    Looking for Delicate Give (Rantathon!)

    Rants are the only thing on the menu this week — from newbies Alex English and Danny Pellegrino, plus familiar faces Guy Branum, Emily Heller, Erin Ryan, Megan Gailey, Josh Gondelman, and Danielle Perez. From white celebrities to White Lotus (SPOILERS!), celebrating birthdays but not Meg Ryan, love on islands but not on Netflix, and more. Lots to complain about. Spin the wheel.

Not enough talk about Compost

I’ve been listening to Emily’s Garden Show for some time now and I enjoy it ( pun intended) But I find the show delves so much into voting rights and incumbents and a whole bunch of topics that are not fertilizer centered.

We had a dry summer. What are we to do to protect shrubs ? Which outdoor potted plants need to come in ?

Love it!

Keep going! :)
