In segment 1 Joey and Holly go over several seedling and seed problems you may or have already faced
Seedling problems from indoors to garden
Old seeds are your seeds good
1 to 10 years seeds are good; germinations test
Damping off
Temperature is key for seeds to grow
Fungus Gnats
The barely discernible flies flitting about just above soil level are probably fungus gnats. While the adult flies don’t damage plants, their larvae can, feeding at the roots so that seedlings fail to flourish
Tiny flies may be fungus gnats, whose larvae feed on plant roots
Leggnest
seedlings turning yellow, white, or brown (and how to fix them)?
Overwatered seedling – Solution: Make sure the soil is never saturated or soggy, and drain excess water from the trays. A soil water gauge is a great tool to help you give them the perfect amount of moisture.
Fertilizer burn – Solution: Chemical fertilizers are notorious for burning delicate seedlings. Switch to a natural, organic seedling fertilizer rather than using chemical fertilizers. And always be sure to follow instructions on the package.
While garden seeds are commonly eaten by mice, most seedlings are damaged by voles, chipmunks, rabbits, or squirrels. In many cases, these small animals may be seen in the garden early in the morning or late in the evening
Row covers
In segment two Joey and Holly talk about several uncommon vegetable that you can grow in your backyard

Yacons:The yacón is a species of perennial daisy traditionally grown in the northern and central Andes from Colombia to northern Argentina for its crisp, sweet-tasting, tuberous roots
Jerusalem artichokes: The Jerusalem artichoke, also called sunroot, sunchoke, or earth apple, is a species of sunflower native to central North America. It is also cultivated widely across the temperate zone for its tuber, which is used as a root vegetable.
Ocas With its distinctive leaf shape, it’s easy to recognize oca as a member of the wood sorrel family. The leaves can be eaten in moderation but the real treat lies beneath the ground. Oca tubers are rich in vitamin C and may be eaten raw, or cooked in exactly the same ways as potato. Oca is planted in spring with the tubers forming in early autumn.
Kohlrabi Kohlrabi is an almost alien-looking vegetable that’s used in similar ways to turnip. The ‘bulbs’ are in fact swollen stems and taste like tender broccoli. They grow best from the second half of summer and should be harvested before they reach tennis ball size. We love them sliced then baked into healthy fries.
Armenian (Yard Long) Cucumber
Ground cherries: are close relatives of tomatillos, considered a type of “husk tomato.” The flavor is often more tangy than sweet, and tastes more like a vegetable
celery
In segment three Joey and Holly welcome their guest Jennifer McGuinness aka Frau Zinnie - https://frauzinnie.blogspot.com/ is an blogger, photographer, writer, and an author who enjoys gardening of all kinds. Her new book MicroFood Gardening will be available April 13.
1. What is microfood gardening?
2. Your new book, MicroFood Gardening comes out soon - can you tell us about an interesting part of it, something to intrigue our listeners?
3. We've been putting up more birdfeeders around our home - you like to attract songbirds - what are some tips to attract them to your garden or yard?
We are talking with
4. You don't have a lot of full sun in your yard, what do you like to grow in minimal light? How do you best utilize your areas with full sun?
5. You raise monarch butterflies and even visited where they overwinter. We would love to hear more about raising them - is it a huge process? A lot of work? Challenges? Fun?
6. How can our listeners find out more about you?

In segment four Joey and Holly answer gardeners questions

Elona who listens to the show on WAAM 1600 out of Ann arbor MI I have a trumpet vine. Not sure if I need to cut it down to the ground or not. One year I did and it grew great over my arbor, but had only a few flowers. This last fall, I only cut back a few and left most of the vine intact, but the vines look and sound like hollow straws this spring. Are the buds going to form on existing vines or form new vines from the ground up? What should I do? Thank you
A: It looks like this is a process over seasons.
In the spring, when new growth begins, you select several of the strongest shoots and train them to the supporting trellis. The rest must be cut to the ground. Once a framework of several strong shoots extends over the trellis or allotted space – a process that may take several growing seasons – trumpet vine pruning becomes an annual affair. In spring, after all danger of frost is past, you prune off all lateral shoots to within three buds of the framework vines.
It is also vital to deadhead the flowers throughout the growing season consistently

Q: Lisa writes in via email and says I Enjoyed the segment on squash from 2 weeks ago. I learn so much from you two.
You mentioned waiting on planting zucchini to avoid the larvae in the stem. (I have had problems with that in the past.) When is a safer time to plant and not have that issue?
I live in Madison wisconsin
A: Thank you for your question. Here is Wisconsin Squash vine borers overwinter as pupae in the soil. They emerge as moths in late June and July. Zucchini
takes 45 to 55 days to harvest so you could plant your seeds in mid July and by the time your plants are of size the egg laying time is over. This would give you zucchini mid September.

Dixie ask
.Q: No one has ever answered the question, “WHY is it called blanching?” I know what blanching is, and how to do it, but I don’t know why it’s called that. The word blanche means “white” or “to whiten”, which doesn’t fit what is done to vegetables. Blanching vegetables actually helps to retain the bright color of the vegetables. So, why is it called blanching?
A: Blanching has a different meaning here - according to the USDA - Enzyme activity can lead to the deterioration of food quality. Enzymes present in animals, vegetables, and fruit promote chemical reactions before and after harvest, such as ripening. Freezing only slows the enzyme activity that takes place in foods. It does not halt them. Enzyme activity does not harm frozen meats or fish and is neutralized by the acids in frozen fruits. But most vegetables that freeze well are low acid and require brief, partial cooking to prevent deterioration. This is called "blanching." For successful freezing, blanch or partially cook vegetables in boiling water or in a microwave oven. Then rapidly chill the vegetables prior to freezing and storage

seedlings turning yellow, white, or brown (and how to fix them)?
Overwatered seedling – Solution: Make sure the soil is never saturated or soggy, and drain excess water from the trays. A soil water gauge is a great tool to help you give them the perfect amount of moisture.
Fertilizer burn – Solution: Chemical fertilizers are notorious for burning delicate seedlings. Switch to a natural, organic seedling fertilizer rather than using chemical fertilizers. And always be sure to follow instructions on the package.
While garden seeds are commonly eaten by mice, most seedlings are damaged by voles, chipmunks, rabbits, or squirrels. In many cases, these small animals may be seen in the garden early in the morning or late in the evening

In segment four Joey and Holly answer gardeners questions

Q: Planting shallots I missed planting them in fall. Can you still plant them in Spring? I'm in zone 5 with the last frost date of May 7. When should I plant them? What variety yields good and thrives here? I see recommendations to start in mid-March but i am not sure because the ground may be still frozen and we get snow until the first week of May. I missed planting them in fall. Can you still plant them in Spring?
A: I do not have a specific variety but you can plant them as soon as the ground can be worked they are very hardy and can stand cold
Q: When a plant or seed requires a certain temperature to grow or germinate, is that an average soil temperature or minimum low temperature required?

A: A minimum low temperature for example peas germinate between 40 and 70゚F If you plant below the minimum soil temperature then the plant can die because it's too cold or the seeds can potentially rot in the ground and not germinate

Q: Hello Holly and Joey
Where I live there is heavy clay soil and the topsoil was scraped off and sold when the house was built. In-ground gardens have not done very well for vegetables. This spring I am building raised beds out of wood and galvanized corrugated metal. They will be 4 feet wide by 12 feet long and at least 18 inches high. I am looking into the wood sealer advertised on your program for the wood as well. Since the beds will be tall I’d like to use the hugelkultur method to fill the bottom and should be able to find free tree parts and wood chips for that. The top 12 inches of soil I will buy in bulk from a garden supply in my town (Janesville, WI). One offers a veggie and flower mix of top soil, mushroom compost, rice hulls, and peat moss for $60 per cubic yard (in stock) as well as plain mushroom compost (out of stock) and screened topsoil in the mid $40s for prices for the latter two. The premier local garden center recommends mushroom compost for raised beds at $50 per cubic yard and keeps it in stock regularly. What product do you recommend? Should I get mushroom compost and add my own amendments? I am willing to add my own organic fertilizer, although I would think that pure compost should be rich enough for the first year. I want a general veggie garden, but probably will have to plant cool season crops in the fall by the time I finish the beds and fill them. Also, should the soil be full depth for any certain plants? Feel free to edit the length or content of this to make it a question for the program.

Also, I bought a lot of seeds and am planning to buy a few different starts of things that seem tough to grow, like peppers. If I don’t have enough room in my raised beds and decide to start a few straw bales for extra space, are there plants that especially do well in them that would save space in the raised beds?

My desired vegetables are

Pole and bush beans
Radishes
Carrots
Head and leaf lettuce
Beets
Cherry and slicer tomatoes, indeterminates
Zucchinis
Various basil, other herbs
Hot and sweet peppers (I think these might like the straw bales)
Pod and shelling peas
Ground cherries
Sugar baby watermelon

Maybe

Onions
Potatoes

Thank you very much, please let me know if there are any more details I can clarify.
A: Thank you for your question and thank you for listening!
The mushroom compost will be the best for your beds and there will be no need to amend - you can add a little organic fertilizer if you want, but not necessary. 10 inches is the minimum depth you would need. Our raised beds are 10 inches deep and we do just fine.

Watermelon, tomatoes, and peppers will do really well in the raised beds. You can grow the basil out of the side of the bale.

Q:Trying to get my Yukons to sprout more eves, its coming slowly so I moved them from the basement to upstairs sunny window..Cool? Is the warmer the better then ? Just wondering if I can leave them in my 55 degree basement or bring them up where it is 74.
A: indirect light is best not direct sunlight 74 degree would be good 55 is of the cool side

In segment two Joey and Holly go over why birds are good for your garden

Birds in the garden
Birds are good as the eat bad bugs
They can pollinate Certain species of birds are incredible pollinators for your garden flowers.
Some of the best birds for pollination are listed below.
Hummingbirds
Oriole
Sunbird
Honeyeaters
The can help control weeds Another benefit of birds in the garden is they prevent and contain weeds by eating the seeds before they ever sprout.
How to attract birds Use a Bird Bath Near your Garden
Bird feeders with wild delight bird seed as it is not have filler but has a selection of seeds the birds will enjoy
Planting native trees and shrubs in your backyard will provide some things that bird feeders can’t replicate

Flowers can bring birds in the garden
Petunia
Dahlia
Coral Bells
Geranium
Iris
Trumpet Vine
Honeysuckle
Columbine
Azalea
Flowering Tobacco
Bee Balm
Sage
Lily
Rhododendron
Lavender

Plants and berries are fantastic for both gardeners and bird enthusiasts. If you are a gardener, there is nothing better then fresh fruit from your garden. And if you are a bird enthusiast, it is a great way to attract birds to your garden naturally.
Here is a list of bird species I suggest repelling and deterring:
Blackbirds
Pigeons
Pheasants
Grackles
Cowbirds
Crows
Bluejays

These types of birds can destroy your garden and resources nearby. They eat tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, corn, seeds, and sunflowers.
Cover crops with bird netting

In segment 1 Joey and Holly go over building raised bedsBuilding raised beds
Treated or untreated wood
Untreated you can use a all natural wood preservative timber pro coatings
Cedar is a rot resistant wood
https://extension.oregonstate.edu/ask-expert/featured/raised-bed-lumber-pressure-treated-safe
The safety of pressure treated lumber for raised bed gardens has been examined by several researchers.
From what I've seen, the consensus is that the chemicals do leach out of the wood into the soil and are uptaken by the plants in very small amounts. However, I haven't seen any research that suggests the level of the chemicals is significant enough to be of concern for human health.
Of course, the primary concern with using pressure treated wood in raised-bed gardens has been with the arsenic in CCA- (chromated copper arsenate) treated wood. This publication from Pennsylvania State University does a good job describing the risks of using both CCA-treated wood as well as ACQ-treated wood: Environmental Soil Issues: Garden Use of Treated Lumber. With regards to CCA, they state, "Although the plant and human health risks from garden uses of CCA-treated lumber appear to be extremely small, there are steps gardeners can take to further reduce any such risks."
One of the steps they recommend is to use wood treated with ACQ - "This is an alternative wood-treatment chemical that contains no arsenic, chromium, or any other chemical considered toxic by the EPA."
If you are shopping for treated lumber nowadays, I don't think you'll find CCA-treated material in the home centers anyway since its use was restricted by the EPA in 2004. It will be more likely be ACQ or some other chemical.

In segment 1 Joey and Holly go over building raised bedsBuilding raised beds
Treated or untreated wood
Untreated you can use a all natural wood preservative timber pro coatings
Cedar is a rot resistant wood
https://extension.oregonstate.edu/ask-expert/featured/raised-bed-lumber-pressure-treated-safe
The safety of pressure treated lumber for raised bed gardens has been examined by several researchers.
From what I've seen, the consensus is that the chemicals do leach out of the wood into the soil and are uptaken by the plants in very small amounts. However, I haven't seen any research that suggests the level of the chemicals is significant enough to be of concern for human health.
Of course, the primary concern with using pressure treated wood in raised-bed gardens has been with the arsenic in CCA- (chromated copper arsenate) treated wood. This publication from Pennsylvania State University does a good job describing the risks of using both CCA-treated wood as well as ACQ-treated wood: Environmental Soil Issues: Garden Use of Treated Lumber. With regards to CCA, they state, "Although the plant and human health risks from garden uses of CCA-treated lumber appear to be extremely small, there are steps gardeners can take to further reduce any such risks."
One of the steps they recommend is to use wood treated with ACQ - "This is an alternative wood-treatment chemical that contains no arsenic, chromium, or any other chemical considered toxic by the EPA."
If you are shopping for treated lumber nowadays, I don't think you'll find CCA-treated material in the home centers anyway since its use was restricted by the EPA in 2004. It will be more likely be ACQ or some other chemical.

In segment two Joey and Holly go over why birds are good for your garden

Birds in the garden
Birds are good as the eat bad bugs
They can pollinate Certain species of birds are incredible pollinators for your garden flowers.
Some of the best birds for pollination are listed below.
Hummingbirds
Oriole
Sunbird
Honeyeaters
The can help control weeds Another benefit of birds in the garden is they prevent and contain weeds by eating the seeds before they ever sprout.
How to attract birds Use a Bird Bath Near your Garden
Bird feeders with wild delight bird seed as it is not have filler but has a selection of seeds the birds will enjoy
Planting native trees and shrubs in your backyard will provide some things that bird feeders can’t replicate

Flowers can bring birds in the garden
Petunia
Dahlia
Coral Bells
Geranium
Iris
Trumpet Vine
Honeysuckle
Columbine
Azalea
Flowering Tobacco
Bee Balm
Sage
Lily
Rhododendron
Lavender

Plants and berries are fantastic for both gardeners and bird enthusiasts. If you are a gardener, there is nothing better then fresh fruit from your garden. And if you are a bird enthusiast, it is a great way to attract birds to your garden naturally.
Here is a list of bird species I suggest repelling and deterring:
Blackbirds
Pigeons
Pheasants
Grackles
Cowbirds
Crows
Bluejays

These types of birds can destroy your garden and resources nearby. They eat tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, corn, seeds, and sunflowers.
Cover crops with bird netting
In Segment three Joey and Holly welcome Their guests authors Sean and Allison McManus, are passionate gardeners.

2. Tell us a bit about your book and a good tip from it that readers would find fascinating or extremely helpful?
3. Looking at your website, we can tell the proper garden tools are important for all gardeners. If you could recommend 3 basic tools for all gardeners to have in their garden shed, what would those be and why?
4. Many new gardeners are starting seeds for the first or 2nd time this year - how is it best to know when to transplant seedlings?
5. Its just early spring for a lot of people - are there any flower bulbs that can be planted to provide lovely colorful summer blooms?
6. How can our listeners find out more about you?

Is segment four Joey and Holly answer gardeners questions

Q: Planting shallots I missed planting them in fall. Can you still plant them in Spring? I'm in zone 5 with the last frost date of May 7. When should I plant them? What variety yields good and thrives here? I see recommendations to start in mid-March but i am not sure because the ground may be still frozen and we get snow until the first week of May. I missed planting them in fall. Can you still plant them in Spring?
A: I do not have a specific variety but you can plant them as soon as the ground can be worked they are very hardy and can stand cold
Q: When a plant or seed requires a certain temperature to grow or germinate, is that an average soil temperature or minimum low temperature required?

A: A minimum low temperature for example peas germinate between 40 and 70゚F If you plant below the minimum soil temperature then the plant can die because it's too cold or the seeds can potentially rot in the ground and not germinate

Q: Hello Holly and Joey
Where I live there is heavy clay soil and the topsoil was scraped off and sold when the house was built. In-ground gardens have not done very well for vegetables. This spring I am building raised beds out of wood and galvanized corrugated metal. They will be 4 feet wide by 12 feet long and at least 18 inches high. I am looking into the wood sealer advertised on your program for the wood as well. Since the beds will be tall I’d like to use the hugelkultur method to fill the bottom and should be able to find free tree parts and wood chips for that. The top 12 inches of soil I will buy in bulk from a garden supply in my town (Janesville, WI). One offers a veggie and flower mix of top soil, mushroom compost, rice hulls, and peat moss for $60 per cubic yard (in stock) as well as plain mushroom compost (out of stock) and screened topsoil in the mid $40s for prices for the latter two. The premier local garden center recommends mushroom compost for raised beds at $50 per cubic yard and keeps it in stock regularly. What product do you recommend? Should I get mushroom compost and add my own amendments? I am willing to add my own organic fertilizer, although I would think that pure compost should be rich enough for the first year. I want a general veggie garden, but probably will have to plant cool season crops in the fall by the time I finish the beds and fill them. Also, should the soil be full depth for any certain plants? Feel free to edit the length or content of this to make it a question for the program.

Also, I bought a lot of seeds and am planning to buy a few different starts of things that seem tough to grow, like peppers. If I don’t have enough room in my raised beds and decide to start a few straw bales for extra space, are there plants that especially do well in them that would save space in the raised beds?

My desired vegetables are

Pole and bush beans
Radishes
Carrots
Head and leaf lettuce
Beets
Cherry and slicer tomatoes, indeterminates
Zucchinis
Various basil, other herbs
Hot and sweet peppers (I think these might like the straw bales)
Pod and shelling peas
Ground cherries
Sugar baby watermelon

Maybe

Onions
Potatoes

Thank you very much, please let me know if there are any more details I can clarify.
A: Thank you for your question and thank you for listening!
The mushroom compost will be the best for your beds and there will be no need to amend - you can add a little organic fertilizer if you want, but not necessary. 10 inches is the minimum depth you would need. Our raised beds are 10 inches deep and we do just fine.

Watermelon, tomatoes, and peppers will do really well in the raised beds. You can grow the basil out of the side of the bale.

Q:Trying to get my Yukons to sprout more eves, its coming slowly so I moved them from the basement to upstairs sunny window..Cool? Is the warmer the better then ? Just wondering if I can leave them in my 55 degree basement or bring them up where it is 74.
A: indirect light is best not direct sunlight 74 degree would be good 55 is of the cool side
