Ep. 1-5: Adjusting Gardening Expectations & What’s Growing in January

So. I had a big fail this week! I sat down and recorded a podcast with my internet friend Leigh. Unfortunately I had issues getting both sides of the conversation to record! I thought about trying to make it work but in the end Leigh and I both decided it would be better to just rerecord at a later date!

Today I’m talking a little bit about adjusting expectations when faced with a life event, whether it’s a new baby, illness, or something such a moving. It’s always a little difficult to not feel as if you can keep up with your old ways when faced with life changes and it can certainly get the best of us. I also talked about what was growing in both the vegetable and flower garden here in mid-January in southeast Texas. We’ve had a very mild winter so far but are keeping a wary eye on February’s usual wrath!

I hope I didn’t get too rambly for y’all!

Ep. 1-4: Suburban Gardening with Curtis

Over the New Year’s weekend I sat down with my brother, Curtis, to talk about his garden for a little while. He gardens in zone 8a/b in the DFW area of Texas near where we grew up. He’s got a typical suburban lot but has done a lot of great things with it! We covered quite a bit in 30 short minutes: chickens, composting, vegetable gardening, growing wheat, flower gardening, and a smattering of other goodies!

The audio quality should be better this go around as I got a new microphone for Christmas. However, you can still hear kiddos in the background at times—that’s the perils of podcasting with little ones, even if the door is shut! Show notes are below!

Ep. 1-3: Garden Planning for 2016

In today’s episode I sat down with my husband Chris to talk about our garden plans for 2016! We ran through topics such as composting, beekeeping, pruning fruit trees, managing native habitats, the vegetable garden, and being friendly with snakes. Show notes are below with some more detailed information on what we talked about!
