I’ve been really impressed with these Smart Pots, but haven’t done a great job of keeping up with watering my containers. To fix that, I built a drip irrigation system and show how in this video!
I had a great opportunity to spend some time with Bill Farris at Prairie Wind Nursery in Norman, Oklahoma recently. I learned a lot about cooking herbs and native Oklahoma plants that do well in our extreme conditions and am excited to share what we learned! Bill has been specializing in Mediterranean herbs and native perennials for nearly 30 years and is full of great information.

Please feel free share with anyone you think might benefit from hearing this!

This simple process is how we make it so we always have green beans all year round. Items you will need: Large pan of boiling water Large bowl of ice water Green […]
I spent a few hours building a drip irrigation system for the children’s home garden (click here to read more about the children’s home garden project) the day before our Florida trip last month. Ironically, it rained most of the time and I wasn’t able to get a lot of video. I went back out there today to talk about the drip irrigation system and why I think it’s better than my PVC system I […]

Much like I was when I started, they’re often overwhelmed by all of the various information out there about how to grow food and have no idea where to start.
