This sounds like exactly the kind of book I need. We are in greenhouse planning stages. I live in Northern BC; we get really long daylight hours in summer, and very short in winter. I live "near" the coast, so the temperatures are moderated, but still can occasionally get down to -30 C in winter, and it is often overcast. I love the idea of keeping my chickens in a greenhouse in the winter-- their coop is in a forested area and we have to keep a light on to get any eggs in the winter. Considering my situation, do you think a greenhouse would even be a viable option for winter greens and electricity free eggs? I don't know anybody around here who keep greens through winter, other gardeners have said they would have to use lighting, which would be much too expensive.

I want to cut down an ugly old overgrown cypress hedge and create a hugel bed for acid loving berry bushes-- my question is, do I have to uproot the bushes, or could I just chop them down and build up over the stumps? They have been around for a long long time and would be horribly difficult to dig up. And no, I can't put pigs on it-- it's in the front yard and we are not allowed to keep pigs in my municipality (it's the only animal that is specifically prohibited, no idea why).

Thanks, and I hope this question hasn't been asked before, but with 3 children under 5 I don't have time to search through every post-- maybe there's a better way, but I haven't found it.
