I have bocking 4 and bocking 14 roots and I am located at Mississauga Ontario. It's not the best time of the year to ship root cuttings but it will work if the roots are big. I sent 10 roots of bocking 4 to someone just 2 weeks ago and there is no problem at all. PM me if you are interested.

Thanks guys for the answers. I googled and found out they are all edible. I have a lot of them in my backyard:)

Both plants have milk and the first is a little bitter like dandelion.

I found two plants in my backyard and am wondering if they are edible.

Anyone know their names?

Thanks,

I can ship root cuttings to certain countries, but it has to be early spring. I have both bocking 4 and 14. PM me early next year.

I have a To-Be-Permaculture farm at Dundalk but I am living in Mississauga. In my opinion, Dundalk might be better for your needs given the following reasons.

1. It is the highest in Ontario and has multiple head waters for 3 major rivers in Ontario. My property is head water of Grand River with wet land and the water is clean.
2. It has public library and farmer's market on each Friday. There are grocery stores but I don't shop there so I don't know if food is healthy or not.
3. It is cooler in summer days for any outdoor activities and the air quality is better.
4. So many properties around the town and I am sure you can find the ideal place for your garden.

Let me know if you need more info about Dundalk.

Thanks,

I sowed 4 acres this spring with only 2 or 3 hours per week because I have a full-time job. Broadcasting is the only option for me for annuals. For bigger seeds like beans/pumpin/watermelon/sunflower/pea, I try my best to cover them with a layer of soil using a hoe. This is my first year of doing it and so far so good in term of germination. I am not planning to thin any seedlings for I don't have time. Here is my observations:

1. For best result, broadcast before rain with soaked seeds.
2. If no rain in the next couple of days, don't soak the seeds.
3. Remove mulch before seeding and mulch back when seedlings are bigger enough.
4. Using a hand-held broadcaster is better.
5. Germination rate is higher in wet spot.

I am trying to find out what plants are good for self-seeding so that I don't need to do it myself. Majority of my time is on trees and shrubs this year.

I found the following link while doing research. How do you guys think about it? I have 94 acres in Ontario and about 15 acres wet land with permanent water. I am thinking about what I can do with the land and I am open for all ideas.
