Things the Garden Center and Extension Service Won’t Teach You
(This program was originally broadcast April 26, 2011)
When growing foods will make the difference in your health and well being, there are things you need to do now and in the future to make it all work.
Today’s hobby gardens are a place to start, but are rarely something you can really live on. Learn and practice growing the right mix of plants. Set the soil up to nourish and support the plants that will then nourish and support you. Don’t pull all the weeds; learn to eat many of them because they are more nutritious than some of the vegetables in the typical hobby garden.
And one more thing, do you have a plan to fertilize your garden when you can no longer buy fertilizer?
