Snails, slugs, earwigs…who’s chewing on your plants? Well, in fairness, it could be birds, too. But today we have control tips for the slimy and sinister looking Big 3 of Snails, Slugs and Earwigs. 

Did you know that one out of every three bites of food you eat is courtesy of a bee? We have advice on attracting bees and other pollinators to your yard. We chat with author Kim Eierman about her latest book, The Pollinator Victory Garden.

It’s on this, Episode 10 of the Garden Basics with Farmer Fred podcast. And we’ll have you in and out in under 30 minutes! Don’t worry, we won’t sting you.
