-pumping, or pumping water out faster than it can flow into the well. “Don’t over-pump your well,” said Macpherson several times throughout the day. Local water well driller Cliff Buelow of Cliff ’s Drilling said the biggest problem he sees is people leaving the cap off the well and allowing mice and insects to fall in. Buelow said he likes it when owners are around and asking questions while he’s drilling a well. For Buelow, it’s a good opportunity to explain how the well works and increase the likelihood of better well maintenance. The other problem Buelow sees is wells located at the low spot in the yard where water, manure and other contaminants can run in. He also discourages homeowners from disguising their wells with flowerpots or decorative items that attract insects. Margaret Purdy of Scenic Sands, a summer village near Bashaw, Alta., said she came to the workshop to find out more about the well at her new retirement home. “This is just proactive to know what to look for and be aware of.”

20 percent








1. Old, abandoned wells There are hundreds of thousands of old abandoned wells around the province waiting to give rural landowners’ grief, said water specialist Ken Williamson. “Old wells create plumes of contamination.” One driller pulled old equipment and a layer of dead mice out of an old well before it was capped. 2. Well pits and wells in basements The culvert-like wells act as a funnel for contamination. Williamson said he has seen dead mice, skunks, bags of old insulation and electrical wires in the wells. Well pits should be eliminated. In basement wells, install a sanitary well seal

and have an emergency sump pump in the basement. 3. Inadequate annular seal Any space between the well casing and the borehole will allow surface contamination to drain into the aquifer. Williamson said these problems are hard to solve and most often a new well needs to be drilled. 4. Inadequate well cap Williamson has seen gunny sacks, bleach bottles and grocery bags used as well caps. Without a tight-fitting well cap, well owners are encouraging contamination. He also recommends a vermin-proof cap, now required on new wells in B.C. and Ontario to prevent insects and vermin from entering the well.

5. Poor siting and landscaping Williamson has seen the top of the well below ground, wells in the middle of manure-filled corrals and next to fuel tanks. It’s important to consider the best location for a well.

8. Poor maintenance practices Be careful not to contaminate the well during regular maintenance. Components need to be disinfected before they go back into the well. It should be chlorinated after every service.

6. Poor septic systems Leaky and inadequate septic systems are often a source of contamination. Properly designed septic systems on the farm are important.

9. Lack of backflow prevention There is the possibility of contamination when filling a sprayer tank or horse trough with a hose from a frostfree hydrant. Williamson recommends never installing a hydrant on top of the well.

7. Hazardous material storage Pump houses should only contain water-pumping equipment. They should not double as storage areas for chemicals, old paint cans or garbage.

10. Poor manure management and groundwater fed dugouts Landowners need to adopt best management practices to prevent manure from contaminating water bodies. Source: Ken Williamson


Shock chlorinate well regularly Alberta Agriculture water specialist Brandon Leask has a mantra: “When in doubt, shock chlorinate.”


hile shock chlorinating water wells may not solve all water problems, it cures many, Leask told landowners at a water well workshop. A build up of slime inside the toilet tank, staining of bathroom fixtures and laundry, bad smells and tastes are often a sign of sulphate-reducing bacteria that can cause permanent damage to well equipment. Pouring the mixture of chlorine and water into the well and following the proper protocol is an easy step to maintaining safe water, said Leask. “To be effective, it has to be done regularly.” • Store enough water for eight to 48 hours of farm and family use. • Bypass water treatment equipment. • Prepare mixture of chlorine and water in large water tank. • Siphon chlorine solution into well using clean garden hose. • Open all hydrants, faucets and run until you can smell chlorine at each outlet. • Shut off taps and don’t use water for 8 to 48 hours. • Open an outside tap and run outside faucet until chlorine smell disappears. Do not run on sensitive plants or landscaping. • Run hot and cold taps inside the house to flush the hot water tank and distribution system.

The humble wheelbarrow always there to help Design has changed little | With a few modifications, your wheelbarrow could be ready to handle the toughest jobs BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU


» My old steel wheeler (top) is

barely one step removed from Fred Flintstone’s wheelbarrow. The steel is probably as hard on your back as Fred’s original rock wheel, but the hub (above) is better than anything found on modern wheelbarrows.

heelbarrows haven’t changed much since the days of Fred Flintstone and the first ancients who invented the wheel. When you think about it, until you get to the point in history when you can add an engine, there’s not much room for improvement. It’s a wheel with a flat platform and a couple of sticks for handles. If we discount the Flintstone theory, the first known wheelbarrows date back to ancient Greece in about 400 BC. My own introduction to wheelbarrows came at about age seven when Dad decided I should earn my weekly allowance helping him install drain tile around the footings of our eightfoot deep basement. The tools were three types of shovels and one evil wheelbarrow, which I started out hating intensely. It eventually became a challenge to see how much Red River clay I could carry without tipping. Then a little speed entered the picture and it almost became fun — almost. Fifteen years later I bought my first house and my first wheelbarrow. Six houses later, I now have four different types of wheelbarrows, including the antique. And I’m contemplating buying one other style of wheelbarrow with more tires. In recent years, I’ve wheelbarrowed and raked out as many as 70 yards per summer of crushed limestone plus another 20 of topsoil. I have to confess, I am a wheelbarrow aficionado. Steel wheeled hauler My steel wheeled hauler dates back to the 1930s, according to the old fellow who gave it to me. We still use it occasionally for light duty, such as hauling straw when the other three are busy. But that steel wheel is a noisy nuisance, and it’s rough riding on hands, arms and shoulders. At some point, the original narrow steel wheel was widened so it wouldn’t sink into the ground. It appears a blacksmith performed this modification because the two steel straps welded to the circumference of original 1.5 inch wide wheel form a perfect circle. No creases of bending bumps. The wheel is now six inches wide. I packed the wheel bearings first thing when I got the old bucket. The hub and bearings are hefty enough they could have been from a car of that era. Packing wheelbarrow bearings may seem like an odd thing to do, but the better quality units do have an axle and bearings like those found on the front of a bicycle or motorcycle. Dirt and grit get in there and can wreck the bearings. It’s no big task taking them apart to clean and grease. The next step down in quality would be the hubs with a grease zerk. A little squirt every fall before the wheelbarrow goes into storage keeps the grease fresh and pliable. The lowest quality wheelbarrows have sealed bearings, which will

TOP: This three wheeler is my best wheelbarrow to date, but it is high and tippy and requires some sort of X-brace from the top of the high cross handle down to the bottom of the bucket. ABOVE, LEFT: The dualwheeled barrow doesn’t lighten the load, but it eliminates wobbles, a tremendous benefit if you have a bad back. ABOVE RIGHT: The pneumatic rubber tire on this model helped cushion shock, but it didn’t lighten the load. | RON LYSENG PHOTOS need to be replaced once sand and grit work their way past the seal. Big Blue Bomber barrow My single tire conventional wheelbarrow is just that, a basic wheelbarrow much like the ancient Greeks had, only with a rubber tire. I don’t like it much because it’s so wobbly that it’s hard on my back, especially when it’s full with a heavy

sloshy load such as concrete. However, it’s my wife Judy’s favourite. She won’t even use the other wheelbarrows in my collection. That single tire is the one big advantage over the dual or triple tired barrows. It steers better and gets into tight spots a lot easier. Big Blue is old enough to have greaseable bearings that I service every time I install a new tire, about once every four or five years. In con-

trast, I have yet to replace a tire on the dually hauler, even though it does far more work than the single. Dually barrow The dual tired unit is just about the only wheelbarrow you see on construction sites anymore. Directional stability is great, so you don’t have to concentrate too much on steering. And that factor, of course,

HOME QUARTER becomes the one big drawback. The old conventional wheelbarrow pivots on that single tire to turn. The dually forces you to walk sideways to the right if you want to turn left and walk sideways to the left if you want to turn right. It can be a problem when hauling concrete into tight spots. Stability is the dually’s big advantage. The two tires are about a foot apart, so wobbling is eliminated, which is good news for the lower back. Because it is so stable, you can carry a bigger load without worrying about tipping. These are generally the highest quality wheelbarrows you can find, and the only ones that come fitted with good tires. Three wheeler If two tires are better than one, then three tires must be better than two. And it’s true. The three-wheeler is the ultimate wheelbarrow, in my opinion. It totally eliminates the balancing act when moving heavy stuff around the yard. You can push a full load with one hand because you no longer have to lift the unit as you go. It uses one normal sized tire at the front, in the normal location, and two smaller tires at the back where the resting stands once touched the ground. The handles are in the normal position, but a new raised horizontal cross handle allows you to walk upright as you push the wheelbarrow. Upright is the position in which we’re designed to walk. While the high handle is essential to this high tech unit, it is also the Achilles heel that pulled these wonderful machines from the market within a month of their introduction. Canadian Tire promoted them on television for a brief time about 10 years ago. Being a wheelbarrow kind of guy, I rushed over to my nearest store, only to find a large pile of brand new broken three-wheeled wheelbarrows on the floor in the garden centre. It didn’t take much to see that the high cross handles had all broken off where they attach to the two conventional handles. Some had broken off because the technicians assembling them in the automotive side of the store used an impact wrench to tighten the bolts going through the normal handles into the base of the high handle. The Pacific Rim steel stripped. Others appeared slightly scuffed, so they may have carried a load or two before the high cross handle broke. Either way, bad engineering and overall poor quality created an unusable product. The engineering flaw was simply the lack of forward braces from the high cross handle. Without these braces, any forward pushing pressure on the handle causes it to snap off, even with a light load. It seems nobody had thought about that. So we sorted through the pile and found enough adequate parts that I could cobble together to make a three-wheeler at home. The department manager was glad to get rid of some the junk and sold it to me for $30 if I promised not to bring it back. In retrospect, I should have offered her $100 for the whole pile. When I got home, the only real modification was the addition of an X-brace running from the top of the cross handle forward down to the bucket. Now, when I push hard on the handle, all force is applied to the bottom of the bucket. Problem solved, and I’m able to push around heaping heavy loads of

crushed limestone. The overall quality of the thing is bad, but it’s hung together for 10 years. The original tires lasted one year. I replaced them with the highest quality tires I could find and have had no problems since. Wheelbarrow tires cost from less than $10 to more than $30. It’s well worth the extra money to buy the best. They can last a decade or longer. The drawback to the three-wheeler is it sits so high with those extra tires at the back. I’ve raised the axle and thus lowered the ride height at the back, but you still need to be careful on side slopes. Steering while running in a straight line takes a little getting used to, but it’s manageable. Turning in tight spots is the same as a conventional single tire unit. Simply lift the conventional handles and it becomes a normal wheelbarrow again. If it’s a really heavy load and you


don’t feel like lifting, I’ve found you can steer pretty well by pushing down on the handles to take weight off the front tire. I’ve only seen these factory built three-wheelers on the market that one time. It wouldn’t be difficult to modify a conventional single-wheeler into a three-wheeler. But before you start buying tires and axles, consider the Tri Will Burrow Retrofit Kit from Wesley Enterprises in Missouri. For $60, you get the rear axle, rear tires and a high hoop handle that slides over your existing handles. Looking at the photo, instinct tells me the hoop handle is a good way to break wooden handles and bend steel handles. I’d be tempted to install some sort of forward brace so the force transfers directly down to the bucket or frame. For information on the kit, contact

garden enthusiast in the city can run next door or a few doors down to borrow a tool, pick up seeds and cuttings or have a coffee and get advice. But on farms and remote rural areas, the nearest neighbour who actively gardens might be 20 kilometres away, and so a lot of borrowing never happens, a lot of advice is never received and a lot of frustration occurs. How eve r, the d igit a l age has brought an entire planet of neighbours into the home of every rural family that has internet access. Some gardeners say it eliminates the feeling of isolation that once enveloped rural gardeners. Official gardening sources and individual gardeners’ blogs get information flowing fast and well. “I find the Saskatchewan GardenLine website is helpful in advising on some diseases and pests,” said Lisa Friesen, an avid gardener in the northern, forested community of La Ronge, Sask. “Otherwise, posting on the blog about a disease or pest often results in a helpful response from a reader with more knowledge.” Friesen’s blog, Northern Exposure G ardening at zoneonegarden. contains photographs, thoughts, questions and advice from her garden and is typical of well-done gardeners’ blogs. They can be a great resource for gardeners looking for ideas, information, answers or a community of likeminded people scattered across Canada and the world. Friesen said posting a question on the blog has brought results. “An example was rust affecting the Honeywood saskatoon berries, with an expert informing me of the disease’s natural cycle, with a connection to affected junipers,” said Friesen. Many universities offer online gardening advice, with their knowledge based on solid science and academic expertise. A quick Google search for information brought up gardening advice from Washington State University, UBC Botanical Garden, the University of Maine and many Canadian universities. The University of Saskatchewan’s telephone-based GardenLine has provided help identifying diseases and bugs, Friesen said. Older forms of media are also helpful to the relatively isolated rural gardener. “Canadian garden magazines and Saskatchewan radio broadcasts on gardening are also helpful,” said Friesen. But at the end of the day, the best resource is probably still neighbours. “Up here in La Ronge, there are a smaller number of people that do garden,” said Friesen. “Quite a few of those are quite access=subscriber section=news,none,none

fanatical about gardening, taking special measures to avoid frosts and lengthen the season. We do have a nice little network of people that share seeds, discuss new offerings in seed catalogues and share plant divisions.”

Lots of this, none of that: the scoop on composting Waste not, want not | Adding compost to the soil reduces the need for fertilizer and improves water retention BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM


f anyone can appreciate the value of backyard composting it’s a farmer, says an expert in the field. “It’s amazing how much richer it can make the soil that you use in your garden or what it can do for your lawn,” said Natasha Page, waste reduction specialist with Alberta Environment and Water. Starting and maintaining a com-

post bin or pile is easy. The first step is finding a well-drained and sunny area that is close to the house. “In the winter time you’re not going to trudge to the back 40 to dump out your compost bucket from the kitchen,” she said. Once a location is selected, the pile can be started by creating a base of coarse material, such as twigs, to assist with drainage and aeration. Then it’s a matter of layering the pile with brown material followed by green material and then a shovelful

of garden soil. Brown material such as dry leaves, straw or coffee filters are good sources of carbon. Green material such as food waste, tea leaves and bags or fresh lawn clippings are good sources of nitrogen. The microbes that do all the work in a compost pile need both. Some household waste to avoid includes meat, bone scraps and oil, all of which can attract animals and prevent the microbes from doing their thing.

“If you put in a piece of bread that has a touch of margarine on it that is certainly forgivable but you don’t want to pour your bacon grease into the compost pile. That would be a problem,” said Page. Any food waste should be dug down into the pile to avoid attracting animals. Keeping the pile moist also prevents critters from setting up shop. Page learned that lesson the hard way. The lid on her bin kept the rain off of her compost pile and encouraccess=subscriber section=news,none,none

aged mice to take up residence. They were sent scurrying one day when she thoroughly watered the pile. “The bin can make it too dry. It was just a perfect little home for them,” she said. “Ever since then I’ve been so diligent. I have never had a problem again.” It is important to ensure the pile is not too wet and not too dry. It needs to be as moist as a wrung-out sponge. Compost piles require very little maintenance. Page turns her pile over once every two weeks in the summer and not at all during the winter months. It takes about one year to convert a bin full of organic matter into onequarter to one-half of a bin of usable compost. A pile should be about one cubic metre in volume. Organic waste can be placed in a bin or simply heaped on the ground and covered with a plastic sheet to control the moisture. Page said it’s best to have two piles, so one can be degrading while the other is stacked with fresh organic matter. There is a pretty straightforward detection method for knowing when the compost is ready to be applied on the lawn or garden. “It should be brown. It should look like dark, rich soil. And it smells fantastic. It smells like rich earth,” she said. Another test is to fill a plastic bag with compost, squeeze out all the air and seal it. If the bag has expanded after 24 hours that is a good indication that the microbes are still working and it should not be used. Unfinished compost can take nitrogen from the soil, compromising plant growth in a garden. Proper composting offers a number of environmental benefits including decreasing the greenhouse gases associated with landfills, reducing the need for fertilizer and creating soil with better water-holding capacity. Alberta Environment and Water has created a backyard composting brochure that can be found online at http://environment.alberta. ca/02985.html.

COMPOSTING WITH WORMS Those who have difficulty maintaining an outdoor compost pile can compost organic waste with red worms. • Vermicomposting creates a fine black granular compost called castings, which provides an excellent source of slow-release soil nutrients for plants or lawn. • Red worms eat almost everything that humans eat. They should be fed at least every few days. Food scraps placed below the surface of the bedding decompose in about two weeks. • Every three to six months, the red worms will have converted the food wastes and their bedding into a mass of rich dark castings. 11/11 - BCS11026

• Worms do not survive in their own waste and must have it removed.





DON’T POUR OIL ON TROUBLED WATERS Incentives to recycle | Many municipalities have collection sites for oil, filters and containers STORIES BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU


Did you know? Oil filters are 85 percent steel.


he days of dumping used oil on the driveway to keep dust down are gone, or they should be. Phil Wrubleski, executive director of the Saskatchewan Association for Resource Recovery Corp., said farmers have come a long way in their thinking about what to do with used oil. The corporation was formed about 15 years ago, at the same time as Alberta’s Used Oil Management Association, and has since expanded to include organizations in Manitoba, British Columbia and Quebec. New Brunswick expects to begin a similar program in 2012. It grew from the Western Canadian Used Oil/Container/Filter Task Force. Wrubleski said farmers’ attitudes have changed since SARRC first began going to trade shows in the 1990s to promote the program. Many had bad habits of oiling their roads or using used oil to burn garbage. “Some people even used it for oiling the shingles on their garage, or just plain dumping it,” he said. Farmers are now more aware of the environmental impacts of doing those types of things. They may even have to have an environmental audit done of their land or operation in order to sell it. “You don’t want any of that nasty stuff around,” said Wrubleski. Collection rates are now about 75 percent for used oil and 80 percent for filters. Both of these materials are

considered hazardous. Collection of oil containers, defined as those up to 50 litre capacity, is about 68 percent. The containers are not hazardous waste but always contain some oil and for that reason can’t be put into plastic recycling programs. Farmers reuse many of these containers, especially the 20-litre pails that are handy for toting and storing things, but Wrubleski said they should be aware that once the pails crack or lose a handle they can and should be returned for recycling. The numbers are better in Alberta: 83 percent of oil, 91 percent of filters and 85 percent of containers are returned. In Manitoba, however, the numbers are lower: 75 percent of oil, 69 percent of filters and 49 percent of containers are collected. There are several ways for farmers and rural residents to recycle oil and the associated products. SARRC has 35 Ecocentres authorized to accept the products. “They’re the ones that actually have a pump in them so you can pump off 205-litre drums that farmers bring in,” Wrubleski said. Municipalities, retailers or bulk stations, for example, also collect the material in return for an incentive paid by SARRC. Many of the bulk dealers also accept the larger 110and 205-litre drums that the incentive program does not. In total, there are about 300 collection facilities in the province, although not all of them accept all three materials. Or, residents can call collectors to access=subscriber section=news,none,none

come to their farms if they have larger quantities. Several farmers could get together to recycle materials to make it economical for a collector to come out. Wrubleski said one farmer who has a larger tank could offer to collect for his neighbours and act as the base of operations.

Alberta has more than 400 collection centres. Manitoba has 53 Ecocentres, plus 16 other licensed rural depots and 10 in Winnipeg. All of the facilities can be found through the provincial links at www.

THE LIFE OF AN OIL CONTAINER You’ve taken your used oil, filters and containers to the collection depot, so now what happens to them? All these products are recycled into something that could end up back on your farm. Used oil can be recycled several times. Processors remove the impurities and turn the oil into heating fuel, re-refine it into base oil or create products used in other industries such as drilling mud manufacturing. Phil Wrubleski, from the Saskatchewan Association for Resource Recovery Corp.,

said filters are 85 percent steel. “Filters are run through large densifiers to squeeze out the oil,” he said. “The large bulk of them go to Evraz in Regina and they mix them into their recipe used largely for the large pipe they make.” Plastic oil containers are shredded and washed to remove the oil residue and used in various types of non-food grade products. “They could be oil containers, flower pots or irrigation pipe,” Wrubleski said.

ust because it’s poop and it’s free doesn’t mean it’s good for the garden. That’s the bottom line from a host of gardening sources on the issue of fresh manure. Fresh manure can be dangerous for plants and human health, and poop from various species of animals can be radically different in nutrient content and their effects on growing plants. Gardening experts say gardeners need to realize that manure should be composted rather than directly applied. As well, the nutritional nature of manure needs to be understood and human health considerations must be foremost in vegetable gardeners’ minds. “If you use fresh manure in the garden, there is a small risk that pathogens which cause disease may contaminate garden vegetables,” according to Washington State University’s Co-operative Extension Service. Diseases include listeria, salmonella and E. coli and parasites include roundworms and tapeworms. Meat-eating animals, such as dogs, also contain parasites that are particularly dangerous. Experts say their feces should be completely avoided. The same rule applies to pig manure, says the University of Maine, because it contains parasites that are particularly likely to infect people.


Not all manure is created equal. Know what type you need and how to prepare it before it hits your garden

This might not be a problem on most commercial hog farms because producers pay a lot of attention to biosafety and restricting the flow of disease through fecal matter. However, even a farmyard pig can host these parasites and pass them on in their poop. Vegetables that directly touch fresh manure are obviously most at risk for transferring disease to people. “The risk is greatest for root crops, like radishes and carrots, and leafy vegetables, such as lettuce, where the edible part touches the soil,” says WSU. “Careful washing and/or peeling will remove most of the pathogens responsible for the disease. Thorough cooking is even more effective.” The most effective method of preparing and sanitizing fresh manure is to compost it, which isn’t much more complex than piling it up and mixing it frequently to allow natural processes to heat and break down the materials in the raw feces. The finished product is easy to apply and much safer than fresh manure. However, regardless of whether manure is composted or applied fresh, different farm animal species have radically different types of manure. Cattle manure is the most balanced and least agronomically dangerous to flowers and vegetables. Its low nitrogen levels mean it won’t easily burn plants. Horse manure is higher in nitrogen and isn’t best for flower gardens and some vegetables.

“It is lower in the fruiting and rooting nutrients, phosphorus and potassium, which is why we always warn people to not use horse manure on flowering plants,” says the Gardens Alive website. “Use it on non-flowering, nitrogenloving plants like lawns, corn, potatoes, garlic and lettuce, but not on tomatoes, peppers, flowers and such.” Many gardening sources say sheep manure is an excellent resource, but it is usually difficult to gather because sheep live in pastures rather than being confined. Poultry manure is super-high in nitrogen and must be handled delicately when applied to avoid burning plants’ roots. Poultry manure is best used as a supplement to other types of manure, or gingerly. Exotic manure is also sometimes valuable, if it can be found. It could be worth a gardener’s time to get in the pickup with a pitchfork — a big pitchfork — when the circus comes to town. “Elephant manure is highly prized by gardeners, both for its quality and quantity,” say a popular United Kingdom-based online encyclopedia, h2g2. However, composting elephant poop is also a good idea. “Warning: elephant pies are the size of a football, composed mostly of undigested roughage and take forever to break down,” says Gardens Alive. “I recommend helping things along with a machete and/or baseball bat. But once it is finally done, the resulting compost keeps the deer miles away.”

» It’s a design system of permanent

Permaculture concept | Couple makes the most of the land while protecting the environment for future generations

agriculture that aims to create sustainable habitats by following nature’s patterns.

» Bill Mollison, one of the found-

ers of the permaculture method, defines it as “a philosophy of working with rather than against nature, of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless labour and of looking at plants and animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single project system.”

Jason Baranec and Julia Mitchell examine the fruits of their garden labours on their acreage north of Lethbridge, near Park Lake, Alta. The couple employ efforts to create a sustainable growing system that embraces natural concepts and acknowledges humans’ role in producing their own food. STORY & PHOTOS BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU


lush, green front lawn is a waste of potential. That’s how Julia Mitchell and Jason Baranec see it. The rural Lethbridge couple has embraced permaculture, which works with nature to create sustainable habitat and grow food. For these self-described “permies,” the front lawn is a common example of how people have separated themselves from food production, often to the detriment of health, the environment and natural food production systems. “We bash the front lawn quite a bit, in more of a joking way, but it sort of represents all that’s wrong with current society,” said Mitchell. “We joke that the front lawn is kind of useless. It does look good and there are values to it … but we sort of view that as, instead of using your front lawn to just be front lawn and look the

same or more green than your neighbours’, we see it as an opportunity for growing your own food.” They took several courses in permaculture concepts and have put their beliefs into practice. Though they both work day jobs in Lethbridge, they’ve employed key concepts of the philosophy on their acreage near Park Lake: recycling, self-sufficiency, frugality, following nature’s lead in food production, learning from others and making food easily accessible. Their accomplishments are many: • They built a greenhouse that has recycled patio stones for a floor, uses rain barrels and runoff from the house for watering and has a passive solar exposure near the house. • They planted a vegetable garden using companion planting and keyhole patterns to minimize water use and simplify access to produce. • They compost yard and garden waste for reuse as fertilizer. • They maintain a flock of 35 chick-

ens for eggs and meat. • They built an outdoor clay oven using recycled brick, soil and straw from their own property. And they consider it a beginning. “The reason why I was so intrigued by (permaculture) is the local food growth aspect of it,” said Mitchell, originally from Toronto. “We both really think it’s important that people need to start considering where they get their food from, how it arrives to them, what’s in it. The general food industry has sort of spiraled out of control in terms of its environmental footprint.” Baranec, who grew up on a farm near Bentley, Alta., and is the project manager at the University of Lethbridge, said he is often asked to define permaculture. “I think a good elevator speech that we stumbled upon is, if the rain barrel or the solar panel or the garden were all tools, permaculture would be the toolbox that organizes it,” he said. He sees many farming applications

within permaculture concepts, among them rotational grazing, holistic animal management, cover cropping, mulching and erosion prevention. The couple teaches permaculture workshops, and this summer they organized a blitz that transformed an urban yard into a food producing patch of land. The community aspects of permaculture, as well as its informality, are major appeals for them. “It’s an organic structure,” Baranec said. “It’s a network of people trying to improve on one another’s ideas.” Mitchell likens it to open-source software, free to all who want to learn about producing their own food and are willing to experiment. Two Australians, Bill Mollison and David Holmgren, founded the permaculture design system in the early 1970s. Permaculture groups have since formed in several countries, including Canada, which has its own permaculture institute in Ontario. “It’s a pretty easy sell when people

DAVID HOLMGREN’S 12 DESIGN PRINCIPLES 1. Observe and interact: Take time to engage with nature, so we can design solutions to suit our situation. 2. Catch and store energy: Develop systems to collect resources at peak abundance, then use them in times of need.

5. Use and value renewable resources and services: Make the best use of nature’s abundance to reduce our consumptive behaviour and dependence on non-renewable resources.

3. Obtain a yield: Ensure you get useful rewards for the work you do.

6. Produce no waste: Value and use the resources that are available to us so that nothing goes to waste.

4. Apply self-regulation and accept feedback: Discourage inappropriate activity to ensure systems continue to function well.

7. Design from patterns to details: Step back and observe patterns in nature and society. These can form the backbone of our designs, with

the details filled in as we go. 8. Integrate rather than segregate: By putting the right things in the right place, relationships develop between those things and they work together to support each other. 9. Use small and slow solutions: Small and slow systems are easier to maintain than big ones, making better use of local resources and producing more sustainable outcomes. 10. Use and value diversity: Diversity reduces vulnerability to a variety of

threats and takes advantage of the unique nature of the environment. 11. Use edges and value the marginal: The interface between things is where the most interesting events take place. These are often the most valuable, diverse and productive elements in the system. 12. Creatively use and respond to change: We can have a positive impact by carefully observing and then intervening at the right time.




FAR LEFT: Baranec and Mitchell built this clay oven using soil from around their home. They say it makes good pizza. LEFT: Mitchell shows the composting system she uses to process all organic waste on her acreage north of Lethbridge. Recycling and using what’s available are key concepts of permaculture.

start describing to you how you can design your systems for as little work as possible and as much output, which is always a big deal to everyone, especially to farmers,” Baranec said. Beyond that, Mitchell said it’s a way of looking at living life and creating a culture that will protect the Earth for future generations. Permaculture is a derivative of permanent agriculture but also permanent culture. “That permanence also implies making the world better for future generations, so ensuring that in your great life you … ensure that your kids and their kids and their kids’ kids are going to have the same benefits that you did and better.” And what about that front lawn? Will it look as pretty if it becomes a garden or a compost pile? It depends on your definition of pretty. “I think a productive resource can be just as aesthetically pleasing as a non-productive resource,” said Baranec, as Mitchell nodded agreement.
