Great Fundamental Gardening Podcast!!!
This podcast is well done and informative. I listened to a lot of the episodes in real time a couple of years ago and I still come back to it in 2021 as a great garden resource. Just overall good stuff!
Invaluable for new gardeners
I love this podcast! As a first time gardener I’ve learned so much, and I’ve even been inspired to build two more raised beds. I also bought their book, High Yield Vegetable Gardening, and it’s been a great reference.
Great podcast with lots of practical advice. Even if you do not live in the northwest, this podcast is super helpful.
