    Help! My FRUIT TREES are Burning Up in the SUN! https://youtu.be/da_IOy9TqzU. If I am about to go on an intense long and challenging hike I try to gain a few extra pounds of fat so that my muscles and organs are a little more protected during the trip! Our fruit trees do the same thing! They produce extra leaves in the late spring and early summer that will protect the main leaves during the harshest heat of the summer season! Once the temperatures drop back down a few degrees and the humidity picks up, your fruit trees will grow again! :) Join My Amazing Facebook Gardening Group Here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Arizo...

    Our First Back To Eden Garden - Part 2
    Outdoors With Eric O.



    Published on Jun 26, 2016
    Here is the second installment of our BTE garden. Now as a time reference so we can get caught up, part 1 was shot weekend after Memorial day and I believe this was a week or two after that. Falling behind a bit but hope to get it up to date real soon so it is more of a live posting :)

    I don't know if you are sick of weeds but I am! So as you know this year the O's are trying an all new method of gardening inspired by "Starry Hilder" (and Mr. Hilder) It is called the back to Eden gardening method and it is a method using wood chips not only to combat weeds but to help build and enrich your soil too. Paul Gautschi has a lot of good material on this matter along with many other who share their success with it. It is my hope to do the same in this multi part series of our "Back To Eden Garden"
