Is Segment one Joey and Holly talk about Community Gardens 101

There are different types of community gardens - ornamental, community beautification project types, and allotment styles where you rent a portion commonly with raised beds

Reasons to join: meet people, maybe you dont have space to grow - rent, HOA, too much shade, often more convenient than growing in your own yard

Benefits
Preserves green spaces
Provides teaching opportunities for children
Brings neighbors from a wide variety of backgrounds together for a common cause
Reduces crime in the gardening neighborhood
Makes neighborhoods more beautiful
Is environmentally friendly
Reduces food budgets
Provides opportunities for immigrants to grow food that is unavailable locally
Provides food independence
Builds self esteem

Find a garden - through your neighbors, coworkers, local university extension, walking around your community, church, local harvest.org, american community garden association, meet up, garden center

Search now, join in early spring. Some gardens are abandoned midway through the season, you can seek out extra plots for less.

In segment 2 Joey and Holly talk about Getting the Most Out of Your Cooking Oil

Lots of cooking oil choices, some are for different heat levels, flavor, etc.

Think about smoke point - Smoke point refers to the temperature at which an oil starts to burn and smoke. When you cook with oil that's been heated past its smoke point, you do more than impart a burnt flavour to foods. Beneficial nutrients and phytochemicals found in many unrefined oils are destroyed when the oil is overheated. Overheating also creates harmful free radicals.

Avocado oil: Smoke point: 520 degrees F. Use for searing, frying, grilling, roasting, baking and salad dressings. High in heart-healthy monounsaturated fat (70 per cent).

Almond oil: Smoke point: 430 degrees F. Use for frying, grilling, roasting, baking and salad dressings. High in monounsaturated fat (70 per cent) and an excellent source of vitamin E (1 tablespoon provides 5.3 mg, one-third of a day’s worth), a potent antioxidant.

Butter: Smoke point: 350 degrees F. Use for sautéeing and baking.

Canola oil: Smoke point: 400 degrees F (refined). Use for sautéeing, pan-frying and baking. A good source of monounsaturated fat (61 per cent) and high in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acid. One tablespoon delivers 1.3 g; women require 1.1 g ALA per day; men need 1.6 g.
Coconut oil: Smoke point: 350 degrees F. Use for sautéeing and baking. It’s high in saturated fat (86 per cent). The saturated fat in coconut oil raises LDL (bad) blood cholesterol, but not nearly to the same extent as butter. Coconut oil also seems to raise HDL (good) cholesterol.

Extra virgin olive oil: Smoke point: 410 degrees F. Use for sautéeing and frying over medium-high heat, and salad dressings. A good source of vitamin E and antioxidants called polyphenols.

Flax oil: Smoke point: 225 degrees F. Use for salad dressings, smoothies and drizzling over cooked foods. Excellent source of the omega-3 fatty acid ALA (one tablespoon provides 7.2 g, more than four days’ worth).

Grapeseed oil: Smoke point: 400 degrees F. Use for sautéeing, frying, baking and salad dressings. A good source of vitamin E, serving up 4 mg per tablespoon, 25 per cent of an adult’s daily requirement.

Light olive oil: Smoke point: 468 degrees F. Use for all-purpose cooking and baking (due to its neutral taste).

Peanut oil: Smoke point: 450 degrees F (refined). Use for searing, deep-frying, pan-frying, sautéeing, roasting, grilling, baking and salad dressings (mild flavour). A good source of monounsaturated fat (46 per cent).

Safflower oil: Smoke point: 450 degrees F. Use for searing, deep-frying, pan-frying, sautéeing, roasting, grilling, baking and salad dressings (mild flavour). An excellent source of vitamin E (one tablespoon supplies 30 per cent of a day’s requirement).

Sunflower oil: Smoke point: 440 degrees F (refined). Use for deep-frying, pan-frying, sautéing, roasting, grilling, baking and salad dressings (mild flavour). High in vitamin E, delivering 5.6 mg per tablespoon.

Walnut oil: Smoke point: 320 degrees F (unrefined). Use for salad dressings and drizzling over foods after cooking. A good source of the omega-3 fatty acid ALA; one tablespoon delivers 1.4g.

In segment 3 and 4 Joey and Holly answer Garden questions.

Garden questions

1. My pear trees make very juicy but alittle on the tart side which we all love. I pick them before they fall. I would like to juice and store them with their tart yet sweet flavor intact. Any advice would be appreciated!

As long as you dont add sugar to the juice, the flavor should stay.

2. How do best propagate blackberries?
Take trimmings, either put them directly in a soil free mix, or put the cuttings in water and once they form good roots you can plant them in soil
A: Blackberries can be propagated through leafy stem cuttings as well as root cuttings. If you want to propagate lots of plants, leafy stem cuttings are probably the best way to go. This is usually accomplished while the cane is still firm and succulent. You’ll want to take about 4-6 inches of the cane stems. These should be placed in a moist peat/sand mix, sticking them in a couple inches deep. Note: Rooting hormone can be used but is not necessary. Mist well and put them in a shady location. Within three to four weeks, roots should begin to develop.

3. What should I be doing this fall to prepare an area for a garden next spring? We bought a house that doesn't have an existing garden, but a large yard with great sunshine. Should we break ground now or in the spring? Its lovely black dirt, but should we buy soil to mix in? It's just grass lawn growing currently.

4.susan writes in and wants to know I am looking for a good fertilizer to put in my garden beds over the winter so that the fertilizer just seeps into the ground on its own and then next spring I can mix things up if need be. My beds are 2 feet wide by 6 feet long by 1 1/2 feet deep. Thank you for your help
A:

5. Question about protecting tomatoes searched your web site but didn’t find anything.
I saw tomatoes in mesh bags at a botanical garden. No one around to ask why or if this would keep the chipmunks away from the fruit. I hate finding bites in ripening tomatoes
Also if this does work does color of the mesh make a difference? I have organize colored mesh bags from golf course Thanks Rosemary
A:Thats to prevent cross pollination. It wouldn't stop chipmunks

6. Hi TWVG! Re: Recycling. For pizza boxes- tear off areas that ARE dry (lid/sides) and recycle them. Please don't toss the whole box! Also, we're encouraged to recycle styrofoam and bottles w/ caps on in my city. Everyone should check their local rules to maximize recycling. ty

Q. What should I be doing this fall to prepare an area for a garden next spring? We bought a house that doesn't have an existing garden, but a large yard with great sunshine. Should we break ground now or in the spring? Its lovely black dirt, but should we buy soil to mix in? It's just grass lawn growing currently.

A:You can dig it up now, if you are concerned about possible toxic soil it'd be good to get a soil test. You could also wait til spring, IF you turn it over now you can rake leaves and pile them on top of the area and as the leaves break down they will feed your soil. Your soil sound fairly rich in nutrients, but a soil test would be more telling. Aside from the soil test then you can dig it up now, pile leaves on top, and then you'll be ready to go in the spring or in the spring you can turn the soil over then too.
8. Q. I am looking for a good fertilizer to put in my garden beds over the winter so that the fertilizer just seeps into the ground on its own and then next spring I can mix things up if need be.

A: Most fertilizers break down in 6 to 8 weeks, even slow release ones
9. Q. Best way to cure and store potatoes for long term storage
A: lay them out in a cool, dim room covered with a cloth or towels to block out sunlight. During this time the skins will dry, small wounds will heal over, and new layers of skin will form where the outer layer peeled or rubbed off. Thin-skinned potatoes cure faster than those with thick skins, which may benefit from a few more days of curing time.
B:Store them in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight
10. Q. How to store green beans in the freezer properly?
A: Blanche and freeze in portions
11. This is my very first year gardening ever, I bought seeds from MIGardener, but I have some seeds in packets left - can I grow them next year?
A: Yes, less of a germination rate but still very good
12. Ive got some dead areas of lawn, I heard seeding your lawn in the fall is the best thing, how do I go about doing that?
A:As a general rule, plant cool-season grass seed at least 45 days before the estimated date of your first fall frost, before soil and air temperatures drop to less favorable levels. Your grasses will enjoy a full fall season, plus a second cool, growing season come spring. Your local county extension agent can help with advice on average frost dates and optimal timing for seeding lawns in your area.
B: Otherwise plant in spring but as soon as ground can be worked.
13. Best time to plant fruit trees?
A: Ideal is late winter/early spring, or plant in fall

Garden questions
How can i keep raccoons away from porch they is nothing there to eat they come on the porch and do their business there any suggestions
A: put a couple a plates of standard moth balls

2. It's September 1 and I just severed a major vine feeding the only two pumpkins I have. I had lots of dead and dying leaves (growing a plant in a large container on my deck). Just fertilized the other day, and seems to be doing better. But now I'm scared my little pumpkins might dye. I just stuck the end of the vine back into the soil. Hoping it develops roots so the fruit will continue to grow. I have several blossoms on other vines, but wonder if they even turn into baby pumpkins, will they mature before the frost? I'm guessing 60 days or so isn't enough. so I need to see what I can do for the ones I got.
A:Sadly your small pumpkins will most likely not grow and because it was a major vine you may lose the plant. There are if on the ground feeder roots the attach to the ground to help the plant
3. Wild grapes
4. How do I know when my Sweet corn is ready to harvest.

5.I recently canned salsa. The recipe was an approved water bath recipe which I pressure canned instead of water bathing for the time mentioned in the recipe. I canned in pint jars. I was really given a hard time by an acquaintance telling me it was not safe. Is this true. I canned in pint jars, 10psi, 25 minutes.
A: This is fine. You shouldve processed them a few minutes less, but they are ok .

In segment 1 Joey and Holly talk about 7 things that can not be recycled
Take-Out Food Containers
While your late-night pizza or Chinese takeout may come in cardboard containers, these types of boxes cannot be recycled. Any grease or food particles that may be present can potentially damage and/or contaminate the other materials that are to be recycled
Plastic Grocery Bags
Many people think that if something is made out of plastic, it can be recycled but this does not apply to plastic bags, since they have a tendency to get caught in recycling machinery and potentially damage the equipment. If you're interested in recycling plastic bags, check to see if your local grocery store will accept your old plastic bags for reuse.
Plastic Bottle Caps
If you recycle plastic bottles, such as water or soda bottles, detergent bottles or other containers with a hard plastic twist-off or flip-top cap, be sure to remove them before tossing them in the recycling bin. These types of caps are typically made from polypropylene, or plastic #5, and can't be recycled..
Styrofoam
Styrofoam, or expanded polystyrene, of any kind cannot be recycled. This includes packing peanuts used in moving boxes, styrofoam coffee cups or food containers, coolers, etc. Styrofoam can neither be recycled nor does it biodegrade and you should be careful to limit your use of these types of products
Certain Paper Products
There are certain types of paper products that can't be recycled, either because of issues related to contamination or issues related to their composition. Napkins, paper towels and tissue are generally considered too contaminated to recycle Paper that is laminated or has a plastic coating, such as a frozen food box, cannot be recycled because the coating prevents the fibers from being broken down properly during the recycling process
Certain Types of Glass
Glassware and ceramics are designed with a higher melting point than other types of glass and cannot be recycled Pyrex baking dishes, lightbulbs, fluorescent lighting, window glass, mirrors, plate glass, eyeglasses and glass art should also be left out of the recycling bin
Shredded Paper
Shredded paper represents a problem for recycling plants because of the difficulty involved in sorting the recyclable paper from the nonrecyclable material. Shredded paper can also potentially clog up the machinery and can be difficult to handle. Consider sending your shredded paper to the compost pile instead

In segment 1 Joey and Holly talk about 7 things that can not be recycled
Take-Out Food Containers
While your late-night pizza or Chinese takeout may come in cardboard containers, these types of boxes cannot be recycled. Any grease or food particles that may be present can potentially damage and/or contaminate the other materials that are to be recycled
Plastic Grocery Bags
Many people think that if something is made out of plastic, it can be recycled but this does not apply to plastic bags, since they have a tendency to get caught in recycling machinery and potentially damage the equipment. If you're interested in recycling plastic bags, check to see if your local grocery store will accept your old plastic bags for reuse.
Plastic Bottle Caps
If you recycle plastic bottles, such as water or soda bottles, detergent bottles or other containers with a hard plastic twist-off or flip-top cap, be sure to remove them before tossing them in the recycling bin. These types of caps are typically made from polypropylene, or plastic #5, and can't be recycled..
Styrofoam
Styrofoam, or expanded polystyrene, of any kind cannot be recycled. This includes packing peanuts used in moving boxes, styrofoam coffee cups or food containers, coolers, etc. Styrofoam can neither be recycled nor does it biodegrade and you should be careful to limit your use of these types of products
Certain Paper Products
There are certain types of paper products that can't be recycled, either because of issues related to contamination or issues related to their composition. Napkins, paper towels and tissue are generally considered too contaminated to recycle Paper that is laminated or has a plastic coating, such as a frozen food box, cannot be recycled because the coating prevents the fibers from being broken down properly during the recycling process
Certain Types of Glass
Glassware and ceramics are designed with a higher melting point than other types of glass and cannot be recycled Pyrex baking dishes, lightbulbs, fluorescent lighting, window glass, mirrors, plate glass, eyeglasses and glass art should also be left out of the recycling bin
Shredded Paper
Shredded paper represents a problem for recycling plants because of the difficulty involved in sorting the recyclable paper from the nonrecyclable material. Shredded paper can also potentially clog up the machinery and can be difficult to handle. Consider sending your shredded paper to the compost pile instead

In segment 2 Joey and Holly talk about what you can do with tomatoes in the kitchen

Cooking with tomatoes
Tomato butter pasta with mushrooms
Gazpacho
Pico de gallo
Add fresh tomatoes to any dish
Bean, cheese, pasta tomato casserole

Garden questions
How can i keep raccoons away from porch they is nothing there to eat they come on the porch and do their business there any suggestions
A: put a couple a plates of standard moth balls

2. It's September 1 and I just severed a major vine feeding the only two pumpkins I have. I had lots of dead and dying leaves (growing a plant in a large container on my deck). Just fertilized the other day, and seems to be doing better. But now I'm scared my little pumpkins might dye. I just stuck the end of the vine back into the soil. Hoping it develops roots so the fruit will continue to grow. I have several blossoms on other vines, but wonder if they even turn into baby pumpkins, will they mature before the frost? I'm guessing 60 days or so isn't enough. so I need to see what I can do for the ones I got.
A:Sadly your small pumpkins will most likely not grow and because it was a major vine you may lose the plant. There are if on the ground feeder roots the attach to the ground to help the plant
3. Wild grapes
4. How do I know when my Sweet corn is ready to harvest.

5.I recently canned salsa. The recipe was an approved water bath recipe which I pressure canned instead of water bathing for the time mentioned in the recipe. I canned in pint jars. I was really given a hard time by an acquaintance telling me it was not safe. Is this true. I canned in pint jars, 10psi, 25 minutes.
A: This is fine. You shouldve processed them a few minutes less, but they are ok .

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
