    Check in with yourself before you checked a gardening activity from your list

    There are ways to adjust what you do in the garden to make the practice of gardening safer and more enjoyable. Sometimes it’s as small as winding up a hose. Other times it’s a matter of moving some of the garden’s main features. These minute changes can make so much difference.

A fellow garden YOLO-er

Love this short form podcast! Easily accessible throughout my busy day. I love that you are looking for my thoughtful design work as you recently said you are a person that just throws it in the garden and sees what happens! That’s totally me so I’m happy to be more intentional in my planning. Thanks for providing a great learning resource :)

Winston's Mon ,

Really Grateful for the Podcast!

Thank you so much for providing such a timely and informative podcast!
Much appreciated!!!

LaraJF ,

Fun bite-sized segments

I love gardening and getting organized. When I’m down, reading a book or listening to the Beet gets me back on track. I’ve learned so much on things I hadn’t even thought of trying yet. And I appreciate that each episode is short so I’m able to listen, and then go out and do.
