How’s Your Garden Growing?

Your garden’s been planted for a couple of months now, but how’s it doing? Are your veggies green enough? Are the bugs eating them up? Are they planted in the best soil? George Altgelt, our “gardening go-to guy” addresses these questions and more in this interview!

George studied Chemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology at The University of Texas, Austin and started Austin’s first organic nursery in 1971 before organic was cool. He has considerable knowledge in all areas of food production, including the proper care and feeding of animals for food. He has a deep understanding of the principals of agriculture and nutrition. We think you’ll find George a delight to spend time with.

Show Highlights:

-Is there a way to grow thriving food without having to kill the bugs? Will adding more trace minerals to the soil work?

-How to deal with soil with a high clay content

-The destruction from rabbits and birds to a garden; is there an answer?

-A listener wants to know if Georgehas any ideas on what would make his daughter’s nice strawberry plants that were loaded with flowers, not produce any fruit. She thought she was going to have a great crop but now it looks like no berries. They are in Michigan and have had almost as much rain as Texas.

and so much more!
