Several months ago I mentioned on the podcast that I was going to do a book club discussion of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden and I finally got around to finishing the book and chatting with Elizabeth, who was also a guest on Episode 1-7 last spring. Both of us are avid book readers so it was great to sit down and chat about yet another book—we’re big Outlander and Anne of Green Gables fans as evidenced at the end of the episode! If you have any comments about your experience with the book or any of the movie adapations, feel free to leave a comment on the blog!

Last fall Trey Watson with Legg Creek Farm reached out to me, requesting to be a guest on the podcast. It took a few false starts before we coordinated a time to sit down and chat. Trey was releasing his latest book, The Lazy Gardener’s Guide to Easy Edibles and wanted to spread the word. He’s authored several other books, including books on southern fruit trees as well as children’s books, and runs Legg Creek Farm, a mail-order fruit tree farm just outside of Nacogdoches, Texas. We chatted about his books as well as some of the interesting edibles he highlighted in his book and talked about fruit tree varieties that do well for southern gardens. If you are a southern gardener looking to add fruit trees to your garden, this is a must listen!
I came across Linda’s blog five or six years ago when I was searching to find out if carrot tops were edible. When I came across her beautiful blog I was hooked from then on, and watched as she evolved from gardener to cookbook author. In addition to all of this, Linda is an avid outdoor enthusiast and goes to some pretty epic places in her region of the country with her husband and daughter. It was awesome to have Linda on the podcast to discuss her garden (she’s only been gardening 7 years, which meant she was relatively new to gardening when I first found her blog!) and to find out more about her cookbooks, The CSA Cookbook and The New Camp Cookbook. We had a great conversation and I think you will enjoy learning about her garden as well as hearing about some interesting edibles that you might not have thought about growing. Some day I will have to sit down with her to talk more about her epic outdoor adventures!
