When your colleagues the fake news media that's there to make you look good. Tell you that you have a credibility problem. That's a big problem. Check this out so we can talk about the border crisis. We can talk about the period of about one hour on Friday, where we learned that the drone strike that had been touted as an attack and a victory over Isis actually killed a group of civilians, including seven Children. France, recalling its ambassador from from Washington because of that nuclear deal, they were cut out of between the United States and the UK and Australia and also the Covid booster news. That all came on Friday. How is the White House managing all this? And what do you expect to hear from the president at the U. N on Tuesday?

You know whether this you could we can talk about the border problems could say there's years in the making, but it's pretty clear. We have a bigger problem now than we've had in years. And this is a these policies have turned into becoming a magnet, so he's got a lot of work to do. You Dang right. He's got a lot of work to do. Joe

"When we were recording ash body was in trump. Wasn't she to begin with we'd we'd watch that first set of hers and was really a bad set of tennis from bolton admitted as much afterwards. She said she really struggled to adjust to the night conditions. The court was much better than she was expecting. She didn't have any fail on her forehand whatsoever and her serve at the start of that match. I think she had hit five votes. After a couple of service games he was really really struggling but then as we were recording she got it together and i think we pretty much finished the podcast with her five to up in that third set and in control having taken charge looking like she was going to win and then what happened was that she loves serve twice when serving for the match and that had been a theme of how i two rounds hair. She'd lost serve both times. Seven for the action still recovered to win. She'd been insistent and have press conference that it wasn't an issue. But you know you can't argue with the evidence rarely. That's that's four times in three rounds. She's lost to serve when serving for the match and she really just didn't close the match. In the way that. I expected her to and fu credit to shelby roaches. She played exceptionally well. I thought she hung around rallies far better than i've ever really seen her. Do i think jose really big hitter and that can often not go hand in hand with consistency and she certainly has got a lot of power but she was smart with tennis. She was looping the ball up moon boiling it to the bharti back can which was just a great tactic and feels like something. The rest of the tour needs to try and adopt if they

Wasps With Eric Eaton
"Welcome to the program erica. Maybe i should say bug eric. Has i think that's what your blog is called. How are you good. Thank you for the invitation. Yes it's a wonderful book. It's beautiful and incredibly interesting I thought i'd be afraid and that speaking of that. I learned a new word the word for the fear of wasps wasps. Maybe you want to pronounce it for me. Oh gosh i. It's latin i think it's seeks a phobia. I believe phobia. Yeah on your preference a subcategory you say of intimacy phobia fear of insects. Which i don't understand but a lot of people have that I think were influenced By so many outside forces that you know it's easy to become anti-homophobia even if you don't start off that way yeah so can we define what you as. An entomologist think that a wasp is. Because i don't think you just mean the guys in the paper nests on my back porch eaves or hanging in the crab apple branches in the backyard that i come upon and go. I don't think that's all that a wasp is so can you tell me your version of who's a wasp. What's a wasp right exactly. The our cultural definition of wasps is is what you just shared. Which is the social wasps that we tend to associate with aggressiveness. because they're defending a nest full of their vulnerable siblings in f- larva or pupil stage that can't defend themselves so they're adult siblings. Do that for them. But the scientific definition of wasps pretty much encompasses. It's trending actually towards encompassing the entire order high monopoly which includes wasps bees and ants and so all all those are traditionally known as social insects but the overwhelming majority of wasps and bees are solitary. Meaning that each Individual female creates her own nest or in some cases. There's no nest involved at all. The the wasp will simply lay an egg and a host and then go on to do that. Repeatedly

My umbrella brand is real food whole life and then I have a book that feel good effect wage and a podcast the feel-good affect. My specialty is easy simple habits for health and happiness and that whole life piece that you mentioned. That's the connection so dead. We need habits in order to have a whole life and most of us go about habits the wrong way frankly and we overcomplicate things. We focus our attention on the things that do matter and then we end up in the same spot. We were under what's wrong and often we beat ourselves up for it and it's not really our fault. It's really the approach that's not working. So one of the parts of the feel-good pap roach in our method is something called the eighty-twenty rule and that's what you were mentioning so I can talk more about that but that's kind of the overview of like why habits and what does that have anything to do with dating and it's really like, okay.

"Timing is really good because i. I don't think the seeds will ship till the new year to people sorta with a normal catalog but we can do it now and we can put in if i were to give. Don't tell my sister. But like let's say i want to give her The cutting salary collection from lane salman or whatever I can put in her email and she's going to get the education she's gonna get to join right to become part of it. She's going to get to give feedback right. I mean that's i'm getting the seeds plus the experience. If i give it as a gift is that right. Yeah yeah for sure that that's why we've launched this project now because we really feel like it's a great gift to give for people during the holiday season and like you mentioned folks can purchase the sees and then put in the recipient's email and they'll get notified later When you want them to get the notification that they they were given a gift of a seed collection. And they'll get asked to create a c- c- blink dot com account and be part of this experience. Growing cutting salary growing tomatoes with craig growing cabbage with cowden. I i know when i started gardening. Gosh like fourteen years ago. I wish i had this to help me along in the process of learning how to grow well. And that's the thing is that gardner's traditionally as with farming a mentor mentorship. There's a hand me down there so you learned from your grandmother. You'll learn from your neighbor. You learned from someone who's already tried it in your local spot right so in the effort for sure and with a wonder of technology. Especially the the technology swirl that we've been thrown in with the pandemic increasingly we're learning for more and more people online and And yeah i'm excited about this. This form of Sharing growing Expertise with a wider audience. So that everyone can be successful so that eventually maybe were. Wouldn't it be amazing if like even five people in each state or read. I mean e even the smallest number of people to find out. How did you do. Oh i did well to. Oh this one work better for me. Oh me too you know. There's just that i love that. I just love the idea that the potential for it now how many people right now is so seed linked already has an up and running kind of trialing thing going on for a while. Vits not in didn't come from the seed collections. How many people are involved in the seed linked participatory database already. Yes oh we. We launched our first off to wear in twenty nineteen and have been working with like university research trialing programs And with other different like nonprofits that work around seats and right now we have about eighteen hundred and counting people that are participating and rating varieties on our on our Network right now. And i am. We're just excited about continually adding folks to that network in kind of improving the the data points and like you said if if five people each state grew my lettuce collection and we had two hundred and fifty data points of how each of those three let us collect or lettuce varieties performing to those states. That would be immensely helpful in in helping. Other people find varieties that grow well for them and so yeah am just ecstatic about the possibilities of connection and collaboration and just sharing data openly and and the sharing and part. Because i know the link to from having been a garden writer for so many decades the link to the old style list over at cornell records or wherever it is and north carolina state university. Or you know cow. Stay university of california davis bubba. I know where there's like. A great chart that compares all the tomato varieties as far as ex disease or wipe passed or whatever or flavor would. But they're not. They're not accessible. They're not in thing. That are is interactive that can then be added to and you know this dynamic there. They're these charts and graphs in their flat. There on touchable files. You can look at them on your browser hum but that's about it. There's so much information that can be put together. It's going to be very exciting To get that kind of stuff that exists out there but You know much more regional and much more interactive. I think will be very exciting. Yeah i. I'm glad that you mentioned that margaret. There's actually like you said there's tons of data out there already from all these different university breeding programs but Just not all aggregated in one spot. We're really hoping that see blink. Dot com just becomes a central location where everyone can plug in Their data points and just really help help with the process whether it be farmers finding the right variety. Their field gardeners finding right variety for their garden. Breeders that are breeding new varieties feedback on it. The the possibilities are really unmatched. Yeah in the last couple of minutes. I wanted to ask you mr laddis lover and grow Do you wanna give us just the two minute course in any tips or anything about lettuce. You a direct to sewer or a transplant who starts links inside or both or any anything about lettuce that you wanna share. Yes for sure. For sure i I just my wife. And i just love eating lettuce. We eat. let us with breakfast every morning. I don't expect everyone to be that empathy ethic about it but Yeah i for the longest time. I was was into like lettuce. Mixes that i direct seeded really close together and In the last few years. I started transplanting. Things out so starting seeds and soil slats underneath lights in my basement and then planting them out in the garden and I started doing that. Just because i realized i was going through so much more. See when i was using Doing like lettuce. Mix sort of thing. So i really preferred to heads of lettuce and i don't. I don't usually wait until the head of lettuce gets full-sized before harvest. I just keep on cutting the bigger leaves off the side. Just because i can't wait any longer to enjoy the first lettuce of the season. Enjoy a salad. So i just kind of continually harvest leaves On the outer edges of this lorettes and the other thing that i would recommend the people. And i'm sure focuses gardeners realize. There's such a huge diversity of lettuce out there I know my seed collection. I got one heirloom variety really old. German heirloom variety called for ellen shoots that's really delicious and beautiful but then i got the night picked to other brand new varieties from frank martinet wild garden seeds. That think yeah yeah. Frank is one of my breathing heroes. I'm so anytime i can. I try to get seeds from him. and i always picking out new lettuce varieties from franken so i picked to and my favorite lettuce readier butter heart and merrill let oak From wild garden. See these two things that have grown in my garden have grown to love and have every single year But yeah just. I don't with lettuce. I think it's super important. Just to keep experimenting. Keep trying new varieties Lettuce is just such a work of art to a new. Go and look at it in the garden. So stunningly beautiful when you start paging through all these different New varieties that the breeders especially Talking about frank's work. It's so much fun and you get to eat it too. It's like artwork. And you get to enjoy the the to indeed bjorn berkman and with seed linked dot com and these new seed collections.

"I invited today's guests who curated the seed linked lettuce collection and is also part of the linked team wisconsin based bjorn. Bergman is like each of us an avid gardener and he's also a longtime participant various seed savers exchange programs and. He confessed to being positively mad for growing and eating salad. So hello bjorn. Thanks for making time today. Yeah thank you so much for having me on market. It's a pleasure to be here today. Yes so like. I said brave new world and also it's a bit of a mouthful not your basic seed shopping experience or experience at all so i wanna sort of Start you know. We're going to talk mostly about the curated seed collections which are fun and great for giving us a gift as well during this upcoming holiday season. But i want it. I like backtracking. Get the elevator pitch on seed linked the bigger project at this dimension of And what problem. It's trying to address as a whole and so. Can you do that for us. Can you help us with that. Yeah for sure. I'd love to And i guess to connect with all the listeners here right. I want to have everyone kind of envisioned When they go and purchase seats every spring Kind of spreading out other seed catalogs on their counter and perusing through all the pages which i know is one of the most delightful thing sides during the time to do So you're looking to see cadillacs and you're trying to decide what to grow and you might be Allured by the beautiful pictures of the description. You might have a friend that told you that this variety is great and it's delicious and performs well But when when. I kind of think of that idea. Compared with today's tech world where we're so connected in it's kind of an outdated model with so many other things we can go on and look at reviews of things before we buy them whether it be a car child seat You know bicycle or even visiting a restaurant. And with the there's really not the equivalent of that and so see bling dot com. We're really aiming to kind of connect the dots between all the different seed industry stakeholders so gardeners and farmers and seed see breeders and chefs and bring them together on our platform to help Kinda create a more collaborative and resilient seat system that helps people so at the highest level And we're not quite there yet We're we're a start up business but Gardeners and farmers can go onto our sites and search for varieties Maybe say they wanna find a tomato that performs well by then by by growing and they can search for tomatoes and find reviews for tomatoes from other people that That that have grown tomatoes by them. And so it's like you said it's a big citizen science project and you just welcome everyone to the table to participate so when new way in this again newish overall bigger project of seed linked dot com one new way. People can participate right now is that they can order some of these curated seed collections. Like the one you have put together of some favorite lettuces and And so that's a little different from like even if i went and bought a lettuce assortment at a regular seed catalog. It's a little bit different. So let's say what is this seed collection aspect of seed linked. Yeah definitely it. It was We created it kind of in response to this past spring. A covid nineteen ten you know. Oh boy yeah. I know that. In your world margaret. There's there's just so many people that were excited about gardening for the first time wanting to buy seed seed companies where seeing sales that were two or three hundred percent higher than they're usually than there used to and We saw this happening at sea. And we're like. How can we plug into this excitement about gardening and Capture all these new gardeners and help them along the way be successful with growing things for the first time and seed. Collections was born out of that that interest and What the idea is is that we partnered with some really awesome food system change makers and they curated a collection of of varieties together. And so what i did is i carry the three of my favorite lettuce varieties. I love growing in my backyard garden and folks can go on and by that collection but beyond just getting the lettuce seeds they get a really guided. Learning experience on the theory as the curator does a check in three times throughout the growing season with participants Maybe yeah yeah. They get to learn how to maybe like plants. The seeds at the beginning of the season. Check in midseason Maybe look at disease or pest problems. And then at the end of the season Looking at harvest and how to use these delicious vegetables in here in your kitchen which is why we garden in the first place or grow vegetables in the first place is to enjoy the bounty in the kitchen right and then The other other piece to this as well is that Folks are part of a collaborative trial with the collection as well and so they're invited to create an account on seedlings and through our website. And we also have a mobile app. People can rate each variety how it performs In their garden or on their farm so they rate different traits like appearance flavour yield disease resistance and all of those Those ratings they provide are part of our citizen science database and other folks search in the future and the other piece is well is on our site. There's a social feed where people can interact with other people that are participating with the curator's ask questions answer questions and just share their expertise so this reminds me a little bit. Isn't there some kind of weather citizen. Science project that where people participate in. There's also some like facebook group. I i'm i'm trying to remember the name. It's a funny name. It's a i. I might not get the acronym totally correct. Let's coco roha out of fort collins. Colorado right right right right right c. o. c. o. r. a. h. s. Right right. And i don't remember in.

"Last time to talk about Gr ground covers and he's laughing already I haven't even finished speaking hello there when you telling him I promise. Margaret I can. So we should say before we get started, we're going to have a giveaway of the shade, the new Shade Garden Book which is one of your most popular topics and includes a lot of, of course, ground covers because shade is often made by plants that needs someone at their feet well I. Don't want to well I can plug the book but I it has an entire chapter ground covers and it has a whole page unsaid. What's the name of that said I looked in the book and there is and that's pretty exciting. Yeah. So. So last time we were speaking on the show. I. I guess I. Should Suppose I should ask you have. Did you have any frost in September? Well it's funny because you know it's like shorts one day long pants the next day coach the next day shorts the next day. Yeah other to there were three nights of Light Very Light Frost and the plants looked okay. But the car was covered with what looked like ice so you know continues to be strange doesn't it very strange and so so dry? I. Know You're not as dry as I am a couple of hours apart but you are yeah. But you've technically had more precipitation than I have a couple of hours few hours away but still northeast is dry. So I put all the hoses away I, took all the hoses out. I see the revolving door theory of gardening. uh-huh. Yeah. All right So last time we spoke I confessed to being on a war against ground cover.

And my only background with dried flowers really as being the granddaughter of a sort of Victorian era lady and I mean lady as she was very proper my grandmother who gardened and had a wooden flower press and made pressed flower pictures of them. But . we didn't have arrangements and today we're GonNa talk about kind of growing in arranged drying in arranging things. . So can i. . just try anything or like where does it all begin? ? Yeah well, , I mean, , yes, , you can dry anything basically, , but it's not all going to look good right right Oh. . There's there's specific things that really lend themselves to trying <hes> that either have like you know keep their color or fun textures or that are otherwise useful for whatever you want to use them for it because there's all kinds of things you can use them for you. . Okay So. They're . sort of. . In in exceed catalogs before along the way, , this year's been going it seems like it's just whooshing by in a weird red dystopia way but. . You know before we know what we're. . GonNa see seed catalogs and if I'm looking, , there are some that are everlasting is right and those are sort of the dried flower. . Those are the ones that that's what they're supposed to be for is that the idea and then but you dry other things? ? Yeah Right. . So there's all the ones that you think of when you think of dried flowers right? ? Straw flower comes to mind <hes> status is one the those flowers Gomphrena maybe you know the globe amaranth which are practically dry when they're fresh, , right? ? Right hell that they're going to be a good dried flower. . 'cause you touch them when they're freshman they're all crinkly and they make that kind of rattled found. . You know. . Yeah. . So so those we always do I, , grow lots and lots of that stuff because that stuff they're good dry flowers because they keep their color so well. . So they're bright vibrant colors and then you try them and they stay bright and vibrant, , which is really nice. . But then there's also a whole bunch of other things that you would look at out in the garden and. . Wonder. . If maybe it would make a nice dried flower and <hes> a lot of the Times. They . do a lot of the Times. . It takes some experimentation and <hes>, , and sometimes there's things that look like they wouldn't dry at all. . But you know surprise if you try it out, , they do quite nicely I tried ridiculous <hes> this spring and they dried beautifully and I was very. . pleased. . I am imagining are do you in fact grow like either as Lark per del Finian for drying? ? Do you is that? ? Yeah I grow I wrote extra extra extra large spread for drying 'cause it drives. . So beautifully at holds its color, , you have a lot of choices of colors. . <hes>. . So that's one that I used to just grow a fresh flower and <hes> always regretted every winter not having more of it dried. . So now I think I've doubled production, , we grow like eight hundred feet of lurks per now and. . Probably. . At least half of that goes up into the drying loss and we'll talk about the drying lost and all that good stuff in a minute. . We will get a little more info on the what I yeah. . Yeah. . The what Yeah I've been walking around the fields the last few days you know thinking about what's going to go into the drying loss and actually you know I, , start putting things in the drawing left as early as <hes>. . Well with Renungio is April, , April may June I used to really wait and like you know those couple of days before the first frost came I would run around like an insane person trying to cut all the flowers. . And hang them in the law. . <laughter> but turns out it all works out better. . If you just <hes>, , you know pick the nice stuff the garden when it's ready in a timely manner <hes> go figure. . So, , <hes>. . So right now when I'm walking around, there's , all of you know there's this drop lower in the status and I have a new row of Hydrangea, , <hes>. . which are really nice that will drive beautifully and then conference and. . So many kinds of Celosias are viewed for drying <hes>, , and then the marigolds that you've mentioned that's something that people are always surprised about I do the tall cutting miracle <hes> and they keep their their color really really well, , they drive. . Really nicely. . And then some other things I have hanging up already are you know from the perennials that has come and gone already? ? I dry a lot of economic. . <hes> that goal Jaro cloth of gold or the parkers variety. . <hes>. . That keeps its color really nicely I didn't do it this year but <hes> back annual I guess bells of Ireland drives beautifully. . moby m you know is one of my favorites. . <hes> actually what the common name winged everlasting, right? , ?

"Garden with Margaret Roach your weekly invitation to dig in and grow when I got my copy of the new Peterson Reference Guide to woodpeckers of North America I tracked down. The authors email address at once and sent him a message. I'm mad for woodpeckers I wrote and Steven Chunk wrote back. Mad for woodpeckers is a very good thing. I suspect if you're not already that. By the end of the show today, you'll be mad for them to and positively amazed at their physical capabilities and their critical role in our ecosystems. Until I read his author Bio, I felt lucky to live with six hard-working and highly entertaining woodpecker species here in the garden, but Stephen A. Longtime conservationist who also leads international woodpecker conservation tours lives across the continent on the eastern slopes of the cascade mountains in Bend Oregon in a spot. That's home to eleven. Breeding sees I am so jealous. I'm so glad to welcome Stephen Chunk to the program today to talk about are mutually favorite group of birds. The would packers. What book this is Stephen Congratulations. Well thank you very much. Margaret and I'm honored to be a part of your show. It must've taken John's to it it. It's just so. Thorough. I mean so. It made it the little like E on. But I'm very happy to be able to hold it in my hand now and happy that you're able to hold it. It's quite a thing so just to set the scene Can you tell us? How many woodpecker species are there like worldwide in the US and so forth? Okay. It, it depends a little on whom you ask based on some. Differences in taxonomy, but in general there about two hundred woodpecker species around the world, and there are twenty three species for North America, and that's north. America north of Mexico, okay! And in terms of size I mean the ones that I'm familiar with I guess it would be kind of six ish inches of the Downey to sixteen or eighteen, or so of the ICEE -ffiliated. Maybe you say piloted, but you know that would be my range in size. What's the range in the United States or North America inside? That's about right the only exception would be including, the ivory billed woodpecker, which may be extinct, but nonetheless part of our. North American Eva Fun and it was bit larger than the Palliative so. The book does cover those, but you're right the down as one of the smallest deckers in the world, actually and the Palliative is one of the march woodpeckers in the world. Yeah, so I see maybe most of mine year round, or maybe all of them or much of the year, maybe the yellow bellied sap soccer kind of disappears a little bit, but I think maybe he's around, but I. don't see him Are, they mostly non migrants are what's their pattern of their sort of where they live their territory? How does that work? Well most woodpeckers in the world are what we call sedentary, which does not mean they sit on the couch all day. It means that they don't migrate right and in the United. States in north..

"Oh so you can infer okay because I kind of you know I kind of think that about plants in general but I you know I didn't know Sue ooh okay. So we're GONNA really if we wanted to have the best shot at success. We're going to do a little analysis of the conditions I and the space and so forth breath and then we're going to go plant. Shopping are the right. If if I want to get started with some friends other some that you feel that are not only beautiful but are really doers. You know that that you would like to see people try and have success with or something about yeah definitely are and and I I mean there are certainly quite a number of them is not limited to one or two firms can be finicky and they can sometimes get a bad reputation because if you get a maiden hair and you don't have to take care of it and drives and dies on you then you think. Well ferns are like that and they're not so there's quite a number of them. I have had a lot of favorites. Of course I like Some are much easier to get some him or little harder to get but there is a type of bird's nest which is the common name is Japanese bird's nests and it's spleen am antique one But that species is smaller and narrower leaves and can be kind of containerized and kept more compact easier easier and for longer times and I find it to be really one of the best and really handsome and their varieties. That have very crested tips. OBS- there's one that's really crested. It's called Leslie and there's one that's lightly crested in its cold Chrissy So you could get a kind of plane. Strap leave for one. That's just very wavy on the edges or ones that have these great cresting and they're really pretty tough I. I liked him a lot. So the Japan's yeah go ahead. No Japanese bird's nest and riotous okay. also what a lot of people just call. Oh Boston for and that's actually a species whose botanical name has never leap this exultation and those are pretty good for the home. I actually have a big one of those which is a variety called call tiger which has nice striping in it. Oh and that's A. That's one of my favorites As well as some of the miniatures but those can be a little trickier but there's an closely related species. That's never leave this quarter folio and its common name is tuber for fern or to Tuber Sword for fern it makes little tubers In the soil along the stolen and stuff that run through the soil so that one one is really durable. It's upright it's happened. Some very common as a landscape plant in any tropical or sub tropical area but it makes a great indoor fern as well. It's just really tough and there's a very popular variety of it that's smaller And that's solemin buttons okay and that's one of my favorites and that is really easy. Okay and these are the very different looking. I'm imagine yeah yeah gives you nice. Actually I like to mix them together to induce gardens because they have great combination. They make a great combination. You know for interest right So those are some of my real top favorites but I mean I could probably rattle off a dozen listener so Depending on how many one here about how much time you have tells a couple more at dinner on your top list list than and then let's talk about some cultural stuff and so forth so yeah okay. So there's a group a general group they're botanically called terrorists and there's a P in front of the T.. There right island and terrorists actually Greek fern and these are called great absorb not grape break. AAC FERNS B. R. K. E. Right Okay and there's a number of different species but there are few that are really common and the the creedon brake fern is probably the most common with most varieties and those will grow nicely so some of them are very gated. Some of them are more finely. He Cut They're they're interesting. And then there's two other species One is ponca which is one of the most common and it's got a nice ice creamy white variegation on it so it's very very popular it's often mislabeled or identified as a terrorist critic Elbow Laniado but it's not that But if if you see that name it's probably that fern incorrectly labeled and then in one that's silvery much more silvery than creamy white and those are either silver lace fern by common name You were the Victorian lace fern those are terrorists and Sephora warmest and they're just two different cultivars but and they look very similar but they have a nice silvery worry combination with the Green. So you can get some really nice coloring going in there and texture and those are really pretty tough so so. That's another top one. Okay the Rabbit's foot group..

"You're not in the minds me when I lost my hair sometimes a little patchy thing coming in I do. I do renew the the pads and I kind of do it in the spring right. I actually I did it. This fall too and nothing happened. So 'cause September was so incredibly dry but I usually for for most of the places where they're still is grass. I'll spread about half an inch. Layer of compost directly on the grass in. Rake it in in some places. I'll put some soil mix with compost end grass seed and try to patch it over. I awesome Saad sometimes. Put that down even so some grass seed in that when inserted a different color. which is Kinda Weird? I now I now but I have these I have these things. I don't know exactly what they're for. I think that they interlock and they have big spaces in them so I can put them down on the grass grassy. Still run the wheelbarrow over them. and the dog's still stay off them and that helps when you. If you're trying to grow grow grass with dogs and Wilbur on yourself you inevitably need to walk there. Well and that's the problem is and as I said you know. I'm going to have the first week tours and the first week of June torso. When is this going to grow you know again? I'm going to be closing off areas. I guess but I have to do it. I have to do it because because otherwise. Ah Things get out of proportion. Misshapen and again the pads get narrow and so forth. So I don't have to do every single one and in fact keeping up with the watering and says another place where have to acknowledge my limitations and keep it simple I have to pick an area and say hey. I'm going to renovate this one in. May you know. And I'm going to renovate this sworn in august-september period you know not do the whole thing and have the places impassable every in every direction do you ever use aggressee. That's coated with the voice. I think I'm going to start. I think I'm going to do that this year because And my objection. Is that a lot of that. Has a chemical fertilizer sir included in it. And that's my objection because I don't really want to purchase a product that has chemical fertilizer. So I'm going to do a little homework on on on that but I like your idea with the compost. I mean that's really the old style best way to go about it. And there's another wonderful thing that A friend a science he kind of friend told me about not long ago research from Cornell University and Actually Iowa state I believe it was Got Together gather because they wanted to Was the turf grass group at each university that was trying to help with Damaged areas of football fields was where the research began on and also crabgrass coming into those damaged areas where the turf was weak. And you know 'cause crabgrass it's like an annual it'll so into any void. Speaking of nature loves a vacuum vacuum and so that research led to this and they didn't WanNa user besides To kill off anything and to prep the new areas though the repaired areas so it they experimented in the camp with a protocol and it's best done and again like August September and these are cold weather cold cold winters zones I'm talking about Iowa and Cornell University upstate New York where you do four times in a row two weeks apart apart in that sort of late summer into fall period you oversee just using your spreader you know like you would put fertilizer on with a spreader aggressee with spreader. nope wrap up at all. You just mowed the lawn and overseas four times two weeks apart and with perennial riot. Specially and it's it's amazing the results. They've gotten so it's like nope rap. No you know. Core aeration no detaching no massive acid bringing in of of soil or compost and. So that's another way to like fix areas that are weedy or especially. Have you know crabgrass asked invasion is the idea that the ones coming up or shaping the next one yes exactly and so And end because especially again it was originally. Craig was one of the big problems and that tends to happen bare areas so there was the opportunity and also doing it in late in the season. It's Komo you're mowing even the crabgrass down so that it doesn't set seed so that you're not getting more crabgrass for next year So you're you're seating into these areas various but it really is apparently quite effective so I've read all the research reports I'll give the Lincoln the transcript of the show if people are interested in that I've got to do some of this in spring however okay taking notes camp sorry slathered on about four times. Yes and I'll give you. I'll give you the link to. It's a very interesting report and it's been sort of synthesized sized You know for lay people as well but it's it's very Very positive so yeah well will I resolved to clean my tools and I never clean them enough resolve to put things away after a US them. My whole life never done that. I mean I do it you know. It's just out of my mind. Separated at birth or something or is that possible that you know you've seen some people are cooking while while they're cooking their cleaning. Yeah I can't imagine and you're a good cook but you don't do that right you just pilot. I'm I'm better because I'm mindful of of it now that it's because in the end you're gonNA stuff yeah searches. Try to do it if you can do it. let's see you know a along in many times when I've traveled around the country. Speaking of Omni people and they they'll make a promise like will say. Oh you want that plant out got ten let we send you one and they never do that. Most people don't so I resolved years ago. If I say that out loud to anyone I will follow through and I'm sure they're surprised and I just sent three saplings of American Linden to Minnesota to a couple who I met who said Oh they were trying to fight American Linden and they couldn't find them for their big poverty and blue made a wonderful box and I sent five foot tall. American Linden's Beirut route so I think that's nice and I'm going to do the rest of my life or keep my mouth. Okay if you promise you are going to follow through. Okay that's right okay okay a lot So and any other that you want any other sort of resolutions that you've got going on over there. Will you know every year is they. Don't shop I know don't buy anymore anymore. plants right. Don't believe anymore plants right has going. Oh and then I ended up healing men. I think I might make a a new surfing. When we first moved here we made a big nursery bed and everything up plugged in? Then you could really think about it and still impulse buy A. But I've got some land across the river that's open but it's got deer and it's got black qualms that's two issues to deal with but I might might make a little fenced area to get water there too because I like to shop and see something and you want it. I don't know that acquisitive acquisitive misses about exactly probably something that happened. In my free one year old Self Oh fall in love. Yeah no no I know I know I know I say I'm not going to buy anything either. But then a well and then somebody sends you something complaining that I don't sometimes. Sometimes we get something from a company or something and even though. I don't want that plan but as we said I can't kill it yeah You know I think the other thing is i. Want to continue to be more and more observant And I'm thinking of this. I think because I saw this article in the New York Times this past week about fireblight Moving north a a disease that especially affects Fruit trees like apples and so forth so is very dangerous in orchards has been mostly kept in the southern United States And with the shift in climate another one of these things that's out of control and moving To An resistant to Cabrera. Yes and so right because exactly so and also some of our modern varieties of apples that become ubiquitous have Less resistance apparently to it. Because it hasn't been a problem in the north and because of the way apples are grown in commercial orchards. Today today which is almost like didn't even look like trees. I mean there are these little. I don't even know what you would call them. I mean they WANNA get like fifty they plant them really close close and they pruned them really hard and they wanna get fifty apples off each one but the density of trees is so great compared to full-sized tree space. You know ten feet apart or twenty feet apart so the density works out to to their favor and it's easier to manage them as these again I I don't even it doesn't even look at true to me the way a lot all of them are grown anyway So my resolution my thing is that I have become more conscious more aware and taken more time when I see something thing that looks different to me. That looks odd an insect. I've never seen before disturbed disfigurement something on the surface of a leaf. Whatever I I am taking more time and I'm going to do even more of that to say? Hey what really is this. Take a camera phone picture or take a sample you know. Put it in a plastic bag. Whatever and when you have the time try it out or better yet? Send it to if it's really something that looks like it's bad That's having a detrimental effect on a plant Plant major plant you know. Send it to the pathology lab of my State University. You know of the cooperative extension or whatever but I want to be more conscious I WANNA learn. What do these things look like? Who Do you know what I mean? I mean sure. Yeah Yeah we're kind of a garden. Forensics yeah exactly exactly exactly and and and it's worth taking the time because sometimes these things Like with fire blatant apples if you have full sized trees if it just gets in at one branch you can remove and destroy that branch and you probably can keep it from getting into the vascular system of the whole tree. Not when it's been pruned in the commercial orchards. which to this weird little thing but it gets through the whole system too fast but but in the home if you have to apple trees you probably can save them and and so so? I just want to be more vigilant. That way We'll that's good advice. I think people should go away to garden. Because you're always writing about the next thing I I know there's so many things I don't want to dreary and down on so we have no this week like eighteen nineteen inches. Yeah aw all the user bent down I think I resolution is to go out and see what I can do. Yeah yeah I tend not to poke around until they spring back up themselves. You know I but we'll see it's warming up a little bit so we'll see if you know if there if it's really really really cold andbranch brittle I don't WanNa Really Bang around too much. I know I know that that's good advice but I still at least alleged. Look just like you're saying we should keep our eyes open and we should look for aberrations in anything else that might be odd and check out the way to garden and I love the when I visit your side. I learned something and I learned something about the other creatures in the garden besides the not just the plants plants. Yeah well speaking of that I think we have you know we have like one more minute of one thing. I'd like to say to everybody. As resolution speaking of things like climate change and the impact it's having and the new challenges is presenting for everyone on the planet including getting you know farmers and gardeners and so.
