**One thing I want to mention about Denny’s episode is it truly is the very first Organic Gardener Podcast (OGP) episode recorded and I had to sit on my porch for quiet, so there is a chipmunk who makes a bit of sound in the background.

Gardening is not an exact science…know that things don’t always cooperate…weather/soil/ remember to supplement nutrients…don’t get frustrated cause it happens to everyone…ask a veteran, learn from your records and keep detailed notes…
