Welcome to Spring, friends!  Hallelujah and pass the Dombucha Kombucha; the snow is melting!  We have a great podcast lined up for you today, and we are kicking off Spring right by talking urban farming and gardening.  I had a chance to talk with my good friend Michael Bell from Dallas Half Acre Farms about what is happening on the farm.  While he has been very busy selling and buying a house, moving, teaching and of course being a dad and husband, things are really busy on the farm as well.  Michael has made several improvements to the farm including installing new tunnels, increasing the number of seedlings he needs, improving his seedling growing processes and growing easy with GrowOya!

You might be asking: what is an GrowOya?

GrowOya is another method for watering your gardens using a clay pot that looks like a gourd.  The water seeps into your soil and the plants get what they need.  It is another method to water your garden without timers, hoses, drip tape or other methods. 

Michael is lining a tunnel with GrowOya products and experimenting with tomatoes this season, and it is another self-watering system that could be used on any size garden!

Here is a little more information about this product.
