In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with Annie Haven of Authentic Haven Brand, producer of a quality line of manure teas.

Annie's livelihood is maintaining grass fed live stock to continually produce a line of manure teas that home vegetable gardeners can use to help their plants grow better, stronger and more healthier then their chemical based fertilizer counterparts.

We get an in depth look at what it is like to run a cattle ranch in the state of California and the many challenges Annie faces in doing so.  Such challenges include, wild fires, drought, cattle diseases and more.  

No one ever said life on the ranch is easy, but after listening to Annie speak, you would think it is regardless of the natural disasters she faces every year.

She gives us a look into who uses the manure teas, why they are right for you, and the future of the Haven Brand.

Authentic Haven Brand offers a full line of all-natural, premium soil conditioner teas for the home gardener, landscaper and farmer.

Haven Brand uses only the highest quality manures from livestock that are raised on permanent, native grass pastures at the Haven Family Ranch.

Authentic Haven Brand Premium Soil Conditioner Teas are packaged in an environmentally friendly tea bag, which makes brewing and using them a breeze.

Our soil conditioner teas can be used on vegetables, herbs, flowers, lawns and anything else that grows! The manure tea can also be applied to compost piles to accelerate the composting process, giving you great compost in less time.

In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with Laurel Snyder, author of The Forever Garden.  The Forever Garden, an illustrated children's book, tells the story of a young girl who learns from her neighbor why gardening for the future is so important.  

The neighbor is planting a number of fruit trees and bushes in her garden even though she is moving out of the house.  The little girl doesn't understand why you would plant a garden even though you'll never get a chance to enjoy the benefits of the garden.  

In this well illustrated book, there are many lessons to be learned, and they are taught through the means of gardening.

About this week's guest, Laurel Snyder

I've been writing pretty devotedly, in one form or fashion, since I was about seven. In the fourth grade, I announced to the world that I planned to become "rich and famous writing books and plays for children!" Then I intended to adopt every stray dog and cat in the city of Baltimore and move them all into an old mansion, not far from where I lived.

Well, I'm not rich by any means, I live in a rather small brick house, and I only have one cat, but I am (blessedly) writing books for kids, and I couldn't be more amazed or delighted.

Most days I spend with my sons (who are tiny) smeared with peanut butter, finger paint, and silly joy. But late at night, I write these books... and I hope you'll read one...

And if you like that book, (or even if you don't) I hope you'll write to me, and say hello!
