Ep. 2-9: Backyard Butterflies | Erin Gettler

Butterfly-Book

When I had Erin on last year for Episode 1-9 she was in the end phase of finishing her first book. That book was Butterflies: Backyard Guide which has recently been published. I knew during our last conversation that I wanted to have Erin back on the podcast to talk not only about putting the book together but also about butterflies as she is an extremely knowledable enthusiast about butterflies and moths. That enthusiasum shows through in our conversation and I think you will catch the butterfly bug to get out and learn more about the species in your part of the country or world.

You can follow Erin at her blog The Familiar Wilderness and the Bird Seed Field Guide and on Instagram.

Ep. 2-8: Perennial Edibles And The Garden As Art | Renee Garner

Perennial onions about to take over! Egyptian walking, potato onions, multipliers, and l'itoi

A post shared by Renee Garner (@wolfienthesneak) on

Today’s guest is Renee Garner an artist based out of North Carolina. We ‘met’ online at least a decade ago on Gayla Trail’s You Grow Girl forums, when those were still around. Over the years we’ve exchanged emails, I’ve bought several pieces of her art work, and we’ve seen the addition of children to our gardens! Our conversation was shorter than I would have liked due to circumstances on both of our ends and I didn’t get to cover everything I wanted to ask her about her garden and gardening methods. She recently rented goats to clear some areas of her yard to expand a garden and that was a topic I didn’t get a chance to delve into that! If you are interested in permaculture and growing perennial edibles, this episode is for you! You can visit Renee on her blog or follow her gardening and home renovations on her Instagram account.

Ep. 2-7: A Grassy Obsession | John Markowski


If you have been reading garden blogs for any length of time you’ve probably come across John Markowski’s The Obsessive Neurotic Gardener. John is gardener based out of rural New Jersey and has designed his gardens over the years to focus on ornamental grasses and native plants. We began the chat discussing his garden’s evolution and how he came to become a passionate ornamental grass enthusiast and how he is now channeling that passion into a book! We also talked about his involvement with a pipeline project that has directly affected his property and how you can be an advocate for yourself should something similar happen to you.
