ATP Podcast #64: Fruit Tree Guilds

By dave
July 9, 2014

In this week's podcast, we will talk about planning orchards as complete gardens, rather than as single trees surrounded by grass. What are the various needs that fruit trees have, and are there plants that can actually fulfill those needs? Can an orchard be beautiful, and provide year-round benefits? You'll find out by listening to today's episode.

I'm a reader, not a listener... Sad I *really* wish there was an easy way for y'all to post transcriptions of the podcasts -- there have been several that interested me (this one, especially), but since I no longer have a daily commute that lets me listen to things while driving, I find my attention wanders too much for podcasts.

*sigh*


p.s. I really DO understand that many people love podcasts -- I'm just not one of them, and needed to whine.

I'm so sorry. Sad Would it be helpful if I programmed the site to not show you the podcasts when they are posted?

I appreciate the thought, Dave... but no, don't do that. Who knows - maybe one of these days I'll have a commuting job again, or a long driving trip, and I'll download all the podcasts at once and have an ATP marathon. I just needed to whine, because you've had some FASCINATING podcast topics over the last 2-3 years... if I were more adaptable, I'd be benefitting from them. Whistling

I also am one who prefers to read but that's not why I don't listen to the podcasts. I would LOVE to despite the fact that I prefer reading. Like Mary, there have been quite a few that I would be quite interested in. The problem is that the only internet connection I can get here is my own personal hotspot. I have to pay $10 per gb so listening to the podcasts can really rack up the $$$$.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Most episodes are around 25MB in size. At $10 per GB it would cost 25 cents to download episode #64.
