I moved away from Phoenix about a year ago, and I just remembered how I would use to listen to Rosie on the weekends with my Dad, and it brought back some good memories. Thanks for the quality show and thanks for making it into a podcast so I can still listen even though I’m in Minnesota now!
I love Rosie’s on the House. I grew up listening to them and super excited that now I won’t miss an episode
A wealth of knowledge
I thoroughly enjoy the gardening hour. A fantastic hour of information on gardening specific to Arizona and the different climates. Information you won't find in national gardening magazines.
