In segment four Joey and Holly answer gardeners questions

Q Last year i had pears that had brown scab like areas on them what might that be and how or what do i do to fix it
A: Apple Scab and Pear Scab
Apple scab Venturia inaequalis, and the closely-related pear scab Venturia pyrina, are major fungal diseases affecting tree fruit crops.
Scab is spread by airborne spores causing dark green, velvety spots on leaves and dark, scabby blotches and cracks on the fruit. The lesions affect the appearance of the fruit and seriously reduce the crop’s commercial value. In addition, the cracks leave the fruit prone to rotting which affects the storage capability. On young shoots the cracking can also provide entry points for canker.
Control is via fungicides such as Captan-based products which may need to be applied as often as 15 times each season.

How to Treat Pear Scab Naturally Controlling pear scab without chemicals takes some vigilance. Since the inoculum lives in the diseased plant material, cleaning up dropped leaves in fall can help prevent the spread. Removing infected plant materials can also have some benefit. The fruit is often widely infected in storage. Be very careful during harvest to sequester any fruit that exhibits even the tiniest lesion. If even one gets into a storage crate, the rest of the harvest could get infected. Sanitation and good hygienic practices are the only offerings for pear scab control without spraying. Controlling Pear Scab with Sprays Fungicide sprays need to be applied 2 to 5 times during the season, depending upon where the tree is growing. The most important spray is done just as the flowers become pink. This is usually followed every 10 to 14 days by successive spraying to eradicate all the spores. Lime sulfur sprays applied at the delayed dormant season (usually around February to the middle of March) can help prevent spores from activating. A combination of chemical and natural methods is the best method of controlling pear scab in regions with warm, wet weather during flowering and fruiting.
Just peel and eat unless the infection gets so bad that the fruit cracks or becomes misshapen and secondary rot organisms destroy it.
Q. Why are my zucchini flowers not opening ?
A: i t can be a sign of stress. Sometimes it happens when you have a squash vine borer, the plants can be too close together. ... They are huge plants and need space. If they are closed still, they are not yet mature
Q what do you do with the soil afterwards you harvest your crops in your grow bag
A: What we do is fill the bag half full with the soil that was used to grow that drop and then top the bag off with new compost
Q Can i freeze seeds to keep them longer?
A:Freezing seeds does not harm them, and can greatly extend their lifespan if done properly. All seed banks freeze their seeds intended for long term storage! Humidity is a greater concern with freezing, as a blast of warm humid air on frozen seeds can damage them
Q: Just bought a house; Rush City, MN. I am working with gardens and adjusting certain plants. There is an amazing mess of Asparagus!!! However it's insanely over grown and in a location that it needs to be moved. I understand a pitch fork is needed but does it need to wait til fall? And not sure where I can move it to, partially shaded?
A: Asparagus like full sun best partial shade 6 hour or so of sun it will do fine yes wait till fall after is has died back

In segment three Joey and Holly welcome their guest Karn Chapman of https://lejardinetdesigns.com/

Karen Chapman of Le Jardinet is a lifelong gardener. She is also an author, speaker, landscape designer, instructor, and writer. She has contributed to a number of gardening publications. As a horticulturist she helps others solve many of their garden problems.
1. Say someone just moved into a new home or wants to change their landscape design, why would it be wise to hire a landscape designer vs just looking online for ideas?
2. Your book Deer Resistant Design is very helpful. What is deer resistant design? What is it not? What is a great tip from your book you wish to share?
3. When many people choose a focal point for a landscape design they choose to plant a tree or shrub, why is this often not the best idea and whats a better alternative?
4. When someone wants to grow an ornamental container garden, do they choose the containers or plants first? Is there a preferred method over the other? What should they consider when choosing a container?
5. Many of us are spending more time at home and realize maybe we need a foliage screen of perhaps a neighbor, and a fence isnt desired. What can be planted in most parts of the country now vs spring to help develop into a different view?
6. How can we find out more about you?

In segment four Joey and Holly answer gardeners questions
Q Is there an organic method to keep cabbage worms off my kale and cabbage other than plucking them off every day? .
A: Apply Diatomaceous Earth
Get some food-grade diatomaceous earth and sprinkle it on plants where cabbage worms are
spotted. The diatomaceous earth powder will kill cabbage worms by piercing their bodies.
Set up a Netting Barrier
Cabbage moths and butterflies may lay eggs a couple of times during the year. During these times, you should set up row barriers or netting barriers across your garden to prevent the adults from laying their eggs. No eggs, no cabbage worm problems.
Dust Leaves with Cornmeal
You could kill the cabbage worms by dusting the affected plants with cornmeal. The caterpillars with eat the cornmeal, swell up, and eventually die. Original all-purpose flour may also work.
Apply Companion Planting
Grow pest-repelling plants (e.g. thyme, mint) next to your susceptible plants. This could discourage the adult butterflies and moths from laying eggs on your valuable garden crop.
Make a Natural Repellent Spray
There are a number of natural ingredients, such as garlic and cayenne pepper, that may deter cabbage worms. Blend these ingredients with water to create the repellent then use a spray to apply it on the undersides of leaves.
Introduce Beneficial Insects
A sustainable approach to getting rid of cabbage worms is by introducing natural predators to the garden. This may include spiders, praying mantis, and ground beetles. In addition to these insects, you may also want to attract other natural predators such as birds and geckos.


Q: my cucumber plants do not look healthy. The leaves have yellow spots on them. I am not noticing any pest on the plant. Again, anything I should be looking for as a cause/cure?
A: You plants have a fungal and bacterial this can happen but in your pictures I do not see yellow or shrivel on the leaves that would be a fungal infection

On your cucumbers you have Anthracnose this is a fungus that is most prevalent in wet and warm conditions. It can overwinter in fallen vines, leaves, and other plant debris, releasing spores in the spring to infect new plants. The spores (conidia) need moisture and mild temperatures to germinate.
the first thing you can do is remove up to 25% of the leaves on the plant just remove the infected leaves and throw them in the trash this will mostly be the lower leaves on the plant

Chlorothalonil (Bravo) and benomyl (Benlate) are popular fungicides used to treat anthracnose these are the active ingredients benomyl is a possible carcinogen. Chlorothalonil is a broad-spectrum agricultural fungicide that is often applied to crops in bloom when honeybees are present for pollination because it is currently deemed safe to bees
If a large part of your plant is infected, you may need to remove the entire plant and start over with sanitized soil in a different part of the garden I would trime the affected leaves off the plant

Q: I have hole being eaten in my bok choy what is doing this and how to I stop it

A: That is caused by the Flea Beetle. No, they aren’t really fleas, and they only bite plants, not people. Try this homemade spray to control flea beetles: 2 cups rubbing alcohol, 5 cups water, and 1 tablespoon liquid soap. Test out the mixture on a leaf of the plant, let it sit overnight, then spray the rest of the plant if you don’t notice any adverse effects. Spray the mixture on the foliage of garden plants that are susceptible to these pests.
Dusting your plants with plain talcum powder repels flea beetles on tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and other plants.
Use white sticky traps to capture flea beetles as they jump.
Insecticides may be used early in the season, but are generally unnecessary in the control of flea beetles on adult plants. Be extra diligent if your soil has history of bacterial diseases. Please contact your local nursery or cooperative extension for further advice.

In segment two Joey and Holly go over lesser known facts about landfills
There are fewer landfills today. In the 1980s, the United States was home to more than 7,600 dumps but that number was slashed by more than 75 percent – to 1,908 – by 2009. That’s partly because the average landfill grew substantially (approx. 4x) in size.
It doesn’t mean we’re producing less waste. Trash production has actually tripled in the U.S. since 1960! And, contrary to popular belief, much of this waste isn’t decomposing quickly, if at all. Landfill excavators have found 40-year-old newspapers with print that’s still completely legible.
We have room to grow, but at what price? Nine out of America’s 10 largest landfills will reach maximum capacity in less than 50 years. Is there room for new sites? Sure, though laws restricting the location of landfills means a longer haul for trash and increased emissions from trucking.
Landfills can find new life. Once a landfill reaches capacity, it can be capped and the area repurposed into nature preserves, golf courses, resorts and more. But, that doesn’t change the fact that we’re sometimes just tossing away otherwise valuable materials – like yard clippings, food and other organic waste – which could be turned into renewable energy through anaerobic digestion.
Landfills burn methane gas. A byproduct of trash in landfills is methane gas, which is vented or burned off via embedded pipes and released into the atmosphere. These harmful emissions are damaging the environment. Methane that comes from biomass can actually be turned into a power source!
Here are a few reasons why we shouldn’t toss food into landfills.

It increases greenhouse gas emissions. More food reaches landfills than any other single material in municipal solid waste. Food is a significant source of methane gas, which has 21x the global warming potential of CO2! If we diverted food waste from landfills, it would be like removing 2 million cars from the road.

It’s a waste of resources. Nothing ever decomposes completely when it’s buried in the ground, not even organic waste like food scraps. It just sits there untreated and creates loads of nasty fumes. Instead, we could be turning organic waste into clean, renewable energy through anaerobic digestion.

It’s a waste of money. Ten percent of the total U.S. energy budget goes toward food production and we waste between 30 to 40 percent of the food supply…that’s something like $165 billion each year that we’re basically just throwing away.

Think about what you can do
Reusing, striving to produce less waste, etc is the best.

In segment one Joey and Holly answer four questions about glyphosate

What is glyphosate?
glyphosate is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide and crop desiccant. It is an organophosphorus compound, specifically a phosphonate, which acts by inhibiting the plant enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase.
Glyphosate is a non-selective herbicide, meaning it will kill most plants. It prevents the plants from making certain proteins that are needed for plant growth. Glyphosate stops a specific enzyme pathway, the shikimic acid pathway. The shikimic acid pathway is necessary for plants and some microorganisms.

What is it mainly used for ?
When used precisely and according to label instructions, herbicides help to keep weeds from competing with crops for water, sunlight and nutrients. Glyphosate helps farmers and homeowners control weeds in many different kinds of plantings

How does it work?

Glyphosate-based herbicides all work on the same biochemical principle – they inhibit a specific enzyme called EPSP synthase [source: Funke et. al.]. Without that enzyme, plants are unable to produce other proteins essential to growth, so they yellow and die over the course of several days or weeks. A majority of plants use this same enzyme, so almost all plants succumb to glyphosate.

Why do some feel it is unsafe?
Although generally believed to be less toxic to humans than other herbicides, some experts have concerns about the possibility that it may disrupt endocrine activity in people [source: U.S. National Institutes of Health]. Other animals, including frogs and fish, may also suffer negative effects.

Scientists continuing to study glyphosate have noted increases in Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a type of cancer, in some people exposed to the chemical [source: Dixon]. The World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer stated in March 2015 that it believed glyphosate is "probably carcinogenic to humans."

A: You plants have a fungal and bacterial this can happen but in your pictures I do not see yellow or shrivel on the leaves that would be a fungal infection

On your cucumbers you have Anthracnose this is a fungus that is most prevalent in wet and warm conditions. It can overwinter in fallen vines, leaves, and other plant debris, releasing spores in the spring to infect new plants. The spores (conidia) need moisture and mild temperatures to germinate.
the first thing you can do is remove up to 25% of the leaves on the plant just remove the infected leaves and throw them in the trash this will mostly be the lower leaves on the plant

Chlorothalonil (Bravo) and benomyl (Benlate) are popular fungicides used to treat anthracnose these are the active ingredients benomyl is a possible carcinogen. Chlorothalonil is a broad-spectrum agricultural fungicide that is often applied to crops in bloom when honeybees are present for pollination because it is currently deemed safe to bees
If a large part of your plant is infected, you may need to remove the entire plant and start over with sanitized soil in a different part of the garden I would trime the affected leaves off the plant

Q: I have hole being eaten in my bok choy what is doing this and how to I stop it

A: That is caused by the Flea Beetle. No, they aren’t really fleas, and they only bite plants, not people. Try this homemade spray to control flea beetles: 2 cups rubbing alcohol, 5 cups water, and 1 tablespoon liquid soap. Test out the mixture on a leaf of the plant, let it sit overnight, then spray the rest of the plant if you don’t notice any adverse effects. Spray the mixture on the foliage of garden plants that are susceptible to these pests.
Dusting your plants with plain talcum powder repels flea beetles on tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and other plants.
Use white sticky traps to capture flea beetles as they jump.
Insecticides may be used early in the season, but are generally unnecessary in the control of flea beetles on adult plants. Be extra diligent if your soil has history of bacterial diseases. Please contact your local nursery or cooperative extension for further advice.

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!
