In segment four Joey and Holly answer gardener's questions
Q: Can old tires be used as raised beds?
A: Most scientific studies thus far suggest that most of the health issues regarding tires arise when they are burned, Despite the fact that the EPA and Center for Disease Control have not found statistic links to health hazards from either intact tires or "crumb" products, studies are still underway and officials acknowledge that more data is required. many reputable organic gardening sources, such as Mother Earth News cautions against growing edibles in tires as a long-term practice. As they age, rubber tires do break down and release the same metals and chemicals that are known to be an immediate problem when tires are burned. However, this is an extremely slow process. The fact that tires break down so very slowly is why they pose such a notable problem in the environment, and it takes many decades for a tire to fully break down into its toxic components. Still, the process is underway to a small degree all the time.
Q: Can you please advise me on what to put under trees. I did bark and landscape material under it as weeds grew through. I now planted ground cover under pictures I will send.
Is this ok ???
Also under trees grass will not grow. Do I just plant ground cover?
What are good green beans to plant? I don't want the flat pods. They were tough last season.
Thanks for your program.
A: Ground cover under your tree works well.
Blue lake pole or bush beans are a great green bean - round and flavorful!
Q: Looking to grow watermelon. I have failed many times, usually just end up with a small unripe melon. I am in zone 4b, is it too late already this season? What is the best method for actually getting to eat some? I am willing to try anything, but most of my growing is in a traditional garden bed.
A: Thank you for your question. a large watermelon in zone 4 and 5 where our gardens are located is near impossible. However several years ago we were able to grow and harvest a watermelon. It was a cream-of-Saskatchewan watermelon, we grew it in a straw bale. Saskatchewan watermelons are a white-fleshed round watermelon (5-10 lb.). Thin, brittle, pale green rind with dark green stripes. Flesh is very sweet with excellent flavor. One of the best home garden varieties for short season climates.
Q: What was the product you mentioned on your show Sunday April 11th to get rid of Japanese beetles and grubs.
A: Phyllom Bio products
How do you prepare Jerusalem artichokes? I'm not sure I even know what those are! ?
A. We put them in roast and bake them , you can eat them raw, we also cut them in thin chips, coat them with oil and air fry them as chips. They have a nutty and savory earthy like a cross between an artichoke heart and the best potato you've ever had. I would find someone who grows then to taste before just growing them to make
