I am so addicted to this podcast. I feel like she is a friend sitting on my back porch, drinking tea and talking. I love how she will talk about her failures along with her success. She is truly a God send! She has gotten me out of the house and back in my garden after 7 years. Thank you Jill!!

Description

Welcome to the Beginner's Garden Podcast! This is the podcast with easy-to-understand resources, tips, and information to help beginning gardeners get the most out of their gardening adventure -- big or small. When I began gardening in 2013, I scoured books and Internet resources to find all the information I could. Although good information was abundant, I had trouble understanding all the gardening lingo and sifting through the information to figure out what would work for me. In this podcast, my aim is to provide helpful information while explaining the gardening lingo as we go. I want to equip YOU to have the best start ever this gardening season!

144- Fall Garden Prep
35:21

One of the biggest mistakes I see in fall gardening is planning and getting started too late. It's a good idea to start thinking about the fall as early as July! I know you may be worn out from gardening in the middle of summer, but a fall garden is absolutely worth it.

 

But before you get started planting, there are steps you will want to take in the planning process to get your fall garden started out right.

It was a surprise to me when I first started gardening that not all of my crops handle the hot summer well.

 

How do you make the most of your summer gardening in the highest heat? Nicole Burke of Gardenary joins me today on the Beginner’s Garden Podcast to discuss how to best handle our gardens in the heat. Click below to listen or continue reading.

139- Organic Pesticides and their Uses with Joe Lamp'l
50:56

 

Most of us set out to do just that. But what happens when you see pests munching on your crops? Do you ignore them? Look up a homemade "organic" pesticide? Purchase one from the store? Or are you tempted to throw in the towel and find the strongest pesticide on the home market?

 

We all want a healthy garden but are faced with those questions when insects come to our gardens. It always helps to talk to successful organic gardeners and ask what works. But I wanted to go a step further.

 

In this episode of the Beginner's Garden Podcast, I asked Joe Lamp'l about not only his personal practices but also which organic pesticides he recommends and how to use them.

Q&A: Why is my lettuce growing really tall?
05:01

Why is my lettuce growing really tall? When your lettuce starts to grow tall instead of out, it means it’s trying to bolt. This means it’s ready to produce flowers and seeds. When it grows tall like this, it means the end of your harvest is near and the plant is starting to switch from producing lettuce to producing seed.

I frequently get questions about organic fertilizers -- specifically, what to use and when to use it. For this topic, I turned to Joe Lamp'l and in this episode of the Beginners' Garden Podcast, we talk about organic fertilizer options.

126 - 3 Raised Bed Soil Mixes Compared
41:41

Have you ever wondered what kind of raised bed soil mix is the best?

I have been growing in raised beds from the very beginning of my garden journey. Up until last year, I used native soil on my property to fill them. But when I needed to find soil outside my property for three new raised beds last season, I decided to conduct an experiment. I tested three different raised bed soil mixes and today I'm sharing the results of my year-long test.

Make sure you avoid anything impermeable, like plastic or landscape fabric. Organic material such as cardboard or newspaper could be an option but isn’t always necessary. Listen for more help deciding if you should line the bottom of your raised beds!

116 - Weedless Gardening with Lee Reich
53:46

One of the most common struggles for gardeners is how to deal with weeds. There are different strategies that we can try, but what really works? We may not ever have a weedless garden, but we can certainly strive for having to weed less.

I had the opportunity to talk with a renowned horticulturist, Dr. Lee Reich, about his book Weedless Gardening and he shared a few of his best tips for protecting your garden from being overcome by weeds. You may recognize Dr. Reich from my conversation with him about growing blueberries. He is a wealth of knowledge on so many topics.

48:16

Is it possible that organic gardening can actually be an option for everyone? We all know the high prices of organic food at the grocery store. But what if you could grow your own organic vegetables where you live?

A common misconception is that you have to have a lot of land to grow a garden. But that's just not true! CaliKim has been growing her own organic fruits and vegetables in a small California backyard for years.

And she has become so passionate about making sure others know how doable this is -- as you might have seen in her YouTube channel -- that she has written a book to equip new gardeners in this fun and exciting venture of home organic gardening.

Kim's new book, Organic Gardening for Everyone, walks you through every step to preparing, planting, and harvesting your garden. She focuses on the big picture of why you would want to grow you own food and what it can mean for your family and your community.

In this episode of the Beginner's Garden Podcast, Kim answers some of your common questions about organic gardening and gardening in a small space. Then, make sure and grab a copy of Organic Gardening for Everyone!

114 - The Autopilot Garden with Luke Marion
01:00:55

How does a garden that requires minimal input and maximum harvest sound to you? Instead of you working for it, your garden works for you. It's almost like the garden runs on autopilot. Sounds too good to be true, right?

Not according to MI Gardener's Luke Marion. Luke spends 15 minutes a WEEK in his 5,000 sq ft garden, outside of the busy planting time. So, how does he do it?

Luke shares his methods in his book, The AutoPilot Garden, but in today's post and episode on the Beginner's Garden Podcast, he gives a bit of insight into some of the primary methods he has put in place in his garden: core gardening and high-intensity spacing.

110 - A Gardener's Guide to Getting Started with Chickens, with Nicole Gennetta
58:13

Have you ever wondered why gardeners so often have chickens? My family brought in our first flock of chickens six years ago and added a second a few years later. I love them. They do wonderful things for my garden and the eggs are just a bonus.

If you've ever considered adding a couple of hens (or more) to your garden, it may seem overwhelming to know how to get started.

I had the opportunity of interviewing Nicole from the Backyard Bounty Podcast and Heritage Acre Markets about raising chickens. She has been raising chickens her whole life so she had a lot to offer beginners looking to add a small flock. In this episode of the Beginner's Garden Podcast, we explore what it looks like to introduce chickens to your garden endeavor.

108- Crop Rotation Simplified
40:14

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase, crop rotation? Maybe it's something you think you have a basic understanding of, but when it comes to actually putting it into practice in your garden, you come up with more questions than answers.

Is it necessary to rotate your crops from year to year, especially if you grow in a small space? Do all crops need rotation? What does it mean to rotate by plant families, and how are you supposed to know which plants are in which families anyway? What if your garden consists of more of one plant family than another? What about companion planting and succession planting with crop rotation?

I have to be honest -- at this point I usually throw my hands in the air wondering how I'll ever figure out this impossible puzzle.

If you've ever wondered any of those things, in this episode of the Beginner's Garden Podcast, we'll talk about crop rotation at a non-phD agricultural level.

After the garden season has closed, do you ever wish you could grow food indoors? Maybe it seems like a pipe dream. You think your winter food will come solely from what you've preserved and what you can buy at the grocery store.

But it doesn't have to be that way. Even if you have a small indoor space, you can add fresh vegetables and herbs to your table, even in the dead of winter.
