Ep. 3-16: Permaculture in Texas | Talking Tree Farm: Sylvain & Sarah Clavieres

Last June my husband, son, and I went for a weekend trip to San Antonio. Our last stop before we left town was the Pearl Farmers Market on the north end of the River Walk. A coworker of mine had raved about the Pearl Farmers Market for several years and while we had been able […]

Ep. 3-15: A New Garden Ethic | Benjamin Vogt

I can’t recall just how I came across Benjamin Vogt’s original blog, The Deep Middle, but I’ve been an avid reader of his writings for at least five or six years. His posts were always ones that sought to poke the bear, if you will, ones to provoke you into thinking about your own relationship […]

Ep. 3-14: The Common Milkweed Nursery | Jennifer Kleinrichert & Steve Ross

Several years ago I started reading a blog called The Common Milkweed. I think I was searching for other nature and garden bloggers and came across Jennifer’s blog—but honestly I can’t remember how I landed on the website—however, I was hooked! Over the years they added in The Common Milkweed Nursery and slowly I began […]

Ep. 3-13: All The Seeds

I’m working on getting more guests scheduled for upcoming episodes but until then you’ve got me once again for a solo episode! I recently made a seed purchase from Botanical Interests after I received a gift certificate from my friend Chel. Chel had sent it as a thank you over Christmas for keeping tabs on […]

Welcome to the Jungle A post shared by Ninth Ward Nursery (@ninthwardnursery) on Sep 19, 2017 at 12:52pm PDT What if you took that step from selling the extra cuttings and propagated plants from your garden on Craigslist and Ebay to the next level and upped the game to build your own full-fledged nursery? Sounds […]

Ep. 3-10 : Raising Monarch Butterflies

This episode covers my experience as a newbie keeper of monarch caterpillars. I raised a couple of sets of monarchs this summer and thought it would be worthwhile to pass on some of this information to other people interested in raising monarch butterflies, too. I am by far not an expert in this so if […]

Ep. 3-9: Fall Flower Garden Tour

Today’s episode is another garden tour, this time of our flower garden! During the episode I blanked out on a couple of the names but I hope I covered some of them in the plant list below. This is by far not a comprehensive plant list but just a smattering of some of the ones […]

Ep. 3-8: Hurricane Harvey & Gardening Through Natural Disasters

I wasn’t sure how to talk about Hurricane Harvey or even if I should even discuss it on the podcast. While I experienced some flooding issues related to my garden and yard, my house is still in tact. That said, I think it was and is valuable to talk about the storm and other natural […]

Ep. 3-7: Fall Edible Garden Tour

This is the first in a series of solo episodes for late fall/early winter. Back in October I recorded an audio tour of the the edible garden! I think you will enjoy this episode—there’s a chorus of crows to add some ambiance throughout the show! All of the plants I mentioned are in the show […]

Ep. 3-6: Bromeliads | Joanne Woolsey & Jimbo’s Nursery

Today’s guest is Joanne Woolsey of Jimbo’s Nursery here in Greater Houston. As you will hear in the episode, Jimbo’s is specialty nursery focusing primarily on a variety of bromeliads as well as other tropicals, including succulents. This kind of nursery is very unique for the area! My first visit to Jimbo’s was back in […]
