Podcast #237 – It’s Not Too Late To Plant That Garden

The two of us had a nice visit Tuesday night of this week with the patrons of the Wetumpka Public Library. We talked about what you can still plant in a vegetable garden in central Alabama.


This podcast gives you the benefit of that presentation more or less in its entirety, which explains why it runs so long.

We cover the essentials for growing food, the best vegetables to plant now, organic weed control, organic pest control, and the advantages and disadvantages of using raised beds.
