The Beast in the Garden on Access Utah Friday

When mountain lions began appearing in Boulder Colorado, residents cheered the news.  But as the lions feasted on pets and began to endanger humans, political battles began—until tragedy brought town together.  David Baron’s "The Beast in the Garden" is (according to goodreads.com) “a book about the future of our nation, where suburban sprawl and wildlife-protection laws are pushing people and wild animals into uncomfortable, sometimes deadly proximity."  David Baron will give the USU Common Literature Experience Convocations speech Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. in the Kent Concert Hall and he’s Tom Williams’ guest for the hour Friday morning on Access Utah.

Soil and Food Preservation on Access Utah Monday

If your soil is sandy, or if it has too much clay, the best way to change it is with a consistent program of adding organic matter. The most efficient and easiest way to do this is by planting a cover crop.  You can do this in the spring or in the fall. Seed is readily available and fairly inexpensive, and all you have to do is incorporate the crop into the soil at the appropriate time. You’ll add precious organic matter that holds water more efficiently and adds nutrients back into soil to be used later by your vegetables or ornamentals. USU soils specialist, Grant Cardon, will be in studio for the first half hour to instruct us in how to do this.
