The 4,000 or so native bee species in the United States behave much differently than honeybee colonies and are generally not well understood.

Such a great resource

I started listening to this podcast in the spring. As a hobby backyard farmer, I’ve learned lots already about how we care for our garden. The information is helpful with basic info as well as more “nerdy” details so you can get the amount of detail you’re looking for. I wondered what topics would be covered once Fall rolled around. I’ve learned lots already about a host of topics - the growing native plants episode gave me a whole new approach to establishing perennials and explains why my previous attempts didn’t work. Great podcast that covers all grow zones

Great show! Learning a lot. Joe is good to cover all kinds of growing zones, not just his own. Easy listening, awesome info, low on ads.

I have learned a great deal of information from your podcast. I live in Zone 3 and I started in containers several years and last year I converted my front yard and back yard into raised beds. I have also used winter sowing as a means to create beautiful perennials annuals herbs. I keep a gardening journal and take notes on each pod cast as well as you tube! I have created a pollinator heaven even a designated Monarch Waystation From Canada Zone 3 thank you!! And vegetables have been added and multiple tomato varieties!
