Uprooted, a Book by Page Dickey
"It begins with an Anton chekhov quote. it says I am in the condition of transplanted tree, which is hesitating whether to take root or begin to wither, and it looks like you took root page. So tell us a little bit sort of set the scene about this transition for us. Well. I. Think in the beginning and and certainly when when I didn't know whether I might with her it was it was very hard to leave. my old garden I'd been there for thirty four years. my husband join me for the last fourteen of and and it was. A place. Created over the years with just tremendous amount of love and passion and and to just walk away from that was was difficult But. After much searching and and lots of. Panic when we really couldn't find anything right away we decided to move to North Western Connecticut and we found a plot of land that took my breath away and. Because, it was full of fields and woods and wildland and a view. Of the Berkshire Hills and It started me on a new adventure and I think that's when. I realized I wasn't gonNA weather. We didn't have to irrigate. Don't worry. She's GonNa. Be. Okay. Oh how how did so so you had been at Duck Hill. For those thirty four years and so you came to start again in said, this piece of property was breathtaking. It took your breath away and. But How do you know where to begin because? Both of us, we were much younger gardeners much less experience crash when. When we began our where I still live around same time as when you went to kill and where in your your work at Duck Hill. So we were experimenting with different things We're at a different stage in our as I said in our experience. You know. Like what lessons? Where did you begin? How did you know what to do I when you got to this new place? Do you know what I mean like what what did you say? I've got to DOT DOT DOT? Yeah. Well, first of all, they were remnants. Of, a garden. As sort of cottage garden in the front of the House and and. And although it, it crossed my mind just wipe it all out I didn't and it was mostly just peonies and. So. I knew that I wanted to play with that and that would be my. Perennial Garden you might say or place perennials. and. Bulbs and a place we walk through every. Time. We go inside and out. So So it would. It would be a fun place to have that sort of a garden. But I realized. Almost. Immediately I didn't want a garden like I had Kale Duck Hill was Full of hedges and. And Boxwood topiary and. It was a series of rooms and it was very enclosed. And this new place where we lived was open to the sky and open to the fields and open to the view and I realized I didn't want. hedged. Garden anymore I wanted something that related to that wildness. So I I think I knew pretty much right away that I wanted a lot of natives in the in the in this. Little. Garden things like M. Sonia and Baptista and astor's and so on. And But then at the same time, I was thinking about what to do about this little garden. I was starting to explore. In the woods we I think we have about eleven acres of woods. And I got so excited about the woods, we have high rocky limestone dramatic woods on one side and low rich. Damp. Woods on the other side and I got so excited about. This wildland that all of a sudden. We were the stewarts of. that. I was almost torn. Half interested in creating a new garden. Half of me just wanting to start walks start pass in the woods and start cutting down the invasive. and. So that was a whole new world that excited me right from the beginning

"What happened over the weekend? Well, as you probably knew that tick Tock Circus has continued the latest drama surrounding what is actually in the Tiktok by dance Walmart Oracle deal that will see the creation of a US based company associated with Tiktok operations. Some issues that were in contention over the last couple of days included who retain control of the new based company. Would it go public and what was that a five billion dollar payout? All about well, luckily for US tech roaches read allows put together a piece that. is fantastic and goes over the core things. What I have done is steal from it the key important bits. So I'm going to read to you bits of Rita's post to catch you and I both up to where things are as this morning.

US source codes five billion in tax dollars by dance estimates that Tiktok will be a total of five billion in income tax and other tax dollars incurred in the US to the US Treasury in the coming years nonetheless, the final figure is contingent on tiktok quote actual performance and the US tax structure. The parent company said stressing that the tax money had nothing to do with the ongoing deal hot this. Appears to be this figure this five billion number to where the trump administration got. The idea that somehow dance was going to pay the US government five, billion dollars by dance vehemently disagrees, and now we're in bit of muddle.

"I came across this. Study last night this was great. You know some of these things are sort of informal. Much, check them out. And verify them the most searched. Outdoor DIY project in each day I found this map last night and it's up-to-date. This was a twenty nineteen, the most searched outdoor diy project in each state. Okay. So I'm going to name a state and you guys tell me what you think is the biggest outdoor projects there Utah. Utah that's where we got mountains. So And the most. And they the weather's just awesome. But then there's desert. All right I'm going to help you abandon a bench. Is The thing that people in Utah search diy making more than anything else is a bench. Now this is gets fun because you've got things like main. They like to get out and make a garden Louisiana. Louisiana. The only state in the country who likes to make sheds, they like to make sheds in their backyards. Unserious is what this thing is. DIY shed. But I'M GONNA I'm saving Mississippi obviously but I did want to mention this another one that you can mention California and Georgia their favorite thing to search outdoor diy project is growing grass. Boring thing on the planet. Count. You're right. That's a good point. It is California Georgia Roach. So but in Mississippi has this same favorite outdoor activity searched. As. Nevada can you guess what it is? And there are two very distinct things. It's a risk. It's not not a deck. Are. Extending route. No. Here, we go one of the one of the very few only states in the country we Mississippi Nevada and. I think I may have found one more a pool. We will make a diy pool out of anything. That's why you see the weird pictures of stuff online of people putting liners in the back of their trucks and putting water in it. Mississippians apparently search making. They like to make their own pools apparently what we do
Dan Hinkley on Making Windcliff Garden
"It. So Some of the you said, you know sort of throw things at the soil and see what sticks and so forth and what I one of the things. One of the many things I loved reading the book and having known you for a long time and a little bit about the old days and so forth. That even though others would characterize you as a famous Gardner and you know an expert, all these very high praise kind of things in the book you talk about yeah? Like I'm trying to see what's going to work and some stuff's going to die and you know you're very candid about the fact that this is experimental even at your face of second big garden being a plants men having you just said, you the people who owned the House before they used to have you come prune this particular maple. I. Think you have a Master's degree in your thesis or whatever was. The Genus Acer Maple or something. So you've got some training and experience, but you acknowledged that this is an ongoing learning experience and experiment. Yes. Oh you know I. Don't think any of US call ourselves. True gardeners can can say, Hey, we finally of mastered this I mean there are there are some people out there that really have you know perfected the art of growing maybe a genus or to that of plants that are more difficult to grow but I would think any of us that are honest. With ourselves know that. You know we're still gonNA plant and too closely. Ridiculous. It is to take four inch pot and actually plant it. You know eight feet from another four inch pot. It's like that's the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen in my life. Of course I'M GONNA plan that three feet apart and regret it. know in three years time. So I the these are the things that I continually struggle with. This this want of density of planting and. At the same time realizing that. I making a mistake in in the process of planting. Trying to you know force. Square. Peg round hole all of those things that we were doing his younger gardeners I I admit readily to doing again on a piece of property but I you know I think that ultimately you. You do this long enough and you begin to understand some of those. You know live principles of of what makes us successful gardening excuse me a successful garden work. And I think those are the things that I took with me in class and. You know continued to try to work within those. Principles to make a garden that satisfying to me.

Saving and Sowing Seed With Ken Druse
"GONNA have that with in the comments with the transcript of the show. So what the heck are you doing over there? Well. You know this this idea started because I when we talk, what am I doing? Oh Yeah I'm collecting aid of things that have ripening, which is this is the perfect time to keep your eye out for seeds especially of ornamental plants that you want to come back next year and I know you've got an abundance of Angelica goes. So those biennial, the plants that. They're so themselves right now or we can collect seeds and scattered them where we can collect seeds and start them indoors in the winter. But the time to catch those seeds before they drift away and You know like the JELICA I can't grow GIG US we've talked about that but I can grow Arc Anjelica and Atro- Perea you ever seen that one with purple stems so beautiful. And Paki carpet sorry he's talking Latin folks already we haven't even gotten. A bit Anjelica attr- appropriate is the purple stemmed Angelica, but I made that name up. so So yes and so some of those. Those Angelica are biennial Lsu, said, what are some of the other things when you look around that? You have in the garden that you would be targeting because you said you, you don't do well with that with the anjelica guess that I grow. That's kind of got those big wine colored. On bowls flowers at this time following that are followed a beautiful purplish green bud. The other ones do quite well for me and they're forming their basal rosettes kind of flat growth which next year just like a lettuce plant will bolt, they'll shoot up their flower spike sometimes with an Argon Jelica. Seven or eight feet tall got some moisture. Right, and and that's what you said when you said. Basal, Rosettes. One of the important things, and this is maybe we'll get to this later but. Know, how to recognize these babies because if they saw themselves or if you some of them outside, you don't WanNa destroyed accidentally later you know anyway. Yeah. So so sometimes takes a little homework looking things up and I always love when websites show or reference books show the seedling the babies as well as the grownup plant anyway. Okay. We'll get to that later we'll digital and. I don't have so much luck with. The Regular Fox glove that everybody loves for some reason I think this is all due to my sandy soil the one little more moisture. The other digital us like Vera Guinnea is that the one lend lend Tanai think is one and Ludia, which is this little plant plant's not that little bit of flowers. The Spike is covered with these creamy yellow little flowers, but it's covered with them and that's self sows or you can collect the seed or you can sprinkle the seed where you'd like it to grow and it's not a big thug just. Usually, one plant will drop a seed and or lots, and then you'll get one flanagan. I do so ver, bask them. I

Bulbs You Should Grow With Matt Mattus
"Before I placed my bulb order I called Matt Mattis author of mastering the art of flower gardening to see what he recommended. He's here today to showcase some of his favourite bulbs including the most lily leaf, beetle, resistant lilies, and also some of his favorite sources. So welcome Madam. So glad to talk to you today. Thank you. Margaret. I thrilled to be here. So before we get started Matt Should say we're going to have a book giveaway of your recent book with the transcript you're mastering the art of flower gardening. SO ON WAY TO GARDEN DOT COM people can enter to win the book and to just get started on the subject I kinda like to know if I'm not gonNA plan until October practically November why do I need to order bulbs now? That's a great question mark, and in fact, it's I think experienced gardeners are used to ordering bulbs now. I know when I was young and I'm a a Lifetime Gardener I. Wonder why I would get bald catalogs in. June. And July and older you get more you start to realize that type well, first of all time goes faster right. But also there are correct times to order bulbs and even though some bulbs like lilies the to be planted later. In October or November when they're delivered or shipped they need to be planted or I mean or early because they are. The, good ones sell out. and. Primarily, I'm talking about the specialty bulb growers I mean if you are in the Lily Society or a Lily Society or you exhibit lilies, you want the newest varieties. And there are three or four Louis nurseries in the United States. Canada that grow there on lillies in their own fields and breathe around and these are some of the newest and best crosses and hybrids available. And they'll in people know the good ones sell out early. So you order them early. So it's sort of like locking in your order early and then the third dug in. Late October and shipped in November I sometimes can barely get them in the ground before it freezes. You know, I think understating the Commercial Bob Trade helps that there's two ways to get lilies. You can order them from the Great Dutch Growers Eighth, Eighty percent of the world's Lisa grown in the Netherlands. But they're also grown globally. They're grown. You know that balance of the twenty percent a grown in Japan and France and Poland and Germany. So and in a lot of ground in the southern. Hemisphere New Zealand for the US market so they're grown offseason. So. Those are all great. There's no bad lily bowl but the there are extraordinary ones off it. You get a bigger bulb from a smaller nursery or a newer variety so those will sell out fast. Right and do you have a pet bird? Probably can hear the twenty heirloom Turkeys that just hatched in the kitchen here. Oh and there was no keeping them. So I apologize for the. I thought you had a pet canary or something that's hilarious. Okay. Good will say a lot of them. I. Apologize. Now it's so so the. And there are some things that are kind of perishable. Maybe we'll talk about those with some of the ones you recommend but. You WanNa get him really fresh so you don't want the last thing lying around for months either do you I mean Beth right? Yeah. Yeah. I'd be little Bob's in general or In Bulbs in general I'm including tubers and combs and Risa. GMS. But there are some that survived fine out of the ground for a while and there's some that don't I think we'll probably touch on that later but there's one thing I wanted to add that. This is this crazy twenty twenty year with Cova D- it's affecting the lily bulb industry especially the small growers I just received two e mails today from small growers at said, place your orders now because by September, we're probably going to shut down the site and switch over to spring twenty twenty, one orders. Okay you know because they're they're you know they don't buy from brokers the not buying for the big multiplying growers in the rest of the world out the basically have a field of Casablanca's when those are gone
Lawns Into Meadows With Owen Wormser
"The book begins by making the case for meadows versus lawns, which I've talked about on the show various times with other guests, Doug. Ptolemy, and so forth But give us sort of the scene setting quick pitch on why meadows versus lawns before we dig into your. Excessive how to Especially, you're sort of how meadow store carbon argument. Yes. So a lot of people know about how lonzo biological desserts 'cause a lot of environmental problems that something that you've covered in the past and meadows are really the opposite of that and they create this level of abundance and one of the ways in which they do that is that they actually build soil including large amounts of carbon. So Meadows are incredibly effective at drawing carbon dioxide like all plants breaking that down releasing the oxygen, taking that carbon and storing it in the ground and unlike trees which put a lot of carbon in their trunks, which eventually some of that is earned most of that's released back into the atmosphere. Meadow Plants Really Park Carbon in the soil in their roots can extend this fired as ten or fifteen feet into the ground. So they're really sort of carbon sequestering machines, and this is a way that you can sequester carbon in your yard and instead of contributing to global warming with mowing your lawn and using fossil fuels. You cannot meadow and Sin Carbon rate in in your on your property. Sounds. Like a very good thing to be doing at the moment. definitely but I hadn't really read so much about that part of the argument you know I'd read about the lack of diversity the monoculture the fact that we mow the lawn into submission so doesn't even produce flowers or seeds for insect benefit, blah, blah blah. So that was really really good point now. You Talk About Meadows and Meadow Gardens and you differentiate between the to explain what the two are. The differentiation that I make in the book is that meadows are planted from seed and meadow gardens were planted using live plants that are usually called plugs there basically baby plants that come into trey. So they're still native perennials, native mental meadow perennials, but they are planted into the ground and they establish faster than a meadow from seed however, because you're planting live plants usually only meadow gardens only effective for smaller areas and meadows from seed are generally a much more reasonable way to plant larger areas. Okay.

"Did we talk about your road runner on the first episode, we did together of the show I. Don't want why don't you tell us the story? Yes. Aside from chargers and burnt up Khuda. Johnny and a whole host of other MO- pars. Johnny has also had a really awesome dude. You're roadrunners bad, ass. Tell us about your road. I remember seeing the pictures of it for the first time and I'm like. Hey, you have too many cool cars that I want. So. Tell us about that. Awesome roadrunner. This is the ratty one right the blue. Absolutely that okay. Man That card if I could find that exact car right now, I'd be a very happy man but. Tell us tell us the whole story about the road. All right. So Up in the high desert, which is I think it's like Apple Valley area out here. Not You know not that you would know where this is but anyway, it's it's it's a little bit of a stretch to get there from where I lived but I think it was in the recycler craigslist or something? I'm not even sure craigslist was around back then but I found this seventy roadrunner right And it was pretty sketchy description and stuff and I call the guy and he's like ads. Pretty. Roach Dow. But it does run. It's a three car I'm like all right has tiktok tack in it unlike. Allen go check this thing out so I was just dating my wife back. Then you know so I I I cook stir into going for a drive. You know a road trip up to go check out this car. And get there and it's like this. Lavender primer color in somebody rattled canned stripe on the hood. Had the Bulge Hood. And but Iran. And I was like, Oh, by had, we'll flares in the back which I didn't And I think I think I paid. I want to say was like Fifteen hundred bucks to two thousand dollars somewhere in there. Drug at home. And then I didn't like the color. So I black primaried the whole thing and then I drove it around a little bit but I didn't have it long and then I was starting to chip out the crap and you know the flares and the wheel wells the hated it, and then it's like, oh. God. Why did I opened this up just nasty like they just they just got in there with like sheet metal cutters and just like peeled the medal up and then just mud it you know. Was Nasty and then the right rear corner that car. It had been hit and then so somebody cut a clip off of another car I'm thinking a four door. And like grafted it into the car, they did a terrible job of doing it. So I I was just like this way too much for me. I'm I'm not gonNA take on the project like this so I think it was probably the recycler. Anyway this guy from same area Apple Valley calls me up. He's a tow truck driver and he's like a he was yeah a I I know that car seen that car up here stopped trying to buy that car that guy wouldn't sell it for years and years, and he's like, how did you get a hold of it and I'm like it was in the recycler He's I can't believe I. missed it. You know. So anyways, he goes. Well, he didn't have eating the money, but he's like, would you be interested in a trade and I'm like I don't know like what do you got? You know he's listing off the one hundreds and you know some bodies like Darts and Whatever Who wants a dart when he can get chargers all the time for not? Exactly. Exactly. So unlike No not interested. He goes well, I got a I got a sixty nine road runner and I go. He goes with doesn't have drive train in it, but you know it's five blue and. I go. Sounds interesting. I'd be interested in that and he goes I. Go dude this car is rough. The seventy is rough 'cause. I've really like seventy seventies on my favorite. Described everything wrong with the car. I think it had three fifty five's in it but anyway, he's like well, can you come up and can I check out the car because I was really Skeptical that he would be interested in trading for it. Right so I, I, drive a met him. I went like three quarters of the way up there, and then he met me because he was working he was actually he showed up in a tow truck. We met like right off the freeway. You know he's checking out the car and he's like I want I'm interested and I'm like all right cool and he goes well. Come back up on the weekend and all I had was like a really sketchy picture. Of the Blue Road runner, the sixty nine.
Rejuvenation and Propagation With Ken Druse
"I called you the other day and I'm like Oh, it's a mess everything. So overgrown and I'm telling you about my call is that's taken the. Anna's hip in the Salvia swamped by the whatever and you're laughing at me and so. What's the time for can? Besides facelifts. But just just because you aren't having guests visit doesn't mean you let the whole thing go to pot. Or you're thoughts go to pot. He's GonNa Discipline Me I publicly out loud on the radio. You said, you're pinching things so they get kind of thicker but. You May. It may be time to cut stuff back I. Guess I'm I'm using a modest sounding verb but yeah, you're right some cutbacks will you I have these big balls you've been here and you know people who visited if seen them through like big low terra cotta bowls on the patio and other places they're kind of you know and I group smaller pots around them but they're they're sort of the big statement centerpiece things for my annuals usually and and you know. Not. Everything grows at the same rate and put it all in when it's small, you know little things from the garden center but then something's grow more lushly than others and so like the Coleus, for instance. 'cause you know. Yeah. When you're cutting those Coleus bag you you mentioned that you could route them in water. You can also in some situations, just stick them back in the same container if you've got space and then that'll get even more lush and full without hanging over and losing its Bottomley's and stuff. Because, when you when you pinch or break off that parent plant branch and you'll get more leaves on that one, and then you have these pieces that you can either sticking or route in water or I like to use per light. Okay. So containers with like a pot of per light. SMALLPO- of per light and. Moist in the per light Tampa down really hard that really seems to help, and then I drill a hole in the per like with a pencil and sticking my cutting and firm the per light back around the cut and again, and you want to remove a couple of bottom leaves of the cutting the cuttings about. Four to six nodes long. So it's depending on the type of plant. Three to five inches long and some some plant. Coleus. Might route and two to four weeks. Then you have a new plant with roots and you carefully pry it out of the per light or in the case of water, you want to move it when the roots are less than an inch and a half long and sometimes roots made him water have a little trouble adjusting to a lower oxygen or higher oxygen medium. But anyway, you can stick them back in the same container that you took them from or just what you need Margaret. Another container of Coleus definitely need that. That's absolutely what I need. 'cause I'm doing such a good job managing the ones that I have this year. But seriously it has been kind of an epicure in the sense of We all are realities are changed Completely you know our patterns of life are changed. I mean, I'm stating the obvious and and on top of that in our region and many other regions, there's been severe weather so we have had. I've had almost no rain until a hurricane in fact, I should ask you how did you do during the hurricane that was just a couple of days ago I had a couple of inches of rain. Outages Day or two but not. Terrible terrible like many areas nearby had much. No, you were praying for rain. Also, a lot of areas they're still places New Jersey that don't have electricity. We lost power for almost twenty four hours. But we had five and a half inches of rain, and then that's stopped and then the wind came in the wind was really a lot of wind but. Knock would not trees and I've got tree did trees here. So I thought Oh that's GonNa be something there was there was one stick about four and a half feet long from the ash tree that was stuck into the lawn straight up. It's always funny when that happens in a big storm when it's also like spear gets thrown and it yeah, it really lands like right as if someone. INSERTED. It with with force while someone did. Yeah. Now, I had a couple of inches of rain and ninety. I keep saying to myself is this whole year? The theme weatherwise has been it never rains, but it pours it won't rain for a month practically and then we get the torrential gully washers. It's almost no rain. Yeah. Half. An hour of tons of you know you think finally and then it turns out it's dry under the trees sometimes. And you got to listen to half an inch but I was thinking about what we were talking about just before if you make a new plant and you potter it up of Coleus or a sweet potato vine or Begonia. You can carry. You can try to carry that over in a very sunny window inside and by March that's probably not going to be a very pretty plant, but you can cut that back and it'll make new growth and then make cuttings of the new growth and you can save a lot of money because you can use that to fill your those cuttings to fill your containers.
Ecology Lessons from Mt. Auburn Cemetery
"Tell us about when Mount Auburn sort of formalized the idea of emphasizing places in urban wildlife refuge and set specific sustainability goals like what's that? When did that happen? Well. I would I would say even before I was here, there was certainly a focus on a at some degree of sustainability sustainable practices, but it wasn't. It really started ramping up and you know after I got here because of my own interests, many of the other staff at the time as well and we really felt it was time to do more focus spend more time focusing on and really do the right thing and. It gradually became more formalized Because I'm sorry term planning processes and and when are several years ago we did a strategic plan and one of the top level and strategic initiatives of the plan was to be a model of environmental stewardship. So it really that's when it really became Kinda Corp Institution wide. Horticulture Department. Because of in the. Area I. Mean you're this piece of ecological uniqueness I think I read and one description right? I mean it's it's an unusual place to have one hundred and seventy five acres. In the conditioner. Really. It's it's such an important more and more important these days because we're in surrounded by an urban environment and. Green Open greenspace. That's good for my life and people is that much more important than it used to be and recognized as being important so it's Yeah. We're really in a kind of a unique spot. So. Now as with Central Park in New York City and other such spaces like the birds for instance, and you have a lot of birds they are especially during migration periods at Mount Auburn. Birds knew all along. This was a great ecologically important spot. So tell us a little bit about the wildlife and who calls home and so forth. The I? Say forever third says. Stop Vice About Auburn but. On on the fly over the path of migrating birds, you know come and kind of fun you following the coastline. from Central America and up on up north. So we're right in that in that flyway in in recent years more, the more urbanization has happened the more. Here. We are at the birds fly over and all they say is one hundred, seventy, five acres of five thousand trees in the tree tops is fine over. So it really is an obvious place for them to. Stop and take arrest them get replenished with. Food on their way north we happen to be in you know in in an area zone that birds are migrating through anyway, and of course, there's also a lot of resident birds as well that. Take Up. Space, here. And I imagine that you have bird clubs and stuff worth that left to be there and looking at birds. Yes absolutely that's where we are quite popular destination for many. Many very clubs and Amasau of on society and other. Organizations that that that organized groups to bring here and then just as people. Flock here from as individuals especially in May and peak migrating season, but also throughout the year. So it's not just birds I know for instance, when you did your woodland, you did you've done a number of as part of the sort of overall Mandate of of greater stability and and being more of a wildlife refuge in in recent years that's intensified you've done a number of projects you restored with didn't chew I mean or your receive in restoring the woodland. Tell us a little bit of some of the sort of steps and what did you do? Did you kind of monitor populations and figure out who is there and what you needed to do to what's thought process that when you when you begin an and again, this is a historic place and a place that a lot of people have. attachment to. You know it's an emotional place. It's a treasured place so you can't just change everything right? You have limitation. Right. Glad. You mentioned that we still are very much a an active ongoing cemetery. Belt creating and selling in bear space and burying people all the time in addition to you know generations of people that have already been buried here. So yeah. So we have to keep that in mind while we continue to move forward
Margot Livesey: The Boy in the Field
"Today, I'm happy to report that my guest is Margot Lipsey her newest book is the boy in the field it's published by Harper. And it's said correctly that it's a cross between a mystery thriller and the coming of age novel but you mentioned the particular kind of thrower of locked room mystery. Tell us what locked room mystery as. Well I'm someone who doesn't reach many thrillers but my understanding of through mystery is that There is no possible solution at yet solution exists and certainly in my novels I think of people's brains locked rooms locked rooms were trying to get into or trying to get alcohol job. Yes snow when I've read that in the book I thought, yes, the brain is the ultimate locked room. But what about the heart? The Heart? Yes. Perhaps even more the heart because the heart has its reasons that reasons does not comprehend. So yeah, they're all know syllogisms for the heart. It's a beautiful book because what happens essentially Is. The three children. Find the Boy Wyoming. For. Own intensive purposes asleep or dead in a field. They're afraid because they see that his legs are bloody. and. The youngest of them Dunkin, a boy who's been adopted is sent out to the road to flag down someone to Cohen Ambulance. As it. Turns out. The boring is not dead although his consciousness is on the wane. And he says at least according to these three children one of three things coward or Cowry or CAL slip. And the way this book works is that each of the three children has an interpretation not just of what the boy says but of how the boy got there of what life in the family is like. The father is perhaps having an affair. The youngest adopted child is looking for his lost I mother who was Turkish. Essentially. You say. That the book. Is like a compass and ultimately, there are thirty two points on the compass and the character can be proceeding toward any of those thirty two points now isn't a novel and this isn't a long novel. This is approximately two hundred and fifty. Some pages isn't it hard to make an potter novel that takes you in so many directions. It was hard to plot the novel absolutely and. Kept to mine something cats were meant field roach one of her lectures about how Every. Member of the family is is struggling to get free is struggling to step into their own life as it were I'm same time still wants to be part of this peculiar organism, the family. Three children you know cup so must like cubism. That's very different points of view about what was happening around the volume, the field. And in their own lives and in their family. Experiencing the family differently. Well, it's kind of amazing because each. Option. HAS A counter option? So the daughter Zoe is in love with a man that man is in love with a woman who was living in Paris, that woman living in Paris is married and feels that her husband comes first. So the constant shifting of point of view and possibility is dazzling you can't as a reader. Put Down what is going to be presented to you next. King for that very complimentary remark. Well, I do think it's one of my I'm Mike core beliefs if you will that. Everybody has a secret has a secret sorrow if you will and. AM. Real takes quite a long time before that emerges even even in the closest friend and of course. We're also refined new Soros. We find new secrets and we surrender other Zimmer's ongoing flux of life.
Poisonous Plants with Michael Balick
"Last time we talked. On this show, I think we're talking about your book on so this is a little bit different. Yes Yeah well similar in different You know I think this. Also is a book that Gardner should have because. When you go into a nursery and to see a wonderful plant that you want to have in your garden. it might be toxic plan you know might be. A medicinal plant that's also tack. System is good. Think about especially. If you have children or you like to explore things by tasting them, it's good to know what's going to harm you. in the preface of the book I believe it is, it says plants produce many diverse chemicals that we have turned into important medications, however, since dose makes the poison, the same chemicals went delivered in large quantities are poisonous. So that's kind of what you're talking about is You know sometimes a little is okay and a lot. Not You've seen them. You've seen both sort of angles of plants in your career. Maybe toss a little bit about your background. You know you sort of seen plants as both friend and foe, so to speak so. Well, actually an example of that is the May apple probably growing all around you where you are up in the woods and. May Apple is a compound. is a compound that. Is used for as a cancer medicine for example and Topa side. but if the plants ingested, it can be toxic so. It's it's truly. And Good and evil. Yes! So as You live. Your career spent an ethnobotanist. Can you explain a little bit about that and sort of just the short version of what you've explored about plants? That's no ball news. The study of the relationship between plants, people and cultures it involves. A training and a lot of disciplines from sociology anthropology to. bite me and pharmacy. On so we're! We're a a sort of broad ranging skilled group of folks. I'm we also call it. The scientists survival because. What we've observed from indigenous living, and indigenous peoples who live with plants and study them is that they know a lot about how to how to feed themselves how to heal themselves how to make their own wellings live in so if no botany is the science of survival very important today.
Leaves First With Ken Druse
"So yes, oh, foliage so I, if not for the leaves and I have to say with as dry as it's been here, I. Don't know if you're as dry. It's a little tricky to keep all the big leafed things that are my particular obsession. Happy so. Leaves. What's your thing in foliage in Y, Y foliage? Maybe you should. Tell everybody why we're both leaf obsessed. There's so many reasons I'm. Leave obsessed because I love the way you put it in an email to me. I'm sixty percent son. At best so it's kind of a shady garden and some things. A lot of things flour in the shade, but. It's not the big showy flowers so I depend on the foliage and the foliage last three seasons flowers, sometimes flowers have leading. US maybe it'll flower. The longest two weeks would be incredible something flowering. There's so many things in the garden that flower for a day. They don't call them dailies for nothing you know. Yeah but I love the color and the texture and the form, and the mass of and putting it all together, having something, tall and skinny with dark green leaves and something, fat and round and bushy with lots of texture, and when I look at the garden, it's so incredibly colorful, and there's not a flower incite and I've got that for months right. Right so I don't know where we want. It began about time big boys. Voice I you know I don't even know. I. Suppose it began with a plant that maybe I wish I'd never started growing which was for sale at a local nursery. Several decades ago when I first started gardening here, Pettis, it's ex hybrid est it's not actually japonicus. It was sold to me as Japonicus, but it's petty site. It's a a Butterbur I guess it is from Asia. It's big, tall thick stems that hold up a very large, very very large leaf, a couple of feet, few feet across green. It's just green, but it looks very sound like something you'd find in the rainforest. Rainforest or something so very bold, almost tropical feeling and I brought home a pot of it a million years ago and put it in a spot in the backyard and It's a very aggressive plan. It turns out and again this is decades ago. Who knew whatever and so? I have to kind of trench around it or we'd around it to keep it from going sideways everywhere, but so I have this big circle. Circle of it in the backyard we love, and so I suppose that that was one and around the same time that got me addicted to the big leaves, and at the same time, a former botanic garden that's we used to be part of the new. York Botanical Garden the Kerry Arboretum. It was called at the time. The carry institute now of Ecosystem Studies, which is about forty minutes away from here but it. It was on I was weekend. Gardener and it was on the drive was I passed it on the way, and I saw the plant sale, one Friday and I stopped in, and they had two plants that were in their garden. astroboy ladies, which has very big leaves in the shade and Jersey. A-. A cousin of it also brought home pots of those, too. So I think that's where my craziness began bigger, the better. All My life knowing you. I thought that these were intentional things. That smart the way
"roach" Discussed on A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach
"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..

"roach" Discussed on A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach
"I don't know maybe that's why I ended up with them but right in the right in the very beginning. But I don't remember showy when you go to the garden center in Spring Winter Berry Holly doesn't look like the sexiest thing in the in store. Do you know what I mean. It's sure so bunch of twigs but I ended up planting maybe forty or fifty of them around the place and so now thankfully you know. I'm think I'm known to the birds of the area after thirty something years you know. It's like favourite pit. Stop or something and so those are real workhorse plants. Those do a really good job of feeding a lot of native animals. You know especially birds and the pollinators like them when they are flowering in the spring. So that was one thing I did right but then one thing I did and I'm going to put it in quotes okay wrong was that of course. I loved the variegated leaf for the purple leaf. Or The you know I liked that cultivar native our form Goldenberg. Yeah Yeah Yeah so so so all right so we've been thinking about this for a long time. But what are we GONNA do now like? Wh How are we making room like what what are some of your tactics and so forth? Will you know as I was talking about that woman bed? That isn't very big. But if you have a spot on your property you can make a little garden. How about that? We'll call it a garden where you have a bid and you try to find out what the plants are that would fit that site and are not only indigenous or certainly not just needed the US but local plants right and then try to acquire them responsibly. Go to a native plant sale from a local native Botanical Garden. Or something like that. Almost all of them have annual sales. Yes or take a trip sounds good and then you can make a bad. That's specifically that and add native plants in with your other plantings for grow so much flocks panicky. Lada and there. Some of them are species because they revert to species form. But you know if you're going you can grow flocks panicky lot is part of your flower border and that may be native native for me right. The tall locks the summertime. July kind of Garten Fox and they're wonderfully fragrant to now Cuba a couple of years ago that we were talking about machias center They do have an trials garden about native plants. And they trial alongside one another. You know hundreds of varieties I mean. It depends on how many are in case of a lot of different varieties of flocks. And they. I'll give a link in the transcript of this show we. They published a great report. It's available online and it tells you which ones are the most insect friendly of all the garden flags you know and it's amazing you know by making the flowers bigger which again breeders did select selecting for the larger flowers for garden appeal. Didn't necessarily make them better and in fact the one that's J. J. E. A. N. A. And I don I think it pronounced Gina but I don't know flocks Gina. Jay Has the smallest flowers are purplish Pale. Purple lavender colored and It's the most attractive by far to insects. Volunteers in the most effective for them getting fed. So it's interesting. It's sort of counterintuitive. You know smallest sometimes better. Disordered that plant from succeeds. Oh you did oh good well you did a good thing so so So Yours Mike. Let's make a list of some things to do. Never bring in in a potentially invasive plant right and the that can even be a native plant. There's a mini candidates. Here that is one of the worst we's ever had but it's a local plant and it's actually threatened in Massachusetts plant oaks local oaks. And you can tell why in the second and if you've got some good plants on your property leaves them. Yeah encourage them. So how's that for short list? That's a short list but in in terms of invasiveness US you know don't don't bring in any invasive plants and we're going to try to eliminate some of the ones. I mean I'm on a Lifetime War Against Oriental bittersweet for instance plant. I didn't but the birds planted every year again and again and again and again because it's everywhere around me And the edges of the woods and so forth but You know people may be don't know what are the invasive around them And it's it's great if you're buying if you're thinking of buying a plant also it's so great now and this is what the Internet is. Good for You know to do if you just put in the word invasive and the name of the plant that you're thinking of of ordering it will you will almost immediately get the result with state by state. What state's Department of Natural Resources have declared that plant invasive and I mean this was a big? Aha For me. I don't know how many years ago in the last ten years about double file vibe Burnham which was the most popular Burnin when we were all starting to buy Burnham's teen years ago it was it was the the one the gateway vibe Burnham and now what's the case it's in it's it's seated into the woodland's just like that oriented bittersweet it's invading the woodland's in many areas. So you'll see it on if you do is you know double file vibe. Burnham invasive if you search for those three words on Google you'll see what states have declared it an invasive so it's actually quite easy to check yourself before you make an investment especially in a plant that sets a lot of seed or fruit you know before you buy those farmers. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah Yeah I think the other thing to do is to you that we can add to the to do. List is look for spaces like look with a slightly more Sort of Stern. I look around your place for spaces like you talked about creating the guilt garden bad And I've said this before on the program but I'll say it again because it's been a lesson for me. I was mowing up to the fence. Line all the way around my places two point three acres and I have a lot of giant beds so it's not all along by any means but even though I have kind of a meadow in one area up the hill. I was mowing up to the fence. Line behind that meadow in to the sides of that over and I found that if I came in even say six or eight feet you know stopped mowing around that two point three Acre parameter came in six or eight more feet There was an opportunity for more plants than I can it? You know what I mean. I could have a whole giant number of native I- Burnham's and so forth you know lining that you know you can create these sort of edge bads right. These sort of borrowed edge areas might be up against a fence or the neighbors property or Or against a hedge You know where you can steal back some feat that right now you're just mowing it. And you could create a place for the winter very hollies or the you know the native shrubs and a simple native ground cover and that that can end up being less work totally totally as as I get older. When thing I'm doing here is planting deciduous shrubs native deciduous shrub along those very edges. Yes because It just you know some of them. Don't ever touch right right right so and obviously islands. I said mowing you know I. I'm cutting more sort of islands amoebic shaped islands. Not taking up the the lawn but seeing what happens if I don't know it anymore and I'm finding I'm getting these sort of Goldenrod. Astor little blue stem very grass meadow sort of islands. And I'm creating more of those. That's kind of fun too. It's like instant gardens And obviously depends on what you had there? If it was turfed pure turf grass you may not get what I just said. You may have to add plants you know. Yeah or do you think you're going to be a succession manager and let those areas turned into woods at the very top of the hill inside the fence at the which is L- edges outside my would be forest I have for two years now. This'll the third year stopped mowing to see what came up and speaking of the oaks which are the best plant of all Native Oak Oak Seedlings Native Witch Hazel Hamels Virginia seedlings Some of the maple leaf fiber which I think is. Burn Sarah Foley Him. and So I've been evaluating what the land wants to give me to know what I mean. What wants yeah and I mean. In some cases it's probably what a squirrel buried. Frankly but whatever you know what I mean. A nut or seed that someone varied but And so now you're three. I'm going to thin a little bit of these sap these little seedlings and imagine. Then what's going to grow at their feet sort of looking at what's coming up. There's some ferns happening and So it's interesting I'm again. I'm in a more rural area. So this wouldn't necessarily work in suburban Kentucky bluegrass expanse. You know you might not get so much diversity. But that's what I'm doing. I'm observing what I have. And then thinking of adding other things that would complimentary augment These islands that are that are being created So that's what I'm doing. I don't know it's my little experiment can sounds great. I heard I heard speaking of natives and non natives speaking of collectibles again. I hope I heard that From a little Birdie told me that you ordered a snowdrop a gallon from England. A single small noninvasive know about collectors. I bought one of the least expensive English Galapagos which are snow drops bloom now and it it it was about twelve pounds and the shipping was more than twelve twelve pounds in money. Not Twelve pounds in weight. And it's beautiful and I hate to tell you the name of it but it's calamitous trump's trump's why but it's beautiful and I didn't buy it because the name I bought it because he was in this list where some of them were one hundred and twenty five dollars lower one little bull one bulb so snowdrop super collectible thing. I can never tell you know. This sounds terrible. I can't tell the difference between them because you kind of have to crawl around on the ground to tell. I actually have a telescoping dental near you. Have a what a telescoping Dental Mirror night? I haven't used it. I think if I if I ever had a glances collection which is completely unrealistic because it caused much. I have this little dental mirror. It's on a telescoping wand that the clips in your pocket so you can look under the flour and see which one it is like without getting your stomach wit all right well. He's still collecting but he's also making room for more natives. That's Kendrew thank you can. I'm so glad to speak to you as always will compare somewhere notes soon..

"That's all can it's fall. Just what I was thinking I now. I know we should tell people it was we got. We've seen each other recently. In the sort of September made September period we've gotten to actually see each other in person we even did urgent garden in Questions Acapella out loud a lot alive yeah in front of audience so that was fine at State University of New York at Albany any at the New York State Writers Institute Book Fair and Buck Festival and yeah that was fun. Oh Marvelous. I was malls I. I don't even remember what anyone yeah asked us. You know what I mean. It goes in one ear and out the other. I'm like as nervous so people ask US stuff yeah. After a member yeah they did so bef- speaking of questions before we sort of talk about so what I promise the introduction about putting things and what we're doing our garden and so forth there was a fun question that I didn't know the answer you too but I could visualize what the person Leslie who wrote to me from I believe upstate New York said I tried googling this question Russian but I couldn't find an answer so I thought you were Ken might know what's the purpose of the upside down pots. F- like terra cotta lower pots on tops of stakes in the Garden Leslie wants to know and and in Great Britain I guess Yes. I said I wrote back to show me a picture of what you mean. Do you mean 'cause I could visualize it also and I thought I've seen that no. What was that so? What do you think I think it's so you don't put your yeah yeah so because is it is when you lean over you know you have these damn steaks all over the place in the garden and it is a little precarious you don't you don't look at them. You don't see that I can't believe I've never had that happened up and actually yeah I know I know I know. I think our stakes are too tall. Yeah so people may have seen this and it is also sort of fun almost ornamental looking and it made me when it first. She said I thought of our Europe old friend. Marcia Donahue and her garden in Burr is at Berkeley Berkeley California L. A. -fornia where she has all kinds of like she has a bottle tree or she did many years ago. When you took me there has had a bottle tree I think she has different things like hanging in woody woody plants and you know an artist's garden whimsical things but it's not that I don't think is it no and many many years ago when I had a greenhouse on the roof and Soho in New York City I would put wine quirks on poke him on the top of steak excel or make a little hole in them so if that happened then you only bruise you're right you'd run into a bigger thing and you also might see it a little bit more something. I saw want somebody had ping pong balls that they spray painted with fluorescent paint. Oh that's a good idea wasn't pretty but yes you can. You can get those styrofoam balls at the craft store. There's a whole another a hole in the market right another big business model that we should explore. We can make it rich. Get rich slow another one so leslie. We think it's for safety. The APP is also kind of whimsical and Quirky and fun but we think it's for safety. That's what we think so remember when we used to be able to get them pots. Do you remember little thumb pot they. They were so cute so cute. Yeah remember the last time I saw thump. Aso little miniature terra cotta pots like the size for your doll right right depending on the doll. You know what I mean like. They're a little smaller than shot glasses. I absolutely cute cute so sue back to the main lots of questions coming in about the mad stash as I said in the introduction so both you know the food mad stash. I don't know if you have you been doing any sort of putting up for you. Don't grow a lot of edibles. I don't think but you don't grow a lot of edibles. I do have some herbs and the casually dry summer jobs does that count. Yes absolutely and I was. GonNa say that that's one of the things is yes. You know why spend three dollars a bunch for herbs in the market in the winter when you can have some of your homegrown either as you say dried do this in the winter energised out on the counter or what are you doing. I hang them in where the coats are supposed to be and sometimes I'll take a metal coat hangers and tie them onto onto metal coathangers and then hang those on another hangar or something you know get whatever I can write rosemary things like that right. and I freeze a lot of things so I freeze I take the parsley leaflets. I spin them in the salad dryer. You know the the whole sprig of Parsley the stems stalks with multiple leaflets on spin spin them to wash them in salad dryer dry them off take off the leaflets stuff them into the bottoms of court freezer bags and roll that up real tight when it's about the diameter of a between a quarter and half dollar so like a role a log in the bottom roll it up and put rubber bands you know seal the bag and put runs around it and then anytime. I want some Parsley I cut off like medallion. You know a coin off the end of it so to speak and put it back in the bag. I freeze chopped op chives and little jars little freezer. Little half pint ball jars in the freezer. You know so I'll have chopped chives. Advice wanted for garnish on something. Make a Lotta pesto cubes of virtually any or you can make into that right. Even if you don't have perfect herb you can make it into a Pesto Cube but do label some people because all those green eyes cubes look the same. I can't believe you said that. Do you have a dehydrate her. I do and I've never used it ridable. I know it's like it's like pet rocks. Now I got I got all jazzed up. I want to make dried apple slices in in my older age. I've gotten into dried fruit somewhat in and dried food very expensive. Um You know and I thought oh I'll be you know so smart. I'll start making it because I have apples and and so I got the thing and guess what another get rich slow scheme or save money slow scheme is that if if you buy the dehydrate or and don't use it that's not a money saving device sounds like a garage sills but at any rate so I do a lot of freezing verbs herbs both some some of them with a little water to make a paste and freeze it as cubes and knock him out into bags or with oil or you can make a full on Pesto the traditional Pesto with all the ingredients and freeze resolve to but I do love that I just did trays of roast tomatoes to cut up hunks of tomatoes onion garlic and olive voile and roasts that in his until it's Kinda caramelized a little bit and put those in a freezer bags or containers and you can use that for making super sauce later and then of of course I made my tomato sauce for the freezer got a whole bunch of that put away and I'm whole tomatoes I freeze and tomato soup I made. Have you ever made tomato soup. I'm looking for the perfect recipe. I don't know if I have it yet but I did the one with the bread in it you know you roast the tomatoes again with like garlic onion you know and it's kind of thicken. Yummies you then toward the end as you blended up immersion blender you put in the you know bread and it it. It seems good but there's something missing and what I think is that most Kareem. I think that's one thing and I think the other thing is. I really think a lot of tomato tomato soups that we are used tasting have a lot more salt and also has some sugar in them sugar. Of course you know what I mean and I haven't done that so i. It doesn't take a lot of sugar. It just takes the ethnic Yup. Just changes the acid to brightness yeah. It's interesting so I it was an afterthought. I thought you know what Margaret don't. I don't guess you can do that. You can adjust when you unfreeze it too right. You know what I mean so I just thought Sorta let me think about it and you know drink. I use a little bit and then adjust so well our our dear from Louis Bauer grew all the vegetables I family in Pennsylvania for the family of fourteen and they had a pantry in their basement filled with jars as you can imagine giant Gallon Jar. Ah Yes of everything you can imagine pickles and Tomatoes Lau talk about sugar. His mother had so much sugar the tomato juice ooh do a dad dandelions wine. Wow but corn went in the freezer. Oh yeah yeah yeah that makes sense. It would be better in the freezer then pickled yeah really well pickled. Maybe but you know it just cook car canned. Corn Nasty used to have that yeah so what about putting up the garden so to speak I mean we're in the north both of us in the country. It's still quite hot and no urgency at all all but I looked on the long range forecast and I saw that in the first week of October in my area we're expected to have temperatures in the thirties. He's not necessarily a frost or freeze but temperatures in the thirty so have used or felt the trigger at all and started putting anything away I. I can't believe we're talking about this again. Every year. I know I promised myself September fifteenth everything will be inside yeah. Give or take the timber fifteen km September fifteenth when not everything is in yet. I I brought in the begun we've gone to. I know you've gotten colder but we went down onto forty one and then it was eighty seven. Yes so it's not really here. It is maybe now but it isn't here. He wasn't there yet. Yes yes yes. I yeah and that's what in again looking at like the ten day forecast and so forth for the overnights. I covered them on that night. When it was going into the low forties I I made with Carson crops and stuff I made like tents and and where I have the two groupings of houseplants righted Jason to the house in a very sheltered spot under an overhanging roof and so forth so you know it's kind of a micro-climate anyway anyway so but this coming in a matter of days they're coming in for goods so oh yeah Sunday and there I have a flight of stairs to that yeah hope one bit yeah so we had a question from Mike who read something that I'd written about I guess he'd found it through Google search or whatever on the blog years.
