    I think I am going to plant some spinach this weekend not because I expect it grow, just because I am sick of winter

    Looks like my set up. I start the seeds in small plastic tubs. After they have developed true leaves I gently move them into individual pods. If they are kinda spindly I just bury them deeper. Works real well with tomatoes.

    I need to get some tomatoes and peppers going, this weather and lack of room for more plants has been holding me back a bit... Maybe this weekend!

    Ive got 9 or so plants, unfortunately they need to be kept in containers due to our basic soil. They do ok but might be more work than they are worth for most people. Honeyberry/haskap are similar but do well in our soil so you could look into those also.

    Have a few just waking up but been too cool in the basement where I grow transplants. I hate to heat the whole basement for a few bucks worth of seedlings.

    Blueberries can be grown in ND. You just need to do ONE thing. Keep the soil PH at 5-6. Unfortunately, soils here are Alkaline and blueberries need acidic soil. So you have to make them acidic. I have 18 plants growing just fine. First, buy the right plants......Low bush. Most from the UN.of Minn.
    all of these will grow here......I have 6 of these.
    North Country, Northblue, Chippewa, Polaris, and St. Cloud. I also have Northland from Michigan St. and Patriot from Maine.

    I use only rain water on them. Using two 50 gal rain barrels under 2 of my downspouts. Rainwater has a PH of neutral 7. Using a 2-gallon watering can I add a little Ammonium Sulfate and Miracle Grow for acid loving plants. Blueberries like a PH of about 5-5.5. To measure it.....you need to buy a roll of PH tape off the internet.

    If you have to use house water or it still isn't acidic enough.....I add battery acid. 3-4 drops in 2 gal of water will bring it down to 5. But again.....check with PH paper.

    When planting them.....dig the hole and place the plant in and fill with straight peat moss. I also mulch with pine bark which is acidic. So it takes effort, but it is possible.

    The fall garlic I put in is poking through the snow in the back yard right now. I have onion sets ready to go this week once this last round of snow burns off. Earlier the better I have found, they take a lot of cold.

    Everything else is started and sitting above the fridge. Started later this year, seems like I was always way too early the last few years.

    I tried in the ground for several years, it works for a while but eventual I got enough dirt/dust working it way into the amended soil that I couldnt keep the PH in the proper range and the plants started suffering. Id be interested in seeing pictures of your plants? How long have you been growing them?

    I will wait until they leaf out to take any pictures. At this rate.....it may take awhile. My plants are on their third year. I have 8 here where I live and 10 more in pots ready to transplant next month at my daughter's new home. I moved last summer and dug all of them up to make the move with me.

    Moved them into anything that they could fit in. 5 gal pails, wastebaskets, large pots etc. Planted the ones I was keeping and left the rest in containers.Then buried the whole pot into the ground. Wasn't sure if they could survive outside on top of the ground. So I will dig them up and transplant them next month. That transplanting puts some stress on them.

    You have yours in pots?Anything special you do for them over winter? What varieties do you have?

    I have patriot, bluecrop, northblue, reka and I think one more... I have them in 20gallon fabric pots right now and I didnt do anything special for htem over the winter so Im not sure theyll survive, this is the first year they have been kept out of the ground. They grew like crazy after being moved into the fabric pots from buried containers, hoping they live! I put them in an area where they spent most of the winter covered with snow, so that should help some.
