Thank you, Mark. Dark day outside, but I moved my container plants out in the open so they would get watered!!! Everything looks so lush and beautiful; a great day nevertheless. I've actually never looked at the blog...only at the notices sent to my email. This is interesting!
Thanks, Mark. Have a 20-year-old 10' Norfolk Pine that came inside each winter. Planted it in August and it's thriving. After hearing you say on Saturday's program that the winter winds are most harmful, am trying to build a green house around the pine, using the poly spun material and PVC.
Hi Mark, On your removing old mulch topic. If the old mulch is lets say thick chunky dyed wood pallet material 2" to 3" deep I don't think it would be good to cover with good pine bark mulch. That will rob the soil of nitrogen just to break down that junk mulch material so in this instance wouldn't it be better to remove old.
Hi Mark! Your page is really different....very classy;) thank you for having a website and the time and effort you put into encouraging us to get out there and do something with our...gardens!!! I started listening to you about 3 1/2 years ago....the radio was on another program at night when i woke up and heard you, you cracked me up I almost fell out of bed several times listening to you and your guests and callers:) lol! I have learned a lot and am very glad to be a listener. I wanted to record some of them but thought I would ask, is it recorded somewhere? do you have an archive? it would be fun to hear what you talked about over the past:) I am also a history nut aside from loving butterflies and gardening. Again, thank you:)
Thank you for welcoming me to your web site. I have started a couple year ago with vegetable gardening I started heirloom tomatoes, red bell peppers and kohlrabies from seeds. I started them about the first in Jan and was wondering when and how much outside sun light I should start them out with so they don't get sun burnt???? Thank you Tom
I called your show Saturday to ask you if deciduous trees evolved north of the arctic circle.
I was watching Think TV and,
I heard trees dropped their leaves up there during winter because there was no light during the winter.
The poles were supposedly warmer back then.
Your response was basically that they evolved in their local niches.
Thanks for the info.
If you come across any more info on the topic, can you cut and paste it to an email and send it to me at email@example.com?

If you help me out, maybe I could find a way to help you in the future. Telling me that this is phooey may also help me too, if it is indeed phooey.
Thanks Mark for the welcome message, I have many questions on many topics from EAB to Vegetable gardens and look forward to learning about it all. I have shared with many of my friends and associates the great many things I have learned from listening to your show and recommended they give it a try. Of course I get a few funny looks when I mentioned the fact that the show is on at 0600 on Saturday, but then I share your web site. Anyway thanks for letting me in.
Mark- Looking forward to seeing you at the Ohio ISA Conference in Dayton, Feb. 10-12.I wanted to talk to you about shallow root systems on trees, esp. conifers and how to create deeper, stronger root systems.
