Weekly Friday 3 PM EST Instagram live Q and A sessions - join in and bring your garden questions!

Last edited Thu Apr 30, 2020, 11:22 PM - Edit history (1)

My daughter "moderated" for me - I was in NC, she in WA state - was so cool (she and I were the two visible). Fridays, 3 PM EST - I hope to do them weekly throughout the growing season and beyond, do some live demos, etc. Sara was reading off questions that those watching typed in.

So - follow @nctomatoman - and join in next Friday. Main topic will be dealing with young seedlings - transplanting, care, etc - but anything goes (gardening, not politics! That's what DU is for!)



I think today's debut episode will be up for a bit more time (I think they go away after 24 hours????) Tech savvy-ness is not my forte!

1. What a great thing to do! In England I always watched the gardening shows...those people mean

Business, as you know. Always way out of my league, but so interesting!

2. It's Friday - meaning I will be live at 3 PM EST on Instagram with my daughter moderating

I'll be showing transplanting, taking gardening questions, maybe walking around my developing gardens. @nctomatoman

3. giving this a kick - tomorrow is Friday, so at 3 PM it will be another Instagram Live

from my garden, doing some show and tell and answering live submitted questions - I let it go for 45 min or so, and it is viewable for 24 hours before it vanishes. I will do them weekly right through the season.

4. I recently bought a delightful booklet by Storey publishing

called "Straw Bale Gardening"... Is that your handiwork? I'm giving it a try this year. I live in the woods, on a backlot on sloped property, mostly hard ledge. I've tried some container gardening and raised beds, but trucking in good dirt is hard work. Hoping the straw will be a good intermediary step for soil building. It's been almost 2 weeks with feeding and watering the bales, but they haven't gotten over 80 degrees. It's been cold at night here and not very warm during the days (western MA)... Should I keep adding food or just keep watering?

5. mine is "Growing vegetables in Strawbales" by Storey.

don't be concerned about the temp rise...there are dependencies on bale tightness and ambient temp. 2 weeks from the beginning of treatment they are ready to plant.
