Growing grain may seem a bit out of reach for home gardeners and even medium scale growers in our cold climate, but with the right soil preparation, techniques and tools, even a twenty-by-fifty-foot garden plot can grow grain if you select the right varieties of wheat, oats, millet and other grains, that we usually buy in the form of meal or flour.

    I have red quinoa to plant. Any soil prep needed or can i just plant in my clay topsoil? I live on the avalon,NL.

    Better soil will give you better growth, but quinoa is fairly hardy, so try it and let us know how it goes. A bit of online research will give you more information about what quinoa needs for growing conditions.
