This is a recording of Dale & Carrie talking at the 2019 OKC Home + Outdoor Living Show about how they grow food for their family of 6 in their OKC backyard.
These cat-attracting plants are not only fun for your cats, but also can have many benefits. They can be used to make herbal tea or to simply flower in your garden to attract bees. Catnip is also a great plant to have around to use as companion plants to help deter bugs away from your vegetables.
Chives are are one of the easiest plants to grow, and we enjoy them so much! Not only do chives taste wonderful as an addition to many meals, but they also add a unique look to your backyard and container garden and can help with pest prevention.
Cilantro is one of our most commonly used herbs in the kitchen. If you let it go to seed, you can get a second herb from the same plant: coriander! Both versions of this plant will give your dish a tasty kick!
We grow a variety of different types of beans throughout the year. We pretty much are growing a version of peas and beans year round where we live!
September is a great time to start growing food! The heat should fade away by the end of the month and it’ll start being nice enough to be outdoors again.
Join us as we discuss our planting method for these cool season brassicas. We plant out our Big Bag Bed Smart Pot with cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, and kale.
When people think about gardening and growing food, they typically associate it with the spring and summer months. However, fall is actually a better time to grow food than spring for several reasons!
Dale and Carrie sat down to go through a list of questions that they had received this week. Topics discussed include organic pest control, beneficial critters, and how to grow your own food (specific plants discussed includes peppers, garlic, fruit trees & bushes, onions, squash).
July is one of your favorite months to grow food if you like salsa! Not only are the tomatoes and peppers starting to flourish, but we’ll also have more squash, beans, cucumbers, basil, and okra than we know what to do with! This is one of the many ways our app can come in handy!
