Earlier I blogged about my visit to Arizona and the Urban Farm, home of Greg Peterson, a very committed disciple of growing your own food right in downtown Phoenix. More recently, Greg and I had a chance to “talk fruit trees” on the Urban Farm podcast. Come listen in while we compare notes and chat about why home grown food is so important and so fabulous!
Of course we talked a bit about the “how-to.” Other questions we talked about include:
- a time we may have failed as growers and what we learned
- success, of course, too
- books that have been the most influential in our life as food gardeners and educators
- what we consider the best things about growing your own food and
- a few comparisons and differences between growing in our varied climates of hot, dry, low chill Arizona and chilly, short season Michigan.
Listen in, you may be surprised by a few points and hopefully stimulated to further action by others.
