GYG-087 Grow Your Own Organic Garlic!


Must watch Video – Farmageddon.

In this episode I discuss the two types of garlic and how easy they are to grow. Whether you choose Hardneck or Softneck, homegrown Garlic adds a nice touch to almost any meal.

Prop 37

Prop 37 ( Label GMO Food) is being fought with millions of dollars funneled by the big Food companies.  All we want is to know.  No tax, no bans, no surcharges – just let us know whats in our food  No matter what state you are in, the outcome of this legislation has the potential to impact you and your family.

Aquaponics or Hydroponics what are they?

This week I want to talk a little about each and share a video link where you can see it put into practice.



The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener by Nikki Jabbour

This book on year round vegetable gardening is my new must read book.  Next to Elliot Colemans excellent book on the same subject, this book helps any gardener get started and improve their gardens production all year round.  The author lives near Halifax, Nova Scotia so she knows about cold weather growing.

Now that Fall is upon us with Winter soon to come, what better activity than to read and learn about techniques to help us grow all year round.

      Thanks, Mark. It was an interesting recording to listen to. Too bad the entire video presentation wasn’t included.

    Hi Steve,

    I sure do empathize with your upset over the American food crisis (which is exactly what it is.) It is upsetting, the way Monsanto and their sort are pushing this GMO garbage… kind of Orwellian in a way..very disturbing. That said, the UK was able to reverse the gears and seem to be on the forefront of the Slow Food movement now. I can only hope the US has the same awakening to reality, sooner than later.

    Thanks for another stimulating debate about this very critical issue, Steve. I wish more folks were talking about it…

    ..all the best..

    Wylie, in Canada.
