The Weekend Gardener is being SUPER-SIZED!!

Well, it's official, The Weekend Gardener is being extended to 3 hours each Sunday - starting this weekend, July 3rd we'll go live from 10 am to 1 pm! That means 50% more garden fun, 50% more great guests and 50% more time for our wonderful callers to take part in our weekly giveaways and ask their gardening questions!

This weekend, we're going to have a super busy show - the wonderful Marjorie Harris, Canada's gardening queen is going to join me to talk about frugal gardening and more. (She's soooo cool!)

Also, we'll talk about backyard buggies with the authors of the book, The Secret Life of Backyard Bugs. I absolutely love this book. The photography (done by the authors) is AMAZING! I do have a copy to give away, but I can honestly say that this is a book my children have loved just as much as I have. Simply fantastic!

Also, we'll hear about urban farming in Dartmouth.. there's much controversy afoot and Jean Snow from Lake City Farm will fill us in on the details.

Plus, Sheri Ann Richerson, the co-author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Year Round Gardening is going to join me! We've been e-mailing for months, and I'm really looking forward to talking to her about growing year round. I also have a copy of her book to give away!

So much more.. Please tune in from 10 to 1 pm, Sunday July 3rd on News 95.7 FM, News 91.9 FM, News 88.9 FM or live online at www.news957.com

  2. It's about time that growing veggies had its rightful place in the gardening world. All those flower people turn their noses up at allotment people. I think the tide is finally turning. Good luck with the show.
