We talk about how to compost, and Eric tells of of his idea to reduce traffic congestion with zipper merges.
Rick talks about putting low rolling resistance tires on his Prius, and we recall some of the information that Daniel of MPGomatic http://www.mpgomatic.com/ told us. Listen to his appearance on GF Radio here.
We then get into hyper-miling, which Mike and Eric talked about on GF Radio here.
How To Compost is the next subject, with the new GardenFork How To compost video on composting. we talk about how to make a compost pile, and Rick wants to get an electric leaf shredder. Hot and cold composting is talked about, Rick has some suggestions on how to build a hot compost pile. We read some viewer mail and and answer composting questions. Can you just put vegetable scraps into your garden? How does the cold winter affect composting? We touch on pit composting and fence post composting as well.
Rick again is harvesting leaves collected by his neighbors, they do all the work and Rick gets free compost material for his garden beds. The electric shredder will help break down those leaves. The smaller the pieces of material, the faster they will break down.
Rick points out we did not talk about worm composting, aka vermicomposting. we plan on making a how to worm compost video, watch Rick’s excellent how to build a worm composter video here.
We move onto street photography, and the rights of people to take photographs, and Eric asks what are the rights of people whose photo is being taken? Rick brings up a recent court ruling that allows citizens to take cell phone video of police in public situations. Rick posted about this on his site here.
Finally, we would like to hear from you about other independent podcasts that you like. We love the podcasts from NPR, etc, but we would like to promote other indie podcasts.
