If you like this video and this type of thing you will love my podcast at http://tspc.co today’s podcast will be a listener feedback episode with a ton of variety.
Today we are looking at where to locate a garden spot. To me there are four critical components to consider which I call POWW to help people remember them. They are Proximity, Orientation, Wind and Water. This is then subjected to a sanity reality check based on the property and over all goals.
Jack, you should check out the crypto currency called Cardano. It is like Algorand in many ways, but even better. I know have been following and researching this for years and I agree that Algorand is good, better than Ethereum foe sure. Cardano is even better as a whole technology stack and it has an amazing community around it. Check it out and thank you!!
And yeah. I'm already imagining that my garden will move, or greatly expand, when we finally build the house. The current garden is nice straight rows, which is what I needed in order to keep track of things and figure out how much of each thing I really need to grow, but I'll be setting stuff up on contour going forward.
My slippers get a little mud on them, but it's never so bad that it isn't worth it.
Solid advice, Jack! I usually talk to people about sun, water, and nutrients (soil). I do like the POWW method too. I can see a nice checklist coming out from this (expanding my new garden checklist that I am going to build). Thank you! Good stuff!
Good morning Jack. Water is my biggest challenge. I have an 80 year old brick cistern that is fed from the house roof that no longer supplies the house. The lid is cast iron with no holes. Any suggestion how I could turn this into my water source for my raised bed gardens? Water is my biggest challenge and I did not build in automatic watering via PVC pipes the way you did. I just do not have those skills or understand how to do it.
