In this episode, we meet Dr. Lee Reich at his own home garden, where he’s mastered the art of weedless gardening, all without chemicals.
Dr. Lee Reich is a former plant and soil researcher for the USDA and professor of horticulture, author, and long time avid gardener. From his own garden, Lee shares some of his tips for keeping it weedless. While no garden is ever weed-free all the time, over the years, Lee has mastered the art of having a garden with a lot less weeds.
From our own GGWTV Garden Farm, Joe offers tips on how to control weeds without chemicals. Later, Joe explains what can happen to plants when persistent herbicides are consumed in horse and animal feed, then used on plants as composted manure. You’ll also learn how to know if the manure you want to use contains persistent herbicides or not.
In the kitchen, Chef Nathan prepares a delicious meal using spiced applesauce and roast pork tenderloin.
