Editor's note Nov 10/12: when originally posted I had the wrong episode set up to play. That's fixed. And after some fumbling around this episode is now available on iTunes. Sorry for the delay and confusion. The podcast has been resurrected! After a successful trial of four episodes in the spring, the farm absorbed all of my attention, but I finally have some time to produce episodes again. And mark my words, dear listeners: you can expect a podcast every week starting now.
Over the summer I thought a lot about what I want this podcast to be. The verdict? Each episode will have one topic and usually, one guest. There will be a focus on knowledge transfer between experts on various topics and we farmers and gardeners. Occasionally I'll do a farmer profile or focus on farmy politics. But mainly this will be all about improving the practice of producing food.
This episode: Troy Peters, an irrigation expert with the Washington State University extension system, dishes on best practices in crop irrigation. I learned a lot. I hope you do to.
