Episode-936- Holly Baird from Wisconsin Vegetable Gardeners

A Beautiful Backyard Wisconsin Eggplant

A Beautiful Backyard Wisconsin Eggplant

Holly Baird and here husband Joey put out a weekly vegetable gardening/DIY show.  They focus on the average gardener, simple home living, and using what you already have.

They strive to be self sustainable, and focus and reusing common items to keep things out of the landfill and save money.  They grow an organic vegetable garden in a suburban area near Milwaukee, WI.

Holly joins us today to discuss why they do a show that encourages people to grow their own food and become more self sufficient.

We also discuss why they are growing their own food and why it just makes sense to do so today.  Their favorite things to grow, highest yielding plantings and the best plant selections for the first time gardener.

We then discuss concepts like the GMO food threat, dealing with pests organically, supporting local growers and ways to preserve and extend the harvest.

  2. Ok, I have had squash vine bore for the last two seasons, this year a retired ag teacher told me to try moth balls at the base of the plant. This year I have had no squash vine bore. Might be worth a try. I buy my moth balls a the Dollar Tree. The chemical (?) in these moth balls contains the ingredient that is also safe to use when storing bee hive bodies and supers to protect them from moths. (some moth balls are not safe to use with storing bee hive bodies and supers)
