"ZEITGEIST SUMMER" continues to sizzle on as today on the 'kast, we delve into 2008's AMERICAN GOTHIC EP. If Zeitgeist was the big swing to prove the Pumpkins still had their rock chops, this iTunes-exclusive continuation of the Zeitgeist project represented the pendulum swinging in the other direction, reestablishing SP's mastery of the "softer" side of things. We're filling in the gaps of our Pumpkins history with this one, gang. 2008 was a heady time for your hosts and (in addition to being the year we met!) our Pumpkin antennas were not fully plugged in at the time of its online release. After addressing the ele-font in the room... we have a great time digging deep into this textured, crunchy EP, exploring the meaning of “thrumming” and discussing how "The Rose March" hit Frank at exactly the right moment. We'll lay roses at your feet 'til you decide there is something great in you, Pumpkinheads! ❤️ How to support the 'kast: MERCH Our PATREON buymeacoffee.com/Pumpkast Please rate and review us!

Fifteen years ago the Pumpkins released their infamous, quasi-political, strangely prescient comeback album, ZEITGEIST. It was originally rolled out in an array of different colored CD and digital versions with slightly different tracklists, but today we're merging them all into one 16-track "complete" version of the album. A sort of unofficial "Rainbow Edition" if you will. We dive deep into each of these tracks, really savoring ones like "Stellar" and "Ma Belle" that us basic red-version kids never got to fully experience at the time of the album's release. We also contemplate the massive weight of expectations a band must feel when coming back after seven years sans two original members, the Danny Elfman collab track that almost was, and the hot take: are several of these songs expressions of Billy's love for Jimmy? Discuss. All that plus the big questions: Was Zeitgeist Billy's response to the state of the nation...of Rock? Is this a 2000s rock radio album or an ode to rip-ass Scorpions rock of the '70s and '80s? And finally, is it STILL considered underrated when most of the fanbase laments its absence from streaming services? This episode has it all, including an interruption from a black cat trying to kill a squirrel in front of us. A million watts of sound can't compare... to the fun we had talking about this album! WE. ARE. STARZ. We arrrreeeeeeeee! How to support the 'kast: MERCH Our PATREON buymeacoffee.com/Pumpkast Please rate and review us!

This week, Meg and Alex talk about the cultural narrative around dumping trash in alleys and how when we assume a place is one way, our collective actions tend to perpetuate or maintain the status quo. Then the two recap the third week of the We Got This Summer Program and share some exciting updates in the neighborhood.
It's been a while, but it's a new listener profile and today Frank talks to a one-of-a-kind Pumpkins fan... Hairstylist by Day, Burlesque by Night, Activist ALL the time...the Smashing Pumpkin of Bump & Grind...Mone't Ha-Sidi! Frank and Mone't chat about the highs and lows of being a Black Woman in Pumpkin fandom, making Pumpkins friends for life, ticket-buying etiquette, the lack of love for Josh Groban at a Bridge School Benefit show (the band DID notice) and how unfair it is that the Pumpkins don't get the proper accolades they deserve as some bands do.

It takes commitment to grow pumpkins weight 1,000+ lbs. Brandon grower Tom Montsma says it takes an hour per day per plant from April to September. He's trying to grow three this year. Growers are wrapping up pollination season, which has to be done by hand. And Tom is seeing success in his garden. Twenty days after pollination is when the pumpkins will start putting on roughly 40 lbs per day. That's a big snack for rodents! Tom says growers have extensive regimes to keep away pests, weeds and disease. Some even circle their pumpkins with mouse traps to keep away vermin. In this heat, Tom put out irrigation to cool the plant down. Sometimes frozen water jugs on the soil will do the trick.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

In this weeks episode of Master My Garden Podcast I chat with Clare Rooney from Willowpatch Farm. Clare is a breath of fresh air through her Instagram and new YouTube channel (links below) where she talks about her success's and failures in her garden. Keeping it very real that everything is not always perfect. We have a great chat about growing pumpkins, tomatoes and lots of other veg as well as flowers which makes their way onto willowpatch farm's honesty stand and soon to appear in farmers markets. Clare shares her tips for growing giant pumpkins, perfect tomatoes and we have a long chat about peat free composts. When it comes to peat free composts there is no doubt that we should be moving away from using peat based growing media in the long term. But the discussion and movement is a bit imbalanced at present I think. For example you will see people online promoting the use of coir composts as a environmentally friendly solution and maybe it is if you live near the source but for Ireland,UK & many other regions coir is 100% not an environmentally friendly option given that it travels half way around the world to get to us and needs vast amounts of water to wet it before you can grow in it. Many of the peat free composts available have issues and are not consistent in quality. Clare and John talk about he issues they have had with poor germination, poor follow on growth etc. Its an open and honest discussion and shows that while peat free is ideal there is a bigger picture that we all should look at when it comes to making out compost choices for growing our garden. Over the long term you would hope that a consistent, affordable, quality alternative will become available to all gardeners. Its a great chat with Clare and you can follow her here.

A misunderstood and underappreciated album for its time? Sounds like our Billy! Today on the 'kast we're discussing Billy Corgan's first solo outing, TheFutureEmbrace. An underrated "electronic" (but having more in common with shoegaze) album featuring some refreshing, surprising elements that for whatever reason (many reasons) didn't resonate with the public and some fans at the time. It also didn't help that Billy announced the reformation of the Pumpkins the day of the album's release, possibly undercutting any deeper and repeated dives listeners would have given it. Lucky for you, THE SMASHING PUMPKAST exists and WE'RE taking that deep dive into an album there's LOTS love about. Or dare we say...embrace? We also talk about the "bonus" track "Tilt" and ponder if it suffered the same fate as "Let Me Give The World To You." All things change, including one's experience with this album over time. Enjoy!

In this episode, Lowell and Eldon catch up to talk about the past month or so here at the farm. Of particular interest to us recently have been several freezing temperatures that have caused some pretty major damage to our PYO strawberry patch, even though we did all that we could to protect the blooms and buds.
Cole joins to talk about Dying Light 2, a game that feels a lot like its predecessor with all the fun parts taken out. We discuss the various ways in which they ruined a perfectly good game by filling it full of wonky mechanics, endless filler and tons of stilted dialogue. Also discussed: horny gamers, end of the world plans, slapping comedians, cringey stage banter and how Dying Light 2 is a lot like Idiocracy - but completely unintentionally. Whoops!

The Friday Newsletter | Daily Gardener Community Historical Events 1699 Birth of John Bartram, American botanist, and explorer. John founded the first botanical garden in America, and Linnaeus called him the "greatest natural botanist in the world." Like many botanists of his time, John was born to a farming Quaker family in Pennsylvania. He never forgot his rural roots, and he always thought of himself as a farmer first. When asked to describe how he ended up in botany, he wrote, One day, I was very busy [plowing]… and being weary I ran under a tree to repose myself. I cast my eyes on a daisy; I plucked it mechanically and viewed it with more curiosity than common country farmers are wont to do, and observed ... many distinct parts, some perpendicular, some horizontal. ...I thought about it continually, at supper, in bed, and wherever I went.... On the fourth day I hired a man to plow for me and went to Philadelphia. [I bought] a Latin grammar [and] ...applied to a neighboring schoolmaster, who in three months taught me Latin enough to understand Linnaeus... Then I began to botanize all over my farm. 1907 On this day, a school garden for boys only was started at a school in Rhode Island. A summary report was published with the State Board of Education. Here's what the report said, On March 26th, all the boys wrote for catalogs, some sending several letters or cards. It proved a valuable letter lesson in letter-writing and geography as they looked at the places they had sent the letters and inquired about distances, railroads, and mail trains. More than fifty attractive catalogs were received. Tomatoes, lettuce, and radishes were planted in boxes ready for early transplanting. The seeds were obtained through a member of Congress, and despite all the rumors regarding the poor quality of government seed, [they] proved excellent. Two boys found an old sink in a dump. This was sunk in the middle of the West yard, partly filled with cement and now used as a birdbath. Each boy chose several vegetables from a list of corn, squash, onions, carrots, beans, beets, lettuce, radishes, pumpkins, potatoes, peas, and parsnips. The corn and a row of sunflowers were planted next to the fence; the other vegetables [were planted] according to height, living lettuce, and radishes in the front. Difficulties: There have been many difficulties in the way. Most of the work has been done outside of school hours, at noon when some of the boys have to hurry home or at night when they carry papers. Most discouraging of all, vegetables have been stolen and Gardens trampton almost nightly. Effect: But the effect of the garden work on the boys has been excellent. First of all it's giving them an outside interest. They have learned courtesy and generosity and showing visitors the garden and giving away their vegetables. Toads which we have raised from eggs are to be put in the garden when school closes. There has been less time for running about the streets and cigarette smoking. Since the gardens were started, there's only been one case of truancy and very little absence. Ten or fifteen minutes hard work during the school hours has often served to bring a cross, restless boy back to quiet and pleasant. Of the 23 boys, 18 have made gardens at home and most of them are doing well. A copy of one boy's notebook will give an idea of the garden from the boy's standpoint. March 25: Began to pick rocks. Got a backache. Wrote for catalogs. March 26: Laid out 23 beds - [each] 6 by 14 ft March 27: Planted radishes, lettuce, tomatoes in boxes. Miss Allen paid $0.25 for loam. May 1: Put down sink for Birds bath. May 3rd: Planted pumpkins, potatoes, beans, beets, lettuce, radishes. May 15, 16, 17: Cleaned up West yard. Got loam. Planted shrubs and trees. Planted marigolds, candytuft and poppies, Boston Ivy, cornus, weigelia, lilac, crab. It looks slick. May 20th: These seeds are up in my bed: radish, lettuce, beans. May 21: brought Bush to school. Went to Arlington for ferns. Pumpkins up. Put violets beside Birds tub. June 12th: Brought home 10 radishes. They were good ones. Saw a jay in our bath and a chipping sparrow. June 17: Mr Randall out. Hoeing. A lot of teachers came. Took home lettuce June 18: Sent radishes to Mr. Small. A man and lady came to see if we will get a prize. June 19: Everything in my garden is growing fine. It's a good thing. We have spent $11.45. 1913 Birth of James C. Rose, American landscape architect, and author. A high school dropout, James was expelled from Harvard University as a landscape architecture major because they disapproved of his design style. James fulfilled a lifelong dream despite his personal struggles with educational institutions when he created The James Rose Center for design study and landscape research. In From Creative Gardens (1958), James wrote, A garden is an experience. It is not flowers or plants of any kind. It is not flagstone, brick, grass, or pebbles. It is not a barbeque or a fiberglass screen. It is an experience. If it were possible to distill the essence of a garden, I think it would be the sense of being within something while still out of doors. That is the substance of it; for until you have that, you do not have a garden at all. 1923 Birth of Norman Thelwell, English cartoonist. He is remembered for his humorous drawings of ponies and horses. In his book, From a Plank Bridge by a Pool (1978), he wrote, When I look at the tree in the dark days of winter, its huge green-black skeleton silhouetted against the ashen sky, or hear its tracery seething in a westerly gale as I lie snug and warm in bed, I wonder who it was planted this giant for so many generations to enjoy. And in the balmy days of summer when its leaves are overlaid like the breast feathers of a great bird to form high domes of rounded foliage, I wish I could call back this gentle spirit of the past and say, “This is your tree. Look at it now, for it is gracious beyond words.” Grow That Garden Library™ Book Recommendation The Cook's Herb Garden by Jeff Cox and Marie-Pierre Moine This book came out in 2010, and the subtitle is: grow harvest cook. As someone who loves to grow herbs, this is one of my favorite books on herbs because it features beautiful photography of over 120 culinary herbs. Then, Jeff and Marie-Pierre offer more than 30 delicious, practical recipes that show you what you can do with your herbs - everything from making your own salad dressings and marinades to flavored butter, pestos, herbal teas, and cordials; in addition to seasoning your favorite meals. And I love what Jeff writes. He says, I always think of culinary herbs as the champions of the kitchen garden. And he reminds us that their volatile oils serve a purpose: they were the compounds that plants used to defend themselves from insects and fungi. As for Marie, she says that, As a cook herbs are my best friends. Just a handful brightens up the concoctions that I make in my kitchen. And she also reminds us that when space is at a premium, herbs should be a priority. So whether you're going to store some ginger root in the freezer, or a roll of herb butter or even just a little cilantro ice cube. They are all well-worth their shelf space. This book is 192 pages of fantastic herbs -and the photography is top-notch. This is a DK book - and it looks like it. You can get a copy of The Cook's Herb Garden by Jeff Cox and Marie-Pierre Moine and support the show using the Amazon link in today's show notes for around $4. Botanic Spark 2011 Death of Elizabeth Taylor, British-American actress. She was the highest-paid movie star in the 1960s. She won two academy awards - for BUtterfield 8 (1960) and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) In 1999, she was named the seventh-greatest female screen legend of Classic Hollywood cinema by the American Film Institute. Elizabeth was an early AIDS activist, and she founded the National AIDS Research Foundation. In 1990, she championed Ryan White Care Act to stop discrimination against people with H.I.V. One of her tactics was to send lavender-scented notes to senators and congressmen that simply read, "I think you should see this," along with detailed information about H.I.V. Elizabeth's Bel Air home garden was located behind the swimming pool. A private tropical paradise, the garden featured her favorite flowers - gardenias and lilies of the valley - along with birds of paradise. Tucked beneath lush palms and bamboo, a small greenhouse held her collection of orchids. In 2004, Elizabeth's mobility declined, and she stopped walking through her beloved garden. In 1987, Elizabeth was one of the first celebrities to launch a signature fragrance: White Diamonds. Her garden served as the muse for her fragrance. The White Diamonds scent is made up of Italian neroli, Egyptian tuberose, narcissus, and Turkish rose. It has generated more than $1.5 billion in sales, and Revlon reports that four bottles of the scent are sold per minute in the United States, and a bottle is sold every 15 seconds worldwide. Elizabeth died at 79 from congestive heart failure. She left instructions that her funeral service started 15 minutes late as she wanted to be late for her own funeral. Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener And remember: For a happy, healthy life, garden every day.

Our guest today was a National Proficiency Finalist in the category of Fruit Production in 2021. Jacob Hinton has a deep farming and FFA legacy in his family. However, his parents did not start the farm that he has been growing up on until 2006. They had a vision, and Jacob has been able to grow up working on that farm and helping that vision to come to fruition (pun intended). Hinton's Orchard is where Jacob calls home. And on this farm he tends to flower gardens, fruit trees, a corn maze and a pumpkin patch. He also gives hay rides, and manages much of the agritoursim and apple sales that take place in the fall. Jacob is learning a ton at his own home. Everything from crop production, pest control and customer service are available for him to learn. And, this cornucopia of experience led him to Indianapolis last October as a National Proficiency Finalist.

We are in the season of Halloween! The shops are full of scary masks, pumpkins, goulish decorations and costumes, but where did this tradition come from? Tune into this episode of the podcast as we chat about the Celtic connection between Halloween & Samhain, and it's rich Pagan past! Why do people dress up in scary costumes? How did 'Trick or Treating' begin and is it just about the candy? Why are black cats considered unlucky and what is it with all the pumpkins?! We learn the story of 'Stingy Jack' and how his legend created the Jack-o'lantern we know today. Halloween was also a time of divination, in particular to find out who your true love would be (and who would pop your Hazelnut...) This ep is a nice lead up to the turning of the wheel at the end of the month- and the festival of Beltane!! Be sure to tune in next week to hear all about this fire festival of fertility, sensuality, beauty, and sex... Have a witchy question to ask?
