063: Gardening Myths With Robert Pavlis: Part 2

This episode is part 2 of my talk with Robert Pavlis, author of the book “Garden Myths”, a book that pit’s his no-nonsense, scientific approach to gardening against many commonly held myths of gardening. In this part of the conversation we talk about tomato myths, internet sources of information (and how lousy they can be), and compare notes on results with different mulch applications.

    I would like to know more about building a natural pond. : )

    A backyard pond sounds good although our backyard is not very big. Thought I would share our experience with Vessey’s blight resistant tomato seeds. We like their sauce tomato that you mentioned. The cherry tomato is also good. One other and I can’t remember which is quite thick skinned and maybe not as tasty. We lost 4 of our six plants. One of those six is coming back from the roots. Wanted to mention that every year we get Septoria leaf spot and it is discouraging. We get a crop but not like we should especially on the indeterminate ones as they should keep producing. The plant defoilates before the frost comes. Any suggestions as to what we might spray safely with?
