Throwback Episode: Vegetables Love Flowers

Categories: Podcast

We are turning the scope to horticulture this week. Tune in for this throwback episode from 2022 where I spoke with Carla Smith, Pottawatomie County OSU 4H/Horticulture educator about warm season gardening. Plants that will be discussed include tomatoes, peppers, squash, pumpkins, cucumbers, and watermelons. Plant timing, soil temperature, rotation, small/patio gardens, pollinators, pollinator pairing will all be on tap.
