It’s Rosie & Jennifer this morning while Romey hosts the Arizona Crawfish Festival.
Jay with Harper’s Nursery & Landscaping Company is here to take questions about anything out in the yard!
Tip of the Week: August 1st…..It’s a day that you can go from planting 4 or 5 veggies in the garden to 14 or 15. You’re garden soil needs to be prepped and Jay lists several plants you can get in the ground.
**Here’s Jay’s Planting Guide!
We also have Julie Murphee with the Arizona Farm Bureau in studio. We discuss when and where great local veggies can be bought.
*Find great recipes for fresh fruit and veggies from your own garden or from fresh local providers at Fill Your Plate!
Recommendation – Jay would just start over. Supplement the soil with Hickman’s organic compost 6-12 inches deep. Add gypsym too, water it really well and start from seed in the next few weeks.
**Julie talks about using drones to improve the care of plants in fields.
We talk about our new site….you’re here, so I guess you’ve seen it!
Recommendation – If it’s just those two spots, he can remove the fittings and sand away the rust and have it repainted. This is a temporary fix, but a much better option than completely removing the tub prematurely.
*Rosie describes the miserable job of removing a cast iron tub….It doesn’t sound fun or easy.
Chris with Stampede Plumbing is here to talk about changes in regulations for new water heaters and to take any questions about plumbing at your house.
Recommendation – $450.00 sounds like a fair price. For a professional opinion, she can call Water Treatment Technologies
Recommendation – He should check the safety release valve to make sure it’s safe, but this will take some investigation by a professional.
