    The Edible Front Yard

    in Environment

    Year after year, homeowners spend countless hours perfecting their lawn as they go to extremes to make sure that the common dandelion and other misplaced plants never appear. Be that as it may, lawncare is a $30 billion industry, chock filled with products that contain toxic chemicals like Imidacloprid, which are part of the new breed of systemic pesticides called neonicotinoids. These chemicals will wipe out any chance for a butterfly or bumblebee to visit your home to pollinate the vegetables in your garden much less your pretty flowers. Many conscious gardeners are rethinking how they manicure their land. They simply convert the front lawn into an edible landscape! It not only contributes to good soil health which is critical to the environment but also helps to lower food bills. In The Edible Front Yard, author, Ivette Soler talks about how you can convert all or part of your front yard into an edible garden which can not only add texture and fragrance but a designer aesthetic appeal that will surely make your home the envy of your neighborhood. Tune in to this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, as host, June Stoyer talks to designer and Germinatrix, Ivette Soler to discuss her new book, The Edible Front Yard! Stay tuned!

    Whirl With Merle

    in Travel

    B & Y Farms has evolved over the last 8 years since Judy had been living on her 74 acre farm since 1991, where she pursued her passions for organic gardening, raising chickens and ducks, and homeschooling her family.
     


    An introduction to Tunis sheep at the New York State Fair in 2007 led Judy to seriously reinvent the farm, adding a brand new barn, watering system and fencing. Her first flock of 5 Tunis sheep arrived in 2008, and the rest, as they say, is history. She has expanded to a registered
    flock of more than 50 purebred Tunis sheep. Judy practices intensive rotational grazing on approximately 10 acres for all the livestock she raises.

    In addition, B&Y Farms raises Duroc-Yorkshire and Large Black pigs and Cornish & Poulet Rouge chickens.  The pigs spend their lives 100% outside and in the garden.  Outdoor moveable poultry houses allow the chickens to remain on clover pasture. When grain is administered, it is
    certified 100% fresh ground local, GMO free and gluten free.
     


    The Tunis sheep are raised only on pasture and unsprayed hay, with grain given during gestation and nursing to the ewes. Although not organically certified, the land is completely unsprayed, and no herbicides, pesticides, fungicides are used, EVER.

    All produce is grown on premises on intensively farmed gardens. Judy overwinters her pigs  in the garden, allowing them to forage for leftover produce, while enriching the soil for the next
    planting season. All poultry, lamb & pork is humanely raised on premises.

    Lamb and Pork are available custom USDA butchered.  All meats are cryowrapped and frozen.  Lambs may be ordered whole fresh. 

    Owner Judy Genova will tell us all about the farm and process.

    US Racing Show

    in Sports

    Host Derek Simon of US Racing recaps the Big ‘Cap, the San Felipe, the Honeybee and the Tampa Bay Derby. He also gives his impression (not literally, that would be hard) of the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks.


    Later, Roger LeBlanc, author of “The Lazy Bettor’s Guide to the Kentucky Derby,” opines on this year’s Kentucky Derby contenders and offers his “lazy” take on how to gauge the pace and speed of the various Derby preps.

    Lastly, Kevin Rogers of VegasInsider.com is back to discuss March Madness.


    ABOUT THE GUEST(S)


    Roger LeBlanc, never shy about taking credit or blame, launched the lazybettor.com site shortly after writing “The Lazy Bettor’s Guide to the Kentucky Derby: 3 Easy Angles.” While writing the book, he also devised the Lazy Line™ for betting NFL games. Beginning in week 13 of the 2013 season, the Lazy Line picks went public on lazybettor.com and turned a profit for the span of games from week 13 through the Super Bowl.


    A former writer for The Racing Times, you can now find Roger’s work at http://lazybettor.com and/or reach him via e-mail at lazybettor@hotmail.com.
