    Ep.42: High Summer, Deep Time Duocast

    Ep.42: High Summer, Deep Time Duocast

    The number 42 is AC's fav and we talk about why briefly. We draw inspiration from some of our previous episodes and dive a bit deeper into some topics discussed like diversity, dissensus (and do-ocracies), climate crisis, grief and how to throw mud at walls. Of course, discussing plants is also a big part of the episode. We talk about wild flowers, weeds, cottage gardens and dumpstered potatoes.

    Bonus Ep.2: Teaser: How to Grow Your Dream Garden on a Budget

    Bonus Ep.2: Teaser: How to Grow Your Dream Garden on a Budget

    This is a teaser of our bonus episode for our $9 & up Patreon tiers. If you want to support us, you can do so at Patreon.com/PlantCunning and be the first to receive content like this!





    ...We have been gardening on a budget for many years and these are some of our favorite ways and places to get plants from. Plant prices at nurseries and green houses are expensive and just getting more and more pricey.

    We go into depth on how to propagate plants from seed, cuttings, or divisions, explaining each of those ways in detail. Then we list some of the best places we have found plants ranging from friends gardens to the Walmart parking lot.

    We hope you enjoy the episode and are inspired to start saving seeds and looking under trees this year (for little seedlings popping up of course)....
