Fight to Save Your Garden


FIGHT TO SAVE YOUR GARDEN
July 7, 2018
Hey everyone, I am Cathy Harris, a Speaker, Author and Coach, from Austin, TX and at 61 I recently embarked on an idea to show my audience in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s that they too could grow their own foods in their backyards.

I have been growing foods for one year and now I am a “Gardening Coach”. I recently almost lost my entire garden, 3 raised beds, to a fungus that I believe I got from buying ‘ready-made’ Compost Tea from a gardening center so in the future I will make my own Compost Tea.
All my foods, Swiss Chard, Peppers, Cucumbers, Spinach, Watermelons, Cantaloupes and Honeydew Melons, except for the Tomatoes and the Sweet Potatoe Slips, were grown from seeds and I do this to avoid diseases because many transplants that you buy might also have a disease on it.
I see so many people online being discouraged and even throwing out their plants when they get a disease, but check out what I did to save my garden on the video below:

You can do this with family members, friends and neighbors. Got Mentor:  I did not only attend regular, local FREE natural gardening center meetings and classes, the instructors there, both a man and woman, served as my mentor. Started My Own Garden Club:  I started my own garden club  "Cathy Harris Garden Club" ( www.CathyHarrisGardenClub.com ) and laid out every step  aspiring gardeners  could take by writing articles and selecting quality videos.

Beware of Snakes in Your Garden

Beware of Snakes in Your Garden About a month ago I was standing 5 ft. away from a curled up 6 ft. Western Diamond-backed Rattlesnake ...when I was watering my 3 raised beds. It had eaten a ra t and was just laying against one of the beds. The next week my neighbor saw the same type of snake in her yard. This snake was in the top 10 most poisonous snake in the world and it's in my backyard in Austin, TX. What can kill snakes besides Dr. T's Snake-A-Way? Someone told me they don't like lavender. Is that true? Do anyone know anything else you can kill snakes with besides Dr. T's Snake-A-Way?
