Episode 8: Radish Harvest


Tax day has now come and gone which for some may have caused a bit of a loss, but for vegetable gardeners it usually marks a time of gain. The Spring growing season is reaching it’s peak and the radish that were planted in mid-March are ready to come out. Harvesting the delicious and healthy radish is always something to look forward to. With the heavy Spring rains they are plump and ready to eat, the rain also softens the ground and helps make this a quick afternoon project. Take a look at our return.


Thanks again for watching,

Laurie and Mike.

Episode 7: Spring Weeding and Thinning


Weeding a vegetable garden is often the last thing a gardener would like to do. This is exactly what happens in this episode. Maybe not the most spellbinding story, yet weeding and thinning a vegetable garden is one of the best things a gardener can do to maximize the yield and health of the plants.  It does not have to take up too much time but really, time is what a garden marks. The radish and lettuce were planted just a few weeks ago and already we are counting the days until we can prepare a fresh salad.  Enjoy the time crawling among your plants — weeding or not.
