Humic DG, Organic Fertilizer, & New Product Thoughts
Allergies & bad time management have kept me from podcasting recently, but I'm back for another rant about Organic Gardening & ideas I have to expand my brand & business, Gardening 4 Gains ๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸŒฑ As far as organic gardening goes, I talk in-depth about a few fertilizer products from The Anderson's that I'm super pumped about. The first is an organic fertilizer called Innova. It's an OMRI listed fertilizer made from soybean meal - and the plants already feeding on it love it! I also talk about a Humic acid product called Humic DG - really popular for lawn applications, but also huge for organic farmers! ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿšœ I end the podcast talking about some thoughts I have for expanding my brand & product offering, centered around my passions of Gardening & Gains - what would you like us to carry? Is there any health/fitness/organic product you're looking for but can't find? ๐Ÿค” Would love to hear your thoughts on the podcast & what you're doing to Garden for Gains! ๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸŒฑ

Organic vs Synthetic, Soil Health, & Emotional Decision-Making
The title is pretty self-explanatory but today I talk about organic vs synthetic fertilizers and how I want to study more to learn the truth about their effects rather than jump on an emotional bandwagon or simply assume something is "bad" because it isn't organic. I tried to keep that rant short but I believe it's important to challenge controversy head-on - or else you'll never know the truth. We also discuss soil health, my plans to attempt to expand the garden (again), and discuss future guests I'll be having on the show. Let me know if you have any gardening questions & I'll be happy to answer them in a future podcast ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ™๏ธ

Living in the Moment & Weekend Garden Projects
In this episode I talk about the importance of living in the moment and how that will make you the happiest version of yourself while dwelling on the past or worrying about the future will put you in a place of depression or anxiety. On a lighter note, I also discuss the garden renovations that Kyla and I made to the garden over the weekend including: adding a new garden gate, installing a new fence, and overall improving the general aesthetic of the Garden of Gains ๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸŒฑ

Upgrading the Garden Gate, Fence, & Aesthetic
In this episode I talked about upgrading the garden gate, fence, and overall aesthetic of the Garden of Gains. Yesterday me and Kyla worked hard to drive in fence posts, then put up the new fence - and we also found a new gate at Menards instead of the hillbilly gate that we've been using that I made out of bamboo and crappy wood ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Other than our big weekend projects I also discuss the ability to grow year-round, why growing in soil is important for flavor, and talk about the terroir of fruits & veggies ๐Ÿท

Tornadoes, Rain & the Importance of Vacation Time
In this episode I talk about the storms that have been slamming Ohio non-stop this year, including a tornado in Dayton a couple nights ago. We have been lucky through it all, and really just benefiting from all the rain that's been feeding the garden ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ง I also talk about the importance of talking vacation time and why we need to disconnect from work and recharge ourselves. I think it's also important to separate from work so we realize it is a part of our lives, but not your complete identity in life. It's important, but there's so much more to life - work hard but live harder!

The Meaning of Life, Following your Passion, & Yard Work
I got a little deep & philosophical in this episode ๐Ÿง ๐Ÿ›‹๏ธ talking about the meaning of life - or how to find meaning in life, no matter what you're doing. A lot of this depends on what your passion is; how to find it. I think this all comes from actions, not learning, not reading - the only way you can know is by trying, failing, and persevering. After the philosophical rant I talk about plans for the garden and natural pest control options such as beneficial insects and organic pesticides ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿž

Burpee Plants and Rants on RoundUp, GMOs & Organics, and Growing Supplies
This episode dives into some facts, feelings, and opinions on controversial topics that are top of mind for so many - RoundUp, genetically modified foods/crops, organic growing methods, and my thoughts on the hysteria surrounding those topics. This isn't all serious & controversial though ๐Ÿ˜‚ just some logical thoughts to get people thinking, and take the emotional component out of decision-making. I also talk about plans for the garden which include planting out some new plant varieties from Burpee ๐Ÿค— for those who don't know, I was selected as a 2019 Gardener of the Year by Burpee and will be featured during the month of October. In the meantime, I can't wait to plant the new varieties & taste the Purple peppers and the sweet habaneros in the coming months ๐Ÿคค

Overcoming Climate Change with Root Pouches
Whether you "believe" in climate change or not, I think we can all agree that we've seen storms increase in strength & duration. It seems like any time it rains, the new normal is for it to dump a couple inches of rain. The weather has essentially become like the world - extremely polarized; all the way left or all the way right.. or is it just our perception because of this political climate (weather pun intended). So aside from that rant ๐Ÿ˜‚ here's my take on why I switched from growing in the ground to gardening in Root Pouches ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿฆ˜

Growing Broccoli, Organic Pesticides, & Companion Planting
In yesterday's podcast I bragged about how my broccoli hasn't been attacked by bugs yet, went home and had holes in leaves, so that means it's time to spray! Though I hate spraying pesticides, it's completely necessary if you want to harvest what you planted - plus it's an organic, natural product - not harsh chemicals ๐Ÿงช Other than organic pesticides, I talk about other natural ways to control pests such as companion planting & trap crops

Last Frost, Transplanting, and Rainwater
Today's the day - it's our last frost day in Ohio ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ Even though we haven't seen a frost or freeze in over a month, it's still best to wait rather than gamble with the life of your precious plants ๐ŸŽฐ Other than talking about the last frost, I also talk about transplanting tomatoes & peppers and about my plans for the hundreds of peppers I'm growing. To wrap things up, I talk about irrigation in the garden and why rainwater is so great for your plants ๐ŸŒง๏ธ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ what are you planting in your garden this year? Let me know if you have any questions about growing & I'll throw it in a future podcast!

Growing Tomatoes in CowPots
Growing Tomatoes from seed is always a challenge - which is what makes it fun! Seems like you always start too early or too late. This year I was too early and my tomatoes plants were struggling in the plug trays because they were becoming root-bound. I didn't think they'd survive but Kyla told me to plant them up into a bigger pot so they could stretch their legs. Luckily, I had CowPots on deck and I'm super impressed with how my plants have bounced back and began to thrive ๐Ÿค— In this episode I talk about what CowPots are, why they're the best pot you don't know about, and how they saved my tomato seedlings - and ultimately, my garden.

Growing Veggies & a Business Organically
Every plant I grow is grown using organic growing methods - and the same goes for my business. In this episode I talk about updates to the CropBox, my plans for the National Hardware Show, and dive into my plans to grow my business - organically, slow & steady and only as I'm ready! And that begs the question - what other products do you want me to offer other than fresh veggies & herbs? Would love to hear your thoughts ๐Ÿ˜

Building Raised Beds & Aesthetics in the Garden
We were super productive this weekend and finally built Kyla's raised bed for growing herbs ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ In this episode I walk through how to build raised beds, what we planted in that bed, and plans for future growth. Being sick last week also made me really reflective and realize the gaps I need to fill with my content - not just the podcast, but video and blogging as well. Yet it isn't all about production, it's about sharing your passion with the world - and more importantly, it's about living in the moment and enjoying your passion; enjoying your life ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฅณ

Gratitude & Documenting Life
In this episode I go on a quick rant about how I'm grateful for the immense amount of documenting I have been doing and how it gives you perspective of your life, the changes that happen, and most importantly you can capture those joyful moments in time.

Cold Weather Crops & our New Drip Irrigation Setup
In this episode I talk about what I'm planting early in the season. Part of the early planting is the amazing weather we're having in Ohio, but also because I'm more confident to take a risk because of the experience and knowledge I've built over the years. I also talk about the drip irrigation system that we got setup over the weekend and how it'll be such a game changer - saving water, time, money, and ultimately producing healthier plants. This will also be assisted by the Chapin Hydrofeed fertigation system that will be setup with the drip line. So pumped to get this garden on the gains train ๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸŒฑ

Optimizing Time & How to be Happy
Lately I've been obsessed with Time - how do I make the most of the time I'm given? What can I do to find more time? I think there's a ton of time we can steal back from time suckers like complaining, debating taking action, and doing busy work. I think it's also important to realize that it's not simply about the quantity of time - QUALITY is the ultimate benchmark โณ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธโŒ›

Aesthetics & Creativity in the Garden and the Importance of Being True to You
My garden has mostly been functional but this year I'm focusing on creativity and aesthetics - in the garden & online. In this episode I start talking about creativity, art, and some updates on my seedlings growing vertically in the grow rack I have set up with LED grow lights. Towards the second half I start talking about being real and how thats the most important thing, not followers, likes, or vanity metrics. The beautiful thing about social media is that it allows you to connect with people on a deeper level - it isn't the amount of followers you have, but the quality of the relationships you cultivate and the positive impact you can have by simply being yourself and sharing your truths with the world ๐Ÿ™

Lost Podcasts, Droppin Knowledge & Motivation
So it looks like my last few podcasts have been cut short due to a bug with Anchor (I'm guessing because it was only when I recorded within the app), but here's a full-length podcast talking about the issue and what I began talking about in the past 2 podcasts. After talking about that and the garden, I start diving into more motivational/psychological thoughts - and thats what I love about the morning podcasts - I'm so amped for the day and want to spread that energy to everyone I can! โšก

Asking for the Sale
Some people are constantly selling, everything is "buy this" "read this" "do this thing for me" - and on the other end of the spectrum, some people can never ask for the sale. I fall into the "not being able to ask" category, but I think I have been slowly getting better. Thanks to my brother Adam for giving me a reality check and helping me to believe in myself and my business - and hopefully this will help expand my product offering and grow my business exponentially ๐Ÿ“ˆ

Growing Media: Soil Health, Amendments, & Beneficial Organisms for Gardening Success
Welcome back to another episode featuring Tori Bruns - fellow Merchandiser at AM Leonard & grower at Mustard Seed Farm Market. In this episode we dig into Soil, Soilless media, soil health, and some of the beneficials we use to manage Plant Health, reduce disease and pest pressures, increase drought tolerance - AND SO MUCH MORE! Soil & soilless media is clearly the foundation for plants' growth, but the importance goes so far beyond fertilizers & NPK - it is essentially a whole other world living beneath our feet that give us the foundation for life as we know it! What kind of soil media are you growing in this year? Have you tried making your own? What are some amendments you would recommend to use in the garden? And if you have questions about ANYTHING we talked about - call into the station (if you listen on Anchor) or drop us a comment & we'll address it in a future podcast!

How Portal will make Facebook Dominant
When I first saw Facebook's Portal I was pretty cynical about it. But my feelings have changed as I have travelled on this vlogging journey from filming to editing, and simply realizing the vast amount of time and effort that is spent on the whole process - that's when I realized that Facebook Portal was the answer to that creative conundrum. In this podcast I rant about how the Portal needs to be modified and marketed, but I go down some really interesting paths about how the Portal is only the beginning of pulling people further into the Facebook platform & ecosystem of companies it owns like WhatsApp, Instagram, Marketplace. I think the current version of the Portal is only the beginning of a huge shift in the way we deal with social media platforms.

National CSA Day - Interview with Tori from Mustard Seed Farm Market
In honor of National CSA Day, I did a podcast with another local grower, Tori Bruns who runs Mustard Seed Farm Market in McCartyville, OH. She's growing on a much larger scale than I am with 2 high tunnels, an acre of sweet corn, and an acre of pumpkins. In this episode we dive into her origin story & how she got started farming, what a CSA is, what we're currently growing, and a ton of other stuff about growing fruits & vegetables and our plans for the year. Today is National CSA Day because it is the last Friday of the month of February. That's usually the time that people are finalizing their CSA customer list so that they can plan what to grow for the coming season. Hope you enjoy the podcast & feel free to drop us a comment with any questions & we'll be happy to answer them.

Talking Permaculture, Music, and Perspective with Romo Loco
This is the first podcast I've ever done with another person & who better than my lifelong friend Tyler Gutman, aka Romo Loco. On the podcast we begin by talking about the Origin stories of our names, both "Romo Loco" & "Gardening 4 Gains", then we talk more in-depth about gardening, permaculture, and Tyler's journey into the jungles of the Amazon.

Battling Insecurities, Opening Up, & Vlog Plans
This was from a video I filmed at the beginning of the year right after I began vlogging. In this podcast I talk about a funny story of taking our dog Basil to the vet, then I go into talking about vlogging. I touch on the challenges & time it takes to adapt and retrain your mind into a different way of thinking. We have been told how bad social media is, but I think that vlogging shows the good that resides in these platforms - and that's exactly what it's all about - Platforms. You have a platform to speak your truths, to tell your life story, and most importantly to me - you have the chance to be the Matriarch or Patriarch of your family tree. When you look back at your family history you may have a few pictures of great-grandparents, but think about the endless amounts of content our great-great-great grandchildren will have from us! If you want to, you can be the start of your digital family tree & hundreds of years from now your ancestors will be tracking you down - you'll be the earliest relative they can find with an overwhelming amount of posts, tweets, videos - whatever you want to create & be remembered by: true Legacy.
