the presenter: Beekman 1802 is aTV show,mercantile, bestsellingcook-book andmemoir, website and tourism destination all inspired by the Beekman 1802 Farm in Sharon Springs, NY.When Josh Kilmer-Purcell (advertising executive and NY Times bestselling author of I Am Not Myself These Days and The Bucolic Plague)and his partner Brent Ridge (physician and former Vice President of Healthy Living for Martha Stewart Om-nimedia) purchased the historic Beekman 1802 Farm in 2007, they had no idea that it would launch one of the fastest grow-ing lifestyle brands in the country. (Source: Nasdaq) Originally just a weekend getaway from their hectic NYC lives, the farm became their lifeline after both men lost their jobs within one month of each other during the recession of 2008. Faced with possible foreclosure, the pair made a decision: if they were go-ing to save their farm, they would have to make it profitable.After taking in a neighboring farmer and his herd of beloved dairy goats, Ridge and Kilmer-Purcell began producing soaps and cheese. As other neighbors taught them how to farm, Ridge and Kilmer-Purcell shared their city-honed skills: starting a web-site and mercantile. The men began working with several other local farmers and artisans to market their goods, and the entire village came together to host seasonal festivals, which are now attended by thousands of visitors from around the globe.Soon the press began noticing this little farm and village that refused to give up, including the New York Times,Daily News, and USA Today. A television network launched areality showabout their effort The Fabulous Beekman Boys, now airing on Cooking Channel which spread the Beekman message of hard work, liv-ing seasonally, and neighborly sharing around the globe.In 2012, the duo competed and won the grand prize in CBSsThe Amazing Race.Over 10 million viewers watched for 12 weeks as Ridge and Kilmer-Purcell beat 20 other competitors in a 45,000-mile race around the world through 12 cities in nine different countries.Beekman 1802 has proven that a farm can be much bigger than its fences. The farm might just be one place on a map, but they count as their neighbors folks from all around the world.roger swAinHost, The Victory Gardensaturday, February 22 at 1pm; sunday, February 23 at 12pmAbout the presenter: Roger Swain, the man with the red suspenders, is recog-nized by millions as host ofThe Victory Garden, televisions longest-running gardening show.

Trixie is a Roadster Deluxe with two pairs of spare shoes each located in the side fender wells. Shes been on quite a journey, and recently went to live with a new family who rebuilt her rear end, put new brakes on her, replaced the electrical, and finally got her back on the road again.

We here in Rhode Island have good and bad soils. Typically in the northern part of the state soils are rocky, sandy and low in nutrition. In the southern part of the state you are the benefactors of Glacial Till depositing all the good soil there. The soils there are loamy and free of stones and have good organic content. What are you to do if you live in the poor soil areas? Here are some hints.Add organic compost: This black gold will return fertility to the soil in a balanced way without the leaching of nutrients into our ponds and water systems. The compost also brings in natural microorganisms that will improve conditions. The de-composed matter also helps with aeration.Add lime to acidic soils: Our soils tend to be very acidic, a condition many plants cannot tolerate. Adding lime to the soil will bring up the PH and allow for improved plant growth. Be patient: it takes three to five years of applications to get to a desired level.Mulch: Mulching soils keep moisture in when soil layers are thin. Mulch also helps by increasing the organic matter. Use a two-inch layer using too much will hurt plant growthAeration: Turn your soil in beds each season. This helps with air pockets, a key factor in healthy plant growth. This will also help with growing your lawn. Testing: Have your soils professionally tested. This is the first step in improving your conditions at home. You can bring a sam-ple to the URI Outreach Center and have it tested by their Master Gardeners. Call the URI Gardening hotline at 1-800-448-1011 or 401-874-4836; they open for the season in the first week of March.Good Luck.Chuck Carberry is the Garden Designer for the RI Spring Flower & Garden Show.It All Starts with the SoilPhotography: James Jones1-800-794-3174beautifulfence.com paulbenson@beautifulfence.com"When you think of Fencin'Call Benson" Paul W.
