|I love spring bulbs so this podcast was a favorite!
Every spring the Violet Wood Sorrel (Oxalis violacea) abundantly pops up everywhere in our yard with those pretty pink blooms We also have the invasive Creeping Wood Sorrel (Oxalis corniculata) here in Florida but thankfully it's not too much of an issue on our property.
I love growing Caladiums (Caladium) for their beautiful leaves and this podcast made me remember that I need to get my recent bulb purchase from Caladium Bulbs 4 Less in the ground ... or potted up! In the past I'd purchase bulbs from the big box stores and there is truly no comparison in size and health to what Bill's company offers!
The chat about the children sure made me smile; all of your children are adorable and it's great when they join in the podcasts; the recent podcast with Jon as co-host was really informative and fun, he is growing into a handsome young man! It would be a lot of fun to have the 4 year old join in a future podcast; if his attention span is like many that age he may not last very long but I know he'd add smiles to the chat!

|I haven't listened yet but I'm sure I'll end up adding something new to my spring planting list.
These podcasts are great for long, boring drives to work. Granted I have limited technology so I have to burn them to CD's. Far better than radio and I end up listening more than once so the information provided sticks with me and if I forget something I can go right back to the source. I add music files to fill the CD but mark them by the particular podcast for future reference. Tools in the kit.

|Don't forget the unusual for a spring planted bulb. Only hardy to zone 8, but so worth growing.
Some more for spring planting:
Another great podcast. I have some lilies coming in the mail the end of the week, can't wait to get them in the ground. And I can hear the frogs.
Some day I will try one of the elephant ears.

|I loved the frogs in the background! We are moving this spring, so I don't have a spot yet to plant bulbs. This gives me many ideas for next year. I hope to have at least am acre to work with. 1/2 for flowers and 1/2 for edibles with an orchard mixed in.
Yes, your four year old should have a chance to talk about his "yummy tomatoesh"! I have a four year old as well so it would be fun for him to listen to a fellow gardener his age.
