How To Turn Off Social Media, Jump starting your car, seed starting, and can you jump start a car with a Toyota Prius? Listen to GardenFork Radio to find out.
Rick and Eric talk about seed starting, and what kind of bulbs to use in your seed starting grow light. We have some great seed starting videos, Watch 5 Seed Starting Videos Here, about how to start and grow seedlings.
Its still a bit early to start seeds here in the Northeast, but you might want to start if you live farther south. Rick is once again going to graft tomatoes, after his tomato success last year. I believe some companies sell grafted seedlings. have to check on that.
What kind of bulbs should you use in your grow light? Can you use regular fluorescent bulbs in a grow light? Rick and Eric talk about what kind of light bulbs to use in your grow lights, and talk about LED lights as well.
Eric reads a viewer mail from Kent of Grace Note Farm who runs a small scale farm. Kent is also a mac computer expert, and Rick is interested in an SSD, solid state hard drive.
Eric suggested introducing Kent to Daniel of Jacks Farm Radio podcast.
Rick talks about a blog post he wrote on his site about how social media distracts one from actually getting things done. Rick likes two programs, one is Freedom, and Anti-Social. These two apps turn off the world of the internet and allow you to focus on getting things done. They turn off the social media, so you can get things done.
Eric tells how he does not read email in the morning, but makes himself work on GardenFork, creating content instead of consuming content.
We touch on Beekeeping and Rick talks a bit about africanized bees.
Rick talks about an app called Last Pass, which he likes, and it also offers credit monitoring. We also share ways to make each password for different sites unique yet ones you can remember.
I hope that credit monitoring comes to Canada from Lastpass. I've been using them for a while. I just let them make the secure password so I have a unique, random, password for all my sites. Well, all my new sites - I change them as I login and see they are one of my old standards. As long as I can login to Lastpass I don't need to worry about remembering passwords. I can login on the web or use the app on my phone.
