Podcast #172 – Getting Started Growing Food

We had a delightful visit Monday evening (despite a cold, wintry rainstorm) with the Azalea Garden Club in Tallassee. We had put together for them a presentation on getting started growing food, so we thought you might be interested in it as well. This week’s program runs longer than usual and has lots of information on the essentials for growing food, good food choices for the new gardener (hint: tomatoes are not on the list), organic weed control and organic pest control. We finish with some advantages and disadvantages of using raised beds.

We urge you to view the slides as you listen. You’ll see several photos of the subjects we’re covering. The first slide is black, so you’ll need to click the advance button to see anything.
