MNN.com and I Teach How to Amend Your Soil So You Can Grow Your Own Groceries

MNN and Shawna Coronado 2013

Mother Nature Network has started a great educational push to teach people how to grow their own groceries and make a difference in community. This week they invited me to participate as the host for a Google+ Hangout episode right in my front lawn veggie garden.

Our episode this week was focused on teaching viewers the basics of amending soil.  You can see that it’s too early in the Chicago planting season to see plant growth yet. I talked about soil amendments and the basics of putting the plants and seeds in the ground. Please click on the video below and watch to learn more.

Half way through the video making process you will note that my computer broke down and I had to run – and I mean RUN – to my inside computer as fast as I possibly could. This is why the last part of the video shows me sweating profusely in my bedroom. However, it all worked out in the end – message delivered and the video was excellent fun to make. :-)

Thanks MNN.com for having me host a great Google+ Hangout – now let’s get growing!!!

  1. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for first-time blog writers? I’d
    really appreciate it.

  2. Hello, this weekend is pleasant for me, because this point in time i am reading
    this wonderful informative paragraph here at my house.

  3. Their pest control technicians are experienced and
    insured. If you have problems with the solution foaming too much iin
    the recovery tank (where the dirty water winds up, not where the clean water is held), add a few drops
    to a teaspoon of fabric softener depending on how baad it is,
    or a teaspoon of salt. Pull the machine backwards at a rate about
    a foot a second.

  4. Using this style makes betting much more accessible to the public.
    The European Space Agency is hoping to have a lunar base established
    by 2025, and Russia a manned mission by the same year.
    If you want to gamble with real money almost all
    the sites now have i – Phone friendly mobile websites which do not require approval, but play largely like apps.

  5. It will keep you from wasting cash on mediocre job and wull certainly also make certain that you have

    I don’t leave a leave a response, but I browsed a few of the responses here MNN.com and I
    Teach How to Amend Your Soil So You Can Grow Your Own Groceries – Shawna Coronado.

    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay.
    Could it be simply me or do a few of the remarks come across like they are written by brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are writing on additional online social
    sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
    Could you make a list of every one of your social pages like your
    Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  7. You (me too) will always be predisposed to lupus even if you are able to successfully treat it.
    Find other ways to get to your job for example, and test
    them daily. The important part is to realize from the very beginning that
    it can not be cured with pills.
