First off, I want to apologize for the pity party last week. I almost pulled the episode. Its the first episode I really regretted recording after I listened to it.
But what an overwhelming response to my request for input on the podcast. I am extremely humbled by what I received. That is an understatement.
You are such a great group of friends…..Thank You
I received so many nice stories about how my little podcast has affected their lives I can’t believe it. And they cam from as far away as the UK and Australia. I am attempting to reply to each and every one of you but it is taking some time.
I decided to keep the podcast and blog going, although it may not have a solid schedule. I will attempt one at least every week, but I can’t promise success.
As for the financial side of the podcast we’ll see how it goes. One of my neighbors suggested I share one of my new country crafts with you.
Wile technically not gardening related, it is food related. Since moving to the country I have also taken up woodworking as a form of therapy. I have been making a lot of handmade breadboards and chess boards along with some other things like small cabinets for friends and neighbors.
I am thinking about offering them here on the website as a way to defray some of the costs. If there is any interest I’ll give the first one away in some sort of a drawing before I put them on sale. What do you think?
They are handmade by me, and made of many different hardwoods such as oak, maple, ash, gum, and others. Its been just a hobby but I use several myself. The are nice and thick, not the skinny little boards you see in the stores.
I am also putting back some links to books I like on Amazon. If you would use any of these links when you go to Amazon, regardless of what you are shopping for, they send me a few pennies. No extra cost for you, Amazon takes care of everything.
And again, thanks for all your feedback. It was just what I needed.

Raised Beds – Why?
- Warm up earlier
- Dry out – drains
- Customize your soil
- natural branches
- anything that will hold your soil
- or Just a banked mound even….
Lend very well to drip irrigation. Valve or spigot at each bed, different water needs, etc
