Re: 8400 ploughing
Why are you plowing the snow under?
I've always heard it's the worst thing you can do with soil
prepartion.

Re: 8400 ploughing
They were plowing because it was there last field that
needed to be plowed and when they began there was no snow.
It's better to plow in the fall so that the soil can break
down. I dont understand how its bad to plow under snow
please explain it to me. They have plowed in way more snow
than that. They most likely assumed it was going to rain in
the next few days because of the call for rain so it wouldnt
make a difference.

Re: 8400 ploughing
That's just some dutch myth...
Doesn't apply here at all whatsoever. They barely know what
snow is. Sure they got snow storms 2 years in a row now, but
when I lived there I saw snow once every 4 years... Never
had a white christmas. Here in canada they have all been
white...

Sneeuw onderploegen heeft hier geen enkel nadelig effect. De
grond bevriest hier dieper dan de sneeuw die daar onderword
geploegd. Het is gewoon een beetje water dat allang weer
gesmolten is omdat het nu weer boven nul is.

Re: 8400 ploughing
Must be a myth. Plowing the snow under gets alot of moisture
with the stalks to help them decompose. This might no be so
nice to say but it's kinda funny to see a dutchmen that just
arrived handle their first winter. Once inch of snow and
there out plowingthe drive way all bungled up. Just what my
friends did.

Take care,

Nathan

Re: 8400 ploughing
Hey,

Well thats not so bad. Atleast they are out practicing for
when the real snow arrives!! It seems like whenever they
get more than a 1/4" in Toronto, they have to call in the
Army!! :-D

Hey Gerard, If I may, when your family decided to move to
Canada, what was the thought going through your mind about
all the snow we get? ( compared to Holland anyway )

Re: 8400 ploughing
I don't recall ever being worried about winter, but I was 14
at the time. Snow just meant that there were new things we
could do outside (GT+fourwheeler :-D)
We did look at the climate, but more at the growing season
than the winter weather. We are somewhat in the snowbelt
which we did on purpose to make sure we get enough rain in
dryer years, and that has definately paid off. So I can
confidently say that we weren't affraid of it when we came.
We moved in December, right into winter! Pretty sure it
snowed on my the first night in Canada.
