In segment 2 Joey and Holly talk about The science of the compost pile

three main stages in the composting cycle in which different types of microorganisms thrive.

The first stage is typically only a couple of days long during which mesophilic microorganisms, or microorganisms that thrive in temperatures of about 68 to 113 degrees Fahrenheit (20 to 45 degrees Celsius), begin physically breaking down the biodegradable compounds. Heat is a natural byproduct of this initial process and temperatures quickly rise to over 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

Mesophilic microorganisms are replaced by thermophilic microorganisms (microorganisms that thrive in the increased temperatures) during the second stage, which can last from a few days to several months. The thermophilic microbes work to break down the organic materials into finer pieces. The higher temperatures are more conducive to breaking down proteins, fats and complex carbohydrates.

Also, during the second stage, temperatures continue to rise and if not closely watched, the compost pile can get so hot that it can eventually kill off all the helpful microorganisms. Techniques such as aeration and turning over the compost pile help keep temperatures below about 149 degrees F (65 degrees C), as well as provide additional oxygen and new sources for the thermophilic microorganisms to break down.

The third stage, which typically lasts for several months, begins when the thermophilic microorganisms use up the available supply of the compounds. At this stage, temperatures begin to drop enough for mesophilic microorganisms to resume control of the compost pile and finish breaking down the remaining organic matter into usable humus.

balance of "greens" and "browns" is needed to create the proper environment for composting to occur. Greens are nitrogen-rich, and include items such as grass clippings, fruit and vegetable waste, and coffee grounds. Browns are the carbon-rich yard clippings, such as dead leaves, branches and twigs.

A carbon-to-nitrogen ratio between 25 to 1 and 30 to 1 is ideal for rapid composting

There are two main classes of composting microorganisms, known as aerobes and anaerobes, according to Planet Natural.

The aerobes are bacteria that require oxygen levels of at least 5 percent to survive and are the most important and efficient composting microorganisms, according to the University of Illinois. The aerobes consume the organic waste and excrete chemicals such as nitrogen, phosphorus and magnesium, which are nutrients plants need to thrive.

Anaerobic microorganisms are bacteria that don't require oxygen. They also don't process the organic waste as efficiently as aerobic bacteria. Anaeorbs produce chemicals that are occasionally toxic to plants, and they cause composting piles to stink because they release hydrogen sulfide, which smells like rotten eggs.

About 80 to 90 percent of all microorganisms found in compost piles are bacteria, according to Cornell University. The remaining percentage of microorganisms are species of fungi, including molds and yeasts.

In segment 3 Joey and Holly talk with their guest it is Holly Baird talking about safe canning and how she started to can.


Many people think you have to learn canning from a young age, or grew up canning, etc, but not for you, how did you get into canning?
What are some important things to remember when canning?
Can I use any old recipe I have laying around?
What do you think is the easiest thing to can?
Home canned pickle tips?
Good resources?

In segment 4 Joey and Holly answer garden questions

Garden questions
1. I just noticed a few holes on my brussel sprout leaves that I need to take care of. I have a batch of fruit tree spray I mixed up earlier for my apple trees. Can i use fruit tree spray on their vegetables? The label says for apple and fruit trees and strawberries. Doesn't say anything about vegetables.
A:The safe answer is no you can not. The more detailed answer is what kind of spray did you use for the trees and is it just for fruit tree or does the label say it can be used for both?
2. What Advice for watering can you offer?
A: Water early or late in the day if you can fine mulch add that to the garden water twice
as much as you think you need as the soil will use it all up. If you get the leave wet there
is no issue with that.

3. Q: Jessi Do you think it's too late in the year to plant pole beans am in green bay. I forgot I bought them from mi gardener. ( love them!) Also, love your podcast. ?
A: Based on where you are at it maybe pushing it. Pole beans take 70-80 days to start producing
and will keep producing till frost. Bush beans take 40-60 days to start producing and will produce for
2 to 3 weeks.

4.Miranda asked : What about container gardens? Is there mycorrhizal fungi in our soil? Some of us live in a condominium and need to buy soil. I wonder if there's any life in the soil that we buy in bags. I love gardening.
A: Yes there is mycorrhizal and fungi in the compost/bagged soil that you buy if you by the soiless mix then no there is not.

5. Simmons wants to know: Can you propagate a yacon tuber to make a new plant?
A: No the only way you can propagate Yacons in by the rhizomes you can save them in the fall in sand in a cool place over winter we have videos on have to do that.

6. Q:Can you save corn pollen
A: yes you can there are several sets in do this those

7.Q: any suggestions on how to prepare radish seed pods? never knew you could eat em, i usually just collect the seeds, wanna try eating them. Thanks.
A: we harvest the pods when they are full and plump and green you can pick them when they are smaller. based on the soil moisture the pods can be crisp or they can have heat to them. some gardeners pickle them in the frig.

8. Should you trim your tomatoes and pole beans

In segment 4 Joey and Holly answer garden questions
1. Alan asks What are some ideas for getting rid of mugwort (artemisia spp.) without resorting to inorganic means?
A:Use organic weed killer as soon as it comes up like Bio safe. Same for weeding it out. Its best to eradicate it asap

2. Q Dear Wisconsin Vegetable Gardener,
: I saw one of your YouTube videos about saving onion/shallot seeds and I have a question about shallot seeds. I have a small bed where last year I planted about 20 shallot bulbs. This spring the shallots are doing great and i've left two plants go to seed. The flowers have formed this globe-like flower but if I open one of the flowers I don't see any black seeds. In each of the tiny flowers I see several tiny seeds. Also, some of those tiny flowers have opened up.
Those tiny, tiny seeds inside the flower, are those that I need to save? Should I wait a little longer before checking for the black seeds?
Evan from New york
A: yes the flowers will have seeds in them. You will need to wait till the plant dies the seeds need that time to develop that is where the black seed will be. The flower opening up is normal for the plant to grow the seed.

3 Q: Hi there I have a question about the slime mold (had to google it to name it)
It grew in yellow hard foam piles on the sides of my raised bed I left it alone & looks like it died but it continues to be so rainy that it popped up elsewhere.
Now I have mold on the stalks of radishes & beets beneath the greens. Is that affecting the veggies & do I have to pull & toss them?
Very intimidating in spite of Prof Google saying it’s harmless.
Thanks in advance!
-Teresa in Saint Francis

A: Thank you for the question
Correct it is not harmful to humans. Some cultures eat slime mold as well. As for it being on the stalks of your plants it is not hurting them at all. If it was to grow on the leaves then if can kill the plant. when on the ground it will appear and the disappear with in a few days. Also you can remove any much and weeds from around the plant to get to bare soil and to let more air and light get to it and dry it up. At the time of harvest just clean the edible parts with white vinegar and that will kill any spores that remain. If you want to kill it, Spray it well with 1 tablespoon of baking soda mixed with 1 gallon of water

4: Q No matter how hard I try Holly my peaches float in the jar. I pack tightly any suggestions?
A: Thank you for the question, Floating is normal no matter how tight you are able to pack items in a jar there will be some floating that happen. some reasons it happens are, Overripe fruit - the acid and pectin content is lower. Air can remain in the tissues of the fruit after processing.

In segment 2 Joey and Holly talk about how you can store food without canning

Think about what you are storing and how its sold in a store - freezer section?
Root crops store well in fridge, cool storage - leave dirt on them - mimic root cellar
Blanch and freeze many crops
If making stock/ soup-puree to freeze, think about how to store efficiently - freeze in blocks to stack, freeze flat, etc
Nestle potatoes in shredded paper in cardboard boxes with air holes
Consider vacuum sealing

In segment 1 Joey and Holly talk about Life Under the soil

There are more soil microorganisms in a teaspoon of healthy soil than there are people on the earth! Millions of species and billions of organisms

Soil Horizons (layers): Soil is made up of distinct horizontal layers; these layers are called horizons. They range from rich, organic upper layers (humus and topsoil) to underlying rocky layers ( subsoil, regolith and bedrock).

Soil Lives
Healthy soil is a living, dynamic substance! Soil is sand, silt, clay, air, water, minerals and organic matter crawling with earthworms, moles, grubs, centipedes, millipedes, snails, slugs, beetles, ants, fungi, insect larvae, bacteria, mushrooms and many other organisms. An average soil sample is 45% minerals, 25% water, 25% air and 5% organic matter. The soil’s texture comes from the different sizes of the rock and mineral particles. Sandy soils have larger particles. Silt is fine particles, and in clay soils, the particles are too fine to be distinguished with an ordinary microscope.

Of all the countless millions of organisms that live in an acre of soil, earthworms are perhaps the most significant group of larger organisms. Earthworms can range in number from a few hundred to more than a million per acre. They digest organic matter, recycle nutrients and can make the surface soil richer.

In segment 1 Joey and Holly talk about Life Under the soil

There are more soil microorganisms in a teaspoon of healthy soil than there are people on the earth! Millions of species and billions of organisms


Soil Horizons (layers): Soil is made up of distinct horizontal layers; these layers are called horizons. They range from rich, organic upper layers (humus and topsoil) to underlying rocky layers ( subsoil, regolith and bedrock).

Soil Lives
Healthy soil is a living, dynamic substance! Soil is sand, silt, clay, air, water, minerals and organic matter crawling with earthworms, moles, grubs, centipedes, millipedes, snails, slugs, beetles, ants, fungi, insect larvae, bacteria, mushrooms and many other organisms. An average soil sample is 45% minerals, 25% water, 25% air and 5% organic matter. The soil’s texture comes from the different sizes of the rock and mineral particles. Sandy soils have larger particles. Silt is fine particles, and in clay soils, the particles are too fine to be distinguished with an ordinary microscope.


Of all the countless millions of organisms that live in an acre of soil, earthworms are perhaps the most significant group of larger organisms. Earthworms can range in number from a few hundred to more than a million per acre. They digest organic matter, recycle nutrients and can make the surface soil richer.

In segment 2 Joey and Holly talk about how you can store food without canning

Think about what you are storing and how its sold in a store - freezer section?
Root crops store well in fridge, cool storage - leave dirt on them - mimic root cellar
Blanch and freeze many crops
If making stock/ soup-puree to freeze, think about how to store efficiently - freeze in blocks to stack, freeze flat, etc
Nestle potatoes in shredded paper in cardboard boxes with air holes
Consider vacuum sealing

In segment 3 Joey and Holly talk with their guest kevin espiritu

kevin espiritu is the founder of Epic Gardening https://www.epicgardening.com/. He founded it in 2013 to help the average person learn how to garden, grow your own food, troubleshoot common garden problems, grow in an urban setting and more. He does this through social media, youtube, podcasts, and his website.

We all get into gardening somehow - you started in a very urban setting - how did you get into gardening and what was your very first set up like?
What is the biggest challenge people face with urban gardening?
What are some good methods for getting rid of crab grass?
We have a dwarf lime tree we are reviving from an attack of scale - what is scale and what are some good ways to combat it?
What are you best ways to get rid of aphids?
How can we find our more about you?


In segment 4 Joey and Holly answer garden questions
1. Alan asks What are some ideas for getting rid of mugwort (artemisia spp.) without resorting to inorganic means?
A:Use organic weed killer as soon as it comes up like Bio safe. Same for weeding it out. Its best to eradicate it asap

2. Q Dear Wisconsin Vegetable Gardener,
: I saw one of your YouTube videos about saving onion/shallot seeds and I have a question about shallot seeds. I have a small bed where last year I planted about 20 shallot bulbs. This spring the shallots are doing great and i've left two plants go to seed. The flowers have formed this globe-like flower but if I open one of the flowers I don't see any black seeds. In each of the tiny flowers I see several tiny seeds. Also, some of those tiny flowers have opened up.
Those tiny, tiny seeds inside the flower, are those that I need to save? Should I wait a little longer before checking for the black seeds?
Evan from New york
A: yes the flowers will have seeds in them. You will need to wait till the plant dies the seeds need that time to develop that is where the black seed will be. The flower opening up is normal for the plant to grow the seed.

3 Q: Hi there I have a question about the slime mold (had to google it to name it)
It grew in yellow hard foam piles on the sides of my raised bed I left it alone & looks like it died but it continues to be so rainy that it popped up elsewhere.
Now I have mold on the stalks of radishes & beets beneath the greens. Is that affecting the veggies & do I have to pull & toss them?
Very intimidating in spite of Prof Google saying it’s harmless.
Thanks in advance!
-Teresa M. in Saint Francis

A: Thank you for the question
Correct it is not harmful to humans. Some cultures eat slime mold as well. As for it being on the stalks of your plants it is not hurting them at all. If it was to grow on the leaves then if can kill the plant. when on the ground it will appear and the disappear with in a few days. Also you can remove any much and weeds from around the plant to get to bare soil and to let more air and light get to it and dry it up. At the time of harvest just clean the edible parts with white vinegar and that will kill any spores that remain. If you want to kill it, Spray it well with 1 tablespoon of baking soda mixed with 1 gallon of water

4: Q No matter how hard I try Holly my peaches float in the jar. I pack tightly any suggestions?
A: Thank you for the question, Floating is normal no matter how tight you are able to pack items in a jar there will be some floating that happen. some reasons it happens are, Overripe fruit - the acid and pectin content is lower. Air can remain in the tissues of the fruit after processing.

In segment 4 Joey and Holly answers gardeners questions

1. Q: Mark wants to know will using blood meal help keep rabbits away
A: It the blood meal was to be keep dry it may work but once is it is wet it will not work best is to get a 2 foot high chicken wire fence or https://www.bobbex.com/product-category/rabbit-animal-repellent/

2.Q: suggestions on growing radishes. Great leaves nobulbs
A:If this was early on in the season early spring I would suggest it was a nutrient deficiency in the soil but as we have crossed Into Summer radishes are a cool season short day Cropper day light sensitive crop so as it's warm and the days are long the plant is going to go into a reproductive State not a bulb development State however. Allow the plants to go to seed the green pods are edible and taste just like the radish bulb so if you're unable to get the bulb you can at least get radish in the green pods before they mature

3.Q: is liquid pectin the same as powder pectin?

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.
