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.

LOVE it!

Great podcast with lots of practical advice. Even if you do not live in the northwest, this podcast is super helpful.

It is really is like an encyclopedia.

This podcast is such a great resource for both seasonal and crop-specific vegetable garden knowledge. It’s thorough, interesting, and practical.
