    Ep 52 Shelter at Homestead

    The Original Transplants Podcast Episode 52: Shelter at Homestead
    The Original Transplants Podcast Episode 52 begins with covid-19 pandemic well-wishes from Satoyama Homestead stewards Will and Sarah. Sarah shares highlights from a list of more than fifty homestead plants and other products that are documented to promote wellness in the context of coronavirus symptoms and co-morbid conditions. Household preparedness can be as simple as resprouting the trimmings from store-bought produce for a continuous harvest (see Mother Earth News note). Will details preparations for spring bee package installations in the apiary, and the stewards ponder the impact of pandemic shelter-at-home orders on the road kill supply for carrion scavenger species. We explore homestead chores and fun, including pollinating our peach trees by hand with chicken feathers.

    Ep 51 Resisting the Urge to Prune

    The Original Transplants Podcast Episode 51: "Resisting the Urge to Prune"
    Will and Sarah respond to listener feedback about sharing bad news by sharing more bad news: the beehives are deadouts. The chickens are laying again and Will recounts a recent hawk attack and close call for hen Kentucky. In the edible landscape, Sarah is resisting the urge to prune all the woody vines, trees and berry canes; she is staying busy with seed auditing and seed orders for 2020 and baking quiches with fresh eggs and dried veggies. Lancaster News shares a research update on bioengineered microbes to fight deformed wing virus (DWV) and varroa mites in honeybees.

Wyoming Jo ,

Great show!

Sarah and Will are informative and I really enjoy the show. I like that they cover the successes and failures that they’ve had and how they are adapting their plans as they go. This show is a good soundtrack to my own Homestead Chores/Fun.

Y’all are great. I love the relaxed conversation it really makes the listener feel like we are sitting around the table with you.
