The Gestalt Gardener
The Gestalt Gardener | Flag Functions
Felder Rushing does not have all the answers for your southern garden and really gets put to the test during this round of gardening questions. From algae to conifers, and spotted greens this garden party is full of questions and a few cheesy tunes that will reset the most scattered of minds. Also, a few callers indicate that the new state flag and its magnolia were featured heavily during this week's presidential inauguration. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener | Mississippi Snow
When Mississippi gets snow it is viewed as a treat. But often, only a quick one. Schools and offices are closed for the day. Scenic snowy snapshots are everywhere you turn. Yet and still the snow is gone by the next day or the next full sun. This year Felder was able to get a few snapshots of his snow garden and starts this garden party reminiscing about our short-lived winter wonderland. He also brings some more good vibes to the new year with two cheesy tunes. All while answering another round of southern gardening questions. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener | Really 2021?
We are eight days into the new year and there is already plenty to discuss. Yet in true Felder fashion, today's garden party discusses the positive side of life, even if worms are in your fruit and voles are wrecking your garden. This edition of the Gestalt Gardener is the first one after the holiday break and the call volume reflected this fact. Even in January, we can still do what we do best: Get Dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener | Bye Bye 2020
Felder is saying goodbye to 2020 and welcoming the new year with a type of optimism that is truly is own. Being grounded for most of the year Felder planted a garden, had some plants grow and not grow, and did a zoom meeting with minimum technical difficulties. With everything considering it has been a great year for Felder and his flowers. As always during today's show, he answers your southern gardening questions but also pays tribute to a true Mississippi icon.
The Gestalt Gardener | Decorating with Rick Griffin
Last week Felder brought in his handpainted okra pod Santa Christmas tree ornament. Today he brings in an entire box filled with handmade ornaments. He also brings his good friend and landscaper, Rick Griffin to show off his collection of handmade and Mississippi soil-grown ornaments. They chat about their love for just letting things grow as they will, and manage to answer some southern gardening questions within the hour. Also, Felder pays tribute to a truly once in a generation musical artist. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener | Garden Ornaments
Making a christmas tree ornament from an okra pod is truly on brand for Felder Rushing. So is telling a caller "I don't know", when the question is beyond his knowledge or willhouse. Today Felder stays true to form and answers your southern gardening questions (when he can) and shares a cheesy tune that is not quite an ear worm but makes you want to forget you heard it. From cutting back roses, to monkey grass seeds this edition of the Gestalt Gardener brings the levelity you need.
The Gestalt Gardener | Peppers Galore
The trinidad scorpion pepper is one of the hottest peppers in the world. Only the carolina reaper measures higher on the Scoville scale, and Felder just happens to bring one to the studio for today's show. During this round of southern gardening questions he discloses his love for a good pepper and shares a cheesy tune that he only knows how to find. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener | Snapdragons
Snapdragons are seen this time of year just like all the colors that make fall a rainbow of reds, oranges, and brown. Felder reminds us that these beautiful colors are always there but the spring and summer chlorophyll dominates most of the year. With another round of southern gardening questions that criss cross the state, Felder talks about his weekly haul, and provides a cheery cheesy tune to keep things in perspective. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener | Ugly Tomatoes
Ugly tomates! No problem! Felder knows everything you plant will not come out picture perfect. So when some of his tomotes have more "character" then others he knows not to throw them out with the trash. Like always on this edition of the Gestalt Gardener Felder shares his brand of gardening advice and brings a cheesy tune perfect for post election feelings. Let's get dirty!
