Tomatoes Everywhere!

We recorded at Studio L this week, where the fall harvest is coming in nicely, and morning glories are shining the live long day! Julie came along as a special guest, and she provided her wish list for next week's garden at Studio B.

Check out our Garden Grlz feed on Tumblr for photos and between-episode updates.

Invasion of the Aphid Snatchers

We're back at Studio B after Laura accommodated a last minute scheduling change. Lots of news and fun topics on today's monster episode that clocked in at just over an hour. Listen in to learn what happened when the mail order ladybugs finally arrived, how Beth finally got mulchy with her driveway gardens, and predictions for adventures in canning! All this and much, much more on this new episode of Garden Grlz!

Check out our Garden Grlz feed on and Laura's Living With Compassion feed on tumblr for photos relating to the episode.

The Watermelons that Ate Manhattan

Today's podcast finds us once more at Studio L, where Laura has successfully daisy-chained three rain barrels and is harvesting, harvesting, harvesting. She's keeping a close eye on the melons, as they seem intent on garden domination. Beth has actually done some cutting down of weeds (so they're more like ground cover, at least), and exploring options for the soon to be expanded front gardens.

Check out our Tumblr feed (link to the right) to see photos and updates between episodes.

Aphids and Tumblr and Squash, Oh My!

The hot days have continued, with Laura continuing her struggles to keep the produce well-hydrated. Meanwhile, at Studio B, the plants fend for themselves - some well, some taking themselves out of the gene pool. Laura's also been having adventures with presumed aphids, and Beth's added a Garden Grlz site on Tumblr. You can click the link on the right-hand menu to check out Tumblr.

Exploding Gardens!

After a week of rain, ran, rain followed by a week of hot, hot, hot, we've moved on to a week of grow, grow, grow! Listen to this week's episode to hear all about how June is bustin' out all over, especially in Laura's gardens! Beth's got some flowers either blooming or on the edge of it, and managed to finish some projects. We also chat about Laura's vacation trip to the Vegetarian Summer Fest in Pennsylvania, some food ideas and what's coming around the next bend. Also - the answer to the cracking radish mystery!
