It’s a rather general garden question we received that has a lot of possible answers: "Why am I not getting any tomatoes or zucchini?" But that very general question, with no other details, gives us the opportunity to go through a checklist of all possible causes. One of those reasons just might hit home for you.

Blueberry harvest is ending here in California, but it’s still going on in many other states. We pay a visit to a demonstration garden where the Master Gardeners share their secrets for growing great blueberries. And, how to protect those berries from marauding birds. Even if you don’t have an interest in growing blueberries, you just might be interested in the details of their easy-to construct bird barrier to protect your other garden goodies.

We learn something new, every time, on Garden Basics with Farmer Fred. And we will do it again today in Episode 38, If your tomatoes or squash not producing, We tell you why. And we will do it in under 30 minutes. Let’s go.
