    Garden Pests and Woes of the 2022 Growing Season Episode 77

    Today we play a little game of "Never have I ever..." Garden edition. This has been such a weird year all around for weather, pests, plant diseases etc and many of us are experiencing some "firsts" in the garden no matter how seasoned we are. I read what our listeners posted about what’s happening in their yards, as well as Horticulturist Liz Hamilton teaches us how to tackle the dreaded Squash Bug!

Super helpful!

I’ve listened to every episode over the last few months and love this podcast. I’m looking forward to using the knowledge I’m gaining in my current yard and am super excited to use it designing my next yard where we’re building our new home. I feel truly inspired to grow beautiful plants in our climate while conserving water. Great resources for our state. Thank you Jana and all of your guests!
