This convection will also help avoid frost damage early in the season. For this reason, a market garden should never be located at the bottom of a slope, hill, or valley where it would feel the effects of frost much earlier than if it were situated on the upper half a slope. Drainage In Quebec’s northern climate, the snowmelt and abundance of spring rainfall inevitably means excess water in the garden that must be dealt with. Poor soil drainage can be a major problem for optimum plant growth, but even more so, it can very often prevent access to the garden when pressing work needs to be done.

Choosing between a natural and artificial windbreak is not a mutually exclusive decision. On a newly established garden located on a windy site, it might be a good idea to implement both routes, side by side, at least temporarily, to get the best of both worlds. Irrigation An irrigation system is an absolute necessity for growing crops on a commercial scale. Unpredictable rainfall, rigid seeding schedules, and the need for precise crop calculations all make access to steady and abundant water essential for a successful market garden.

As much as this sounds good, however, we still need to intervene mechanically to prepare seedbeds for crop planting and establishment. Finding the appropriate equipment and techniques to do so efficiently, without damaging the soil structure and the living organisms within it, has been a challenge for many years.
