Welcome back for episode 25. Not episode 52 as i say on the show.
Sorry I’ve been away for so long, alot has happened. I mean aside from the obvious things we’ve all been going through. I hope this episode finds you well.
I’m pivoting yet again. I’ve decided, for now, to just talk about Gardening and leave any other plans off for the time being. From now on this will be a show where I share my gardening experiences, knowledge, and whats going on in Tea Jay’s actual Garden.
In this episode I talk about:
- The pitfalls of trying to Grow Your Own to survive the pandemic
- Some actually great reasons you should be gardening
- Why I Garden
- And some of the interesting plants gracing my garden this year.
For a start I’m groing alot of Bushing and Dwarf Varieties, and looking into getting involved with growing out Micro-Dwarf Tomatoes from https://www.tomato-talk.com/. I’m also trialing Tepary Beans from https://store.experimentalfarmnetwork.org/collections/legumes/products/lofthouse-landrace-tepary-beans . The Experimental Farm Network is a great place to pickup experimental varieties and unfinished hybrids to play around with.
Also an update, since I recorded this there have, in fact, been some food shortages affecting the US. But, every case I’ve heard of so far has been processed foods and beverages. There is a shortage of some Diet sodas, and some brands of Beer. I still feel that my statements in the podcast are substantially correct.
