Farming in the city

…. Jules returns to the show and this time I (Steve) have moved beyond making lame excuses as to why I don’t have time to grow my own tomato’s. The questions I have for Jules this time are more directed to the beginner gardener but I have a feeling any green thumb will enjoy this conversation as well.

Go to Podcast with Two Beers with Steve to listen to interview

    Been a big fan of Two beers With Steve for quite awhile. It’s been fun watching him develop a “love” for gardening as he has gone done his path of peak oil/soil/water and economic awakening. The interview with Jules was a really nice treat.

      @Jed: Glad you enjoyed the podcast interview.

      • CJ says:

        Anais, is there a list of all the varieties of vegetables you grow? And maybe even your total harvest weight per variety for last year? I started a quest for self sufficiency this year in Fl. I’d really like to know what are some good crops to grow. Just for ideas. MY goal was to produce about 500lbs of produce but I should double that with little effort……harvesting and immediately replanting has worked wonders for me and I try to have the garden pumping all year long.

        • Anais says:

          @CJ: Yes we keep a record of that, we used to publish it online but we got busy and then behind and then you know how that goes – you never seem to catch up. Good for you, all the best on your Freedom Garden!

    gidday, when you first staretd your garden did you have any invasive weeds to deal with? if so what was your solution? kikuyu grass is our issue.


    • Anais says:

      @steve: Lucky for us – no. We did have pesky bermuda grass and some weeds to deal with and we just smothered them to death with layers of newspapers and mulch.
