Today’s main topic on the podcast is about how to protect your garden from everything that wants to eat it before you. No matter if you live far in the country or in the heart of the city, your garden is a target for wildlife.
In Today’s Daily Blog Post I talk about my cucumber “tree”, I also share a bit about the lettuce I’m letting go to seed and I talk about the ripe grapes I’ve been waiting impatiently for.
The main topic of today’s podcast is about identifying common problems with tomato plants and organic ways to fix the problems. This is a question I get asked often and I see being asked all over social media, “what’s going on with my tomato plant?”and I have to say it’s a good question because in the many years I have been growing tomatoes I’ve discovered they are a fickle plant and at one time or another i’ve had about every problem with them.
Mulch can be one of the greatest assets available for your garden, it can be used in the garden beds to suppress weeds and to create wonderful rich soil with tons of nutrients for your plants. It is also great to use in your garden pathways and around trees and shrubs. I also like to use it just to add more curb appeal to my landscaping by putting it around my house and sidewalks in shady areas where not much will grow. All in all mulch is a wonderful resource to have but where do you get an abundance of it without breaking the bank?
On today’s podcast I discuss 4 “invasive weeds” I allow to grow in my garden and why.
If you’re limited on gardening space or maybe want to block out some neighbors and get a little privacy in your backyard then building some planter boxes with trellises may be the way to go. These great additions to the garden are easy to build, inexpensive and can provide you with a lot of food for years to come.
On today’s daily blog post I share a video tour of our garden trellises, how to make zucchini chips and how I fight tomato blight.
