Does Rio Rancho count as Albuquerque Valley?
Lynda Garvin
37:34
Yes, mid April is usual last freeze or snow like last year.
Donna Carson

what is a cover crop?
Desert Blooms
45:21
Great question, Donna! Cover crops are crops that are grown in between cash crops, intercropped with cash crops, or planted in the absence of a normal crop. They are grown to protect the land from soil erosion and loss of nutrients, and to add organic matter to the soil, which increases the soil microbial populations and diversity. Here's a link to more info: https://aces.nmsu.edu/ces/ifcpm/cover-cropping-systems.html

one or two manure providers claim their manure is organic. Is that safe or safer than getting manure from a private person who owns livestock?
P de Naranjo
47:19
will you address using red wigglers--directly imto bed or into holding bin
Ric Partsch
48:13
What is the best recipe for potting mix?
Desert Blooms
50:28
Great Questions! We're keeping track of them. Some will be answered later in the presentation. Others we'll address at the end or share with John for his input and email you with the response. :)
Marika Pineda
51:06
Are there plans available for the waist-high raised beds?
Lynda Garvin
54:40
Regarding manure, it depends on what hay they are using to feed the livestock. Did the hay producer use any herbicides? The person with livestock may not know how the hay was grown, unless they are growing their own forage crops. You can never be 100% sure. Use your best judgement.

You can find a lot of home made soil/planting mixes online. Here is an example from UFL. https://sfyl.ifas.ufl.edu/lawn-and-garden/homemade-potting-mix/

For the soil temperature, do we only choose night time temps?
P de Naranjo
01:03:17
will you address square foot gardening..success, trials, poests, etc

Tried kohlrabi for the first time last year and loved it!
Jessica Chipera
01:08:40
I'm trying kohlrabi this year
Lucinda Surber
01:09:03
We didn’t get enough to try it steamed, but loved it raw.
Lynda Garvin
01:15:32
Ollas are clay jars that are buried in the soil or container, fill with water. the jar slowing releases water. It is an old method of watering in desert climates.
Adriana Giordana
01:17:20
Could one use a plastic container with small holes as a cheaper alternative?
Lynda Garvin
01:18:29
Red wigglers? depends on your goal. Do you have a worm farm and want to make compost tea or worm castings? If you add them directly to your beds, you need to be sure your beds stay moist. If the soil dries out they will retreat deeper into the soil profile. Dry soil, worms aren't happy they need moist soil to stay healthy.

Soil temperatures, you are taking the temp of the soil not the air temperatures. The air temps at night will influence the temperature of the soils but you can't use the air temp to guess what the soil temperature may be.

We will be covering pest management for your garden on May 19th!

I am on our city water system and we are on severe rationing already. If I container garden, is it okay to use household water to carry out to them?
Donna Carson
01:23:01
What was the sub fill used before the soil used in the tall above ground beds?
Bev Clark
01:23:26
Be careful with wood chip mulch as squash bugs love to hide in it.
Pamela Ryan
01:26:18
Where does the application of worm castings fit into all of this?
Bev Clark
01:26:47
If you build your soil with plenty of good organics, they will come to your soil.
Blanche Herrera
01:27:35
I’ve been using what one of the pet stores calls “scratchings” as a mulch. Its inexpensive and works great!

As long as I keep the “scratchings” moist, these high winds we’ve been suffering haven’t blown them away
Jessica Chipera
01:29:51
